For a long time, I had an external IR receiver taped with a little bit of electrical tape, double-sided, to the top of my bedroom HTPC chassis, with a USB extension cable plugged into the back.
My new case has an internal IR receiver and it's really nice to not have that sitting on top.
If you had a case with a window, you could get a USB female-to-USB header adapter and mount it internally. I am not sure the window on the ITX-2 would be big enough.
YMMW, but you could always crack the internal sensor out of the external shell to mount internally or forego the external receiver altogether and get a purpose-built internal receiver.
