It does look awsome...and congratulation to you on a job well done. No, I didn't delete it. This is another Intel all-in-one CPU with HD3000, and it is 65w version.....

The included 65w brick might be on the edge, but this "90W HP GATEWAY" can be added.....

Or use the intel core i3 2120T if you don't want to use a 90W brick. It is powerfull enough for xbmc. I use the core i3-2100T with the same case and the included 65W brick without problems.

Antec always includes a throwaway I/O plate. I am not sure why. It seems to be there only for cutting your fingers when you try to remove it.

What, you haven't heard about the 26 GHz octa-core i7 2100T?? Just kidding...it should have been i3.
