The 'EPIA Alloy Mod'

Micke Gustafsson is clearly nuts about case modding, with many a be-spoke creation under his belt. VIA started things rolling when they let him have an EPIA SP 13000 going spare. Before he began, he needed direction. A chance trip to a local tyre store inflated his ideas. An alloy wheel was acquired, and his home quickly became a hub of activity. But the first version wasn't well balanced enough, and he was under pressure to deliver a mod of a higher calliper. There was a brake for a redesign. A disc-ussion with Geoff over at Bit-Tech helped steer Micke in the right direction. And a wheely small picoPSU courtesy of ourselves helped lower the profile of his creation. The result was a unique Alloy Wheel PC, running a Mini-ITX at 1.3GHz.
