I have a somewhat unhealthy addiction to low power & mini-itx type systems, with over a dozen systems around the house - that's about a dozen too many these days. So, I'll be downsizing in the next few weeks.

These are low power, drawing around 10w to 20w depending on the power supply, and they have far more computational power than something like a Raspberry Pi.

The three MSI boards were used for Pihole, Home Assistant, FreeNAS and the Biostar one was used for a retro Windows XP gaming system. They're reliable, and I've tested them with 16gb.

It's always been difficult to find decent and affordable cases for compact Mini-ITX builds here in India. A few years ago, PrimeABGB used to stock some nice Silverstone cases but those started at Rs 4000. There's a Cooler Master 110 that is sometimes available at around that price these days.

Before the GOI/Aliexpress drama, the Realan aluminium cases were a good option, paired with a compact PicoPSU-type dc-dc atx power supply & 12v adapter.

As for what I used, back in the days of eBay India there was a seller that specialized in thin clients, they were called Thin-PC or something. They had a liquidation stock of some HCL branded Morex T3410's at about Rs 1000 each. They also sold SATA Disk-On-Modules and those DC-DC ATX power supplies. I haven't been able to find that seller anywhere else online.

For the gaming machine, it was meant for Windows/DOS games from original Command & Conquer upto the GTA3 era. For that, it was pretty decent. I prefer Retropie on an Asus Tinkerboard for emulation.

Thank you so much for responding with pics, they look amazing, I myself put together the Circle Lil for family office needs, but yes I have imported a Relan case from Aliexpress, the cases you have look good, presuming you are running them with Pico psu as well, would you be willing to sell 1 of the cases as well as a part of 1 set I may want to purchase to tinker?

Made payment for a MSI mobo + proc combo.
payment received, will ship out tomorrow. thanks!

Interested if any of the hardware (particularly the Windows XP build) can run Windows 98SE natively. Please let me know!
At this point, running 98SE in a VM would be better for compatibility. The AM1 platform wasn't intended to support Windows XP, but manufacturers like ASRock have made drivers available. People have used Windows Server with Hyper-V for virtual machines on these.

Ah, well. The problem is that not many VM suites support Windows 98, and even if they do, there's no 3D acceleration which native hardware will provide. Thanks for your suggestions though.
