Hi guys looking for some advice on a new Plex/torrent box I'm putting together to stream to my roku etc.

I've gone an bought one of these cases (free shipping yay!) so I'm already set on an ITX build.

I was looking at the AM1 platform for its low power consumption and bank for buck, has anyone had experience with them?

Another issue with this is most AM1 boards only have 2 SATA ports (I currently have 3 HDDs in my old box) although this should be easy to get around with a PCIe raid card off ebay.

I already have some DDR3 RAM and a modular PSU so no worries there.

What y'all think?

OT: but how did you score free shipping on the elite 130? when I go to checkout it says shipping is $50 to nz (unless you're not in NZ?).

I ordered a few hundred $ worth of stuff and asked nicely if they could waive the shipping as they had that free shipping promo a while back, and they did!
