I have got my antec 300-65 case and am loving the look of the case. It's not that big as i thought

@Beer40oz:
What software did you use to monitor temps and fan speeds?

I built mine exactly the same way as yours, and placed mine in a Multimedia-closet.

I want to compare it to yours.

The Asrock A75 M-ITX actually comes with its own "Extreme Tuner" monitoring tool which provides temps for CPU and Mobo, and allows you to adjust the fan speeds manually (though whatever you do here resets once you reboot).

I haven't compared how it performs to other tools. I do recall once comparing two popular tools on a laptop I had, and one was consistently 10 degrees higher than the other. Weird.

From my workexperience (building all sorts of servers/desktop-pc's/mini-desktops etc.) I can confirm that different programs give different readings.
That's why I really am interested in which program beer40oz uses to monitor these values...

If you have another pc, copy the w7 installation dvd to the local hardddrive, put in a usb stick, and use winsetupfromusb link to create a bootable w7 usb installation.

That I am not sure..... you can try stock.... but you may just need a 90w brick..... because under stress tests it never goe beyond 90 w.....
so just get yourself a 90w brick and you should be fine.

Thanks beer. Do you have a link for a fan less brick link. I need one for uk or from ebay that ship to uk. Do you think just to be safe i should go for a 135watts that way i dont have to buy again if it goes over 90watts
