Secate se vremena kada su kucni racunari bili na stolu u jednome?
Slicno Amiga 500 stilzovano kuciste se pojavilo na Kickstareru i ja sam vec podrzavalac.
Staje miniITX ploca i low profile PCI EXpress graficka kartica.
Zaista divno i stilizovano A500 kuciste koje vredi podrzati.
Ako nemate barem 200 funti za kupovinu sada, postoji opcija da se za 100 funti rezervise naknadna kupovina u junu.
The X500 Plus is a computer case I designed as a tribute to the computers of the '80s and '90s and it’s overall inspired by the Commodore Amiga 500. It’s a wedge styled computer case with inbuilt, full size keyboard.
The X500 Plus has a retro feeling but with modern, clean lines and lots of internal space. It’s made of aluminium, plastic and steel and it’s designed for modern computer hardware.
The X500 Plus allows you to build your own modern, powerful computer, with your choice of components and Operating System like Windows, Linux, AmigaOS, AROS, MOS etc…you can use it for your mini-itx x86 motherboards, PowerPC boards such as the SAM motherboards by ACube, the Natami and the upcoming FPGAArcade Replay board, basically any board which is mini-itx or flex-atx format with low profile heat sinks (overall internal height is 52mm).
The combination of a PowerPC board (ACube’s SAM) and AmigaOS4.1 (the most recent version of the Amiga Operating System by Hyperion Entertainment), the free AROS (Research Operating System) running on a supported x86 board or MorphOS running on supported hardware inside the X500 Plus are ideal for the full, original experience of Amiga inside a retro looking case.

What is not included:
Power supply - the case has been designed for a picoPSU, they come in 80-90-120-150-160W, plenty to power up the machine in the video (intel i3 dual core 2.5GHz, Ati Radeon 6570 2GB, two 2.5" HD drives…), they have 20 or 24 pins and some might be slightly higher than others so please check before buying.
picoPSUs are widely available: www.mini-itx.com www.linitx.com www.kustompcs.com

12V, 120 Watt DC-DC ATX power supply

A 120 watt ATX power supply? Surely you jest. How can a 120 watt power supply hold its own in a world where there are power supplies that put out nearly ten times that amount of power?
Here’s the secret: High powered systems may be as popular as ever, but the industry’s growing interest in performance-per-watt has people thinking about power efficiency. Besides, just because a system is powerful doesn’t mean it has to be power-hungry. We’ve known for ages that even powerful systems rarely draw more than 200 watts, and the proliferation of low power, high performancce Athlon 64 chips and even lower power Pentium M, Core Duo, and Turion 64 chips have made it easier than ever to build a system that peaks below 100 watts.
For a modest system, a 120W power supply like the picoPSU is an elegant alternative to a conventional power supply. What makes the picoPSU different from any other power supply? A wise man once said “A picture is worth a thousand words”. Let’s take his advice:
[center] Where’s the rest?[/center]
No, that’s not just one of the cables. That’s the whole darn thing. As its name suggests, the picoPSU is tiny — so tiny that 70 picoPSUs would fit inside the casing of a normal ATX power supply. The advantages of the picoPSU over a conventional power supply is obvious:[list]
It will fit in just about any case — even the smallest Small Form Factor systems with proprietary power supplies
It’s fanless, which means no noise
[*]Cable clutter is minimal
The picoPSU is so simple that it’s amazing that someone hasn’t done this before. Strictly speaking, that’s not quite true, someone has done this before, but that someone is the same company. A year ago, Mini-box introduced a product called the PW-200M, which is more or less the same thing in a bulkier package and still available. Compared to its predecessor, the picoPSU is much smaller. Because its footprint is no bigger than the ATX connector itself, it’s difficult to imagine any motherboard or system that the picoPSU would not fit into.
The secret to the picoPSU is that it’s really only half a power supply. The bulkiest part of the power conversion, 120V or 240VAC to 12VDC, is taken care of by an external power brick which feeds the picoPSU. Because most of the power required by a modern computer is in 12V form, all the picoPSU has to do is pass most of the power straight through, taking only what it needs to power the +5V and +3.3V lines. And, as we noted in our article on power distribution, the total power requirements on these two lines is rarely more than 20~30 watts.
It’s hard not to be delighted with the picoPSU. It’s quiet (fanless, in fact), efficient, small, cool… the list goes on. Although it is targeted at systems using VIA’s embedded EPIA technology, it can easily be used in a desktop system with a low-powered Athlon 64, to say nothing of a laptop processor such as a Core Duo or a Turion 64.
Its only real disadvantage is its size: 120W isn’t quite enough for a system with a decent (read: power-hungry) graphics card. Its limited cable length and connectors may also cause difficulties. But these are small gripes about what is otherwise an excellent power supply.
With the right power brick, the picoPSU has proved itself to be the most efficient power supply that you can buy right now. This isn’t just a couple of percent at a power level that your system will never even reach. The benefits of the efficiency were seen in an actual system against a known good contender. The net decrease in power draw of 20% at idle is amazing considering that the load did not change.
Of course, with the right power brick is a key part of the efficiency results. +12V power bricks that can output 120W capacity are hard to come by, and their efficiency is virtually unknown. Until (and if) detailed information about other models on the market can be found, it’s probably safest to stick with the EDac bricks that we tested. Unfortunately, the 120W brick has its own drawback: The cooling fan that comes on at 90W load. Hopefully, there are other 12VDC power bricks of this capacity that don’t have a cooling fan.
Andrei Bulucea, the creator of the picoPSU, says that sales are about evenly split between companies and individual end users. The companies that buy the picoATX use it for specialized commercial and industrial applications where miniaturization and low power consumption are absolutely critical — digital display signs, PoS systems, digital video & sSecurity, and so on. Individual end users are generally hobbyists (like many SPCR forum readers) who use the picoPSU for special projects such as tiny mini-ITX PCs. We think it could quickly become a SPCR modder’s weapon of choice.
All in all, the picoPSU is inventive, practical, and even affordable. (Why do those things so rarely go together?) In time, we hope to see many similar products — or perhaps an industry-wide shift to using single-rail power supplies.
Dosta je jak hardver predviđen za to malo kućište, i napajanje je slabo. Nešto mi tu i nije baš proračunato. Takvi računari bi trebalo da budu brendirani, sa unapred testiranim i ugrađenim komponentama, bar je za takav koncept dekstopa ovo kućište.
Slazem se sa navedenim rizicima - bolje bi bilo da postoji lista testiranog hardvera. Indirektno ona postoji na onome sto je tvorac testirao a picoPSU je inace dovoljan za namenske green FlexATX i MiniITX ploce, graficku karticu niskog profila, do dva SSD-a i DVD. Videcemo, ako KIckstarter uspe i dobijem isto, bice to moderski poduhvat.
