    Hi,

    Currently I have a Silverstone mAtx form factor case. The way the case is designed a standard PSU fits above the CPU cooler on rails leaving barely any room form the cpu to breathe. Wonder is it possible to fit a SFX psu in there and raise the height to odd 20 mm extra space above the cpu cooler? Anyone ever do this? Is it possible?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Thanks. I saw that adapter while searching. Thing is not sure the adapter will be able to support the weight of the psu. Would have to mod some sort of support or give it legs so it stands up on its own over the railing. These HTPC cases not designed for ventilating your components. Thanks.
