Intel Ice

By jj_sky5000

When we first took a look at jj_sky5000's project log back in June, we weren't entirely sure what to expect. There was a SFF PC, plenty of aluminium foil and clear casting resin. The key of course was in the name but we had no idea just how great it would end up looking.

In an intriguing method using aluminium foil and casting resin, jj_sky5000 proceeded to make the shell of his small PC. A few days later we got some idea of what he was up to.

The layout is important too though and with the 3.5in hard disk in place on the clear acylic motherboard tray, you get an idea of just how small the PC is. The mini-ITX motherboard is mounted on top of this in a two-tier design to keep the size of the case to a minimum.

Here we got our first glimpses of what a brilliant method of creating an ice effect jj_sky5000 has come across. Illuminated from beneath, it literally looks like it's just been chiselled out of a solid block of ice and has started to melt.

The most recent images are simply stunning. The ice effect is incredibly convincing and once again we don't think we've ever seen anything like Intel Ice before.

If you'd like to vote for jj_sky5000's super cool mini-ITX system over to our forum.
