With the loud power supply, I decided I would not put it back in. But, there is little room left in between the PSU and Optical/HDD/Floppy tray. My original plan of using the OCZ PowerStream 420 was out of the question. The standard size Scythe Kamarariki II 550W
[M] reviewed last year with 38.4 dBA idle and maximum level of 43.8 dBA (at 3”) should fit.
Installation is a challenge with this case. Second time seems not as bad, but not that easy neither. There is little or no room left between the Optical Drive and memory slot; PATA and SATA cable will find a very tight fit coming out to the mainboard.
1) Remove the HD/Optical tray
2) Install the mainboard without memory
3) Install the PATA or SATA cable and power cable before the tray is put back in.
4) Connect all the necessary wirings and cables
5) Last is to install memory
Location of the HDD is not ideal. Although bottom tray is vented, I decide to install a HDD cooling fan which I purchased 5 or 6 years ago. But, there is no room to use the mounting screws in this setup. Surprisingly, the slide mount of the tray allows room for the cooler without the use of mounting screws. Photos below self-explain the installation process.
The cooler uses two 50mm fans
The HDD cooler is a perfect fit.
The two 50mm running at 12volt were pretty loud; I wired them to 7-volt.
