Description

Home Theater PC In a Whiskey Tin I made a while ago. So I thought this would be a good place to share it.

Notes: Do not use a processor with such high TDP requirements. Cooling it is a pain and you can see the hundreds of holes I had to drill in the case to properly cool it. However, in 2012~ and there wasn't a whole lot of lower TDP CPU's that we see today.

Specs:

Processor: AMD A10-5800K Ram: 8gb DDR3 HD: SSD 256gb MOBO: GIGABYTE GA-A75N-USB3 PSU: FSP FSP220-60LE 200W Tin Whiskey Box: $15 Off E-Bay

Take Aways: Use very low TDP CPU's or you will spend a lot of time on cooling Be sure to ground properly & secure it to the case

From the last image I feel that the only downside is that it is hidden behind the TV :( +1 regardless

We get a cardboard box PC, and then a tin can one directly after. I'm not sure what's happening, but I like it. Anyway, it looks very cool, good idea.
