    I don't see why not.....just use raisers to mount it in the case.

            no you can't ...

            The shuttle version casing for the OPUS 150 is made of aluminum and it is there for a reason. It is there to dissipate heat and it does not simply just come off the risers. On the underside of the board there is a heat sink BRIDGE that attaches the board to the shuttle casing. If you took the Shuttle opus PCB off its aluminum shell it would overheat. You would need to get a fan to prevent this from happening. If your going to do that your better off just buying the regular opus 150 in the larger steel casing with a fan already incorporated and manipulating that.

                ahh ... just make sure you take the fan where ever you put the opus board.

                You also might want to look into if the shuttle casing will fit your install. It will save you having to worry about cooling and you could probably buy it from opus for 20 dollars or something.

                  my pc won't be mounted in a case as such. all the components are to be mounted separately on MDf stealthed away
                  the power supply is on its way now and i'll probably take the case off when i mount it

                    I took it off, I made my own case and mounted just the board behind the mobo
