The "Playstation2 PC"
Jason Lawson managed to cram most of his EPIA
800 (bar a few stragglers) into a Playstation 2 case.
The cunning fox didn't dismember a working model though, he
found an unwanted case on the global bric-a-brac and occasional
internal organ sales site, ebay. There - it looks like we've
got most of the consoles covered now...

Here is the original case that I got on ebay
There was a thin layer of metal inside the
PS2 case, I suppose for cooling or whatnot, but I removed
it because I had a lot of cutting to do, and I was worried
about shorting the motherboard out.
Here's a picture of how I would weigh things
down when I was glueing them onto the inside of the case.
This is a plastic riser that I cut off the case before-hand,
and now I'm re-affixing it to the case to be used as a support
for the motherboard.
Things went along pretty quickly after that.
Here is the motherboard sitting in the case. The hard drive
is located below the mobo on the left, and the DVD drive is
located on the right.
