Having got my Thinstation setup working just the way I wanted I am now looking to refurbish the old PCs.
I have around 25ish mini-atx mobo's and I am looking for a fairly small case for it.
I have no need for CD-rom, nor is there going to be any HD installed however I would like to have "Maybe" front based USB ports.
I plane to underdesk mount these and will even fabricate mounting brackets if need be but most of all they must have a PSU and be cheap.
The room these are going into is to replace fat clients that have been damaged over and over as the room is an un-maned drop in center, hence the under desk mounting with minimal access.
So here is the challange, anyone ready to take it up???
Midget: Thanks for these although these cases are for MINI-ITX boards and I have MINI-ATX boards so I thik these cases are going to be too small.
Or am I wrong???
AHHHH mini ATX thats something completely different and going to be difficult to find many cases that dont have 5 1/4 slots.
Micro ATX are 280x200mm
Mini ITX are 170x170mm
Sorry no idea then.
We are in the process of ordering 65 computers with these Aopen cases, which are Micro ATX, is that the same as Mini ATX which you want?
http://www.myshopping.com.au/PR--262..._Computer_Case about £35 a case with front Audio/USB
For some reason I bookmarked http://linitx.com/index.php a couple of weeks back. I can't see exactly what you're after, but they may be able to help.
we use the 3688's only 'problem' is the ATX lead needs cable tying to the inside of the case as it can get caught int eh CPU fan, otherwise great cases.
sorry re-read post - I made same mistake as midget
these are ITX cases!
Hi All, thanks for the pointers.
I have decided to look at these ( http://www.misco.co.uk/applications/...247716&CatId=9 ) as they will accept my mobo's and are cheap too.
