I love seeing so many cool case projects in this thread, also many thanks to anyone who has my wedge case, I saw a few examples and liked the beige one.

This was something new, but I didn't like using it. I wanted a keyboard that was easy to find and I could design to fit perfectly. The PI keyboard also has a USB hub so for a basic setup it reduced the setup and made smaller. The other idea was a fixed base and then print sides and a top that can be swapped and I tried magnets, but it was not strong enough to keep the top in place. It just didn't feel nice to type on.

Very nice and slim design. They replaced the vga port with a sega Saturn one. Which is okay. But I think I would prefer the vga one. I added/fiddled a usbc port for power which cracked a bit of the plastic. Nothing superglue can't fix. :-P
Now there have a new version of this,it has type-c power supply and a power switch

Thought I'd post some pics of my Mini ITX Mister build. It's done, but these things are never done :) Waiting on a better case badge, and I might also add some buttons to the front for osd/reset/user.

The case I used https://www.silverstonetek.com/product. ... 23&area=en is convertible between 2 different sizes by swapping out the top cover and front faceplate. I used the smallest one, which is 63mm tall, and everything just *barely* fits.

The adapter and IO shield are modified and 3d printed from wickedsun's source files: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4738986
I have it setup for analog out as well as HDMI. Due to lack of space, I had to sacrifice two of the available USB ports, so there are only 2 in the back and 2 in the front. That's enough for me though.

I created a simple custom PCB for the LEDs, switches, and the momentary to latching adapter for the power. (I used this switch https://www.pololu.com/product/2808). It was my first attempt at designing a PCB, so I made a few mistakes. It works, but I might do a new version soon.

I think it turned out pretty decent in the end. Looks pretty sleek and modern, and it's nice to finally have it protected and setup with my other consoles instead of bare circuits sitting on a shelf. It's also just amazing to have a working power button :)

Ah hah - just like me here...

viewtopic.php?p=27015#p27015

...so if you ever find yourself adding the tty2oled screen ( viewtopic.php?t=1887 )by venice, drop me a PM.

I am prepared to print you the custom bezel that I used here ( one with green box ) - all you pay via PayPal will be postage and packing.

The silver logo I used came from here ( https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/9413302 ... ch_click=1 ).

Cheers.

USB in my opinion.

There has also been a recent update that if you have WiFi in your MiSTer you can do an over the air update if you choose to set that up.

Lovely additon is this screen.

It's beautiful jawler, but don't you have thermal issues? The fan has nowhere to exhaust to, or am I seeing things wrong?

I have no thermal problems. It has air holes in both sides and the rear fan extracts hot air from inside.
