The MB's are 17cm by 17cm. The small case I use has place for a floppy, 
HD, slimline CD, 2 PCI cards and a small 12V to 12V/5V board. The power 
supply is a 12V 6A external supply. The case is 30cm by 28cm by 6cm. 
There is also a Tiny MB 12cm by 12cm. Via announced the producing of 
64bit low power processors.

Some ideas: http://www.mini-box.com/s.nl/sc.8/category.19/it.A/id.330/.f 
And if you like to see some nice, silly, crazy, or fun homemade projects 
with these 17*17 mini-itx boards, look at http://www.mini-itx.com...
