Actually, it might not even fit at all. I never bothered checking the clearance. Enter the Evercool EC-HPS-810CP. This thing is tiny, and more importantly, very short. It's about as tall as the rear I/O and a standard DDR3 circuit board. Noise? Uh... It's a bit loud. However, I plan on downclocking the CPU a bit and overclocking the GPU. My logic is that, since I lived with a 2.4GHz dual-core, later 2.1GHz tri-core, K10 laptop, I don't need a particularly fast CPU. It was the godawful integrated 4250 that killed it. 40 shader cores. An A8-3850, the flagship Llano APU, would have been ten times faster per cycle. eek.gif So I have high hopes for Kaveri, lol.

That cooler is also available under the Silverstone brand as part of the Argon Series: http://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=418&area=de

What kind of temps do you get with this cooler without using any case fans?

It's not exactly the same, but it's pretty damn close!

Good question. Didn't think to check. I'll do stress tests once I get everything all together.

The important difference between my cooler and the Silverstone is how they mount. The Silverstone has push pins and is only compatible with LGA-115#. The Evercool uses a bracket and is compatible with Intel and AMD sockets. thumb.gif

Ah that's good to know, that makes the evercool one much more interesting. I don't really trust the push-pins, especially when the system will be moved a lot.

Has anyone got some experience with the Zalman CNPS2X? Reviews are sparse and not that thorough, I'd like to cool a 45W CPU with it. The thing that makes it so interesting to me is the low weight. 83g, that's extremely light.

Done! You can read the log here.

Hey guys just wondering why everyone hangs out for decent sfx psu's when there are so many other form factors? TFX, Flex atx etc all the 1U server PSU's...? I just brought this for my htpc. Hope it stays quiet enough. The htpc case only has about 40mm for height.
I got higher wattage than needed to hopefully keep that fan at bay :-)

The hadron uses a 1U PSU. But it's more "mainstream" I guess.

Wait... is that... a fully modular FlexATX PSU? Holy mother of god why didn't I know about this?

To my knowledge, the only reason is that Silverstone heavily rooted for that formfactor. They built cases that used it, they built PSUs that were available in retail that had the connectors consumers need. I guess the reason why they rooted for that was the similarity to ATX, the short length and the possible use of larger fans as opposed to 1U and FlexATX.
And then other manufacturers started adapting that as well, so now there are only cases for ATX, SFX or they include something proprietary.

If you want a bit of discussion about FlexATX PSUs, this thread may be interesting. Not sure if you already know about it.

It's only modular at the most technical level of the term. JonnyGuru did a review on it: Link

Hm, that's a bit disappointing. I thought it would have one plug for the ATX connectors and one for everything else. Apparently not. Also 190mm long frown.gif

Still, you can modify the cable harness without opening the casing, that's rather good and something you don't get on any other PSU of this form factor.
