We outfitted the MonCaso 301 with a Core 2 Duo system including a
Nexus 430W power supply, WD Green Power hard drive, and Asus Blu-ray
drive. We employed a Zalman CNPS7700-AlCu modified with a Nexus 120mm
fan to cool the CPU and a 80mm Nexus fan (connected to a Zalman FanMate)
was mounted on the side to provide extra cooling. Cabling was a bit
of a mess, but that's to be expected for these types of cases. A modular
power supply would be an asset.
Aside from cable management, the most daunting task for us was to
find a decent heatsink that would fit inside, due to the case's height
restriction. The Zalman heatsink fit with only a few millimeters
The power LED and VFD use a pleasant shade of blue.
The case's only real accessory is a Vista-compatible remote control.
If you opt for the full Moneual 301 system, you will also get the software
and manual for the MSI motherboard, a physical copy of Vista, and a
wireless keyboard/trackball with USB receiver, USB extension cable,
and 3 x AA batteries to power it.
