Idle musings of a tinkerer... How about splitting the PC into two - one part with PSU, Mobo, etc in a bog standard case, and then a small "break out box" with just DVD drive, an IR receiver, power/reset switches plus LEDs, maybe a USB hub. You could do it in something the width of the DVD drive and twice as high. All you'd need is an IDE cable plus power and switch cables. Wouldn't that sit nicely in an A/V rack? Rest of the box could be well hidden away to keep the noise down, reduce visual impact etc. ....Just a thought - anyone think of a reason why not?
