Require Tiny Motherboard
 
For a mod that at this stage cannot be disclosed, I need a small motherboard, the smaller the better. With a PREFERED maximum size of 23cm x 16xm. But if necessary, can be altered to be up to 25cm x 23cm.

What can I get?

It would be best if its something older, because this is not being made to be an awesome PC. Just an awesome case that I can sell.

How is 17x17cm?

Obviously you would need to find a seller in AU, but how is it for size?

:) It is definately small enough.

Hmm...this is intriging. How big is the market for ITX though? Because, what I want the board for, is building up the case, so I can sell it. I found a supplier in AUS, that the cheapest ITX board on there is $179 AUD. Which is a bit expensive for a demo board to build my case with, before I can sell it off.

Well, the ITX boards come in different sizes, but Epia based boards are generally not screaming performers...

Hmm....ok then. In the mean time, ive decided, to get a sheet of perspex, to fill the entire base of the 'case' as its all uneven, and then later on find a motherboard and add mounting points using stand off's I have.

Mini-ITX is 17cm by 17cm . Nano-ITX is 12cm by 12cm.

EPIA based boards are generally designed more for low power consumption than for high performance. However, there are also Pentium-M models, which pack more performance, but require more power.

I know. But they're disgustingly expensive, too :(
