Slim Table Case Build

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Bought this white table at Ikea for $150 looked perfect for APU system with out any big video cards taking up the height. Im planning to wrap this whole table in Carbon Fiber Vinyl. For now deciding what i can do with the limited height... ideas welcomed.

You could get a PCI-E riser cable and lay a card flat, but this would require a lot of modification for airflow. More fans, more noise, more performance. I would recommend a PicoPSU if you are using a system without a video card and little to no overclocking. They have different models at different prices depending on your power draw. In my experience, these things use less energy than trying to use an over powered ATX PSU for low power PC's. I have had one for years and I have been using that kit since January everyday on my HTPC. Low power, low noise, performance that is acceptable to me. Given the large space and openings , I would imagine a low power CPU (below ~20 watts) would work fine without any fans at all. It wouldn't be a high end gaming rig, but it wouldn't cost as much either. Simple web surfing, movies, low end gaming, possibly even streaming games from a larger rig on Steam, small server or box to test out Linux distros would all be possible.

Custom water cooling loop with a giant radiator or two and UV LEDs would be pretty epic though.

I have the PCI-E Riser but thought it might not look good... regular power supply fits with out an issue. Ive never done custom loop and always wanted to.

Thank you for the advise!
