    Opus + Epia.. How to get it in the case?

    I just recieved my Opus supply yesterday.. at least temporarily i want to put it in my slim line case that I got my epia in so i can stick it back under my seat untill I finish designing my new setup.

    Anybody have any suggestions for attaching the psu to the case?

    I was thinking of drilling holes in the case and just bolting it in, and use plastic collars as spacers.

    I know some people have already put this together.. Let me hear what you did!

    Thanks!

    I had not seen that. Thanks. I just called caseoutlet and they talked me out of the mini ITX-2677R because I have a VIA M MB. Do y'all think that will be a problem. I really want to get this thing put together ASAP!

    I ended up just gutting the case, drilling some holes, and bolting it all down.

    Of course now that i've done all that.. the hard drive crapped out (hasn't even been in the car yet )

    Sorry to hear about the hard drive. I know how bad it sucks not to have your project up and running.

    The current mini-itx cases 26xx do not properly house the EPIA M's. There will be a new model out shortly to take care of this.

    Look at http://www.mini-itx.com .

    I bought a EPIA-M and a ITX case from idot.com and everything fits perfect.

    From what I've read, there is a problem with using the PCI slot that it interfears with the audio ports.

    Also, The ATX Power Cable is a little short.

    mini-itx.com talks about it, but it may only be the models with the 60 watt atx psu. Also, if you have the case with the front USB ports, it has the wrong connector for the EPIA M.
