[No 56k] mITX Miner's Build - New Pics!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So the idea behind this was to have a PC that can easily be moved, as I work at a gold mine and do 14-day in/out shifts. I don't need a monitor, as they provide us with our own 19" LCD TV's, with HDMI.

I decided for this, instead of a laptop, for a few reasons. Mostly because this is faster and costs less, but also this can be as easily upgraded as a full-sized desktop. It has the Z68 chipset, 8+2 power phasing annd can fit a full-sized video card (I KNOW RIGHT?).

Right now, the parts pretty much make it a HTPC.
But when I upgrade my main PC for Bulldozer/Ivy Bridge (if BD isn't that impressive, then I'll wait), I'll pop my 2500k in, along with my Hyper 212+ (I have a XSPC Rasa kit sitting around anyway), and maybe even my GTX560 Ti.

But I digress.. Here's the CPU-Z Validation.

Intel Core i3-2100 | Zotac Z68ITX-A-E | Silverstone Sugo SG07B | GeForce 9800GT (Not pictured) | 4GB G.Skill ECO 1600MHz | 500GB WD Caviar Black | 600w Silverstone PSU

I find that 180mm Air Penetrator fan funny - its bigger than the mobo lol

Complete, just chilling in the corner. It has built in wi-fi and I've been installing stuff on it via Teamviewer.

View from the top with the fan removed.

View from video card side.. I took the shroud off, because it cooled better in the case I had before. idk where it is now.

p8250034.jpg
Poor attempt at comparing the case fan and motherboard sizes.

p8250036.jpg
Peak into the other side, with that 180mm case fan installed.. I can fit a Hyper 212+, right? lol

p8250039.jpg
Really, the only spot to bunch and tie cables is right here.

Its a little small, but its behind is pretty nice, eh?
