UP ! sgtpokey , did you actually get the A-Tech case and what are your thoughts about it now ? I'd really appreciate any feedback on this case from a silent point of view while I am still hesitating to go for it, or not. P.S : It would be a great idea to review this thing in spcr labs with all the g...

A modular psu and some cable managing stuck to the central structure (bad english at midnight, my brain is surrounded by clouds...) could do the job. With some dremeling also, i suppose a 80mm would fit at the back. No need of the upper 60mm with psu fan and heatsink fan. The real problem now is to ...

Finally a concurrent for Antec's Aria !

Yes, Silverstone did it :D :D Code name is SG01 and it seems to be a good step to mATX case with ATX PSU and decent airflow. It also looks great, as always with Silverstone. Perhaps even more important : it seems to launch a new serie of cases, named Sugo, which means Silverstone is going to produce...

And dont forget the ketchup :lol: Yop wireless is also integrated from start, i forgot to mention it :oops: It seems it will really be possible to have some good airflow in it because of the external psu, just like the Zen. But some more ...

Computex : Shuttle Pentium M

Shuttle just announced their new barebone and, guess what, it's Pentium M inside :D Code name is SD11G5. It's based on last chipset i915GM/ICH6-M and therefore manage pci-express and SATA natively. Firewire, Gigabit lan and Creative audio chip are also packaged. Last, but no least, the psu will be e...

New Fanless VGA Cooling : Thermaltake Schooner

Hi guys ! Thermaltake just released a new fanless VGA Cooling which looks full of promises : the Schooner. The heatsink is pretty big, but what is really new is the two heatpipes which are going outside to an other heatsink for natural convection. This way, there's perhaps a solution for fanless hig...

If I retranslate your quote it gives this : "FID/VID Control: This makes it possible to control the SpeedStep registers directly in the BIOS. One thus can select a multiplying coefficient ranging between 6 and the maximum value (15 for one 1.5 GHz, 16 for one 1.6 GHz... etc). Same thing for the VID ...

Mats : sure the Aaopen has got the bracket advantage but certainly not the DFI's great overclocking potential. The overclocking in silence is here a reality. Who heard about a mixture of both coming from a third company ? :D Or more realistic, ask DFI two different versions (X86-secret did participa...

Hi all, first post on SPCR from France :) Just read a review on this motherboard on X86-secret. Could be an other solution to get silence by using excellent ratio heat dissipation/performance Pentium M, just as with Aaopen motherboard mentionned in an other thread. This motherboard is the sister of ...
