RS482 needs a home

Recommended Posts

Hi, I just got one of these boards and i'm trying to find a suitable case for it. I can easily put it in an atx case, but that defeats the purpose of having a matx board. I want something thats easy to carry to my mates for lan. Been looking at the Silverstone Sugo or Antec Aria.

If you need more room, or have a bigger PSU, go with the Ultra MicroFly - it's almost identical to the Q-Pack, just 1" longer. You're able to put in regular sized PSU in it.

Hi never heard of the Ultra MicroFly, do they sell them in the UK and have you any pics ? Also hope to put a Pioneer DVR111 in it instead of two optical drives. Whats the chance of cooling with an Arctic Freezer 64 Pro or a Zalman 7000, guessing little to none, I do have the AMD heatpipe heatsinks if i have to use one of them.

Not sure if they sell them in the UK, but a quick Google should find you ALL the pics you need. Big differences between it and the Q-Pack are the 1" extra length previously noted; side panels being in three piece via the one piece Q-Pack; one temp probe vice two in the Q-Pack; and minor internal structural differences.

 

Don't think a FreezePro would fit in there, but I do have a Zalman 7000 cooling my X2 ATM. :) I think you could even fit the 7700 in there. :eek:

 

One bit of advice, though. I purchased the version with the clear side panels. While looking cool, it hinders airflow so that it can only come thru the limited vents underneath the front carrying handle. I replace the two side acrylic panels with mesh, and dropped my temps 5-7deg C., at least. The non-clear side version of the case has vent holes along the side. You'll need some good cooling with this case, and unfortunately, the clear side panels don't cut it.

I've worked with a couple of these cases, and no way that AC Freezer would fit, way too tall. You really have to be able to use the mobo tray to get the board in and out and all. The Zalman is shorter than the TT HSF that got stuffed into the one. It just barely had enough clearence. Any of the Zalman 7000 series units or one of their low profile HTPC heatpipe ones would work.

Asipre Q-Pack (would be your best bet)

w/ this psu

 

its a tight fit, but works... other psu are too large (ocz mod stream, etc)

 

I have a couple of friends w/ that case and PSU and decent AMD 6800GS/7600GT rigs.

I use mine in an Aspire Qpack also

 

I use a Skyhawk modular psu

 

any smaller modular psu would be a good choice (like the Corsair 520w or 620w modular)
