  • Mini-ITX in a DIN case and mini-itx Q's

    I was toying around some looking at MB's and such rethinking my current setup. Looks to me like a Mini-ITX board will fint insinde a DIN opening (2"x7"). Anyone tried it for sure, I mean fit the whole thing in one box that fits in a DIN size? Alos is mini-ITX a standard or only available from VIA? If its a standard are there other companies that make MB's, if not does the VIA chipset product good sound like my Intel FlexATX board?

    Here is an example of a Mini-ITX board in a DIN size case:

    I've seen a few custom mini-itx cases here that manage to squeeze the system into an old radio. I can't remember the specifics though.

    There are a few other manufacturers making ITX or similar sized MBs. You can do a quick Google search for more details.

      check out this one RUNDIG . Keep in mind you'll need space behind the whole unit for all your cables attached to the motherboard, they'll add a least 3 inches to the depth so make sure you have a deep dash.

          I'm thinking of doing something similar. I keep thinking of ways to shrink all my stuff so I can fit more

            I think it'd be cool to have it in an old NES shell...

            BTW, anyone know if the Epia boards (any or all) offer tv-out, so I don't have to buy a TV card?

              The M 9000 definitely does. I think the 10000 does as well.

                Thanks, I was planning on getting the TM-701L (7" Widescreen LCD w/TSK), but I've heard about resolution problems (not being able to change it, etc...) on the Epia boards. Would I be able to use the onboard video out directly to the LCD, and have it displayed correctly? Also, does the LCD controller (touch controller, whatever it's called) require a PCI slot? I know the Epia's only have one and I don't want to be screwed on expandability.

                (sorry to steer this thread off course...)
