Hood, what computer board are you in use of? It seems very compact when it comes to size.

Its a micro atx mobo, based on the Intel Atom. The one I have is now discontinued

but there are plenty of similar mobos around.
I have used Via Pico mobos in another couple of machines, they are really tiny (100mm x 72mm, see pic)

What are your impressions from the Intel Atom? As you know, CSMIO products take out the pulse generation load from the PC and hence we only need a general PC with Ethernet capability to run Mach.

I am now offered a second-hand Dell Optiplex 160 for as low as 65 Euro.

The specs are:
CPU: Intel Atom 1.60GHz
Memory: 2GB DDR2
Hard Drive: 60GB SATA


According to the Dell website:
Dimensions:

Weight: 4.6lbs/2.09kg
Height: 9.02"/22.9cm
Width: 1.85"/4.7cm
Depth: 8.86"22.5cm


Maybe it is a good machine for start. I couldn't save the space for a PC inside the electrical panel so I will be mounting a second one with a PC and protection circuit for it inside. But it's much better to be something compact and the best is something like your model but they are no big availabilities locally and I don't have much time left to wait for a PC lol :)

Should work fine, the via pico I use on two machines is only 1Gig CPU and the Atom I use is 1.6Gig.
