an external box does slightly spoil the nature of sff, but if you make it just the size of say, a big hardback book then you've still got a setup that is a fraction the size of a midtower

given the money and time, as a hobby i'd like to do a phase cooling or fluorinert setup. stuff like prometeia is overpriced for what it is

advanced cooling for sff will evolve, shuttle giving us a half decent heat pipe format is the first step of that. i consider whats going on right now to be it's first stuttering steps on the way to being very practical. after all, it's only heat throughput that matters, not spare case volume
I've always wanted to try out a fluorinert or other submersive type system. I think if you play it right with heatpipes and positioning, you could take all the fans out of a system. Possibly even the pump for circulating the submersion.

With 400 GB going for $150 AR on BF, you could easily hit about 1.3TB on RAID5 for under a $1k total (drives, RAID, case, etc.). I get weak in the knees thinking about it.

BTW - good to see you figured out the internet again :tard:

Its the heart of my wild plan for the future of HTPC and other media appliances. Uncompressed DVD, entire alalbum collections, pictures, TV, home movies, all accessable from a single point anywhere in the house or anywhere in the world. Thin clients would drive media to displays and speakers around the house. Heck, you could even have several wireless picture panels to rotate through your photo collection. I've actually got all the know how and what parts/software to get to make it happen. Only problem is $$$.

I would get this exact same computer.
i.e.
amd 2600+
asus a7n8x-e mobo
1 gig pc 3200
pny ti4200 (64mb) version
74gig hd.
cd burner that does work
dvd rom

Thas' it. Runs everything I want perfectly fine. Screw fancy high end computers.
