[Build Log] Project Kaveri ITX - Page 13

post #121 of 146
I have two quick question's about this. I see that the first hdd mounts to the front but I can't seem to find the second mount. Also by using the msata ssd does that remove the wifi/bluetooth?

If you buy a thin mini itx (note that not all thin mobos come with a standard i/o shield) you will have one for the msata ssd and one for the wifi.
Itx boards only come with one and I think not in all of them you can use a msata drive. I think the asrock a88 itx lets you , but not all of them will work, you would have to investigate.

So it looks like it just has the single mSATA slot. Is that where the wifi card goes or is that completely integrated into the motherboard?

yep it only has one, you would have to remove the wifi card to be able to install a drive.

Very nice build. I have been meaning to build something slim like this for some time now but wasn't sure if I could.

I have an a10-5800k that a friend gave me and it is just sitting in my closet collecting dust. Didn't think that type of PSU would be enough to power it. I also just ordered the Asrock mobo and holding out on a deal for a mSata deal. I will mainly use this as HTPC and won't be playing any games at all.

So by going with the Samuel 17 and a slim 120mm fan would you still need to do mods to the case to fit the fan?

Yes I believe you would have to. For reference, the Scythe Kozuti stands 40mm tall from sitting on the chip. Then there is my 15mm thick Phobya 120mm fan. That left me with around 2-3mm of space between the heatsink+fan and the top cover of this case. The Sam17 stands taller then the Kozuti by 5mm, so you would have to use a slim scythe fan that is 10mm thick.

the a10 5800k is 100w (tdp), eventhough kaveri 7850 is 95w, it averages on the 70's
so you might need a better fan to cool the 5800k. Don't know if the slim scythe has
a good static pressure.

I have the same build but could not keep temps down with the lid on to game at 1080p. Any tips? I didn't have a 40mm fan though. Just a second 100mm fan pulling air from the cpu.

I couldn't really see any other way to effectively cool the chip without cutting a hole in the top lid. You need that influx of cold air and get the hot air exhausted out the side vents.

also this chassis is recommended for cpus 65W or less, so no way that
a 95 w is get cool without some kind of mod
