Saw this thin mini ITX case at amazon. Looks good!

A seller on Taobao has this case as well as a normal itx size one. They also have two other similar cases, one of which looks like a miniature old style Mac pro. I've considered buying the MetalBook case but I wish they'd make it slightly larger for better ventilation. It's about the same size as the Streacom FC7 Alpha and that can fit a 92mm fan.

Nice! I like the look way better than some ugly vent, great job getting the hole so tight to the L12.

Yep, that looks very clean. The cuts are very flush with the cooler!

Seen it too there and on eBay. I like the design of it. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery in this case because the look is taken right from the G-Technology enclosure LOL. Regardless, it's a nice case even if it does support Thin ITX only. But it looks big enough to fit a regular ITX board there, and with some careful cutting it should be possible.

I see.. I never thought it was originally a hdd enclosure. Thanks for the URL, i think it's just proper that we quote the original design as well smile.gif

For sure someone handy here could make an awesome build using those cases.

I thought about building in one of these, but after trying a similar case I am not very eager to try one of these. The aluminum holds in all of the heat and it has little ventilation, only the middle case makes much sense as it has a vertical air flow, so maybe the little 60mm case fan might do a small amount of good. I'd prefer a slightly fatter case with support for dual 92mm fans at the bottom.

I would find just drilling the vent holes to be tedious tongue.gif

The design on the far left is actually quite clever. The sheet that bends around the sides is a single piece held by the four spacers at the bottom (on the feet) attached to the U-shaped metal piece that has the vents. That puts all the screws and fasteners are on the bottom, invisible from the naked eye. I call it clever because it's easily done with basic tools, no need for milling or routing or requiring some special attachments to the case.

I'd probably buy the case on the right, though. Anyone know where I could get that?

Found it on a Japanese site:

but can't seem to find it anywhere else. It looks like they ship internationally but its gonna cost a pretty penny (~$300 to the US).
