    i want to take my am1 out my elite and put it in a really small case and so far a case that caught my eye is an Inter-Tech 601, im sure i could better 50 odd quid, but this one has an external 60w which in theory should be enough, but with a 25w cpu + couple ssd's then im sure its be nearly 40w?, im not use to external power outside a laptop, just seems too close for comfort? im not interested in the athlon chip, so 25w be the max this board will see from one.
