Pimp my Sam460ex

Subject: Pimp my Sam460ex

Hi I'm new here, was told over on AW.net that this is the best place for AmigaOne discussions?

I recently acquired a Sam 460ex on ebay, and am looking for advice for how to set it up optimally.

So far I have put it in the smallest microATX case I can find, although that's still fairly big compared to miniITX cases. I've populated it with the following:

- 2GB RAM
- SD card for boot disk, running OS4.1FE Update 1
- Radeon 6450 that it came with. I know it's not the most powerful card but it's passive (silent) and half height and it works and has 1GB video RAM. I've bought Enhancer to get the updated driver.
- A 3Com wifi card with atheros chip that's known to work (and almost does... see separate thread for that)
- Connectors on all the USB headers to maximise (I mean, why use a hard disk, it's 2020)

I got a 1U small PSU for it but it's noisy a.f. so I'm replacing it with a PicoPSU and a silent unit.

It's missing its original backplane - anyone know where I can source one? ACube aren't answering their emails.

I've tried an external USB DVD drive I had lying around, and it's recognised but doesn't work (and makes all attached USB devices freak out). Any thoughts?

Anyway apart from all that, what other recommendations do you guys have?
