Beware of the limitations in upgrading your system in terms of adding more HDDs or Optical Drives. Mini-itx cabinets tend to have less number of slots for these...


Thanks for info, not planning to upgrade. as mentioned it will be for general use.

just one question, for MB is it best possible i can buy, in term of onboard graphics ? what other options i have ?

also cabinet details mentions "Excellently cooled slim enclosure to support up to 65W CPU ", and cpu suggested is 95 W. any issues ?

how about i go with MD Athlon II X2 260 Regor 3.2GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM3 65




sorry more queries

1) if i put 95W cpu in CM Elite 100 cabinet , will it create any issues ?

2) do i need slim line optical drive for above cabinet? if yes can please someone suggest one
