I had at one point an EPIA MII10k, 300GB HDD and 256MB RAM (whoops,
really need more) anyhoo, there was plenty of space in the case for a
NOVA-T-500. Other than being an utterly gutless system for a combined
FE/BE it would, hypothetically, of worked.
One word of advice, unless they've changed the supplier, those 40mm fans
VIA use can, will and do, whine like crazy. But if you wanted a small,
low power, combined unit, a modern C7 based EPIA board could probably do
it without the issues of my older C3.
