I'm just looking for ideas. It's cramped in there and the less stuff in it the better I can do cable management etc. Plus the less fan noise the better.

The 2.5mm/5.5mm barrel jack for the picoPSU is a panel mount jack. It's threaded with a panel nut, no screws needed. It fits into a 5/16" hole from behind and then you tighten the panel nut from the front. Only the picoPSU mini-DIN connector has the two screws, one on either side of the jack, to mount it like the ISK300-65's does. So, to mount it in that center hole, at least securely, the center hole can't be more than 5/16". 1/4" is too big. If you're not going to mount the internal jack then it doesn't matter, it can hang loosely through that hole though it's not as clean to do it that way.

I got a new 120w brick for sale that will work with the 300-65

Looking for a molex to slim sata adapter. The ODD needs a slimline power input.

I went ahead and pulled the plug and got it. Will throw up some pictures of it as I am ripping it apart and throwing it back together.

Now I am wondering if the Scythe will fit. I haven't put it in yet but I have seen in a few threads that it may not...Guess I will find out.

So is that a yes or no?

The Arctic Cooling Alpine 11r2 (64mm height) fits in mine. I'd say it's a yes.
