I was thinking about getting an APEX MI-100 case, but I have a few questions:
1. Would this case's PSU work off this config:
CPU: Intel Core i3-530
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6670
RAM: 2x2GB DDR3-1333
HDD: Hitachi 250GB 7200RPM
SSD: Intel X25-M Mainstream 80GB
Motherboard: Zotac H55ITX-C-E
2. Would I need an additional case fan with the config above/would it get too hot without a fan?
Thanks in advance.

Hello B&G;

The XFX website is saying a 400W PSU for that HD 6670 and that case has a 250W PSU.
Also, looks like it needs a true single slot graphics card and the HD 6670 look oversized - even the narrow ones.

1. No. You couldn't figure that out from my first post?
2. GPU cooling might not be fixable. "the cooling fan is right against a solid blank case wall"
And there is no place to mount a fan in that case.

Actually, what might be the minimum of wattage I might need for the 6670, and what is the minimum aperage I'll need on the +12V rail? Also, would my build bottleneck with this setup and also work?:

CPU: Core i3-530
Mobo: ZOTAC H55ITX-C-E
RAM: Patriot 2x2GB DDR3-1333
SSD: Intel X25-M Mainstream 80GB
HDD: Hitachi 250GB 7200rpm
Case and PSU: Rosewill R363-M-BK with 400W PSU
GPU: SAPPHIRE 100326DDR3L HD 6670 1GB
