A minix 780G mini-ITX motherboard in hybrid crossfire with a HD2400, that is unfortunatly not passive. I just had the videocard laying around but for the performance increase i'm not quite sure if i'd go through the trouble of making another hybrid crossfire build if i had to start from scratch. Still it helps for some older games. In fact, this system is made with using spare parts in mind.
Two biggest problems with this build is the power supply and the 120mm fan. Components needed at least 150W to be on the safe side, and no power brick exist with the right plug. Had to do it myself with instructions provided by Aris here
. 120mm fans were too tall, the only slimmer 120mm fan available is the YateLoon D12SM-12C and D12SL-12C. Ordered the medium speed one thinking when i'll slow down its speed with the little thing that comes with noctua fans, it'll be just right, but unfortunately it didn't start at all. The YateLoon D12SM-12C is not silent right now so i'm waiting for the D12SL-12C that's on the way, should be here next week. Also, even at 20mm thick, the YateLoon still didn't fit well enough, had to grate away some of the frame. I haven't put a slim CD in yet, but that will also need more grating of the fan frame to fit in. Also i had to do some chasis modding to mount the fan, had to cut through the steel sheet and that was not easy either, as you can see in the pick, i've scratched the piano black finish and the hole was slightly too large, a cosmetic failure.
