Does that Scythe Big Shuriken not interfere with the memory?
No problem with the memory, but interferes with PCI-E slot.
Why do different motherboards provide different CPU voltages to the same CPU chip. I thought that in the i5 generation, the CPU specified the voltage it wants over the VID pins. There could be some error on individual motherboards - but why 20%. Is this test repeatable? Is it possible that the test conditions were just different in each case and the results are random?
Not sure, but both the H55 and H67 Zotac boards have given our test CPUs a bit more juice than other models.
Was wireless n tested on both 2.4ghz and 5ghz bands? Also, do you happen to know if the atheros chipset used supports the 450mbps theoretical rate of the newest 80211n implementations? For the latter question I'm guessing no since I believe you need 3 antenae for that "standard".
2.4ghz I think. I have no idea if it supports 450mbps. Try googling the model number. There's a screenshot of the device manager listing on the test methodology page.
I do wish it had more than 4 sata internal ports however. My main HTPC uses 5, including the blu-ray drive.
Do you use eSATA? If you don't, you can convert the eSATA port at the back with an adapter cable and route it back inside. That would give you 5.
