    EPIA M10000 m/b & Travla C134 case fit problems

    First off, sorry for the dupe post....

    I have bought the EPIA M10000 motherboard here
    http://www.essencompu.com/nupplysingar.asp?ID=3484

    and I got the Travla C134 case here
    http://www.essencompu.com/nupplysingar.asp?ID=5053

    When I put on the Laptop HD 2.5" it fits but when I add on the slim cd/dvd rom drive it doesn't fit on it. It gets in the way of the two things circled in green. I am wondering how the others have been able to get it to fit.

    If these items do not work with each other I would like to return asap so I ca try to get my money back and get the right parts. Thanks!

    From what I've read you need a smaller heatsink (the part circled). If anyone has a link to one, please post it. I've been searching for awhile, and that's one of the things holding me back.

    It does not strike anyone as retarted that the heatsinks are going to be cooking the optical drive?

    I doubt that would happen with the smaller one.

    Just because they are not going to be touching does not mean they are not going to be directing heat at it.

    I did a quick search on Yahoo! and found that certain retailers "include" the low profile heat sink with their Travla C134 cases... as shown here:

    It seems the place you got your case from does not include the low profile heat sink for some reason.

    I would probably show essencompu the other link where they include the low profile heat sink with the sale of the case and ask them why they do not also include one with theirs. If they say they just don't, you may want to return that too them and buy a case from a vendor that does...

    In my searches, unfortunately, I didn't see any low profile heat sinks being sold seperately anywhere...

    case outlet

    We bought one of this cases at the place I work, for a demo unit, and it came with the heatsink included. I thought that's the way they all came. As a matter of fact, the heathsink was already mounted on the board (we bought both of them from the same guys, they wouldn't sell the case alone). we bought it from case outlethttp://www.caseoutlet.com/shopdispla...rebone+Systems

    Bsxsig,

    It works fine, as long as you put in the low-profile heatsink. Check out the pictures here under C-134. My heatsink came with the C-134. Unfortunately, I think the heatsink is a little udnersized since the temp of the mobo gets hot when the CPU is working hard (J River Media Center drives it to 70degC+). It's a very tight fit. You need to cut the tie-wraps that hold the cables together and spread the wires out as flat as possible to get them to fit between the CDRom dirve and the RAM below it. Other than that, I've been using it successfully for the past 4 months.

    Good luck!
