    Glove Box Case

    Can someone who has built a case or mounted their carpc in the glovebox post some pics of your setup?

    I bought a case but I don't have much room in my truck and the case won't fit under my seat. This seems like my only option.

    Thanks!

    It would help if you told us

    a) what computer you plan on using
    b) what case you have
    c) how big your glovebox is
    d) does the motherboard + all required cards physically fit inside your glovebox? with how much room to spare?

    By "truck" I assume that you mean "trunk"? What type of car/truck do you have?

    Sorry, I was in a hurry and forgot to post specs:

    a. Mini Itx VIA 800mhz

    b. I small case but it is still too big to fit anywhere in my truck.

    c. I'll get back to you on that one! I'll post measurements when I get home.

    d. no cards, just the motherboard, hard drive, and psu. Everything else will be usb.

    Take a look at my site for a small case. It's not in my glovebox, but it could almost fit (12"x6"x2").
