    Its the 40mm PSU fan that is the issue, not the big case fan.

    You can get an ATX extender cable, e.g.

    But I'd be wary of running a RAID off a pico-PSU.

    I just want to say thanks for this post. :thumbup:

    I only just saw this and I have just sent an email to Prashant. Hopefully I am not too late to get one, I ordered one from DessyTek last time around but my order was refunded a few days later.

    I am with you on this. I hope the selfish hoarders get stuck with their extras! :thumbdn:

    Yeah I just got through then but to a lass, she was quick and knew about the promo pricing, so yeah, 2 units ordered :thumbup: (one more for me, one for my mate).

    Now to sort out the PSU on my current one... :Paranoid:

    Thanks for the heads up CordlezToaster :thumbup:

    It took me about 20 minutes to get through to Prashant this morning (not that I waited specifically for him). He said he had a mountain of emails and left messages to go through.

    Just spoke to Prashant (no wait time) and placed an order for 2 units (1 for work, 1 for home). Very pleasant guy. I'm actually glad I went through him and not a random sales person - who knows how that sales experience would have been!

    *tips hat to Prashant*

    EDIT: Oh and another hat-tip to CordlezToaster for his quality post!

    250GB won't go far, and it will be taken out and replaced with a thumb drive.

    I need 4x 2TB drives.

    Definitely considering it, I have been meaning to upgrade my storage solution for a while now.
