Introducing the SpriteBox™ One

While other people are making beautiful PCs with 1080 Tis and RGB lights, I decided to build something a little bit different.

WHY?

It's been over 2 years since I have constructed my last sketchy masterpiece, so I decided it was time to give it another go. A friend of mine had the perfect materials to construct the ultimate PC just laying around: a bunch of old PC components, and a sprite box.

What's in it?

CPU: The Pentium 4 515 is a single core CPU for the LGA 775 socket. This CPU can barely handle a few firefox tabs before slowing the whole system down.

CPU Cooler: Somehow we didn't have a 775 compatible cooler laying around, so we had to improvise. Our expert mounting solution includes taking a bunch of small zipties, attaching them together, and then hot-gluing the ends to the bottom of the board.

Mobo: Although this is an LGA 775 board, it uses the dreadful 915 chipset. This limits our choice of CPUs to single core Pentium 4s and Celeron Ds.

GPU: The 7300 LE was a low end card back in 2006, but almost anything beats the pitiful onboard GMA 900 graphics.

RAM: The RAM is completely mismatched sticks of what we found laying around. It's not very much from a modern standpoint but it's perfectly fine for Windows XP.

Case: The case is without a doubt the greatest part of this system. It lived it's previous life as a 24 can box of Sprite, but after being abandoned by it's former owners and left for the trash we decided that it needed a second shot at life. This case is rocking full Micro-ATX compatibility, fan support, as well as a CLEAR SIDE PANEL (made of plastic wrap). These features are simply unbeatable for the price.

l hate it & I love it all at the same time, making it bizarrely brilliant.

All it needs now is a custom liquid cooling solution using plastic sprite bottles, some mcdonald size-me-up straws and a fish tank pump.

EDIT: OOPS! Not forgetting RGB leds

This is not the first time I seen a cardboard box used for a case. I believe I seen it once in Maximum Pc Magazine years ago when they had some kind of challenge. I would recommend not leaving it plugged in. And stand a fire watch a hour after turning it off and unplugging it. Good luck and happy building.

A Mountain Dew box is what it needs.
