    Sorry for the triple post, But I happened upon the ultimate rig to use to build a lan party box.

    You just need to ignore the price tag of about 1 and a half g's.

    Now if it only came with a chair.
    Someday I would like to become knowledgeable so that I could do penance for all the stupid questions I have and have yet to ask.

    What probably happened is I open one of my account go to the cp to get any new threads that are active and then erase TT cookies and open my other account.

    Ironically this thread slipped through, unnoticed until now.

    Going back to my dog idea, I wonder how much weight could a dog carry? I guess it would have to by a sff comp with an LCD screen. Guess you would prob. break your dog with a full tower and a 19+ inch screen. :laugh:

    Geodesic dome...hmmm got picts?

    And I started thinking...:grr:
    If you were gonna create a custom case, why wouldn't you go with a modified laydown style ? (think old PC's)
    Have the mobo flat down. The heavy HSF wouldn't be "hanging on" anymore. And heat could be pulled straight up - off the mobo / components. (since heat rises)
    What do you think ? Yes it would take up more desk space, but since we're talking about a custom case, wouldn't you want to show it off ?
    Tell me your thoughts...

    You could even have a combo. Half laydown - Half tower.
    Laydown section for mobo / components.
    Tower section for water cooling / refrigerator type cooling.

    Actually there are still a lot of lay down / desktop models around. The problem that they have that towers were created to deal with was the large amount of desk space that they take up while have limited space of accessories like multiple HD and CD drives.

    I don?t think there has yet been a good solution. There are SFF pc?s in all shapes. Tower desktop, Darth Vader?s helmet, but they all have a small amount of space of stuff.

    :thumb:
    If you want a *desktop* case go for it. But remember they usually end up taking more space then just a monitor would and if you put a monitor on top of it, that will interfere with vertical ventilation.

    Also, you're closer to the case and any noise it generates.

    :confused: My solution has been the 4th dimensional computer. The 4th dimension being time, I haven't built it yet, so I don?t have to figure out space or noise concerns yet, though I also don't get any of the benefits... yet.
    :(
