Hey guys,

This is not the most active place anymore, but I go way back to the Yahoo group days (I think it was yahoo..)

This is a positively tiny 18 liter mini itx case with enough room for full size cpu coolers, graphics cards and powersupplies, and soft mounted harddisks, even with room for a slim DVD drive! The SPCR forums are a bit ancient, so for pictures go here: http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/393 ... ming-case/ And the video:

Some more notes about the noise:
- The 140mm Be Quiet fans vibrate quite a bit, was not impressed, but soft mounted its no longer a real issue
- The 120mm Be Quiet fans are much smoother and more stable.
- SpeedFan allows fan curves now, but the old 'warning' temperatures still have to be set high, they override the fan curves!

I'm pretty happy about it! :-)
Niels

Nice build!

Though not aesthetically refined as some branded products, nonetheless it looks pleasant in your video, and it's very practical indeed! :wink:

Perfect execution. I love stainless steel, except that other people love to leave fingerprints all over it. >:(

Careful using stainless bolts in stainless steel; it has a tendency to gall.
