    Um, NO!


    There's a reason it's more expensive: BECAUSE IT'S FUCKING TINY.
    I think my mini-ITX is fucking tiny, but that thing is goddamn small.

    But they won't unlock its full potential until they put an LGA 1156 socket and ribbon-cable attached PCIe x16 slot :saddowns:

    I mean what's the worst that could happen?

    Photo frame? Speaker? Wallelt? Keyboard?
    There are too many possibilities. But a keyboard would be cool. Or photo frame. Or something else. Flower pot?

    I've always wanted to make a portable gaming desktop with monitor that fits inside a briefcase-like-case.



    Like that but bigger. Monitor fits in the top, then the rest of the computer on the bottom complete with keyboard and mouse.
    Sounds like it might work, but if you really wanted to save space you could use a projector for the monitor and a laser-projection keyboard for the input. Air flow wouldn't really work, so you'd need liquid cooling or that new Nvidia vapor-coolant

    Edited:

    Also a big pack of Lithium 18500s

    I was looking around for the cheapest VIA P820, but I found a daughterboard with and AGP and PCIe x1 expansion and pins for something else.

    Edited:

    Not going to buy it though, because the whole site was in russian

    The amp I have doesn't have a little cutout, it's just one big mesh grate, good cooling I guess.
    Yeah, it's cheap. The mesh is a plastic material, not metal, so it's stretched over a piece of plywood.

    Well can't find the russian one, but did find this:
    http://www.linuxfordevices.com/c/a/News/Via-EpiaP830/

    Edited:

    Optionally, Via provides a second carrier board that snaps onto the side of the Epia-P820, taking advantage of the device's available PCI Express expansion (2 x 1-lane). At the cost of increasing overall footprint by an unspecified amount, this add-on (below) delivers two Mini PCI Express expansion slots, "for a wealth of 3G and wireless connectivity options.)

    Oh. Bad reading. It's P830 not P820 :saddowns:

    Damn that's awesome. I think Zotac makes an ION card for mini pci-e. And a 3g card too. Shame I was early by a couple months. Also VX900 chipset :h:

    If you are going to get a pico-ITX, WAIT FOR THIS ONE

    Well sadly the estimated price is higher, and honestly, I'm not really going to be doing any hardware-demanding processes on my Pico, so I'm just going to get a p820.

    I guess if you put the hardware in the side or back, and put the screen in between the oven and the real door, you might get something useful out of it

    Review of the Ion PCI-E 1x.
    Pros: My Dell has had no issues or hiccups with this RAM. Same speed as OE RAM I displaced with this.

    Cons: None

    Other Thoughts: At first my PC went through the POST very very slowly for some reason with this RAM. However, I flashed to the latest BIOS rev for my Dell and now it blazes through POST super quick! Thanks Newegg!

    I saw an opened PSU the other day that someone had throw out, and I thought "my god, this would make a fairly interesting PC case, Mini-ITX or Pico-ITX, that is the question".

    Also serves as a good way to start a Xzibit joke. (You're going to need a PSU inside the PSU case after all )

    Pico-ITX, I think mini-ITX is bigger than the PSU itself. And if you use Pico, then you get an external power brick.

    Regarding the CPU side of things, the board gets the 1.2GHz U3300 member of the Nano E-series processor family Via announced earlier this year. Said to have idle power consumption of just 100mW, this 64-bit CPU provides virtualization capabilities and support for Intel's SSE4 instruction set extensions, according to Via.

    I'm actually interested in doing something with a MATX tower made of aluminum (for weight) and mounting a new very thin LED monitor on the side. I know these basically already exist as business PCs, but more like a LAN build.

    Yeah, I think they're called iMacs. Or any other all in one.

    Won't work. Need mobile-ITX, and I don't think that's available yet. You simply can't fit a pico-ITX board in there with all the cording you need for a true computer. I don't think the EPIA BIOS will let you USB boot, either, so you would need one of these since a Compact Flash module won't fit:

    Use a old 3.5" HDD as the case for a Pico-itx system.
    You'd probably need to CNC out any unnecessary crap from the inside of the gutted HDD though.
