Hi all,

Here are some pics from my Mini-ITX build - spec:

Case: Antec ISK 100
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-H87N-WiFi
CPU i5 4670S (65W)
Cooler: Noctua NH-L9i
RAM: 8GB Corsair DDR3 @ 1600
Storage: Kingston 120GB (SSDNow) SSD / Hitachi 1TB HDD (7.2k / 32MB cache)

Lot of people complained about the 4-pin ATX cable length with the ISK 100 case, but I didn't encounter this issue (suspect they've included a longer cable in later production runs). It IS a tight-squeeze, though :)... but VERY pleased with the end result. Noctua fan is whisper quiet when system is idle and very quiet under load.

I dub this machine 'MELEE-ISLAND' :)

How many Watts does it pull when doing emulation?

What emulators are you using? I use PSX , Psx2, Dolphin,SNES & MAME. Are you using any of these?

Reason I ask , I want to make one of these soon. I just want to get a good idea of the amount of power the system will be using on these emulators.

The build looks good!

What does the back panel look like? Is it solid or vented as well?
