Tiny Gaming Rig

My latest project The Tiny Game machine is nearly complete. This bit of fun has been it the works for what seems like an age.

This great little game machine is built on a zotac mini-itx platform

  • LGA 775 GF9300
  • Intel Q8200; 4Gb RAM
  • OCZ Vertex 60Gb
  • Enermax Liberty DXX ELT500AWT 500w PSU
  • and the big one: Palit GeForce GTX 460 Sonic 1024MB

All of this crammed into a tiny Lian-Li PC-Q07 box.

First try at the on button: the GPU was up to 80c in minutes (quite expected). Next pulled off the side and flipped the case upside down. This brought the running temp down to 73c under load. finally i added 4x 4cm fans for intake and one blower at the top for exhaust and this brings the temp down to 61c under the same load.
