    Question Case for Biostar M7NCG 400 and OPUS 150

    Well, having searched the forums for hours, and seen a couple possible cases for the Biostar M7NCG, I'm still having a hard time finding a case that will work with it and the Opus 150. I've seen the chatter regarding the conformity (or lack there of) of the Opus 150 to the case form factors, and I'm a little confused. What cases will work well with the combo?

    I'm replacing my Shuttle with AMD64 proc to this new combo of the Biostar M7NCG with an AMD-M 2400+ (the 1.35v version, costs more than the 1.45v but hey, I'll be saving power for my devices!). My current rig is just too powerful for the car, I really want to bring it back into my bedroom rather than in the car. It just eats a lot of power, and besides, I'm using an invertor, and I really want to get into the OPUS 150 action. My current rig doesn't have any interaction with car start, etc.

    Anyway, any ideas on a case that will work with the Opus and the M7NCG?

    What is a 'CarPC style look'?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    uhh... those cases come with a power supply, dont they? I thought the point of this was to find something to put an opus 150 into.

    Most cases you will find have PSU's already in them. Think of it this way, the initial system build will be easier hooking it up to AC power and testing in the house vs. trying to find a DC power source or building the software in the car.
