    Hi guys...

    ... I'm from germany (that reasons the mistakes) and a brand new member of bit net's community...

    ... this is actually no project log, I just want to present you my new housing for my VIA EPIA M10000. I (and many other german people) believe it's the smallest watercooled pc ever...

    It's measurement is 20*20*20cm. It houses the m10000 from VIA, a Samsung HDD with 120gigs, a Eheim 1046 Pump, the Aquatube & Airplex EVO 120 from Aquacomputer. It has an external 60W fanless psu and a second nic to ensure router capability. It runs with Debian Linux, so I can upgrade the system from the internet (no need for optical drives).

    You can read (if you understand german or trust in babelfish) the whole story (kind of project log) at OCHardware, a german overclocking and casemodding site.

    Now, enough of stupid writing, here are some pics:

    I hope you like my work... i'd be glad to get some feedback!

    My first comment is that it was posted in the wrong forum. All you have are pictures of finished work and no progress shots (pics of the various stages of construction) so it belongs in modding and not the project logs so I moved it.

    My second comment is welcome to the forums and that's some really purdy work you have there. :thumb:

    First: welcome to the forums!

    That is SO beautifully done! :clap: :clap: :clap: You rock, dude! A good example that less is often more!

    But, er... :worried: does an Epia need watercooling? :D

    @eddie_dane...
    ... i'm sorry... i didn't realize that i'm at the wrong place ;)

    @ Nexxo...
    ... of course an EPIA doesn't need watercooling... but it's cool in a different way...

    Thanx...

    ... you're right... not much space inside, but enough for all the stuff... on the other side... not enough for a single finger to poke inside...

    Impressive piece of work sir. What's it made out of? Aluminium? All those edges look really nice. Very clean. :) :thumb:

    Oh, and welcome to the forums. :)

    @ArsoN...
    ... yeah, it's aliminnium. I don't know the english word for 'eloxiert'... it's kind of a "unremovable metallcolour" (don't know how to describe it in english :().

    @sadffffff...
    ... what's a "porthole"? Do you mean the Aquatube-thingy?
