    The mobo cradle was constructed using super glue (cyno).
    I grinded off the treaded pegs of some riser mounts leaving a treaded hex, dropped these into holes in the cradle and super glued them in place.

    The whole cradle was glued into the book using pva to allow positioning and then i used no nails to gap fill around the outside to neaten it up.


    As far as temps go i had the system running last night for several hours under normal use and i could comfortably touch both the north bridge and CPU so about 20-25D c

    hey, congrats on the mod, uhh, not sure how long ago you did this, but i saw it on the nominations page.
    Where did you find that psu, i mean, does it power the mobo and cd-rom and HD just fine ?
    whats the deal with it? is that the whole thing or is there more to it outside of the book ?

    ANY people's knowledge would be great as well as a north american dealer (canadian)

    THanks

    Just Finished it.

    The only thing on the out side is a laptop style block transformer.

    All the bits are available at mini-itx not sure if they ship worldwide.

    The PSU is rated at 55w and runs the mobo, 1x Hdd (Full or laptop), and a cdrom (laptop only).

    Out of general interest what nomination page?
