    Remove Case DC-DC PSU?

    Okay, I think I just about have this figured out and need a bit of confirmation. Most of the ITX cases I have found come with an included PSU; however, since I am installing in a car, I need a PSU with startup / shutdown control (e.g., M1-ATX, OPUS, etc.). So, for purposes of discussion, when I connect the M1-ATX to the mobo, HDD, and DVD / CD, I am completely bypassing the PSU supplied with the case and could really just remove it, correct?

    If this is the case, does anyone know where one can find a VIA compatible case that does not include a default PSU? I know there are places that sell them with the car DC-DC as standard, but from what I have found, most of these already include the mobo as well and I can buy the case with the default PSU, add a car su / sd PSU, and buy the mobo individually cheaper!

    Thanks!

    Correct.

    You need a mini-ITX case with no power supply. Search for that.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
