Interesting idea!
I would like to house a hard drive and hub with the Ouya board in a small case as well.

When i get some time I'll have to take a look at mini and micro ATX cases.

I am thinking about another case for my ouya, too. The power-button-replacement is the first big problem. How did you solve it? You promised a guide! ;)

There is nothing to solve for the power button.
Most cases use a momentary switch just like Ouya does.
Solder wires where the switch is on the Ouya PCB and run them to the other switch. You could even leave the switch installed on the Ouya PCB if you want because you are wiring them in parallel.

I want to use my own Switch. The case I have in mind doesnt have a switch.

Iīve got somthing in mind like this one:

It has to have a LED to know the status. The Ouya got a seperate LED, so I have to compare it. I know how to solder... but I donīt have a clue about electics! :D So I need to know exactly what button I need... and what I have to solder to what! ;)

If the LED in the Button does not work... its no problem to replace the original LED with a new one that I put somewhere in my case... but the solution within the button looks way better

Hi there as I am currently waiting for a soldering iron to arrive I can't show you the correct method to doing this but I can show you what button I am using so you can get a rough idea
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/wv3r28m0a6ke70z/1-0B1zFbMp
I have added a couple of pics if the button with the cables connected
Ones I have a iron I will be soldering the cables to the underside of the ouyas motherboard connecting it to the pins of the original button and led this creates a easy and effective method of powering the device :)


Ps when I get the tools I will make a guide on how to do this :)
