I removed the fan in mine along with the PSU's side panel and I haven't had any issues with it. The PSU doesn't get all that hot either in this configuration.

Need a powerbrick, any suggestions?

I just got a 150w PicoPSU and while I rewire a 360 PSU for it I need a 3.5mm powerbrick in the meantime. Something that is 100w+ would be nice. Thanks

Intel: Celeron 430 35w Zotac NF610I-K-E I've got an older version of that board and it works great for what it is. The only problem I have with it is that it only has two SATA ports, that newer has a total of four. If I had found that board two weeks ago I would have used it for my WHS box. :) AMD: ...

Oh, for those who have worn COA stickers and they need to find out the product key I've used Winguggle to recover mine from a few Vista based Dell laptops (laptops always have the COA sticker on the worst possible place).

Last weekend I had to download a torrent off the Bay for a copy of XP MCE because my completely legal install CD for it is too scratched to install. If I use the disc I have I get nothing but install errors. At least now I have an ISO copy. I need to find a copy of XP Home too since my install CD fo...

You could just buy the board and then get the cable super cheap off ebay or monoprice and give it a shot. ;)

There's no reason it shouldn't work. Hopefully, you're only going to be using a 10' interface for HTPC work with that old TV. Anything else will be hard on the eyes and nothing like viewing on a monitor. Yeah, there are plenty of reasons why it wouldn't work. The main one is that these VGA to svide...

Any word on a version with DVI or HDMI? Gees, you'd think that in this day and age DVI would be a give in.

I'm actually running my Athlon 2 X4 in a modded G4 case. Not quite done modding it but so far I'm happy with it. Also working on a G4 cube but I'm waiting for the lower wattage AMD chips to start showing up. Got any pics? I've got a couple. http://img255.imageshack.us/img255/8532/img0546eo.th.jpg h...

I've got a KPC and as everyone knows it has a damn loud PSU. It's a 100w one with a 40mm fan. I snipped the wires to the fan and sealed them with some electrical tape and all is well. PSU runs just fine without the noisy fan and the system is damn near silent now. :)
