    I looked for the same type of case in the past. I dont remember finding any.

    I did find some good options that I never looked into.
    Gigabyte TA1/TA2 (looks like a sony PS2)
    a complete SFF PC


    Lian Li PC-9100
    Flex ATX case with floppy and slim CD bays
    My first carPC!
    MP3/CD player
    Celeron 633MHz - 10GB Seagate - 64MB PC100 - Win XP

    Soon to actually find its way into the car!

    Travla C134, among others

    Got an Epia M10k in a Travla C134 w/a Panasonic slot-load CDRW/DVD drive. Nice n' tiny.

    Oooooh. "Micro" not "mini." Whoops. Nevermind.

    too bad gigabyte doesn't sell the case by itself. That's by far the smallest MicroATX case I've seen yet. I searched and searched but finally gave in and bought a Minuet. It's "small", but considering I don't need any space for drives (using CF card for hard drive, and USB external DVD and USB laptop hard drive) there's a lot of empty space. It uses regular size bays though.

    Hmmm, I dont think Gigabyte makes those models anymore. They do have a similar looking mITX PC called the TA3.

    I have one of these (Used for HTPC):

    http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...190-018&depa=1

    Similar to most mATX cases, but allows for full height PCI cards. Fairly large at 5.75"H x 14.5"D x 15"W vs the minuet (3.8''H x 16.8''D x 12.75W)... If the antec minuet supported full height PCI cards or the aria had been available, I'd have gotten those instead. (I love antec cases)

    There is also the Antec Aria, which is more Shuttlesque (Tall and slim at 10.6" x 7.9" x 13.2" (WxHxD))
