No this is no stylish premodded case, nor is it aluminum/steal. It's a shoebox, yeah you saw correctly. Cardboard is the most durable material for a case (I guess…), and also it does NOT conduct static electricity. Though, it is not very sturdy it is fairly strong. So how did I come to think of using a shoe box? Basically I glanced to my closet, saw an old shoe box, and thought; "It'd be cool, to have a computer in a shoe box." (Well, it was something like that.) I already had an old HP computer, which was a Small ATX system. Immediately I knew it would be perfect. So I took the computer apart, and inserted the hardware piece by piece into the box. After minutes the computer began to form before my eyes… I used motherboard standoffs because I thought it'd give that motherboard tray look to it. The hardest part about everything was trying to get the screw things in like the PSU and HDD. The cardboard was extremely easy to cut with a beveled pocket knife. I couldn't manage to get a CD-Rom in the box. Maybe another box branching off, to house the Rom would be good… Heat was a factor here, because we know paper is flammable, and cardboard is paper basically. When I close the box, the thing gets very hot, but when open t gets good air circulation. The machine is very portable and great for LAN parties. I can see the guys now, "Hey, what are you doing with a shoe box man, where your case?!" Then, I bust unleash the power of K-Swiss and Intel, and cause complete havoc while I own newbies left and right.
