Hello Guys

I need an advise on good itx case with half size or full size PCI/PCI-E card slot but without any ATX PSU stuff.
I prefer to not to use the DVD (slim or full size) and include either 2.5" Cardreader or even end up with just couple of USB ports on the front panel. Minimization is everything :-) Raiser card option is also suitable.
Planning to build a silent itx E350 mediacenter and include a DVB-S2 Card for sattelite TV.

So far I've got:
- Soyo E350 mini ITX Motherboard - made in Taipei ;-)
- Z3-ATX(ignore the ATX in name) wide input Pico PSU - made in china
- previously used 2.5 HDD 250 Gb(will be replaced by SSD)

so far tested and all working fine...

any comments are welcome

Thanks

P.S. I've seen a comparasion table on mini-itx store website, but so far can't find any case that fits above statements.

This will do what you're looking for. Make sure you get a low powered CPU and add another quiet 80mm fan, or it'll be hard to keep quiet as the case is very small.

Looks great though and I've done a successful build in it without much problem.

Thanks for your reply - these are not selling - out of stock now - will keep an eye on this one.

Also found alternative on chinese "ebay" - http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/E-i7-mounted-half-height-graphics-aluminum-i7-HTPc-chassis/800900_855263179.html

however the price is almost the same :-(

so far the only suitable one - is done by myself to use:
- 12 cm exhaust fan(to get the silent operations) - perhaps working under 900 rpm
- 3.5 or 2.5 hdd mounting options
- fancy look inside the media shelf :-)
