2017 will certainly be a year to remember, with not one, not two, but 3 Mini-ITX motherboard projects in the works.
- ÉclaireXL: FPGA based
- 1088XEL: Original Atari VSLI chips
- Atari 65XE on miniITX: Original Atari VSLI chips
Of course none of these were meant to go inside a standard Atari 8-Bit case, although I'm sure that won't be a deterrent to the talent that exists in the Atari world today. So my thinking behind starting this topic was to provide a venue for either using a commercially available Mini-ITX case, or using something of the more DIY variety, either 3D printed or modifications made to a commercial case. I would also like to see people post cool new cases and links to sources of such on the open market, as well as pictures of completed projects. So to start things off I'll post a few to begin with.
This has got to be my favorite example of what can be done by modifying an existing case and keyboard.
Owner: 917k Motherboard: ÉclaireXL Case: iStarUSA S-21
And here's what can be done by having custom panels manufactured to replace the originals on a commercial case.
Owner: Mytek Motherboard: 1088XEL Case: Realan H80
A few other commercial case possibilities.
GEEEK A20 (not too big, but still presents possibilities of adding in real hard drives)
BitFenix Prodigy M (rather large for a Mini-ITX board, but loads of room for whatever)
