Overview of the interior with the motherboard to the left and the PSU to the right under a CF card.

In 2008 I installed a video projector in my living room and wanted a new HTPC to deliver content of a higher quality. Since I could not find a commercial chassis that was small enough (yet housed a MicroATX motherboard) to fit on the shelf I had arranged by the projector I set off to build my own.

I chose to build it out of aluminum because it is easy to work with and to keep the weight down. The PSU is of a nonstandard form factor to keep the size down.
