Default Re: Micro-ATX --->Which One?

I have good air circulation in my Mozart since there are 10 120mm fans in it. I will have a ZEROtherm BTF90 for the cooler and will add a 80mm fan for the rear exhaust. I had this cooler on my Q6600 and 3.3GHz is about max for this cooler to keep a quad under 55c. This is the reason I know 3.6GHz will not be possible not to mention the micro board. I won't have the room for a TRUE due to the room on the other side of my case. I am leaning toward the ASUS micro since my other board is an ASUS Maximus Formula and I like the Bios options on these boards. Great for OC'ing.

I've gotten a 1Ghz overclock with my MicroATX board [1.9Ghz to 2.9]... They can't be that bad?

Noone is saying that you can never get "good" overclocks with micro atx boards, its just LESS likely.

So what kinda power am I looking at to run a micro board? I only need to run the board, cpu fan, HDD, and DVD. No other fans, video card, or anything else. I could run the DVD and HDD from my 1000w PSU I have the other board running on.

Newegg.com - FSP Group SAGA+ 400R ATX12V 400W Power Supply 120/220 - 240v NEMKO, TUV, CSA, IEC, UL, CE - Retail

Newegg.com - Thermaltake TR2 W0070RUC ATX 430W Power Supply 115/ 230 V - Retail

The FSP is a more trustworthy name. Plus, it has more amps then the TT.
