    Man, that looks so cool! I love the little fin and I've got to say I think it is one of the best looking SFFs out there, plus it does have dual opterons...

    Heating isn't really as much of an issue with the Opteron compared with the Athlon XP. If I remember correctly they are around 40w.

    I agree that the fin looks silly. Almost terrible!

    Opterons are 89W (high powered ones)

    The aerial is 100% for WiFi - we have some shots coming soon

    Looking good, but I would have thought it would have included SATA ports rather than the larger, older PATA. Also will the 250W PSU be enough? if each of the Opterons dissipate 89W of heat, thats 178W just in byproducts of the system, doesn't leave a lot for the rest, or am I thinking of this wrong?

    Its got 2 SATA ports as well as 2 PATA. More versatility i suppose.

    If the PSU is of very high quality then 250w will be plenty.

    Cooling would be my worry - the air being dragged over them copper heatsinks would already be warm from the rest of the case & HDD's. Will it be enough?

    I don't think standard opterons will do so well in a SFF case. Maybe the low power EE or HE opterons would.
