    Try one of these (they come in various colors too), its 4" x 13" x 16.5"(HxWxD):

    Micro ATX case at Newegg

    An opus 150w fits on its side (with the case removed & a little mod of the lid)

    EPoX mATX SocketA w/onboard Geforce4MX / 512MB PC2700 / AthlonXP 1600
    Lilliput / DVDrom / Opus 150W / WD 3.5" 160GB / SB Audigy NX
    XP home / Road Runner / iGuidance 4.0

    So... anyone know of a 2" high case? Up to 3" might work but is pushing it. micro Atx + space at the side for a 3.5" hard drive is what I'm looking for.

    How much modding would be required to fit the Opus 150?

    You should tell people it's a proprietary Tektronix diagnostics and media system.

    I think I'll make my next case from a LeCroy or Rohde&Schwarz carcass... maybe with all the buttons and knobs left on the front. Or rig it so the scope screen dances to the music.

    Has anyone ever tried a 1U rack server? That's what I was thinking of before I found out about other options. They're really slim, but usually have a monster footprint (may or may not fit under a front seat). I was going to mount it in one of my rear cabinets, mounted just like in a rack.

    I did some googling on the case and found that the Tektronix NC221H Network computer was sold in late '97 for a cool US$3000 (it came with a 21" monitor though).

    (but i dont think i can get any more - sorry!)

    I work in high-tech auctions. Finding a Tektronix carcass is usually not difficult. In fact, if anyone (in the Bay Area) wants one, let me know, and I'll see what I can round up.

    Now, a LeCroy or Rohde&Schwarz carcass might be a little tougher... not a lot of carcasses from $40000 test equipment lying around. (luckily, Tektronix is the cheap ****)

    Used to have some old Car Diagnostic equipment. Had this one with a 12" square button panel on the side. Kinda nifty and would look retro, dunno what happened to it though. (The entire machine was the size of a large book-case).
    I personally use a Syntax mini-case. It works rather well and has an external PSU, keeping the temps down nicely.
