My System Specs

Default AMD E350 in CM V6

Probably the niftiest demo at CES by a longshot:
A CPU Cooling Heatsink With Built In Computer From AMD | PC Perspective

Surprised not many sites reported on this one.

that sounds like a glorious home server/small web server....although i wonder what it does to the heatsink's effectiveness.

Sounds great but what's the impact on having pretty much all of the one side of the heat sink covered? Probably not as much air flow I guess. Think I'd pass unless they do some better design of it possibly somehow mount the board on the top of the heat sink and allow full airflow through the heat sink. But it would be awesome to have like a 5.25" bay mountable version and have front USB ports and power button for easy access and a rear PCI back panel for power, video, audio, etc.


P.S. If any companies are gonna take my 5.25" bay computer idea at least give me a little credit for the idea

It's a nice gimmick, but I'd prefer the Nano-ITX computer use a 5.25" drive bay as the case and use 2x peripheral connectors for power or something. I could actually use something like that so I can run Media Center native on the mini PC and F@H Linux native on the full PC that's enclosing the mini PC.
EDIT: Not to mention how much fun it will be to take a full-tower case and let your friends know that it's housing 10 computers

It doesn't make sense to shorten the life of the mini PC by putting it in the exhaust of one of the hottest parts of a desktop.

Just thinking,, but it seems to be more concept than an actual product. If that is meant to go on sale it is a dumb product... It's like fitting lights on an exhaust pipe.... why?

Something like that in a 5.25" bay, and a built in KVM would be cool though. Turn off the main PC, and flip a switch on the 5.25" bay to change the KB/M, and monitor over to the itx system.
