I just ordered this case off amazon and I'm excited to build the rig soon. I was wondering if it could be possible to put an Intel G3258 chip in this and do a small overclock say about 4GHz. Would the 90W PSU that comes with the case be able to handle the minor overclock or would I be better off just getting a G3240. The rig is only intended for web browsing, microsoft office, 1080p HD video watching.

I'll also be using
Asus h81i-plus, 2 X 4gb 1600mhz ram, Crucial mx100 256gb ssd

I know I don't really need to overclock the G3258 for the purposes of the rig but it's always nice to know you are getting value for money, and it's only $9 more than the g3240 or $13 more than the G3220 where I live.

Just wanted to update this thread, I did indeed get the Asus H81-I plus, and after updating the bios to version 2105 I was able to get a 4ghz overclock without changing the voltage. It seems the 90w psu included in the Antec ISK 110 can run an overclocked G3258 at 4GHz. Hopefully this is useful to anyone with a similar build in mind!

Just so I can be sure. With a picoPSU, you can plug it in directly, but you just have to make the hole in the case a little bigger? I'm thinking about using this for a build, but want to be sure.

Yes he could but that is the only place where this case exchanges air. Changing it would increase his temps significantly, especially at load.

The problem is the hole(square) goes to a board mounted power jack on the internal DC-DC supply. It's not that the hole would need to be bigger, but certainly different. Why not just use the supply and brick it comes with?

Using a PSU calculator, it say that I need a minimum of of 121, but recommend 171 watt, so I was asking about the picoPSU since I will probably have to change it with one that will provide more power

So does that mean if I make the opening bigger, I can just plug in a picoPSU?

Hello. Yes, I took out the stock PSU board from the case, including the connector with the pin. This leaves a square hole.

If you take a file to the square hole and widen it a bit, you can lodge the plastic part from the adapter in there and it holds very well. Don't take off too much at a time, and test as you go.

Then I just plugged the picoPSU into the motherboard.

So you took out the PSU from the case itself? What I had in mind was to change the power brick, take the brick from the picoPSU and plug it directly into case, would that work?

Yes, I removed the PSU. I'm not sure why you want to change just the power brick. The PSU inside the case is an 80W board. Take a look at it when you open it up and you should see an 80W marking on it. Using a higher watt power brick doesn't seem like it will do anything since the included brick is 90W.

Sorry if I haven't understood what you want to do, but I don't see a reason to replace the brick without also replacing the board in the case.

Yeah, I just realized that. Is it hard to change the PSU?
