It looked so promising until I saw the built-in PSU...I'm just hoping with only a small dremel job, a normal psu can be placed there instead.

I thought Thermaltake may have brought one of their cases to the silverstone sugo party :( shame...

That's not a standard form factor PSU, so I doubt you'll be able to swap it out for an ATX unit.
That looks like SFX or something like that, so unless you want half a PSU sticking out the front of your case...
The unit they supply is 180W though, so should be more than plenty for that case, especially as it only takes half height expansion cards...

I quiet like this little bugger. There are not many mini ITX Low Profile cases with 2 expansion slots out there: inWin BM series, InWin Wavy, Foxconn RS-224. I hope that PSU "in front of" the MB won't interfere with longer LP cards :D :D. Sapphire says 7750 LP is 17cm long (dunno about Zotac GTX 650 LP- if they release it). That's exactly as the miniITX board's length, so it should finish by the end of the board. Because on the third picture, there seems to be not much space after the board's edge. And the cables are not even seen- photoshoped removed or whatever for advertising purposes.

The SD101 chassis is designed with the purpose of a smaller media type rig. all in all it is half height which means it negates anything that would normally use higher amperage.

This thing is designed to fly high with soem nice airflow in a mini system without the need to source a PSU.

simply plug in and ready to rock n roll :cool:

Does such a system need such airflow?

Can't help but think Thermaltake have missed a trick here.

From the product's specifications:
"VGA length limitation: 172mm"

Did you ever thought that some people actually like, and want, their computer to be quiet? Which tends to be difficult if they can't exchange the loud built-in, non-standard, often non-replaceable PSU.

SFX form factor? Good.
TFX form factor? Great.
Mini-1U/Flex-ATX form factor? Not so good
Non-standard form factor? No way.

Have you heard the PSU?

I personally have a minecraft server presently deployed in this chassis and I am hard pressed to hear a peep from it unless my head is right on top of it ;)

This is a totally non standard PSU.

This case is a rebadged InWin BM639 which has been around a few years.

I have one of these myself and the InWin PSU (which claims to be a FlexATX, but no other Flex PSU will fit!!) was terrible, I had to dump the PSU and use a PicoPSU in its place. Not only was the PSU very noisy, but got very hot running a basic non gaming PC
