I'm building another MythTV box and have found a good looking case from LC Power - namely the 2019MB.
The downside is that the motherboard requirements are slightly different, only boards 25 x 20 cm will fit (9.6" x 7.8" Imperial).

At present I have a AsRock K7S41GX, but it has just gone pop! This board has only two pci slots so it meets the size requirements.

Does anyone have other board of a similar size that they can recommend?

Looks like you need to look out for FlexATX form factor motherboards. However, the case you mentions specifies it is a microATX case so there seem to be some confusion here.


Tyan, Gigabyte Asus & IBM have FlexATX boards. Tyan makes very nice boards btw.

Another option for you would be mini-ITX/ITX and the recently announced micro-DTX. You will have to check compatibility though.

FlexATX, mini-ITX/ITX & micro-DTX are the only sizes small enough to fit into the space you have. If i'm not mistaken I think the Shuttle range of PCs might use FlexATX motherboards.
