    Super CUBE computer Antec NSK1380 HELP!!

    I'll second the 4850, it is one i would consider for an upgrade. If the difference is noticeable it should not be by much. If you have the 5600 already use it. We worry about heat in these little cases but we dont see heat like the P4s put out any more. most cpus out there right now would be...

    Super CUBE computer Antec NSK1380 HELP!!

    That setup should be fine, a little warm but not a problem.I have almost the same setup in an old aria with the smaller ps, cpu temps are solid but just a touch on the warm side. good luck on the build.

    Where can i get a metal cylinder about 12'' in diameter?

    Can Aria's PSU support my PC parts?

    with one hard drive you should have no problem.with 2 performance would become a question. I would strongly recomend against 3,if it would power it heat would be a prob. I have one drive and an older card in mine and took out all the front headers and added a 80mm fan never seen cpu temps above 38.
