    Ok so i bought a tinypc kit off one of our fellow ocau members, He said he didnt have a case for it but i assumed somehow i could just mount it into any old pc case. Out of 5 cases it wouldnt fit in any off them. So i gave up and just had it running on my desk. Now im pretty careless when it comes to drink on my desk so i was worried id spill something on the pc and kill it. So i came up with this idea :D


    Here is pc kit i got

    Here is how i was running it.

    [​IMG]

    The pc fully mounted into the right hand side desk draw from my desk

    [​IMG]

    The draw with pc in it back in the desk

    Pc running

    What the desk looks like with the pc in the draw rather then a big mess ontop

    That is cool... A PC in a drawer. Got anymore plans for it. Just think upgrades/hardware changes, just open the draw :weirdo:

    you should make metal brackets for the motherboard so that the components are fixed, and yeh get a drill and a holesaw, cut a few holes out, then get some self-taper screws and drill straight into the wood. :thumbup:

    It should be intake at the front/bottom and exhaust at the back/top since the hot air rises.

    It's good enough now though.

    Had a good laugh. One question though, where did you put the optical drive?
