    I wish I could find some pics of the inside of the case.

    But I ordered one anyway, because the psu is probably worth the $90 by itself.

    I did an image search last night too, but the problem is that there
    are several series of the M-12 pc's, and the cases vary among them.
    Some of them are obviously Chenbro server cases, with Alienware front panels.
    But either way, I was waiting to see what would come up at woot after that electric blanket they had went off, when I spotted your thread.
    Thanks for the reminder. :bigthumb:

    There is no 700W Enermax. The closest,... a 720W Enermax, but that one has different amperage ratings.

    Someone said on that site that the PSU was this one.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817174028

    AW does use Hipro.

    If you bought that case,... you might as well buy a Kill A Watt Load Meter. :mamoru:

    In some of the pics of the case from a side view, you can see the Enermax logo on the psu.

    What worries me, is that the case is obvioulsy a Chenbro.
    And that's a server board in there, which means the case can't possibly be just 18" deep like it said in the listing.
    I hope I don't wind up with another moose sized case.

    The dimensions on the woot listing say
    Dimensions – (W) 7.5” x (D) 17.5” x (H) 16.3

    If that's the case, then great. But it looks a lot bigger than that.

    Read the discussion thread on the woot site.
    It is the Hipro

    http://www.woot.com/Forums/ViewPost.aspx?PostID=1559961&PageIndex=6&ReplyCount=263#post1560404

    The guy who said it's Enermax just found a pic through google.
    http://www.woot.com/Forums/ViewPost.aspx?PostID=1559961&PageIndex=2&ReplyCount=264#post1560135

    Another pic from that thread,.. definitely not an Enermax.

    It does look like a HiPro, but it's not the one linked.
    The amp ratings don't match the woot info.

    Now I gotta find the right one.

    I almost bought it but I figured im not going to build a new comp for quite sometime (4-6 months) and I would rather not have people think my comp is an AW overpriced piece of crap.

    I'm bracing myself for something different, but that's the only one I could find with those amp ratings.

    Price is TOO good for a high end PSU.
    Probably just a Hipro.
    Update the thread when you receive it.

    I wonder how much Alienware charges for the Alienware-brand noise dampener. Spire sells it for $5 a box.

    If it's a Hipro, then the website gave out the wrong amp ratings for it.

    Hipro doesn't make one with those ratings. And neither does Enermax.

    But I will definitely post which one I was lucky/unlucky enough to get when it comes in.
