    The NVIDIA Cube PC





    Those of you won didn't know of the contest, the public submitted their ideas for an Nvidia ION based PC back in August. If their design idea was chosen, they could watch their design become reality by one of 5, professional modders. If that PC design won, the designer took ownership of the PC. The winning PC was ours!

    Now I have to figure out how I'm going to ship this to cheaps?!, (I blame it on Cheaps!)

    It was a pleasure participating in this competition with Boddaker, Dennis, and TiToN. I hope we can do another Nvidia contest like this again, but with triple-SLI rigs

    Spider-like fan blades shroud the top 120mm Logysis intake fan.



    The NVIDIA logo on the base is laser cut from 1/4" thick UV Green transparent cast acrylic.

    MAD! What happened to the other 4 PCs though - if I read it right 5 were built but only the winner got to take theirs home?
