This review is from: Intel BOXD945GCLF2 Atom 330 Intel 945GC Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo
Pros: Wanted to try out the new Dual-Core Atom and it has exceeded my expectations. Processor supporting MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3, EM64T, Hyper-threading tech emulating a four-core processor.
Cons: People have been complaining about the GPU's fan and I don't understand why. It's been fine.
Other Thoughts: This little dude packs a POWERFUL punch for its size. I would recommend this motherboard to anybody building a computer for themselves. I picked this motherboard because I wanted a computer just for basic needs as well as a cut from the electric bill without sacrificing performance by a large margin.
For the fan problem, just let the BIOS control it. Change the settings from constant to the variable 50% - 100%.
If you had a car and ran it at 100% all the time the engine would kill over too wouldn't it? That small little stock fan wasn't meant for super sayian speed.
Pros: Nasty-quick little drive. The cache size is awesome.
Cons: None but I wonder what a 64MB cache would be like.
Other Thoughts: I picked this drive because I don't even use 25% of a 500GB or 1TB drive. No use of getting a large drive if I don't even use most of it. I have to admit, I have been impressed with 32MB cache drives.
If you need a fast little hard drive for a home desk top, this item is perfect!
This review is from: SeaSonic ECO 300 300W SFX12V (v.3.1) 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
Pros: Powerful little PSU. Does what it's suppose to do.
Cons: Naw... None.
Other Thoughts: Had to purchase this PSU because the case I was using (HP Pavilion 6635) for my custom pc didn't have any. What can I say, the case is small.
Here's the Atom Project (in newegg item numbers):
