>There's no hard drive or GPU!!!!!   
   
Look, not everything has to be a gaming PC. No one is going to be building a gaming PC off of a microATX board This is probably an HTPC build.   
   
See the wireless adapter in the last picture? The goal of an HTPC is to facilitate streaming and whatnot to your TV. We're not worrying about overheating because we're not trying to put the processor under a large load. Because we're not gaming we also don't need a discrete graphics card. The processor is definitely AMD, most likely an APU.    
   
This project is fine, it should do its job well. The only thing I'd have done differently would be to simply cut a round circle out for the ventilation and attached a metal grate .    
   
Also, the hard drive is under the motherboard you geniuses.

I like the idea, but if you had any idea what you were doing you'd know that you need more airflow than this for your computer. It's going to overheat after about 30 minutes. I would have installed another lateral output fan and an intake vent to help prevent this. By the way, where is your graphics card and hard drive? I don't see this working.
User avatar #172 to #149 - durkadurka (07/08/2013) [-]
You don't need a GPU. Not everything is a gaming PC. Besides, the processor on this build is AMD and my guess is that it's an APU.

The hard drive is under the motherboard. You can clearly see a SATA cable.

Assuming that this PC won't be under much strain, the overheating shouldn't cause problems.

I love the Xbox wireless sensor...

it will run for 30 minutes tops and then it overheats.
User avatar #143 to #142 - fyourahole (07/07/2013) [-]
You're right. I'll kill it with fire.

It's am emulator system, it doesn't need an HDD or a GPU. It runs all of my favorite emulated games from the CPU. It doesn't overhead because I underclocked the CPU, finally, it runs emulations from USB drives. This isn't a gaming rig, this is a project.

not trying to be a downer but it seems like thats way to small of a place to fit a whole computer with proper air flow and where is the graphics card? it cant be under the power supply needs to be there. if this is a functing computer it will surly lack the power to play most games effecently more like a office pc but still cool

It's a Micro ATX moard with graphics built INTO the board. It's not a powerful board but it can play todays games decently. as for airflow, He's drilled a vent into the top of the case and the into the sides.

Aww man, I can only buy from the canadian site, so much more expensive...
User avatar #122 to #116 - edgecution ONLINE (07/07/2013) [-]
Its obviously not meant to be a powerhouse. It's meant to be a novelty. Just because its small and low-power doesn't mean its not a fun looking internet machine.

Don't built in this case, it's extremely limited. Anything else, even open lay would be better than this case lol.

Yeah, like a Xbox dev kit.

Nothing wrong with your build, but no ram?
May I ask why you went for a 2011 socket build?
#156 to #155 - kompleteciller (07/08/2013) [-]
i have ram, a 8 gb vengance only one stick thoe still a work in progress and sorry if i should know this and i might make me sound like a super beta but i dont know what you mean by 2011 socket build? im not quite a exspert yet...
#159 to #156 - nomade (07/08/2013) [-]
Ahh, can't see the ram stick.
About the 2011 socket:
Do you know what CPU you have in there?
And if the PC is for gaming only, a 3770k /1155 socket) would be almost the same as a 3930k, which is 2011 socket and a lot more expensive. If you have a 3820 CPU, i think you should switch it out.
#162 to #161 - nomade (07/08/2013) [-]
To be a 6-core it is weak. A 3770k is cheaper and performs better comparing to price/performance ratio. But as you have a 3820 (or not?) it's not actually worth it to swap it.

liquid cooling just looks so ******* badass, if i ever get a system i'm going to go way overboard with the tubes and have pretty much every single part cooled, just to make it look cool...

#107 to #95 - someoneforamoment (07/07/2013) [-]
Or Nvidia Ion. There are a few Mobos out there with decent discrete.
User avatar #109 to #107 - maxair (07/07/2013) [-]
Isn't Ion worse the Intel HD 4000?
#110 to #109 - someoneforamoment (07/07/2013) [-]
I don't remember. It was paired to an Atom...
#111 to #110 - someoneforamoment (07/07/2013) [-]
But at this point I'm just waiting for the i7-4770R to release.
User avatar #112 to #111 - maxair (07/07/2013) [-]
That would mean Ion is worse then Intel HD 4000

What are the specs for the 4770R?
#114 to #112 - someoneforamoment (07/07/2013) [-]
It's an i7 with Intel Iris Pro graphics and 128MB of L3 cache. It's no GTX 790, but it should handle Crysis.
