    I am fully aware of how weak Atom is.

    What benchmarks ? I didn't build it to run benchmarks though.

    I also am building an ITX rig, using a case that I saw in your photo's on page 1: The Anwyn Mi-100. It'll have an e5200 cpu (both already ordered), though im a little worried that the stock half-height cooler wont fit due to the psu's position.
    I have found a shorter cooler though if needed.

    Can you please give me a better idea of the distance between the case bottom and psu? and does the half-height intel cooler fit?

    The new Intel low profile cooler that comes with 45nm will fit fine. Don't worry about it, it will be pretty tight fit though.

    thanks. thats much more re-assuring.
    I emailed Anwyns customer service but they were unable to give me any schematic diagrams.

    I also looked at a Thermlatake 5.25" bay psu that could be used INSTEAD of the psu that comes with it. allowing me to fit in a fullsize cooler even aswell as providing more power.
    I could OC the thing pretty well like that i reckon :D

    The PSU has a fan on bottom, so it will be quite good since hot air from CPU heatsink will be sucked out of the case by PSU. The case has no other fans available unless you mod it, so I don't think replacing the PSU is a visible idea.
     
    morpha says thanks.

    thanks for the warning.

    handy... if it doesnt fit for any reason I could probably take the fan off the cpu cooler and have just the one fan... That would make it quieter aswell.

    Id ask more questions but If I wait 3-4 days ill have the case anyway. :p
    thanks again.
