    Smile TorrentBox [miniPC]

    Building TorrentBox...

    It's the smallest PC I have ever built, it's based on Thermaltake SD100 mini case.

    Quick specs:
    Intel Core I7-2600
    Scythe Kozuti CPU cooler
    Intel H67 Mobo (Mini-ITX)
    Zalman ZM-NB32K North Bridge cooler
    8 GB RAM (Corsair Vengeance LP)
    600 GB HDD (WD VelociRaptor, 10000rpm)
    SeaSonic 250W PSU
    Thermaltake SD100 case
    NoiseBlocker 60mm fan (XR2)

    In a few days I'll upload the video to YouTube...

    Some pics of toy assembled. Looks sweet. Taking into account overall performance of Llano and upcoming Trinity APUs - such ITX PC can be all the regular user need - Internet, Movies and Gaming. As to Gaming, Llano has much superior performance than Core i7 (presented in this build), Trinity (A10 APU) will have Radeon HD 7000 series GPU inside, looks extremely promising. Anyway, as to CPU power Intel is superior. So, what I've got with i7-2600 is high performance system, but with no gaming at all (well, Quake 2 runs here, but even 3D Mark Vantage runs at 1-3 fps - on Llano alone I was able to play Battlefield Bad Company 2). Also, such miniPC is very good alternative to XBOX, PS3 and such.
