    Looks like it fits right in, were there any special mods you had to do for it? ANy hacking?

      I did the same thing. You have to create your own mount to screw the OPUS to once you take it out of its case, but that is really the only mod.

      Why did you mount your USB/Firewire card in the PCI slot and not in the cutouts above the motherboard connectors?

        Does the case have fans? How does it deal with heat?

          The case comes with one fan. That goes beside the PSU. It appears as though srcstc removed his though.

            Yeah after I mounted the PSU I realized I forgot the fan. I'm either gonna put the fan elsewhere or move the PSU over a bit.

              I'm not planning on putting in a PCI card for a while and there's just more room above the HD for all the cables.

                I added a fan to the other end of my C137 to draw air through the case, I used a 40mm CPU slim fan that I had around. Now I get a through air flow over the OPUS whch is mounted in exactly the same place as this one....



                You can just see the fan to the left of the DVD drive....

                  so you flushed the 90W power supply that came with the case right? It's sad we can,t buy a case alone without the Power Supply.

                  Where did you buy yours, on travla's website, the only e-sellers that has teh case sells them with a mobo mandatory... and only one has the M10000 but it's 354$ for case + mobo + PCI riser (that should be included with the case)

                    If by 'another' case you were talking about mine (havent seen many people putting 150w opuses into C137 mod), then the photo is above... The 150W opus will fit in there even inside the stock case. I used velcro to adhere it into the case.

                    Two small modifications were done to facilitate this. First, the mounting bracket for the CF reader was dremmeled off to make room for a longer PCI card. If you're not using PCI cards, or if your cards are very short it will fit without modificaiton. Second, I moved the molex connector on the Opus 150W to the other corner. There are two places it can come out of the PSU chassis, so this move was fairly obviously necessary. You can see the fitment in the photo. The fan grille lines up pretty well with the holes in the C137 case, and cooling hasn't been a problem even with outside temps up to 110 degF

                    On the C137, a one slot riser card and extension needed to work with Mini ITX boards does come standard. The case comes standard with a 90W psu (unregulated). If you want to use 2 pci cards, you need to get a 2 slot riser card and another pci extension thing. (you dont need a pci extension if you are using a flexatx board instead though). The 90W PSU is a very good PSU, and would be good to sell to someone who is willing to build a regulator, tank circuit, and shutdown controller. I did not want to take the time, so that is why I got the OPUS!

                      Damn mp3car and their dirty censored words. You just have to removed the space from the link above.

                      I pulled out the PSU that came with case. May try and sell it or something.

                        I got a 120W PSU with mine, but that got stripped out. It was for the P4 ITX board, but I think I'd rather have the OPUS 150W inside.

                        So if anyone wants the 120W version of the travla PSU, I have one
