Building a micro gaming cube - Page 3

post #21 of 30
Hello,

What would you suggest as a good 939 board? Are there any that would fit that? I might want to go mini cube for the computer I'm building for my friend. It's gonna have 2gb ram, 7800gt, and a 3700+ san diego. Any opinions?

That looks GREAT.. and that's why I'm asking

Hi,

I would recommend the Biostar Tforce6100-939

I haven't bought it yet but I have all plans to. Tons of people recommend it and I've seen one guy who had his opteron at 2.9 Ghz on it. Sounds like a winner to me

How's that case? I was thinking about using it for a small server project. Everything fit well? Other impressions?

The case? Well... overall it feels rather cheap actually. The whole thing weighs about 5 pounds and most edges are not rounded but aluminum doesn't cut your hands like steel. Also, good luck finding a better power supply. You can't fit anything longer than 5.25 inches in there without hitting the cd rom drive (the included power supply is 420 watt with dual rails though 12V1 = 14A 12V2 = 16A so you probably will be find with just that). Also if your video card is in the first slot, you can't have anything on the back of it, otherwise you won't be able to slide the motherboard try in.

Dang...I was looking for a small case, since I don't have a ton of room on my floor and that looked just right. I had a feeling the psu would be weak, and I read that the construction was iffy, but I was hoping that it was just people being picky. Oh well, guess I will have to look elsewhere. I heard shuttle cases are nice, but I would prefer to put all the hardware together myself.

What OS are you planning to use?

Hey the psu is not that bad. What are you putting in there? I have all the hardware in my sig plus a fan controller and and 4 fans and idle is 12.4V and load is 12.1V. Not bad at all. I actually really like this psu. As long as you don't install a video card you can prettymuch gurantee that the psu is powerfull enough.

Planning? I'm using XP.

Well I too have the same case which I picked up in Shanghai in Jan as they are not available in Australia.

I have managed to get a full ATX PSU in it ENERMAX NOISETAKER 495W. Yes it takes a little working out of the cabling from the PSU to not obstruct the other drive connectors but can be done.

Hey! Did you actually put the psu in yet? How did it work out? I've been searching all over for a psu that's not longer than 140mm but I thought one wasn't made. This could really come in handy if I ever have to upgrade.

EDIT: Okay I looked up the specs of your psu and that's 140mm deep too! So how did it fit? Anything extreme need to be done?

EDITII: And what do you think of this psu? It's new on newegg today.
