Yeah, I'm worried about that too. The case I was planning on was the
Travla C158 Mini-ITX Case 120W. It's the perfect size and it's
mountable. Unfortunately the the HD-3000 will be sitting directly over
the HDD.  I hoped to get address some of the heat issues with a HDD
cooler like the Zalman ZM-2HC2

Would that be enough or am I just trying to fit too much into too small an area?
