Thanks. MSI and ASRock have announced mITX boards for FM2 but it appears they haven't been released yet (and who knows when that will happen). I don't want to use Atom or even the older FM1 AMD APUs because I'd like to play some Dolphin emulated Gamecube games as well.
For anyone else following, I gave up on the picoPSU and I'm just going to stick a 220-250W ITX PSU in there. Saves me the headache.
Everyone keeps asking why I don't just use a different case. The whole purpose of the build is to use an NES case (the more recent Nintendo consoles are much smaller and there is no chance I could squeeze what I want in there). If I weren't using the case I wouldn't be doing this at all (i don't need it, it's just for fun).
I'll update again when I get all the parts sorted. Until then I'll work on getting the controller adapters done.
