              you can probably get a diamond tipped drill bit and drill holes in the glass. it would take a long time though and you would have to have a second person spraying water on the drill bit while you do it.

                  yes this is for mac users because it only has one usb c port

                  all pc cases need some usb 3.0 ports the headphone and microphone ports and don't forget the sd card slot

                                Hey Linus, could you please review the Beelink G7 Windows 10 Intel Kaby Lake G i7-8709G? I am quite interested in it but there is not a lot of trusted reviews around, I would really appreciate it

                                              Is it possible to build a 3900x (or 3950x later in September) and a 2080ti into this case without sacrificing performance? If so, it would be quite interesting to see a more practical "extreme" build!

                                              P.S.- Great videos Linus media group, keep up the good work!

                                                            Of course it's over $200... Why are all the decent looking, small form factor cases so damn expensive? I'd really like to build a small powerful, inexpensive PC in the near future, but don't want to spend 10-15% of my budget on the case alone.

                                                                                          Just an idea that I hope someone will do.

                                                                                          I've seen a lot of mini-ITX builds lately in these shoe box cases. And regardless of how plain and black these things all are, the case builds are often described as "refreshing" due to the lack of RGB. But the truth is, they are just small black boxes that completely get lost in whatever room they are in.

                                                                                          What I want to see is a build where you use one of these little black shoe boxes, but do a custom water cooled build where the tubes of the loop go outside of the case. Add lights where appropriate.

                                                                                          Usually, these small cases don't have enough room for custom loops anyway, so break through the walls and build your loop outside. You'd probably want to choose a case where each side of the box mounts independently on a frame so some of the sides can have tubes through them and some are for access to the internals.

                                                                                          To describe this idea a little more. Picture a small black box with water cooling tubes extending out of the sides of the case. Drill your own holes through the case and route the water loop as you need to up, out, over and around the outside of the case. Same thing with custom RGB lighting either using strips or placing lights near where the water tubes exit/enter the case.

                                                                                          In this way, the small black shoebox becomes a plain base for what could be a dramatic water and light show.

                                                                                          What do you think?
