Shorten Accelero S1 Rev. 2 by a half centimeter?

Has anyone ever tried to shorten an Accelero S1 Rev. 2 by a half centimeter?

Example review: http://www.notebookreview.com/default.asp?newsID=3826 The m1330 I received is not very quiet (and is much louder than my previous self-build desktop system), but at least it is quieter than my...

Does anyone know where the Seasonic sleeved S12 PSUs with the startup fix are available for purchase online? The ones I've found only include 2 SATA power connectors in the description which I believe is the older version. I'm experiencing the startup problem on my Asus A8R32-MVP motherboard with my...
