I didn't see a power cord included on Intel's site for that board, nor did I find any images of the inside of your machine. But I did see that unless that motherboard has an unusual rear panel arrangement and is installed upsidedown, any cooler you get will have to be 1U.
Unless you get a board with an integrated CPU/APU, you'll need a VERY low profile cooler like Scythe's Kozuti: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6835185167
If you'd prefer not to be restricted to 150 watts and an expensive power brick, this 250w unit is probably the quietest PSU that should fit in your machine, but may not fit because the fan is mounted on the outside. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6817339004
Yep, I was looking at either the Kozuti or the Arctic Cooling Freezer 11 LP
. The motherboard is mounted right side up mid-chassis with the hard drive under so CPU cooler space is indeed an issue.
As far as the 250W PSU you suggest goes, it won't fit because the power supply is almost butted against the side of the motherboard. (needs to be a real 1U supply, which means 40mm screamers, which pretty much necessitates a DC/DC converter and power brick)
Mini-Box sells the DH61AG board
and a compatible 19V power brick
, which is actually not much more expensive than 12V bricks they sell (and without the added cost of a Pico PSU). With the size of the chassis (4 litres: 22cm * 20cm * 9 cm IIRC), will I really be able to cram enough stuff in there to exceed 150W?
I guess I'm just a bit leery of the whole DH61AG thing because there must be a catch to paying $25
extra ($80 for a basic H61 ITX board
vs $105 for the DH61AG) for $40 worth of DC/DC conversion circuitry
Also, if more pics of the enclosure would be instructive, I should be able to provide them tomorrow after I visit my parents' house. (I've already dropped the box off there because I am moving out of my apartment in a week)
