It's for my home/office/HTPC/internet/iGPU build. Say 350 - 500 watts max, damn near bullet proof, wannabe's need not apply.
What form factor should it be?
I'm going to build my case,I've got great fabrication skills, so it'll just get factored into the design. As such modularity might be handy, but engineering rules.

Hey, I'm making a case too. Using acrylic. We could use your help.
Acrylic isn't too bad to work with, heat and tool chatter are the biggest problems. Use high dollar Epoxy, roughen any glue surfaces, clamp joints, sharp tools and slow feed rates, watch out for scratching.
The 380D Antec EarthWattsGreen could be a good choice.
Its a decent unit and isn't too expensive as a bonus.
Just make sure it has all the connectors you need since its a non modular PSU.
It's going to power a Z170 MOBO so CPU,RAM,SATA,usb,cooler,a couple of case fans,really straightforward.
Should be fine then.
That Seasonic 450 unit leaves some room for a possible GPU one day, I think it'll do nicely.
