  • Epia M1200 and Travla C134 Case

    OK, I am a little stumped!

    Can anyone confirm if this mobo will fit in the case? Cause it looks like a lost cause.

    I seem to be having an issue with it not wanting to close, and it looks like the PCMCIA and CF Card Reader are obstructing the hard drive.

    Can anyone spread any light on the matter? I've ripped my case to pieces (well dremmeled it) and it'd be nice if it fitted, otherwise its gonna be a fabrication of my own using the bits inside it!

    It'd be a shame, cause the case is really pimping

    As far as I know, the C134 works with the M10k only (and perhaps some of the older boards too). With the M10k and laptop drive, there isn't really any extra room. If the M12k has even a slightly different footprint (CF flash, PCMCIA, or other stuff), I'd bet it won't fit. If you're seeing obstructions, that pretty much answers your question already. Sorry to confirm the bad news.

      Yep, CF and PCMCIA Obstructed

      I've had to remove these from the mobo to make th unit fit, which is a shame as its why I bought the case and mobo! :/

      Will be installing XP Pro on it today.. so will keep you posted.

        Windows XP Pro SP1a Installed

        Well we're getting there, its got the OS installed on it now

        I've gotta download the media players now, oh and pull some MP3s off of my iPod for demo purposes.

        Just its such a shame I could not use the case and the CF/PCMCIA hardware at the same time.

        Installation of the OS was a breeze, just gotta play now!

              I have the MII12000 and the 2699. It fits very well, and there is no obstruction of the CF/PCMCIA riser card. Be sure to get low height RAM so that the Slim CD ROM has enough room to clear it. Also, get a laptop hard drive instead of a desktop hard drive. That way, you could do some minor modification and fit an Opus 90w in there. The included Morex 60w might not have enough juice for you, but it comes with a wall plug for installing at your desk.

              I've found the quality of the 2699 to be quite good. It's not as pretty as some others, but all edges are round, and the construction is very solid.
