Tiny little powerhouse.
It's a shame about the noise.
that is a pretty sexy little beast. digital storm puts out some great stuff but you srsly pay a premium for it. it sucks. i ended up getting a prebuilt from ironsidecomputers.com last month for a lot less and i'm super happy with it. hopefully they don't raise their prices like ds
Nice review. Thanks for the discussion. :)
Nice little piece of hardware! Looks awesome, performs awesome!
oo bad it doesn't sound awesome... The sound would be pretty hard for some people to deal with, and others probably wouldn't be to impressed with those temps either.
But who gives a hey? Its still amazing how much they could fit in it :D
Nice review! Can't wait to see more :D
I like how more companies are making these SFF PC's. Thanks for the review.
I really like the fact that the GPU is facing outwards on the side of the case. I know cards today don't run quite as hot as my GTX 285 does, but the heat coming off the GPU was always a large concern for me. The exhaust fan points right underneath my CPU, and I always feared it would cause a heat issue for my cpu, which it hasn't, but seeing that the GPU is usually the hottest device inside the case, I think it would be a nice idea to get that hot hair blowing directly out of the case rather than circulating around inside.
This IMO is a work of art. With PC's becoming smaller that means people won't be so hesitant to bring their PC to the next big local LAN. I see it like this, smaller form factor + less work = more LAN.
I dont get why anyone wants a small form factor PC. It always comes with limitations. My first PC was a small form factor, and I couldn't upgrade it. It was miserable and costly.
