    That motherboard you're choosing looks nice. Are you trying to keep the system low cost or are you looking at higher-end mini-ITX boards?

    @ Kalenth,

    Are you talking about the LCD controller cable? Looks to be orange in your picture. If so that cable is hard to work with on any of these screens, also very delicate, that's where an x-acto blade was my tool of choice, in locking and unlocking that ribbon cable holder. Its hard to seat it correctly and then lock down the holder. If its even .5mm off it will lock down but it won't work or will give erratic display. That's the part were patience is really the only way to get it.

    @galvitron, I am still looking at motherboards, as I really want to use an M3 power supply but I don't think the M3 has the extra 12volt rail for processors that use it. I am going to look into it a bit more, but motherboard deliberations are still in the works.

    BLK, I guess all I needed was some encouragement. I played with the bar a bit, and finally figured it didn't just slide into place. Once I got it moved, I delicately reposistioned the board so the bezle would fit tight to the case, drilled, mounted, and everything booted right up. Feels good!

    Thanks again for that case, it just looks so clean.

    That unit looks nice! Its amazing how clean the glossy white epoxy finish can add to the aesthetics. How about a pic from the backside

    Also read up on your monitor of choice, its quite a bit more expensive, almost double what i've been paying for monitors, but the specs seem inline with the price. Let us know how it works in the sun, while driving, etc.

    So far I have been very pleased. I think I'm going to bring the IR sensor through the bottom of the bevel, so I can adjust the monitor if necessary without moving all the buttons. Anyhoo, I'll edit this post when I get my work log started and link to that.

    I just contacted up mini-box to ask them that question as I was hoping on using the M3 for Intel's new motherboard. They pointed me to this http://www.mini-box.com/4-Pin-P4-Power-Cable_2 Which is a molex to 4 pin 12v adaptor. Hope this helps.

    Well the M2-ATX has that P4 connector but is of course much larger than the M3. You can always use a hard drive style molex to P4 plug adapter coming off of the M3's HD connectors...
