Many people choose to build their own PCs, but only a few dare to encase them inside of a retro gaming console. This modder built a HTPC in the shell of an Nintendo 64. It’s also a hackintosh.
The modder goes by the handle Polvorito. He found a used N64 console at a flea market for just 15€. He cleared out all of the unnecessary hardware and mounted a Zotac ION-ITX A-E mini-ITX motherboard: an Atom-based system with integrated Nvidia Ion graphics.
It also runs pretty silent, which is a bonus, although it wasn’t easy to get it quiet and cool at the same time. I wish I had an HTPC in an N64. Yes, I’m jealous.
