Pricing

All, I just want to make sure that everybody understands that the price that I've listed is MSRP, and a conservative guess at that. Street price is completely different. This system can do far less than a $200 P3. No PCI slots, only room for one HD etc. It's only built do what it does, very well and...

some answers

Wow, thanks for all the questions guys. It really helps me learn more about the products. I do not believe that there are any spare PATA/SATA connectors. Price, I would guess that this will have a MSRP of about $1700. Keep in mind that I work in a world where the IBM POS Station that you see at Kmar...

Silent Industrial PC. What would YOU use this for?

My company will be bringing this pc to market soon (Spring 07) Just wanted to get some feedback of what people think. It's designed as an industrial PC. I do not have any information in regards to price yet, but these will be mass produced. I'd really like to hear any ideas for what silent PC enthus...

I completely agree with placing the HD's in front of the intake fan. Question that I have for the group is; is there any reason that you couldn't turn the exaust fan around, and aim it at the Ninja? Or has anybody done a shroud from the CPU cooler to the exaust fan? How quiet are the HD's running? A...

update

BTW, I've since removed the two 60mm fans from the case. So now I'm down to two 92's. The mobo has the CPU fan running at 40%, and I've turned the fanmate down pretty close to as low as it will go (just under where I could hear the fan with my ear next to the PSU vent). Running CPU Burn X2 I've got ...

Aflred. Good point. However, I'm thinking of a couple of other uses. Could I use this material to line the sides (contact areas) to my 3.5" hard disk cage, in order to decouple it, while still transferring heat to the cage. Also, could I line a heavy aluminum box with it, and rely on the aluminum to...

I’d like to get the groups opinion on sheet-type thermal-conductive gel. I found this product by AGel. This is a Japanese product and they do not have any resellers in the US. Doing some reading I see that others have found similar products by 3M and that Scythe is using this gel in its drive encl...

I think that XPe is still a fairly big footprint. Should be more stable than Windows XP Pro though.

The product literature sayes that it draws 40 to 50 watts.

I have th e 15" version. It's my demo system. Any technical clients that I have eat these guys up.

Thanks for the info. guys. After seeing how many people do HD suspension, I'm re-thinking my HD enclosure. Would suspending the drives make them more quiet than my exisitng enclosure? I could easily suspend the drives where the stock PSU went, and turn the 92mm case fan toward them. How hot should h...

Hmmm. Nothing plugged into either of the PCI-E slots. I did try to power the system with the 20 pin connector plugged into the mobo.

I ordered the PW200M and planned to use it with a Delta 220 Watt Power Brick. I'm using a Asus N4L-VM Core Duo Mobo. Mobo has a 24 pin ATX connector, and the Minibox PSU has a 20.

Interesting Fan Data link for 80 and 92mm fans

http://terasan.info/siryou/fan/

Supposed fan data sheets. Sort of hard to use as these are all at different fan speeds, air flows etc. But an interesting read non the less.

Will be interested in what others think.
