I'm planning on turning my old laptop into a HTPC. The mobo is roughly 27cm by 10cm so can I put it to a custom case?

Why bother? If you care about looks, you could put the whole laptop behind a false front... but mine just lives on the shelf with the other components.

I had thought of that but the screaming fan kicks in after 20-30 mins every time the lid is closed and gets very hot. tried replacing fan but the housing is shot.

"Screaming fan" - it's the middle-frequency-noise in that clip.
