in the end i went for the Streacom F8B Case.
But it seems its out of stock in the EU, so that i have to wait until the end of july.

I changed the mobo a little bit, because the passive cooled case requires a specific board layout / cpu placement
they list suitable boards on their website

hardware is getting tested right now
the boxed cooling fan of the A3500 is fine on idle systems, but really annoying on workload

case should be here next week. rest runs smoothly so far

Did not build an AMD APU system yet but they seem to suit the needs of a HTPC quite well. I hope the desktop trinity models become more readily available soon. The A10 seems to be a good performer, maybe overkill for a HTPC.

They are glued to the board with double sided adhesive tape. Tape that is used to mount mirrors or similar with foam rubber between the two adhesive sides. No vibrations will make it to the board and the tape really is strong enough.

... before the Kabini boards arrive, MSI are saying they'll have a Mini-ITX board available with a 10w Intel Bay Trail CPU (Celeron J1800). I'd expect this to be the real competitor to Kabini, with a weaker GPU and stronger CPU, should be more than enough GPU for offloading 1080p though. Details...
