    I can picture it... Somebody rubs their feet on the carpet and touch the heatsink... BOOM it went... Unless it's grounded. :hehe:

    I think it looks more like this one: http://www.mini-itx.com/store/hush-offer.asp and only $966.58 (£513) for a complete system.

    BTW, the Mappit case is $1058 (£581).

    Both more than the $700 ferox has spent.

    Also BTW, I have a bunch of those aluminum heatsinks. I have an identical pair to the ones ferox used, plus a pair of non-anodized ones. I also have a set of much larger heatsinks: one pair black and pair non-anodized. I also have a bunch small square heatsinks

    THE POINT IS.... every since I saw this project, I've wanted to do something similar. I was able to collect these heatsinks (for free) but all other parts cost money I don't have. So I wait...and wait...and wait...

    www.cfide.co.uk I bought mine from this online store, situated in the UK.


    He, he! It will be connected to a TV monitor, and if you take a close look at my remotecontroll, you will see that it has an brushed metall finish! :thumb:


    It's five 5mm leds placed in holes situated around the edge of the plexi piece. Like this:

    Yes it does. Only time the machine really works hard is when i'm pausing/showshifting a TV show, but it handles it.
    I also could have wished a better soundcard, but it does it's job!


    Of course, it's safely grounded and the sensitive electronics is not in contact with the outer shell. Touching the case will be just like touching a normal computer! :)

    It's a "noname", cordless, mini, PS/2, multimedia keyboard with integrated track ball.

    [​IMG]
    I bought it from ELFA, they got an englis webshop at http://www.elfa.se/en/

    Here's a direct link to the product: HERE


    The remote is an SRC-9310 from http://sun-wave.com/ .
    It's an total reconfigurable remote, just connect it to the PC via the USB cable, use the controll software to set up the menus as you prefer. You can also create macros that can be run at a given time. The remote got 16 different menues to switch between so the potential is big!
    This is the only remote i use right now, it has replaced all of my other remotecontrolls.

    The package content.



    [​IMG]
    It's BIG, but it's intended to lie on the table when operated, and if you operate it with two hands it's no BIG deal! :) -After all it's intended to replace the keyboard in most situations.



    [​IMG]
    Here's a "screenshot" of one of the menus i have configured, this is the first page for the reciever.
