first of all i would like to state i`ve been coming here for the last year - and this site has inspired most of my mods (and by that i mean u r the MAN)

i`ve decided i`ve modded enough to take on my own sphere project...
got everything i need to do that accept the motherboard - i`ve landed myself a lightbulb ball like yours only it`s 30cm diameter (X2 radius...)
and i was wandering if an matx board would fit in??? (from your experience?) becuase i might be able to get a used asus a7n266 (nforce2 matx) it`s 24.5 X 24 but i can also get something a bit smaller like most matx`s...

Just use pythagora's formula to calculate what will be the cards dimensions from opposite edges. c^2=a^2 + b^2

but now i`m bangd... all i can find are matx mobos and they`re too big :cry:

is there any smaller form factor then matx - is there an nforce2 motherboard out there that supports it?

is that why you chose the via epia?

(sory to bother with all the questions but i have some great ideas to improve and i relaly wanna try this out (AND the woman said that`s the only design she`s letting me put in the living room...)

Well, I had this EPIA on my hands when I came up with the idea of spherical case so I used it. There are some other small form factor MBs but only a couple of days back I saw the perfect hight performance board for this kind of project:

"Mini-FlexATX Socket 478 Pentium 4 DDR Motherboard
with 533/400 MHz FSB, Intel Extreme SVGA, Intel PRO/100+ LAN
Hi-Speed USB 2.0, IEEE1394, 5.1-CH/SPDIF Audio and TV-out Interfaces"
