your good waver123!!

your system rocks!!

you'll never stress your hardware like Prime95 + Furmark do anyways!!

idle at ~22w is consistent with pugetssytems reports!

and ~32w is playing 1080P?

thanks alot bro!

Bugger it, I think I'll go the ISK110 with those figures Big Grin
It's readily available, cheaper, and I don't want a CD/DVD/Bluray drive anyway.

Yes it was 1080p, for me the 90W of the isk100 is plenty enough juice for me, I don't see how I'll even get close to the power consumption I see with prime.

I actually got my shruken 2 today.....I took it out, take a look at my current asrock mb in the isk100 and am not sure how the heck I'm going to fit this thing into the case, this hs is freaking huge compare to the amd stock hs, the top is so wide I'm not sure if it's enough clearance over my ddr3 stick.

One thing I hate about the isk100 besides the cramp space is the alignment of the board with respect to the backplate, it's off a little so the ports are not quite aligned no matter what I do to try to adjust it, some other ppl have complain about this too in review not sure if it's luck of the draw.

XBMC + ISK110 FTW!!!

i emailed ANTEC support
and asked them if the ISK110 has a MD-90 power converter.
so answer is YES, the ISK110 truly has a 90W PSU.
well, if ANTEC support said correct of course..

as we know, the prior version ISK100 had the MD-80 power converter.
so even tho they supplied it with a 90W power brick,
you'd still have to think as if you had an 80W PSU.

well Houston we've a problem.
Received my shrukein 2, was gonna see if it fits at all with the ISK100.

After installing the mounting bracket, the underside HD don't fit anymore Sad (see the thing don't sit flush with the bottom plate)

without the fan it's still slightly higher than would fit

Oh well....waiting for my ISK300-65 to arrive Smile

Holy jesus christ. I had no idea that was how big the 'Big Shuriken 2" was.
That's roughly the same size as the mobo, isn't it?

I'll think twice before buying one.

Yes it's freaking big, very quality built though, great cooler if it fits in your case.
I wonder if the shuriken rev B would fit better, it uses push-pin and don't need a custom backplate I think.

Shuriken Rev B is 6mm taller than the Shuriken 2 so I'll have to see what clearance I have, but the stock heatsync might be fine anyway.

Yes after I tune down the fan in the bios, the fan noise is not too bad, for xbmc the cpu is hardly sweating.

not sure anymore that the Big Shuriken 2 will fit in the ISK110 case... sadly...

pugetsystems.com uses the ISK110 with the stock i3 cooler which is 40mm ....

see here --> http://www.pugetsystems.com/nav/echo/I_I...tomize.php

now we know that the ISK100 is 70mm wide and the ISK110 is 78.6mm wide.

and the ISK110 case cover itself is convex allows 5mm more clearance for the cooler.

so compared to the ISK100,
the ISK110 allows you to use a max cooler of 53.6mm i say....

so if u go FanLess with the Scythe Big Shuriken, your at 46mm for just the HeatSink...
and im not super sure its a good way to go Tongue

then if not, well, this will %110 work
