Computer Question *Rep Given*

Looking to build a NAS for all of my media.

Want a low power option so opting for an atom processor and mobo http://www.ebuyer.com/product/191129

Problem is I can't find a decent matx or itx case as none of them have enough slots for hard drives (looking for 4 internal slots and the most I can find is 2). Any way I can get this mobo to fit a normal ATX case?

Googling this does not come up with a decent answer.

Why don't you just go for a QNAP or a Drobo?

A lot more than I was planning to spend, loks good but probably has way more features than I would need.

Think I could build one for £100

Case + PSU £30
Mobo + Proccessor £55
Ram £15
Freenas as the OS

I guess I could do that. Would rather have it all internal though, surely I can't be the first person to ever need to know this. No definitive answers online that I can find.

Enjoy your Star Trek :) :thinking:

Pretty sure this should fit in an ATX case, as long as the case has mounting points in the right place.

that isn't actually how it'd match up but you get the idea - the case needs to have holes in the right places. Some ATX cases will some won't so i guess you'll need to buy one in a shop so you can take measurements unless you can find the specs online for the case...

Yeah thats the only problem. I know it will obviously physically fit in the case but its just whether the fittings match up as the case isnt designed for that type of mobo.

Seems like this is the best answer I can hope for. Rep for all. :)
