It's going to be too hot.


Digital Storm has been doing this for a decade, they've thought about it before putting this product to market.

-To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women.

Oh, so the max CPU temp under load is 79 degrees F?

Sorry, I'm calling BS on that chart. Not even idle temps would be that low.

Edit: The chart says 79F. The article says 79C. Nice.

Everyone in the computing world measures temperatures in Celsius.

Yup, but that chart says Fahrenheit at the top.

I didn't notice that, it's a mistake. It also says Celsius in the text of the article farther below.

Do you think that this thing could be upgraded down the road?

Probably the whole thing can be upgraded, but it's never fun working in a tiny case. At the very least you could upgrade the video card, the RAM and the storage. Some configurations have a GeForce GTX Titan, so it should support most video cards on the market unless they're ridiculously huge.
The motherboard is probably standard Mini-ITX, so the array of possibilities would be wide.
