The Stealth American is the world's smallest full featured computer while maintaining a full liquid cooling system.
Case -> Silverstone Sugo 05 (Smallest full GPU case on the market)
Challenge -> The purpose of this case mod was the create a PC that had the entire functions of a full tower case. This required both 2.5 and 3.5 hard drives, a full sized GPU with a PSU to power it, adequate cooling for the CPU and GPU, while still maintaining sufficent airflow for the radiators. All the above was to be fitted into the smallest commercially available case with 2 PCI slots. (as of newegg june 2011). At 658.3 cubic inches or .38cubic feet, it is smaller than most stereo speakers, and is about the size of a gallon of milk or a 12-pack soda (or beer, whatever floats your boat).
Parts list is as follows
ASRock Itx Motherboard HT
Full GPU (undecided, working with a 560ti)
2x 3.5 hard drives.
up to 4x SSDs
Full ATX Silverstone 600W PSU
HWLabs 120 GTStealth
Swiftech Apogee XT waterblock
Swiftech 355 pump
Swiftech 355x top
either 1x Feser triebwerk or 2x any other 120mm fans in push pull.
intergated 5.25 fan controller
Bitspower of course
I hope I got everything
All while leaving space for a slim dvd/blu drive and a Silverstone OEM card reader.
Full featured means
Push pull for rad
2SSDs in RAID
at least 1 3.5 for storage.
Disk drive and card reader
Full sized GPU

I could use a better name so suggestions are welcome.
Comparison to 'Mini-me'
To clarify because some people are wondering
and as I said, this is a full computer, in the smallest space possible.
And for the record I think that oliverw92's work is incredible, and I wouldnt have even thought of this if I didnt see Mini-me. I went as far as to copy the entire photos directory after the links broke on his forum posts.
