  • Mini itx case

    It would be nice to have a case that would:
    1) fit the Opus 150, but in the same time being small and SLIM
    2) not come with a power supply, leaving space for the Opus
    3) have a good ventilation system (and preferably radiotors like the amps)
    4) allow to install it like an amp in the car
    5) no cd rom slot (for those that have an external one, thus creating more room inside)
    6) fit a desktop HDD
    7) have all the ports on one side
    8) last, but not least, a high quality finish.

    This is what I can think of at the moment. If you know of such a case, please, tell me about it. Also, If you have other preferances than the ones listed above, post them. I've been searched and searched, but nothing.

    See my post on the C137, its not that big compared to a power amp I have next to it and it fits all of those requirements.

          I did before I started this thread. But the 137 is not a very looking case, by my taste ofcourse. I've never seen it with my own eyes, but I don't think those are high quality materials. (8)
          It also has a cdrom slot (5). This is important for me first beacouse of space, and second, becouse if you don't put a cd unit in, the outer look isn't very attractive anymore.
          And in your install, you have used a 2,5 HDD. (6)

            I'd say I'm pretty good with everything. However, I'd like to buy one already made, for various reasons. The only one that comes close to my requirements is the not yet released Mapower:

              they have their own power supply and soft shut down controler, they all fit in the case they trying to get it down to single din size to take the place of a radio.
              Its DOPE!

                Thanks, but it doesn't meet the requirements: does'n fit Opus, has a cd slot,... and the rest of them.

                  It doesn't necesarily to be that small, but it has to be slim.

                        I have used a 3.5" disk, it's just a low profile one, you dont have to fit the CDROM, the front is blanked.

                        the case IS quite hight quality.

                        Regards

                          in my opinon this is better then opus
                          smaller too, all around problem free aswell.

                            Craig, as I said, I didn't see the case with my own eyes, so, when you have the time, could you make some pictures that will sustain what you said? The ones I found on the net convinced me otherwise. Thanks.

                              Yes, I'm familiar with that before I knew about Opus. It was called I think MPSV III or something like that. Anyway, what I want for my car computer is quality: the best of everything. As for the rest, I have it covered, but the case is still a problem, and that't why I've asked my fellow mp3car members to helpe me out, as they did before. Thanks.
