Lol. I loved the bit on page 2 where Wolf was 'waffling' on about the BBQ fan grille :D

This. On a semi-fanless SFF unit, I recon an extra point off is warranted. There should be nothing but NCC, Panny and Rubycon in there. But Suscon?:crazy:

You've got four 30A rails for the GPUs to play with on the P1700 - A total of 120A - just a bit more than the minimum recommended. As long as you run one cable to each connector (and don't try to use...

Just nitpicking here, but I'm not a big fan of Apaq solid caps. I have known them to explode on motherboards a couple of times. They are probably not stressed enough on the modular PCB fir it to be a...
