perfect case for easy transportation

Do I need this power supply to be 135 watts with the additional brick? Or will the 65W brick that it comes with be plenty?
I am planning to use the AMD A6-3500 Llano 2.1GHz (2.4GHz Max Turbo) Socket FM1 65W Triple-Core
Here is my wishlist for this project...
Now I know the stock cpu cooler is going to be loud..... what cooler fits this correctly.
I got the Scythe SCSK-1100 100mm on my other rig and it's silent.
Oh and the ASRock A75M-ITX FM1 mother board do you know if the stock fan can be turned down in the bios?

on a review made by the guys at silentpcreview.com,
they said that:

So were talking about 65mm here max for a APU Cooler....
in this case, happy shopping
[CPU Cooler] Scythe SCKZT-1000 TDP:65W Fan:80mm Height:40mm ($40 + $0)
[CPU Cooler] Thermaltake MeORB TDP:65W Fan:92mm Height:47mm ($36 + $0)
[CPU Cooler] Scythe SCBSK-1000 TDP:73W Fan:120mm Height:58mm ($38 + $10)
[CPU Cooler] Scythe SCBSK-2100 TDP:130W Fan:120mm Height:58mm ($50 + $0)

and here's proof that even the Scythe SCBSK-1000
will fit just fine in the ANTEC ISK300 --> http://imgur.com/a/EuaVd#0
so, i probably wouldnt go for a Scythe SCBSK-1100....
64mm high seems too much,,,
also note that the guy removed the fan cage on the side.
but that depends on your mobo's cpu socket orientation...
but who cares!!
once u got a Big Shuriken in there,
you wont need anything else!!
heck, remove the side fan cage anyways!!
dont need it!!
get a new silent 120mm fan and stick it under the Optical Drive tray using tie wraps or something
and make it shoot air directly on the PSU!
well, maybe a 120mm fan wont fit or knock on the ram sticks but still,
you get the idea!!
ANTEC ISK300-65 FTW!!

Looking at the this small case an idea springs to mind, you could get or fashion a VESA bracket for it - then you could do something similar to the Antec ISK 110
Anyone tried it?
RE: ANTEC ISK300-65's hidden PSU Spec - eskro - 2012-04-04 07:21
dunno but yeah,
the ISK300-65 & the ISK-110 are my fav HTPC case at the moment.
wish i had one of them,
RE: ANTEC ISK300-65's hidden PSU Spec - Castrol - 2012-04-04 07:34
I like the idea of the ISK 110 but the CPU cooler size leads me to believe that an A6 3500 build would not work in it.
I am sure you have seen this link, it is the ISK 100 review
Note the comments - The case allows a maximum CPU cooler height of only 40 mm, forcing us to use an Intel stock cooler with the fan removed (35 mm tall).
I don't think there is an AMD cooler out there with a profile that low
The other thing is you sacrifice an ODD - but that is not deal breaker I guess
RE: ANTEC ISK300-65's hidden PSU Spec - eskro - 2012-04-04 07:51
but the ISK 100 has a 100mm fan,
that alone can cool your CPU....
but the ISK 110 version doesnt have a 100mm FAn,
and its a bit wider too so,
stock A6-3500 cooler fits in it.
even a SCYTHE KOZUTI 40mm
RE: ANTEC ISK300-65's hidden PSU Spec - Castrol - 2012-04-04 07:57
Right - Ok then, it may be back on the table. Thanks for this, I will hunt for a review of the ISK 110.
The only other ITX case I like (and yes the stock PSU is near quiet) is the In-Win bm639
It will also fit almost anywhere - in fact I believe that this case is used by HP for some of their factory ITX builds.
