300 watts is all you need
An included 300 watt power supply will power just about anything you can throw at this case.
Inside the case there is plenty of room for an ITX board with a moderately slim heatsink/fan as well as room to shove excess cabling out of the way.
Here we can see all the parts outside of the case. Underneath the CDROM tray there is a bracket for mounting a 2.5" HDD, not to mention a clip-on bracket beneath that for a full on 3.5" drive, too.
One thing I'm happy to see is the inclusion of a dust filter on the 120mm intake fan. There should be a law making sure that every case has these; they will ensure your components last longer and your case stays relatively dust free inside.
Fitting the ITX board and HSF from Scythe, it seems like there is a lot of room to spare, but that will soon change.
Because we have room for two HDDs, I've decided to use the G.Skill 64GB SSD as the main system drive for this build and the 1TB Western Digital as the data drive.
With the SSD fitted it starts to get a little cramped in here.
With the 1TB HDD in place the inside of the case looks less than tidy.
Once all of the equipment is inside the case, it really does resemble the tardis. I would have never have guessed I could fit it all in! The 120mm fan mounted up front is going to be very useful at keeping this baby cool as the AMD 780 chipset will get toasty when it's running at full steam.
