Hope that helps to everyone who is willing to participate in the contest. Sorry for the unclear speech as I have a small speech defect and could not find anybody else to take the video yesterday

That's a beautiful example of a Pico-ITX PC. Round of those corners and my wife would love that.

EXTREMELY difficult trying to describe what you want to do in 50 words though makes everything sound alot more bland and unintresting and forgot to mention and important bit that if i said now would make it sound even more unintresting and boring

I would wallmount it :/

Id conceal it in a standard house brick sized housing so it could be incorporated into a non load bearing section of wall, run power and cabling etc in between the two brick courses to wherever you want the inputs/outputs and make a removable faceplate that could be hidden/rendered over. Maybe leave a few USBs visible as well as the on/off switch.

Could then be used for some kind of house automation project or a sneaky storage point : )

worldwide compo? If so, then big fat kudos for ticking ALL the boxes of what i'd want to see in a mod!

I'll mock up my ideas tonight, i have had something nice in my mind for a long while!

I'm guessing "put it in a case" doesn't really count, does it? That's about the limit of my modding capabilities

MrJay, why wimp out with a non-loadbearing housing; some 6.75mm steel and a little bit of ingeneuity on an internal layout should allow it to be fully loadbearing!

Only idea I have for a case mod is W/C based mod. And even then, I don't have the tools, materials or time to make it sadly.

I did not make up the contest rules - I asked Bit-Tech to create them. The only requirement I gave is that the winner will have to post the modding log and photos here on Bit-Tech forums.

However, the rules Paul came up with seem very fair to me, as:
1) If they allow for longer e-mails, they might not have the time to read everything or might not have the time to read all contest entries.
2) You can send a drawing instead of typing text. The drawing will tell it all.
3) Just consider it as a job interview. You want a job, the HR person tells you, describe why you suit our company in 50 words. You answer - hey, I cannot, it's too short. The HR person says - sorry, you are not qualified then. I know it's harsh, but there is nothing wrong in it. The hiring party (Bit-Tech in this case) can choose the rules.

The winner is entitled (only after he/she starts the project log on Bit-Tech forum) to receive additional stuff of his/her choice worth up to $100 USA. So it can be for example Broadcom HD card + second VGA card, or RAM, or small SSD, or anything else that he/she needs. I hope this info will help you decide to submit your idea.

Taking into account that the only case suitable for this board that exists in the world today is in my hands, and you are not getting it as part of the competition prize, this seems creative enough for me as you would have to make the whole case yourself

Honestly, I think mounting something so tiny as a permanent fixture is a crime. Put a handle on it and make it Optimus Prime's man-purse.

In terms of cooling, size, intrusiveness and just about everything else, that would be using a nuclear missile to crack a nut.

I sent my email.

What I would do, is hit two flies with one hit.
Firstly, build my first ever case mod or even scratch case from wood and therefore make my long-waited dream come true. Secondly, as I'm moving out of town, my parents are left without any PC. This way, I'd get to build my first ever (serious) case mod and then donate it for my parents for web browsing! Idea of the case plan itself remains secret..

Unfortunately it's not a moneyproblem. I just don't have the time to start it out now. I gotta finish my G5, and then it's on to watercooling my carpc.
And it hardly wouldn't be fair to win on the idea and then wait to start the worklog up in september..

That's why I gotta wait.
