    Public service announcement re: ASUS A8N-VM-CSM NF430

    After a lot of trial and error, I found that the Arctic cooling alpine 64 fits beautifully. I had a lot of trouble with finding a decent, quiet cooler because of the northbridge cooler! Sorry if you think this is a silly post.
    Not around too often!

    I think that if you ask them reeeeaaaally nicely, and they're not too busy, Scan will commandeer a board/heatsink out of stock to test compatibility...I know they've done this on occasion in the past, so it may be something to bear in mind

    ill bear it in mind unfortunately scan dont have the best selection of uATX cases, so i was possibly-maybe thinking of ordering from e*uyer. and can someone tell scan that even if a case is aluminium it can still go in the uATX category?

    i mean "Casebuy Black Micro ATX Case With 450W PSU" for 49.99 is a fantastic price. and knocks £10-20 off most places Qpack prices with a better psu.
