You could totally build a sleeper 2000s era eMachines computer with this, if you are cheap and don't want to buy a small case. :laugh:

The original SFX power supplies in those (like the 533MHz Celeron eMachines) only had 2 amps on the 12v rail. :eek:

Probably the best SFF power supply available, saddly it isn't modular.

Yeah, it's not a modular psu, but I can see it coming out real soon.. Silverstone likes to make "3" or more of everything.

That case is terrible, it's a rebranded APEX MI-100, has terrible cooling even for atom processors.

Pretty expensive too considering an SG05 is $20 more

$65 on newegg.

From a review:
Cons: Can get very hot. Try to place the hard drive in the front 3.5 bay so a 120mm fan can be placed on the side where the hard drive rails are. The fan snaps in place like it belongs which provides excellent cooling. I would recommend the Zalman Fan Mate 2 Controller (N82E16835118217) to help eliminate noise.
I like how the Element Q looks vs the APEX MI-100 :wtf:

I have a 120mm fan on the side, it's still pretty hot with only an atom!

It's a d945gclf board

Chip Temp: +42.0°C
CPU Temp: +63.0°C
Sys Temp: +52.0°C

It's pretty much idle as it's a file server but as you can see it's not good.
