    Default Need PSU for a itx atom/ion board (SFX size)

    OK, I got a deal on newegg with an itx board and case.
    The case comes with an Allied PSU, and I am not happy with that.
    I was looking for something like THIS Sparkle on e-bay. Would this work?
    Do I have to limit my search to SFX PSU's only, or would Micro atx fit also?

    SFX PSUs will only fit in that case.

    That Seasonic will not fit. The external fan makes it too tall (I have about 10mm between the top of the heat sink and the bottom of the PSU without the fan on the heatsink (which I am going to have to put on due to high temps), current one is 4.92" wide x 3.94" deep x 2.5").
    Right now I am running the one that came with the case, but really want to get something else.
    I see THIS FSP has the exact same deminsions as the stock one, and the mounting holes look the same, but it is a micro-ATA.
