    Hi @all


    inside our Cosmos Dragon Project we build a custom enclosure for the Medusa 5.1 Headset Controll Box. We really liked how it turned out, so we thought why not build a mini itx system in that style?

    So we came to the point that we will build a custom Mini Itx Case on Base of an Intel Atom Plattform (2x1,6Ghz), a slot in dvd burner and a small 2,5" HDD.

    We already started the project yesterday...so here is what we got so far...

    Very nice, and I like the size of the case. But the question I have, how will get the fan at the NB-cooler cold air…that means, would you install another fan or something like this in the case, and if yes, where???
    I´m very curious of your next update.

    thx

    @ Sonnenschein.....the small fan will get fresh air through some ventilation openings which we will integrate....atm i´m using this board in a very small case without a fan or airflow and it works very fine with temps around 30 °

    today we made some progress on the next layers and parts which will be used...beside that we also prepared a custom name tag for a sidepanel...but its not finished yet....
