- Bleu Jour AS (Appliance Server) Mini PC

The fellas at SubZeroTech have reviewed an SFF case by "Bleu Jour", comment vous dites, french?. It comes bundled with a well known Mini-ITX mainboard, the EPIA CL1000. Looks to be quite a nice package.


One of the problems with small form factor (SFF) technologies, particularly the Mini-ITX mainboards, is that there really aren't many companies making "cases" to hold them in. And of course if you are purchasing a Mini-PC of the mini-ITX flavor you will surely want one that is stylish to the max, while providing a good home for your hardware. This was when I decided to take a look at what was available on the market…I came across Bleu Jour, a company based out of France boasting the "French touch". Quite frankly I thought their mini-ITX housings were gorgeous, infinitely small, and supremely interesting looking.


- Enermax Security Screws


Are you one of those people that feels hesitant in turning your back on your rig at lans in the event someone holding a screwdriver decides to score a few goodies? Here's a cost effective solution for that, reviewed by the folks at SystemCooling.


For many home users, the physical security of your system is not a big deal. It's not likely that anyone is going to break into your house, open your computer, and steal a video card or memory. For others, especially those who live in areas trafficked by strangers, or for those who transport their computer often, such as LAN gamers, a little extra security goes a long way. The product we're looking at today, Enermax's Security Screws, provide that extra bit of peace of mind for those who need it.
