    I have one of those Casetronic C134 mini-ITX cases and it is DIN alright but the case was too deep to mount in my dash, my car: Subaru WRX STI -2003!
    So make sure you have enough room to fit these cases!
    I am going for a custom made one instead that can fit both lilliput and m10000: www.tmz.com/wrx

      other than those cases, I don't think you have much of a choice....

      the fact is that with computer components you can't really get much shorter....=/

            the nano is not small enough for my project, it's a 1-din autopc with slotload dvd and in-dash 7" tft. the mobo i am using is a PC104 sized PIII/Celeron board from Kontron, it's only 96x90mm in size and only needs +5V, no ATX PSU needed = more space for HW

              hmm, guess i'll have to build my own case then, none of logicsupply's cases are what i am looking for.

                    yeah thats what i tried will its not really handy to much things inside and not really smooth, just get a sheet of aluminium and make you're own.

                    i'm interested to in the c134 heheeh

                      Hi Jan!

                      How much is the PC104 sized PIII/Celeron board?
                      I would consider this if the pricing is in line with the EPIA-boards since the size and power-requirements seems really good...

                        I was thinking...
                        What if I removed the guts from my old cassette player, kept the amplifier and connected it to the line out of the pc, use a slot dvd for the drive, a CF for booting a live OS (maybe some handmade XP embedded). I might also try to use-modify the PSU of the head unit.
                        Any thoughts on that approach?
                        Well maybe with nano-itx things would be more easy...

                            I'm not sure if you can fit indash-lcd along with the dvd-rom and mobo into 1Din case.
                            It just too much for a single unit. Other that that, you can get all the drawings from my side to build the 1Din metal case for EPIA-M mobo.

                              EPIAM-M fits with snap-in DC-DC power suply (such as PW-70A), slimline DVD and CF/IDE card adaptor in 1DIN chassis. All you have to do is use low profile memory and lower (then standart) standoffs for motherboard. tested.
