Aerocool Qx2000 case

Ok so I've run into a minor issue, well not so minor it appears, but I am looking for a CPU with a depth of NO MORE than 140 MM and need at least 500 to 550 Watt Powersupply and it can be more if necessary.

Here is the case I have:

(Aerocool QX-2000)

I am also running the following in the system:

120 MM fan, in the case



Intel DH67BLB3 Socket LGA1155 Desktop Board - Micro ATX, Socket H2 (LGA1155), Intel H67 Express, DDR3 1333MHz, RAID, SATA 6.0 Gb/s, 1 x PCI Express x16, DVI-I + HDMI, Gigabit LAN, USB 3.0

Intel BX80623E31230 Xeon E3-1230 Processor - 4 Core, 3.20GHz, LGA 1155, 8MB Cache, 64-Bit, 80W, HyperThreading

LG GH24NS90 Internal SATA 24x Super-Mul DVD Rewriter - 24x, 2 MB, SATA, Super-Multi, Black

Silenx IXP5211 iXtrema Pro Fan - 80mm x 15mm, 11dBA, 18CFM

32GB (4x 8GB) PC3-10600 10666 1333MHz DDR3 1333 DRAM DIMM 240-Pin RAM Desktop Memory Dual Channel KIT 9-9-9-25

I might also install 2 more fans in the case just to help keep the air flowing perfectly. I will also be installing a second NIC card, this is for traffic monitoring and creating a sensor.

Any help/suggestions would be greatful! I have also sent an email to Aerocool but I'm not sure what to expect from them.

  1. Thanks Z1nonly but those are heat syncs that you linked not power supplies.
  2. I wondered why you were "looking for a CPU with a depth of NO MORE than 140 MM".

    I thought "CPU" meant CPU cooler.

    I will look at PSU's.
  3. that was a mistype on my part! Yes it should be a PSU not a CPU, must have been thinking elsewhere.

    I did get one recommendation from Aerocool with a few potential modding options which were nice. Just for those who want to know here is what they had to say:

    The PSU you will be looking at is ATX PSU but with depth recommended at 140mm or
    less which is about 5.51".
    Here is an example:

    However, it all depends how many harddrive you will be installing and there are
    way to work around so you can install a standard full size PSU that has the
    depth of about 5.9" and higher.

    They also provided about 7 to 8 pictures of modding options which I may try out as I ahve 2 hard drives, 1 SSD and one Standard.

    Thanks again for the help!
