The Apevia power supply is junk. Try the Antec http://pcpartpicker.com/p/BkeG | Report abuse johnsonjohnson Homebuilt system Expert February 3, 2013 9:59:22 PM Hi. If he really must have a Mini ITX build, there's not much else to do. I recommend replacing that PSU though. The CX430 would be sufficient at a similar price: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-cx430 | Report abuse McLubbin February 3, 2013 11:35:13 PM Thank you. I couldn't seem to find a good one at that price, so I went with one with good reviews. Are the other aspects of this build good? Also, I was not aware there was a superbowl going on.. I am not a fan of the sport. | Report abuse Mousemonkey February 4, 2013 12:25:09 AM McLubbin said:Hellooo? Don't...
