    If you're making enthusiast builds like this and NOT doing stupid things, you're doing this way way wrong.

    If only Streacom could give up on the Macishness, they could fit an mATX board into it, and given us musician-gamers 2 extra PCIE slots for high end multichannel audio or additional thunderbolt USB3.2 Gen1 port cards and such nifty things...

    Having my computer double as a space heater would be pretty cool. Drill a hole in the wall, get some 15-20’ cables, and use it to heat the garage during winter plus get crazy cooling capacity. Just need to remember never to turn it off so the water freezes, or just skip the water cooling.

    you can probably get a diamond tipped drill bit and drill holes in the glass. it would take a long time though and you would have to have a second person spraying water on the drill bit while you do it.

    yes this is for mac users because it only has one usb c port

    all pc cases need some usb 3.0 ports the headphone and microphone ports and don't forget the sd card slot

    Is it possible to build a 3900x (or 3950x later in September) and a 2080ti into this case without sacrificing performance? If so, it would be quite interesting to see a more practical "extreme" build!

    P.S.- Great videos Linus media group, keep up the good work!

    Of course it's over $200... Why are all the decent looking, small form factor cases so damn expensive? I'd really like to build a small powerful, inexpensive PC in the near future, but don't want to spend 10-15% of my budget on the case alone.

    How pathetic one HAS to use overpriced intel cpu and 160$+ cpu cooler just to keep it in check, when one can simply get Ryzen 3700x and its box cooler for much less, and get more performance, not to mention power consumption...

    The Inside Out Mini Watercooler
    Just an idea that I hope someone will do.

    I've seen a lot of mini-ITX builds lately in these shoe box cases. And regardless of how plain and black these things all are, the case builds are often described as "refreshing" due to the lack of RGB. But the truth is, they are just small black boxes that completely get lost in whatever room they are in.

    What I want to see is a build where you use one of these little black shoe boxes, but do a custom water cooled build where the tubes of the loop go outside of the case. Add lights where appropriate.

    Usually, these small cases don't have enough room for custom loops anyway, so break through the walls and build your loop outside. You'd probably want to choose a case where each side of the box mounts independently on a frame so some of the sides can have tubes through them and some are for access to the internals.

    To describe this idea a little more. Picture a small black box with water cooling tubes extending out of the sides of the case. Drill your own holes through the case and route the water loop as you need to up, out, over and around the outside of the case. Same thing with custom RGB lighting either using strips or placing lights near where the water tubes exit/enter the case.

    In this way, the small black shoebox becomes a plain base for what could be a dramatic water and light show.

    What do you think?

    What about a Micro-ITX running an A10-7800k and 64GB of DDR3 RAM and no need for a graphics card plus 100TB Data Center SSD and 1KW PSU and finally installing Windows 10

      DAVID GREGORY KERR 4 months ago

      @James That is what I am running at the minute in a DAA78L Motherboard with 16GB of DDR3 RAM with Builtin Bluetooth/WIFI and also has a Light-on DVD/RW drive that is normally used in a laptop the whole package is called the ACER TC-220 computer.

      DAVID GREGORY KERR the a10 7800 apu line has been discontinued and succeeded by ryzen vega graphics. Your build would work fine but changing the a10 out for a 2200g would be better
