- SFF Barebones Roundup Pt. 2

The folks over at NordicHardware have part 2 of their SFF roundup completed, of which they check out systems from EPoX, Shuttle, and AOpen. In case you missed it, part 1 included systems from ABit, Soltek, and Shuttle a couple of months back.


And once again it's time for another SFF article. The last one was well accepted by you readers and since there is a lot going on in the barebone front at the moment, much more than on the conventional mainboard front, we thought of blessing you with another SFF roundup. The competitors this time is AOen's newly released EY65 XCube, EPoX' EX5-300S Mini Me and Shuttle's two latest creations ST62K and ST61G4. The two first mentioned are based on Intel's trusted i865G chipset while the last two are based on ATi's RS300 chipset also known as Radeon 9100 IGP.


- 4 PSU Roundup

Short-Media decided to round up four quality PSU's for review over the weekend. Namely, these include the Enermax 465P-VE, FSP Aurora 400-60PNU, SilenX Ixtrema 400, and Zalman ZM400A.


The question of "which power supply is the best?" comes up quite often. The PC power supply can sometimes be the culprit behind system instability; the pc won't boot, has to be restarted two or three times to completely boot, crashes, freezes or spontaneously reboots. Which PC power supply is the best? Zalman, FSP, Enermax and SilenX are four more that are put to the test so you can find out.
