Description

Background First off, I know this is terrible and I'm likely to receive large amounts of flak for doing this build. But as the Joker would say, "I did it because it was fun." Why did I choose to do this? Well, the answer is two reasons. First, I crammed a bunch of parts into a reinforced 20.5 ounce (here in the United States we still use archaic units of measurement for some reason) box of Lucky CharmsTM simply for the Lulz factor; the whole idea started off as a dare from a friend of mine and I couldn't possibly be wrong. The other and more important reason is to demonstrate that a PC can be built in virtually any enclosure and can be used for a variety of purposes.

Purpose This setup is purely temporary. I am using these parts for an upcoming build where I will be experimenting with FreeNAS in a budget system. We'll see where that goes. In my main rig Deadpool (which I will be upgrading soon--see my past build guide for that) there is a 3 TB hard drive that is becoming full... so I need a NAS solution to counteract that. But for now, I just decided to temporarily dedicate these parts to building a small PC--somewhat jokingly, of course.

Hope you like it. With all the political drama here in the States I hope it brings some comic relief to you.

Should have waited for a Cap'n Crunch build to bust that one out. It would have been my choice for a cereal box build anyway. Maybe he needs more XP.

I honestly don't have words for this, but i am upvoting it anyway. I still dont know if i should love this build or hate it, but one thing is for sure, i am hungry now.

It's only a bit of a fire hazard.

I really appreciate the humour here. Over 9000 XP--hehe.

I have to comment about this one thing: I have been one of those people who is very, very guilty of eating the marshmallows only in the box.

Can you please make me a cereal box with the Honey Bunches and Oats with Almonds? Now that would be a PC I would love to have too... Of course, I'm not sure how to prevent the heat so perfectly. Great build, love it!

Not really. The chip is rated at a mere 25W and maxes out at 42 degrees. And that's on P95 with large FFT!

Nice build so no way to mount easily a 3.5 inch hard drive. Definitely a person could sit on that during a LAN party. Two thumbs up.

I have a SSD and a 6 TB HDD coming for it soon. That will be for the actual server build itself.
