Craft Computing has posted up their latest video on building a retro SFF PC. Normally, this is an incredibly difficult challenge due the lack of an ITX standard during the Windows 98SE era. However, Craft Computing used an Atom powered ITX board to solve that issue. In typical retro computing fashion, a lot of trial and error was required. The resulting PC though is an excellent outside-the-box retro machine complete with PCI bifurcation, external audio, and a GeForce 6200 GPU. Check it out below.

Having recently experimented with older hardware, I would love to see some proper small form factor cases that are designed for retro builds. Something a bit like the Sliger Cerberus but could house an optical drive or a floppy drive.

Also a modern SFF case that has been designed for AT or Baby-AT cases would be amazing.

Edit - Having watched the video some more, this is exactly why I went M-ATX rather than ITX in the end. M-ATX just works for older setups with the amount of expansion cards you use.
