I am thinking about building a system useing the Shuttle XPC SN41G2 with an AMD 2100+ XP CPU. I want to put in a better heatsink fan combo than the stock one that comes with the CPU.

Due to limited space in this Mini PC I would think that a large HSF would not fit; such as the SLK 800 and a SmartFan II.

I was hoping that someone would have practical experience with the Shuttle system and know whether the VANTEC AeroFlow VA4-C7040 would fit.

Would it make any difference if a graphics card was installed in the agp slot?

Thanks in advance.

New, and looks really good. Don't know if it's out yet...

The obvious tradeoff for big bang in a small package is once again...

A Damnded Delta. Hope you have ear plugs;)

Now I don't keep up with air cooling, so I'm not current. I don't know of way other way than old fashion ear bleeding cooling.

Short of cuting out the back, building a small box and throwing some WC equipment in it anyways...

The good news is if you read the review, it dose have descent cooling at reduced speeds.
