Looking for a Fiirestation like case...
« on: March 31, 2008, 08:39:20 am »
I did a search on the forums and found that the 1.1in fanless case that is used for the Fiirestation is custom from VIA and that you can't buy one standalone. Does anybody know if there is a similarly tiny case that is available? I would like to be able to hide a media director behind my TV's rather than use a Shuttle sized case for them.

Thanks for any help :)

EDIT: I found the one that they use, but it only comes as a complete system. If anybody is interested, its available

The unit that Logicsupply stock is exactly the same as the Fiirestation VESA unit. They are made by Via for the embedded signage market and are the units we have tested here too. As far as I know the case itself is custom built for Via and is not available separately.

I just wasn't sure if anybody had found something similar. I can replicate the insides fairly easily, its just finding a case thats small enough to mount behind my TV that I'm stumped on.

With those VIA machines you can forget about using UI2.
