Arrakis by Attila

Project Log: Here
Two-time Mod of the Year winner Attila has changed his working style this month by starting a new project alongside his current and eminently world-class project, Cor Leonis. Arrakis is a small project, but it nonetheless shows more of the same epic build quality we expect from Attila's scratch-builds.

A passively-cooled Asus mini-ITX motherboard sits at the heart of the PC, which itself will eventually find a home next to Attila's TV. The tools behind Attila's precision are on show from the outset, with a digital calliper on hand to make sure everything is built to exact measurements.

Above on the left we get a sense of the difference in size between Attila's new water-cooled project and Arrakis - the latter really is tiny. The case is quickly coming together, and we hope Attila manages to show off that fabulous-looking motherboard.

There's clearly plenty still to come with this project, so don't miss any of the updates in Attila's log. Head over to our forum if you'd like to vote for Arrakis.
