  1. Yes they can fit but it doesnt look like a very capable build...might I ask what is your intended use for it?
  2. Building a 'net top' SFF?

    That Sunbeam PSU looks scary. Do you already own some of this stuff?
  3. AstroTC: Just a regular HTPC.

    WR2: No, I don't. On the Thermaltake site, it said the LANBOX accepted ATX PSII power supplies. I don't know what that is.
  4. ATX PSII just means it takes a normal sized PSU, i would steer clear of that sunbeam it looks scary.

    An Corsair 430CX actually has about twice as much power available where a modern system needs it and is much better than that sunbeam unit, it costs more but its less likely to kill a system.

  5. Your power requirements are going to be really low.
    And Im guessing a quite build is high on your list of important features?
    You'll want a known good PSU with a quiet signature.

    You could also go with a fanless mini-ITX power source like picoPSU-120 + 80W Adapter Power Kit

  6. I don't really mind that much noise.

    I'm not sure how to wire up a mini ITX PSU like that, so I don't think I'll go for that.

    I just want something that'll be relatively small and sufficient for my power needs.

    Besides the AC/DC power brick being on the outside of the case it's really no different.

    That Corsair 430CX hunter315 is a good choice. And after the rebate it's $25 final price is worth spending the extra over that Sunbeam PSU.
