Shuttle SX58H7 System - Am I crazy?

First I bought an 27" iMac and it was a total disaster. So I'm thinking about building the system listed below. I'm play some games but it's not a huge consideration. I'm looking to build a versatile, fast, small, attractive system.

  1. Sigh ... It CAN be DONE ... But if I try to put my pet Bengal Tiger in a dog carrier ... he's gonna be mighty pissed off.

    = Al =
  2. LOL - I'm shooting for an American Bobcat.
  3. Better turn it into a wind tunnel.
  4. Are saying the system is going to run super hot??? Because I don't want that at all. I'm not planning to O/C it. I'm open to better solution for a small form factor PC. My only thing is that I don't want a cube like a lot of the matx cases provide. I would rather have something taller and thin than short and fat.

    "Super Hot?" ... Well ... certainly not as cool.

    It is a personal decision ... This is putting the largest desktop socket into (pretty much) the smallest form factor case. This is not "optimal" .... It can be done (If you NEED this) ... Cool it well.

    I have been wanting to mount a powerful Vid-edit sys on a hand truck. This might be a candidate ... Barring some special app ... I would not get such a small case. Tiger >>> Hampster Cage ... I mean ...sure ... figure it out.
