Precisely why I am going to try to stick with it; I like the itx cases and

I have. Another problem with slim micro atx cases is there is not much
headroom for a heatsink. The zalman "flower" would probably work if you
could mount the fan sideways and blow out towards the PSU. But then you
have to find a motherboard with the CPU socket facing the right direction
AND without huge capacitors crammed right up against the socket. I
actually spent a lot of time looking at this but it was starting to feel
"obsessive" without much promise. So I took another look at the EPIA and
here I am.

Yep, me too. Maybe I can talk them into an evaluation copy :-)
