FS: **MicroITX Chest PC**

Well I built this little computer to be used in my living room. Its a ultra small form factor ITX motherboard in a decorative chest, so it would blend in well in my living room. I haven't used it and it's just sitting around so it should find a good home.


Specs:
VIA EPIA700 Motherboard
1Gb DDR RAM
80Gb Seagate HDD
Built In Audio/Video (VGA only)
10/100 NIC
2 USB Ports
Kubuntu OS

Running Kubuntu

I am asking $130 shipped.



Shoot me a PM if you have any questions.


I can include an optical drive for you to use for install of OS's if need be. This is an excellent little PC for holding your MP3 collection and connecting other PC's on your network.

Re: MicroITX Chest PC

LOL great idea for a custom case. Hows it do on heating? Im guessing you had to drill a vent...

Re: MicroITX Chest PC

The VIA EPIA Series puts out almost no heat, so its great for small enclosures like this. The Power supply is vented out the back so it keeps it fairly cool.


btw $125 is a steal since the board itself I believe still retails at like $100, and you get 1gb of RAM and the 80gb hard drive with it, not to mention the stylish chest.


Alone the MB would be good with a solid state drive for a CarPC.

Re: FS: **MicroITX Chest PC**

Nice, I hadnt looked into the hardware list too much, got distracted by the kickass case

This really is a great deal guys. 125 really is a great price for such a custom PC.
You could probably even convert it over to a server fairly easily if you really wanted to.


GL with the sale
