Re: Decent replacement for UltraX Keyboard?

whatever the fuck you do, do NOT get the Rosewill RIKB-11001. bought two in a sale, and i'd prefer the oldest, <50% unreliable keyboard you could find to it. can't touch-type on it (well); the touch is terrible. there's no spacing between the number row and the F-row. trust me. you never think it wo...

If you're looking for a Socket A heatsink that doesn't need mounting holes I don't think the ThermalRight SLK 900a can be beaten.

How about this one? http://www.silentpcreview.com/article115-page1.html i'll look into that one... the other one looks like it would be too big for the case... when i have the money, i think i might look into a passive psu, too, as well as a 6200 with HDTV out (unfortunately all 6200s with HDTV out...

3-Prong HSF...

are there any decent 3 prong HSFs one would recommend for a SFF Athy XP system? i'm thinking of putting an Athy XP-M on a Soyo SY-K7VM333 v1.0 (microATX) i had laying around in a Aspire X-QPack . unfortunately it doesn't have the standard mounts of an ATX board... so i can't use my CNPS7000B-AlCu or...
