Deepcool have come out with a couple of wacky cases in the past, (Steam Castle, anyone?). The Dukase, however, is a more traditional case aimed at the entry level market. It’s got a removable top panel as well as a front door, which are nice to have at an entry level. The Dukase boasts some other features typically reserved for more expensive cases as well, including SSD trays, removable 5.25″ bays and a PSU shroud. Check out the Full Review Here!

Hanging in the Balance Hanging in the Balance was my entry into the 2014 Intel NUC case design competition. The design was inspired by a balancing clock that I've seen several woodworking friends make before. The main NUC case hangs from a cantilevered arm extending up from a base. The case is built from scratch by hand and by eye, using solid wood for the arms and base, and plywood with veneer for the main case itself. It has been done largely by hand tool work in traditional methods, and no fancy machinery. There were a few tweaks to the design as submitted, due to changes in the competition requirements post-submission. The case comes apart into 3 pieces for shipping, which required a little rework. That wasn’t mentioned in the original contest requirements, but once it was added I became weary of my design being shipped in one piece (let alone arriving that way :lol:). The Design: The Kit:
Mini Watercooled HTPC It should come as no surprise at this point that I love building small wooden HTPCs; or just adding wooden elements to my case mods, for that matter. When AMD released their 25w socket AM1 CPU’s a few months ago, I thought it would be the perfect platform for building a new low power HTPC. I picked up a motherboard and CPU combo, and went to work. This, however, is where things started to evolve… Once I got the hardware, and found the stock fan, something had to change. I’m sure the stock fan does fine, but I wanted something else. I thought about modding an existing CPU fan to work with the 2-mounting hole configuration, but I quickly came to the conclusion of "Watercool it, because why not". It’s true, I’ve wanted to use one of those 2x80mm radiators for a slim watercooled build for a while, so I thought what better opportunity than now to make that happen. Overkill? Not at all… mostly :D
