    If thats the case, then since this is purely a LAN machine, then quiet is not an issue at all.
    Low profile means just that, the cooler is "low", as opposed to "high/tall" tower type coolers

    Re: Mini ITX build YAYYYYY

    New idea

    RAM - OCZ Platinum - £84
    CPU - Core i7 Low Power - £274
    Scan Stuff


    Total - £1224

    A little over budget but not too much, should be ok.

    Few questions for you guys
    where can i get an adaptor for the Zalman?
    Will the Noctua fit ok?

    I think that a slot loading DVD writer would be great for the system:

    I would also check the Today Only and Shop Offers webpages.

    Re: Mini ITX build YAYYYYY

    I did initially have slot but im trying not to get too far over the budget of £1200.

    Anyone any ideas on the fan fitting? Might just drop to a regular 120 to be safe

    Re: Mini ITX build YAYYYYY

    the opening is only 12cm isn't it?? not sure, but fitting a 14cm might increase fan noise, would probably be safer to put in a 12cm fan, and it of course should have a blue LED!

    Re: Mini ITX build YAYYYYY

    I would get a cheaper HD5850 1GB as £250 for an HD5850 1GB is a rip-off IMHO!! Dabs,Aria and CCL have them at a lower price usually.

    Re: Mini ITX build YAYYYYY

    As long as its in stock now as the one month deadline proves to be an issue with ATI cards and their insane lead times... looks like this is going to be split across quite a number of suppliers :/

    Which of the above would come best recomended?
    I have looked at Aria before but i dont think i have ever bought from the
    I had a look at CCL now and they look to have a good range
    I have a friend who used to work at Dabs and hes advised me to avoid them.

    Don't get the 140mm Noctua fan. I remember reading someone trying to install a 140mm Scythe fan, while it can mount inside the case, the size of the fan prevents you from installing the the drive cage above it.

    Re: Mini ITX build YAYYYYY

    You can mount the H50 vertically;





    It fits, just. With a 3.5" HDD in there you can't squeeze the fan in though. Might be able to get a slimline one in? Not sure;



    People over ar [H]ardforum are reporting that the 5850 will run with an i5/i7 (at stock) on the default PSU. It's a close call, but Silverstone have a 450W PSU for the SG05 coming out in April (might even be worth going for a 5770 til that comes out and then a 5870/whatever NVidia cooks up).

    Re: Mini ITX build YAYYYYY

    Sorry to barge in on your post but im doing something similar (allbeit a bit cheaper...)

    Im going for tge DFI and a SG06B case, im pondering over the cooler at the moment and im wondering if anyone knows if the H50 will fit?

    Given the PSU in the SB06 im thinking no, but doesnt hurt to ask!

    Re: Mini ITX build YAYYYYY

    Rad on the front, replacing the fan there... I was questioning it cos above is SG05 and ive got SG06 but i guess they are same dimensions.

    V intersting i was struggling on the CPU and this looks like it will fit the bill!

    Awesome

    Edit: How does the H50 perform without the fan though? I wont be using the 3.5" drive so i could maybe cut that off and fit a fan on it... Man so much to tinker with!

    I know you have the case and every thing but the new SG07 looks like it's the case you want.

    Thanks for the link though, and sorry to the OP for hijacking his thread!
