The machine I'm putting this into is a HTPC. This turns out to be an ideal marriage, to be quite honest. HTPC machines, as a rule, tend to get pretty hot. They are usually installed alongside your stereo system and left on for many hours at a time. So, in order to relieve that heat, this PSU is ideal.
The second big plus this PSU brings to the picture is that it has a fan-less design. HTPC machines are often plagued by PSUs that hum or have loud fans. This PSU is completely silent, which again makes it a perfect candidate for this job.
The HTPC case I installed this PSU into was a little on the odd side, since the spot for the PSU was on the opposite side of the motherboard from the one that is commonly used. In the above picture, you can plainly see the PSU opening on the bottom right.
As you can see in the above pic, the PSU connector plate fits into place just as a full fledged PSU would. You can clearly see the plugs for connecting to the external unit.
The above is a view from the inside, before any of the cables are hooked up. As you can see, the cables have plenty of length to connect to anything inside the case that they need to. One thing I would like to point out is that, with this particular case configuration, the ATX power connections are only possible with the cable running across the top of your installed PCI and PCI Express cards. This makes it a little tougher to swap out cards, and is just an odd configuration. This would be a problem with any PSU in the case, I would imagine.
In the above picture, you can see that the computer has been completed, and all of the power connectors are now connected. The braided cables really give the inside of the case a sleek look. Note the large ATX cable arching over the top of the video card to find its spot on the motherboard.
