  • Antec ISK 310

    I've been looking at the following:

    http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=49635

    I really like the look and size of this case it's pretty much what I want for a HTPC build but I'm a bit concerned by the 150W Power Supply. Being Antec, I'd trust it more than others from cheaper case manufacturers but would this be enough to run:

    Zotac A75 Mini-ITX wifi motherboard
    A8 3870K
    2x2gb 1600mhz memory
    Phenom 2 stock cooler
    Slimline Blu-Ray
    Possibly 2 SATA drives
    1x80mm case fan (the one that comes with it)

    I've seen videos of the case running just fine with a 2400S and a 6450 which presumably wouldn't be too far away from the A8 setup without dedicated graphics?

      would be very close on max load, maybe pull 130W, do you need a 3870k in a htpc?

        Don't need it no, but I have a good offer of the CPU, Motherboard, RAM and cooler for 125, seemed a good option. Have also been tempted by the Lenovo Q180 but this would give more power for less money albeit with no OS

          Thats a good offer, might as well get it from brokenfeet?

          judging from that review there it needs a fair bit of powwa, maybe look at getting a silverstone sugo but they are a bit bigger.

            That's who the offer is from I suspected it may be tight with that PSU but I may just risk it. I keep changing my mind though. The Lenovo is even smaller...
