I want to build a Lan Box!

This is one website I found. Also, Newegg has many boxes to choose from.



What's cool about a LanBox to me is not really the mobility factor. It's the fact that you get away from so much crap this is unecessary in your computer. Which would also reduce power consumption. I sort of want to build a budget LanBox. Waiting for 6 series Nvidia cards and Ivy Bridge Intel stuffs.

I want the following to be in there:

Case: Lan Box sized
Motherboard: Micro ATX
Graphics: EVGA Nvidia GTX 6??
Processor: Ivy Bridge Processor
Memory: 6gb to 8gb
Hard Drive: 2 x OCZ 250gb Solid State Drives
Power Supply: 700w to 1000w
Featurs: USB 3.0, Thunderbolt, Firewire

Sweet box. It''s like a desktop on a weightloss diet. I'd take one and run a minecraft server on it.

Turn on ALL the graphic options!

It's done. No pics yet. I'll post them in the Rig thread. I want to ask some asisstance for someone to help dremel holes in the top and sides for extra fans. It would be cool.

Don't have a dremel tool, although I've been wanting to get one for awhile now....

Also: your post needs sauce.

I'll post some pics. Temps on the GPU are too high so I reinstalled Nvidia drivers now EVGA Precision Tool downclocks them properly. 50mhz when not in use, temps are REALLY low. When 3D app loads like a game it reverts to stock clocks as I do not overclock my GPUs.
