    I just want to make a cheap mini itx box as I have an Atom board, RAM & a laptop HDD lying around.

    Problem is that the big chipset heatsink on the atom dosen't help it fit many cases, be careful!

    i had to hacksaw a little with:

    Try this compucase case available from ebuyer @ £44.99, and also from xcase @ £39.99 but I think that's ex-vat... the xcase site has a better description and pictures, though!

    I was gonna suggest the same one. Looks a nice solid case too. Not sure how efficient the SFX PSU is - its not a pico-ITX or whatever - but interested to hear views from anyone who has bought one.
