[mythtv-users] Slightly OT - nVidia Ion - 230 or 330 for Myth FE

Hi all,

In Australia and would like an Ion board (for a FE only machine).
Looking here, we can only get Zotac boards such as the 230 that needs
a proper PSU (ionitx-b-e) or the 330 which comes with the external PSU
(ionitx-a-c).  I am after one with the external brick but want it to
be silent.

- Does the 330 have to be actively cooled or can it reasonably sit
there without the heat-sink?
- Anyone seen the 230 with the external PSU (ionitx-c-u) locally for sale in AU?
- Has anyone had both the 230 and 330 and can give any reason for
getting the 330 board over the 230?

Sorry if this is getting OT, but I am sure there are many folks that
have similar questions and trust the advice of the myth community.
