SteamBox Tear Down In YouTube Walkthrough Video
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
SteamBox’s have been in users hands for almost a week now and we’ve been loving all the gameplay videos, OS walkthrough and tear downs that users have been uploading to YouTube. One of our favourite so far is this one below, where the user dismantles the system to show us all of the interior components.
As you can see we’ve got a pretty standard HTPC setup, there is an SFX SPU in there, Nvidia graphics card, low profile CPU cooler, Asus motherboard and some pretty neat and tidy cable routing too. The hard drive is easily removed, but there is also room for a 2nd hard drive in the system should users want to upgrade storage.
This is exactly what Valve want people to do, hack it, tweak it, upgrade it, strip it down. Some users have installed Windows, made Hackintosh systems, dual booted, over clocked and more! And I can’t think of a better way to find out the limitations of your hardware than to give them to 300 eager PC gamers who simply cannot resist taking the thing apart.
Thank you PC Gamer for providing us with this information.
