The M5X is a Compact Mini-ITX Enclosure that is capable of housing both embedded and socket Mini-ITX boards whilst measuring just 63 x 192 x 196mm (2.3 litres). The M5X is perfect for pairing with fanless motherboards due to its well-ventilated design. Auxillary cooling is possible by using up to 4x additional 40mm cooling fans.

Provided without a power supply. Many plug in DC-DC PSUs and AC Adapters are available, or use with a motherboard with embedded DC PSU (e.g. Jetway JNF94-270, JNC9I-525 or Zotac D2550-ITX-B WiFi Supreme)

Solid Steel frame construction with strong Black ABS front panel.

Drive Bays: Up to 2x 2.5in HDD/SSD (or 1x 3.5in HDD*) mounted on tray above the motherboard; Drive tray has three mounting positions to maximise motherboard compatibility. *3.5in drive compatibility is limited to Thin-ITX motherboards.

Front Panel: Power Switch, Blue Power or HDD LED. 2x USB 2.0 ports.

Rear Panel: 5.5mm hole for DC Input socket, Punch-out for Serial port (DB9) connector (Serial port on header cable required - often provided with Jetway boards).

Underneath: Punch-outs for 100 x 100 VESA mounting (VESA mounting screws required).

Mounting: Rubber Feet for Desktop use and Wall Mount Brackets provided.

Supported boards: All Embedded Mini-ITX boards (Atom, C3, C7 etc), and any Socket Mini-ITX boards which can be fitted with a low profile heatsink such as the Akasa 7106HP or K25. Please note that Intel 35W TDP retail processors are provided with a suitable low-profile heatsink./p>

Not supported: Socket boards with standard height heatsinks (use a low profile heatsink if possible).

Choosing a Power Supply: Select your external AC Adapter and internal power supply (picoPSU) according to your motherboard and processor requirements. Typically an Atom board or Socket board with 35W TDP CPU are paired with a picoPSU-90 and 80W AC Adapter. A Socket board with larger TDP CPU is typically paired with a picoPSU-150/160-XT and 150W AC Adapter. More power supplies are possible - check the configuration form below or our full power supply page.

Measurements: 62(H) x 192(W) x 196(D) mm. Volume: 2.3 litres.

Building Tips: Some serial port hoods may need to be modified if fitted next to the internal DC board. The internal DC board can be fitted on the opposite side of the case if motherboard components allow.

Cooling: Highly vented design often does not require additional cooling. Fitting of up to 4x 40x10mm internal fans into side panel is possible. The actual amount of fans that can be fitted depends on the number of fan headers available and the space above your choice of motherboard.

Integration Notes: Supplied in a brown OEM box.
