I replaced the fan. I cheated though. I cut the wires running to the old fan, and the new fan had a 4 pin molex connector. I routed it through the fan case and booyaka! It works. No more sleepless nights listening to the A4K fan. Only downside is the fan emits a blue color.

The website picture reminded me, covered up the grill which faces into the system so that the PSU only exhausts out the back of the computer.

I am not sure that 14A on the 5v rail is enough... Will check the LiteON PSU's I have on my A4000's and report... IIRC they outpout 18A on the 5v rail, and it made a difference on my csppc/g-rex setup...

I don't doubt that you're right. I cannot find my original PSU, but I recall thinking about the differences in power. None the less, my system runs well with this unit, though I realize that I will probably have to bump it up to a larger supply when I get a Deneb. Although the offset of power usage might balance out, as I'll be trading the Zip drive for a USB multi-card reader and the X-Surf 3cc for a USB network adapter.

atxpowersupplies.com has a 230W unit which would probably work, it just has a few connectors which I'll never use, like the SATA power and 4-pin 12V connector. It puts out 5V @ 18A and 12V @ 7A, with another 5V for stand-by at 2A.

18A seems to be the best 5V output. As we move up in Wattage, only the 12V and 5V-SB seem to increase, and the length does as well. At least what they carry. I'm not overly motivated to research at the moment :-)
