    Has any one fitted a PCI graphicscard into a ZOOMPC case ?

    i have the blue (original) zoomPC automotive case...

    has any one been able to fit in an internal PCI video card ? possibly using a pci riser of some sort ? so i dont have to use VIA's ****ty buggy software...

    i imagine it is possible .. just curious if any one has done it and if so what did u use etc ..

    Don't think it's possible in the Voom case, simply because of the size.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    I've tried - even with a flexi riser... just a few mm off each time.

    Just to echo the above posts, I know quite a few people have asked about it before, all with the same result...not enough room.

    indeed i tried searching but then i relised its called a VOOMPC case lol

    any way .. ive decided to order a pack-box a4 which allows me to use 2 PCI cards which is much better and a VIA PCI riser card

    there is a way to install a PCI card to a voompc case , using a flexi PCI and mounting the PCI card in a external enclosure outside .. but to much hassle lol.

    all this because rubish VIA couldnt embed a half decent graphics card on there mini-itx bords

    Then it's not mounting a PCI card IN a VOOMPC case.... It's mounting it OUTSIDE a VOOMPC case.
