    Hi

    I am still looking for an suitable housing of my carputer. the thing should be small as possible

    the case should be for the epia-M10000, with 2 PCI-cards (sound and WLAN or 2. graphiccard)

    has someone experience on the travla137?

    i like the morex cubid3677, but doesn´t offer unfortunately the necessary place

    thanks for each answer...

    Fundamental problem here. The Epia M10000 only has one PCI slot. Either choose a new motherboard or make some sacrifices in sound/graphics quality/features.

    You can get a USB WLAN adapter...

        Didn't realize that. Thanks for the correction.

            The riser card just turns the PCI card 90 degrees. They do make riser cards with two slots but this case doesn't appear to be able to support that.

              small as possible? make your own!
              I like some of those cubid cases but its just better to make your own. My latest case is an all acrylic 1/4" panels shaped into a rectable ... small as possible.
              Mine needs to be updated.

                Read the review I posted, the C137 does support a double PCI riser with small extensions. There was a note about a space issue with one of the slots in that case, however.

                  OK, the case looks like it will support the double riser. The review showed the single one.

                    If you use a 3.5" hard drive in the C137, you will lose one of the pci slots.

                        I'm wondering if a 3.5" hard drive can be mounted where the cd/dvd is located? Maybe to the underside of the slim cd/dvd mount? Is there room? This way both PCI slots could be used.
