Nice! Now all of those nice ITX motherboards need to get to the market and I would consider one.

Is that vortex fan hype? I understand why a focused cylinder of air is beneficial for some applications, but not when the case is 8" deep. For short-range applications, could that spiral bezel create more resistance and thus more noise?

The H55 mini-ITX motherboard that they've got in the demo (Zotac H55-ITX) looks pretty good. Newegg's also got a P55 mini-ITX motherboard from DFI.

I think it depends on the speed of the fan.

The good thing about a case this size is if you furnish it with a GTX 480, it'll cook a Cornish game hen in about 35 minutes.

Wow, impressive :)

There's at least 3 good reasons to buy this compared to a shuttle for your small PC:
- It's cheaper to buy
- Comes with powerful PSU
- Supports full size graphics cards

I have slight reservations about putting a GFX card like the HD 5970 in there - Would it not get a little stuffy? Maybe the side of the case that the GFX card is placed up against has some air vents on it. Can anyone see from the video if that were the case?

Thinking about making a cheap lan-box because I hate lugging around my real computer all the time. Maybe this case would be perfect :)
