    I rather buy a Zotac zBox based on AMD chipset for some HTPC XBMC MAME lovin on the bigscreen for around 280 euro's including 32gb SSD, remote control, hdmi etc.

    Very cool idea for a modest PC. Did not know you get smaller than micro ITX board (which I use in a WHS setup) And this one could also double as a toaster LOL !

    The photos of the inside of heatsink, per request. There is a copper block that is attached to the bottom of the heatsink with 2 screws. The copper block is pressed against the thermal pads on the CPU and the chipset, and then the heatsink is screwed to the rest of the chassis.

    I hope it's clear now, and if still not - feel free to ask additional questions :thumb:
