Re: Lian-Li PC-Q11 Mini-ITX Configuration Advice?

It just hit me then, antec -being a favorite among many forum readers- should bring a small chaises close to the size of the nsk1380 that can house at least 4 soft mounted hard...

Some CPUs are cooler/hotter than others! The solo is a well vented case, but to be sure i'd sat go for a arctic cooling freezer 7 pro i used it in a solo with a C2Quad 950 its silent, cheap and effective!

Thanks for the Tip, I did get my NSK1480 from vally seek. amazing case, fits my bill just right, replaced the tricools with scythe Kama-flex 80's
BUT the power supply needs the fan swab, so i was wondering what kind of fan size did the power supply use and what size did you use?

Hi Just wanted to say that I was disappointed with the new P183, in regard for the top mounted fan. I owned many Antec cases including a solo, P182, and currently a mini P180. And I personally felt what Mike chin mentioned in his review of the mini p180: it simply has a superior cooling compared to ...

Does anyone know what happened to the NSK1480? It seems to have come to market very briefly and then disappeared.
newegg has deactivated it
Most other shops are showing it as "out of stock"
has it been canceled?

Well I have a retail Tri-Cool, and it refuses to start on much less than 12V, no matter what position the little switch is in. I don't know if all Tri-Cools act this way, but it stops me from using the things. :( I tryed 2 samples of retail Tricools -sleeve type- and they work down to around 8 volt...

why do you think your mosfets need extra cooling? is the board unstable? Just to be sure.. as i'll be using the board with an overclocked Quad in a case with slow fans, and since i've upgraded the cooling for most other parts of the board and my IR thermometer is telling me that -when prime testing...

Actually: I'm thinking that i could cut the extra cables and only keep the ones that are going to be used, i'd like to know the clearance between the ODD and the power supply would allow the wiring to pass Down to the MB?

oh and both my Drives will Have Sata connection!

Hi Erssa

I Have a spare seasonic S12 430 PSU and plan to use it with the NSK3400 when it becomes available.

I was wondering if there is enough space for 2 optical drives + PSU+ PSU Cables to Fit in the upper compartment?

Thanks
