    That is one sweet little mod, looks really cool. the only thing I'm not to sure about is the sound deadening foam, I know it's there for a reason, but just quite suit the build. Apart form that, I really like it....Nice work dude:thumb:

    Hi again!

    I was pretty satisfied with my build. But not the hardware, it worked for just checking internet and watching movies. But I wanted to atleast play Starcraft 2. So I had to upgrade.

    My choice fell on AMD Llano cause I didnt want any seperate graphics card. So I started looking for Mini-Itx cards for Llano, couldnt find any but after some weeks Asus announced their Asus F1A75-I Deluxe. Me likey. Booked the board, and also bought the AMD A8-3850 and 2x4gb Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz. For the cooling I wanted to get some real watercooling, but I didnt have the money so I bought a Antec Kuhler 620. Maybe I get some real watercooling and make it a Cold Winter V.3 ;)

    So the new specs now is this:
    CPU/APU: AMD A8-3850
    Mobo: Asus F1A75-I Deluxe
    RAM: 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz
    PSU: PicoPSU 150W
    SSD: Corsair Force 60GB
    HDD: Samsung Spinpoint 2.5" 1TB
    Antec Kuhler 620
    2x Enermax Cluster 120mm

    Tomorrow Ill start with the pictures. Thanks for now!

    Hi again.

    Couldnt wait so long. Just gonna show some sneak peaks of the hardware and the little "mod" I made to the Antec Kuhler 620. :)

    Yiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiha!
    [​IMG]

    Nice little motherboard, many functions.
    [​IMG]

    This is the "mod" I was talking about. The cooler itself looked kind of boring so I bought some coils and that actually made a big difference, and it fits with the color theme very good.
    [​IMG]

    Remade the sleeving for the harddrives too.
    [​IMG]

    Here you can see the Pico-psu 150W a little. Very nice little piece.
    [​IMG]

    And at last, my little worktable. :)

    See ya! :)

    Its time for the next update I think! :)

    This is a little overview over the system. Remade the sleeving and everything. And btw, Im in love with these Enermax Cluster fans. :D

    Little view of the Pico-Psu. And I know that the sleeving on it sucks there, Im going to redo it.

    And last some pictures of the back. Not so big difference from before though.

    Neat little mod, I like how you made it so simple and tidy! Did you have your own acrylic sheet bender or did you use a different method?

    Thanks. I actually found the acrylic piece like that. It was some some kind of screen/"roof" for a phone. So its a little bit scratched, but I think it makes it kinda cool. Kinda vintage. :)

    Thanks man. :)
