the Mini

this one I built with 2 things in mind: how do i fit as many standard PC items into as small a space as possible, and how do I go about building my wife a PC just for her?
I found and used anything based on M-ITX sizing. again like my last build, custom looping seemed to be the best way to go after a while. I decided to use flex tubing on this build because of the cramped, unforgiving spaces. Also I was trying out a new design for a radiator based on wrapping smaller tubing around several fans in series. Theoretically it was great but the execution needed more work. Not to mention given the confined spaces I couldn't sacrifice airflow as badly as my design did.
My wife wanted some color to the case so I got the Portal in white. We took some construction paper and spray paint and she handled the rest.
