    Well frankly you won't really need a AP with such a small case... (AP is meant to direct air, but given how small the case is...)

    True, but at 18 bucks, it's almost half the SRP.

    Good choice of SSD Did you go with the H67 or H61 in the end?

    I went with Zotac's H67 B3 rev. Zotac's H61 didnt have SATAIII. Other H67 boards (non-Zotac), while tempting and much cheaper, didn't have the full functionality of Zotac's

    Now looking to buy a particular low profile CPU cooler. But bros, if you have any other LPs you want to sell, please PM me. Thanks.

    Advice Needed!

    Bros, I need some advice regarding this:



    Notice the motherboard mounts on this case. I'm afraid of the motherboard warping over time in the middle due to CPU/HSF weight; because as far as I can see, there is no mount or support in the middle.

    Would that really be a problem? And is anything I can put in place to provide that backing - say a backplate to buy? Or something more DIY - e.g. foam?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    The Default Intel HSF is not heavy enough to warp your mobo

    But if u really afraid, use Folded ESD Bag, as forms & other stuff has static.

    The really tightly mounted HSFs can exert enough pressure to cause some mobo warping, and it's especially noticeable in the ITX form factor, but it's not anything to be super worried about - usually not enough to cause contact with the mobo tray.

    Actually, this can be a really bad idea - the point of ESD bags is to be somewhat conductive, so placing a powered up board (or even an unpowered one with charged capacitors) on an ESD bag can short out components. Newer bags are designed to prevent this while still dissipating static, but I wouldn't take the risk - I've seen microcontroller boards irreparably fried this way.

    It shouldn't be a worry. If your cooler comes with a back plate the backplate usually is nonelectrically attached to the socket backplate, which means that the cooler backplate will hit the case first, if it does hit the case.
    It is better to remain silent and be taken as a fool, than to speak and prove your ignorance beyond doubt.
