    Fantastic price (in dollars anyway), sounds like a really good deal tbh. Not sure about 80mm tri-cools for noise and 65w seems a little low for some of the ITX systems that I would have planned but they would need a bigger cose like the Silverstone offering so... very nice for what it is

    I've just installed a zotac 9300 and e5200 in a cubit case I had laying around. With a 2.5" hard disc but no dvd drive yet it seems to be consuming 30-38w at the wall.

    I think if you are not too greedy in your choose of processor a good quality 65w power supply should be more than enough.

    Looks like quite a case. Good to know Antec are joining the mITX cause, with them, Silverstone and Lian Li building cases hopefully the big boys like Asus and Gigabyte will start taking notice and release some motherboards. The Zotac one i have is nice, but they've screwed a few things up with it. A bios update that kills boards, only 2 SATA ports, no case fan control and no wake from USB, far from perfect really...

    Re: News - Antec kicks off range of Mini-ITX chassis with ISK 300-65

    I'm interested!

    If the price ends up even a little less than the straight $/£ conversion, should be good. My biggest concern would be noise and heat. Maybe the 65w power supply is a hint about what expectations you should have on what you can get in it

    Having said that, presumably a 65w supply will be an external brick? If so, I think the 90-100w (ish) pico-psu bricks have a fan inside. If keeping it at the 65w level means no fan in the power supply, I'm onboard.

    I've been looking into a HTPC for some time, but it all still seems a fair bit from mainstream, especially at this size. Hopefully this is the start of things to come.

    Look at the Compucase 8k01. Cheaper, good case still, internal PSU and you CAN buy it in white.. (well you can in Finland and I have family there!)
