Terrible fan/cooling design... hamster wheel fans are only good in theory. In reality they are so prone to get dust stuck in the tiny gap in the fins that they always end up being much louder than normal fans to provide the same cooling. Also they have metal brackets in the path of the airflow from the fans ... and in this case the fans use recycled warm air because they didn't bother putting air intakes in the box...

 

Just going by the pictures though. Obviously they were trying to turn a 1U case into a TV mount, but that is the worst cooling design I've ever seen in a computer case. Even Apple's crappy cooling in their one-piece laptops is better designed.

That's what I was fearing... I was left wondering how much space would be left for the CPU cooler on the upper left side of the first pic.

Since they are not officially done, there may be some last minute tweaks. OR, they don't care/wanted to try something diffrent.

I've never seen a company advertise how "hackable" there computer is. (Second pic).

looks way to thin for full sized graphic cards etc. My first impression is it is a laptop without the built in screen or keyboard.

The ouya tried to cash in on hackability... but see where it took them :(

 

But yeah, I'd love to see what graphic cards they can fit in there.

I think this looks a bit gimmicky TBH, like a steam machine you get to hide the fact you own, What's the point?

It's an interesting Idea, especially for people that REALLY don't have any room.

But I really am doubting that cooling system...
