a while ago i built up a shuttle using alu. tube from bunnings and a hdd rack from chenbro. it was originally meant to be esata using a sata port multiplexer card, but it never seemed to work, so i just use 4x sata > usb cables and a hub in it.
pics:






just won an auction for a PC-on-a-card that i thought i could put in there to make the case NAS instead of USB.

link to pdf of card specs
it's got a usb header (only 1.0) , and a 10/100 eth, and supports socket 370 up to 500mhz.

is it worth using for this? i was originally going to use it for a carputer, but now i'm going another way.

just worried the usb 1.0 will make it shite for media (the shuttle is TV/music/movies) but with no on board sata i don't think there's a way round that

you could always put it in your current pc, as long as you've got enough hdd bays and sata ports. either that, or you could sell them, and just get a NAS or portable hdd from the money you make.
