    I know what you mean, I sent VIA a question about cases and got
    no response. To their credit, they probably get too many general
    questions, and have commercial issues preventing them from recommending
    3rd party case manufactures.

    That said, I've been really happy with their boards in kiosk (custom)
    deployment. They work just like i386 (PIII I think), via audio/IDE, and
    the cvs xfree86 supports the special mpeg video.

    I would like to find a good case to run them at a colo, the cl10000
    seems designed for that, with 2 eth ports. Of the tons of cases
    available they are mainly for home use though.

    So DOES anybody have a recommendation for a colo case?

    Below is my message to VIA.

    Hi,

    looks good but I've not been able to find a suitable case.

    small is good, but my main need is a box that:
    1) has room for 2 full size ATA drives
    2) will allow for quick drive replacement (in raid mirror setup)
    3) internal powersupply (accepts 120v at case)
    4) will survive at continuous 80 degrees F ambient (desirable)
    any other features for a co-location facility welcome!

    I have some experience with mini-itx, and I like them; but building a
    case, or shopping the many cases on the internet really cuts into the
    value, as far as my boss is concerned.

    Thanks!

    // George
