My latest:

Image

I call it Ingraham after the Ingraham Cabinet Co. that made many wooden radio cases during the 30's and 40's. The specific inspiration is the Stromberg Carlson model 1110H radio with Ingraham case.


Image

American black walnut veneer over basswood and aircraft-grade plywood cladding the aluminum skin of a Silverstone LC06 mini-ITX case. Centerpiece is an Arlen Ness baby moon gas cap for a Harley Davidson motorcycle. It is chrome-plated billet aluminum.


Image

Evercool Fox-1 system blower controlled by a rheostat. Back panel is burl walnut.


Image

VIA VB8001 mainboard with 16x PCI-e slot. VIA Nano processor at 1.6GHz.


Image

4GB of Crucial DDR2 and a Crucial 64GB SSD mounted below the board. Large red blower support bracket to help protect it during shipping.

The Ingraham will debut to the public at CES in Jan in conjunction with VIA's Nano CPU hoopla.

Thanks for looking!

Evercool Fox-1 system blower :: How loud is this device? Is it doing a good job of keeping the contents of the enclosure cool?

Lovely case. I wish I was more "handy" that way.

Any comments about system performance?

What O/S are you running? I am planning to use Ubuntu Linux 8.10 when the board is finally available.

Thanks in advance.....Richard

It is fairly quiet for a blower. I put a rheostat in the circuit to slow it down. I have never had to run it higher than the lowest setting. It was fun to try a different solution while utilizing an unused PCI slot and not cutting a hole for a fan.

I haven't had it long enough to say anything about performance. Any suggestions of tests I could perform?

I'm running Ubuntu 8.10. I had to install it using the low-level VGA mode (can't remember what its called) but it runs and looks great without any add'l drivers or software installed. The loading screens didn't look any different than usual after selecting "lower VGA" so I don't know what that was all about.

Thanks for asking.

I made some computer speakers from the leftover materials from Ingraham. Tossed in a little mahogany and brass inlay for good measure.

Something like that but the size of a regular case as opposed to being modeled after a radio is exactly the kind of thing I want.
