    Possible to build a computer that'll fit in a 1/2 DIN slot?

    Anybody think it'd be possible to build a mini-itx based PC that'll fit inside a 1/2 DIN slot? Or will space be too cramped and overheating will become an issue?

    In short no, unless you cut the heatsink in half and have lots of space behind the board for the harddrive and other needed accesories. Its POSSIBLE if you fine an ITX board that has no fan or heatsink. Heat would prolly become and issue no matter what.
