Here is the original forum post that the guy posted. It doesn't show how to make it but it is cool to actually see the inside. By the way it was done in 2010 shown by the post date, cool stuff though.

Why would you want this? There's no way you could fit a real video card in there...
User avatar #8 to #6 - Nameloc (12/09/2013) [-]
Even still, you can get an APU and a medium-lower graphics card and have them crossfire to get a decent setup.
User avatar #11 to #6 - dafiltafish (12/09/2013) [-]
Media center with an AMD a6 would work nicely in a computer like that.
User avatar #113 to #6 - giannis (12/09/2013) [-]
APU
User avatar #124 to #6 - durkadurka ONLINE (12/09/2013) [-]
Typically you use an HTPC as a media center. Now if this thing is going to be chilling in your living room, it has to be small, and it has to look neat and clean. There aren't many cases out there if you want to build your own, so builders have to get creative.

#12 to #7 - jaked ONLINE (12/09/2013) [-]
Well you can understand why he would think that, what with it being in the case of a games console.
User avatar #14 to #12 - billybong (12/09/2013) [-]
Sure, I get your point. But it's a N64 console chassis. If he wants the latest graphics, he either wants a console or a proper desktop (All of which are at least double the N64's size at a minimum).

Hell if I had a computer that small, inside a N64 chassis, I'd be happy if I could get it to browse the net and emulate n64 games, stoked if it played HD MKV's and cheering if I could even get an older game like HL2 working at a nice FPS with what I'd presume to be either an ALU or Intel Integerated GPU.

I know it's not you who made the comment, but it's like comparing the torque of a heavy rigid truck to a city car and then coming to the conclusion that the city car is useless and everyone should be driving 18 wheelers.

TLR pocketstooheavy's stupid burns my skin
#15 to #14 - jaked ONLINE (12/09/2013) [-]
Yeah, I definitely agree with you, it's impressive that he was even able to fit the heatsink fan in there and still have room for everything else. Everything has a place, like you aren't going to expect an ultrabook to be able to game, and you aren't going to lug a desktop around with you, this case mod falls squarely into the media center category.
User avatar #16 to #15 - billybong (12/09/2013) [-]
It must be a super low profile heatsink to fit in there, maybe even a passive one with those air vents.

Looking at this casemod makes me want to do something similar using a Raspberry Pi... Now I just need a console that doesn't work anymore...
User avatar #57 to #14 - hellsjester (12/09/2013) [-]
he could always hollow out a old nintendo entertainment system and put a fan in with it then make it look like they were stacked on top of each other
User avatar #46 to #7 - JariWeis ONLINE (12/09/2013) [-]
This one should be, considering it's inside the case of a GAMING console.
User avatar #47 to #46 - billybong (12/09/2013) [-]
Well generally gaming means high end recent games. That's never going to happen in this case. It's too small and there would be too much heat created if there was a discrete GPU in there.

But I'm sure it'll do N64 emulation fine.... and that'd be enough gaming on that box for me.
User avatar #48 to #47 - JariWeis ONLINE (12/09/2013) [-]
Maybe, he could use an "upscaled" version and fit an APU (A10 6800k) with a small CPU fan in there ;)
User avatar #49 to #48 - billybong (12/09/2013) [-]
APU =/= High end gaming

But yeah you should be able to run a couple more things provided it doesn't create too much extra heat
User avatar #52 to #49 - JariWeis ONLINE (12/09/2013) [-]
If you're going with such a case, you're not going for high end gaming.
Also; there's plenty of people that don't care for high end, they just want to be able to play the games casually.
User avatar #53 to #52 - billybong (12/09/2013) [-]
Sure, I'm with you there about low end computing. I love taking old "useless" computers and re-purposing them

It could also make an awesome steambox. Streaming from a Windows desktop over the network to this mini computer connected to your TV
#44 to #7 - drdoalot (12/09/2013) [-]
Although it's a reasonable assumption that someone who goes out of their way to build their PC inside a case for a N64 probably plays games from time to time...
User avatar #45 to #44 - billybong (12/09/2013) [-]
Sure, but those games on that computer won't include recent high end games

It will be emulation, and other old games, limited only by GPU.
User avatar #21 to #7 - anbieter (12/09/2013) [-]
But it could be used as an n64 emulator
User avatar #22 to #21 - billybong (12/09/2013) [-]
Sure, see comment #14

Any x86/x64 computer sold nowdays can emulate n64 games. Hell most smarphones released within the last year or two can do it fine too. They've even got Mupen64 working very well on Raspberry Pi's. I'd be more concerned if the computer in the content, couldn't emulate N64 games
#86 to #7 - whenuleastxpect (12/09/2013) [-]
But why would you buy a gaming-related case if you are not going to play video games? That doesn't make any sense.

Ill bite, N64, As you should know, Came about just before the console war started and people were still experimenting with game systems and new game types and tech.

I myself have a modded ps1 case not made for gaming, Its made for watching blue rays on my living room television.

For gaming i have my HAFX Case set up in my room. The reason i made it using a ps1 case is because i liked the look of the ps1 case and i modded the **** out of it with bling lights and such.

I would think probably because he enjoyed the way the N64 case looked and just had no more use for it for actual gaming purpose.
User avatar #36 to #7 - mussyo (12/09/2013) [-]
Then what use is it!
User avatar #37 to #36 - billybong (12/09/2013) [-]
Fapping, Emulating games, fapping, web browsing, fapping, HD video decoding, fapping, jukebox, fapping, PVR.

Did I mention you can use it for fapping?
User avatar #38 to #37 - mussyo (12/09/2013) [-]
it was a joke... but it is for gaming, the n64 casing implied it i think but it could just be a cool case i suppose.
User avatar #40 to #38 - billybong (12/09/2013) [-]
I thought it was (wasn't sure) so I tried to give some funny back

I think I'd use it for fapping

Well yeah, but you'd think in a gaming console case you'd want to put some sick hardware in there.
User avatar #50 to #41 - billybong (12/09/2013) [-]
The thing about sick hardware, is that it generates sick amounts of heat which in turn requires a sick cooling system, and that's in a regular chassis. Now you're talking about doing the same thing in a case 1/5th of the size of your average ATX while generating the same amount of heat. Looking forward to seeing your CAD designs.

You can buy N64 controllers that plug into computers.

You could just use a pcie extension cable, and have it outside of the case or put it sideways to fit in the console
User avatar #98 to #66 - decapitation (12/09/2013) [-]
or.. or.. somehow attach the graphics card into where you would slot a game in, so you could like, change graphics cards like you would games!!

cool huh!! no? no??
#39 to #32 - Spikeydeath (12/09/2013) [-]
well now i will look this up for you

the 770 is 10.7 inches long, lets round it up to 11 inches. and the n64 is 10.34 inches long... so no What you could do... is instead of an n64 use an atari 2600 which is 13 inches long

Its probably a mini ITX board. Obviously this wouldn't be for any high power computing or gaming (beyond like a SNES emulator) but its still a near little design for an internet machine.

There is no GPU, and it could be a Mini ITX board with laptop SODIMM. I'm guessing it's an FM2 Socket, which supports AMD APU, which is a CPU and GPU in the same chip.
