    my friends got a shuttle, and he likes it a lot. his has some kind of passive cooling system which is completely silent, and although i dont think he really monitors his temps, he has never had any problems with it
    he is looking to get a new mobo though, because his only supports up to something like 2ghz intel
    anyone know what kind he would need to get to do that?

    You should ditch that and get an Aria, and get a Chaintech, Asus, Abit, or MSI board.

    Shuttles are for people who don't do their homework.

    I can confirm this. My prescott 3.2e runs a bit hot. The only thing about it is people are too hard-up to get there temps ultra low. Unless it gets unbelievably high, it will perform exactly as one w/low temps.

    i'm onto my second shuttle and soon going to be ordering my third (the new SN25P shuttle as soon as it's available). Both have been awesome, the smart fan works well when gaming. Build quality rivals lian-li and other high end manufacturers. Bios and features are great as well.


    edit: neither of my shuttles overheated ever.

    the shuttles are not very good. They manage heat well, considering their size. However, they are not the best solution for the size. The asus spresso is the better-buy if you want something in that size.

    I have a socket 754 shuttle box with a 3200+ in it. I love it, no heat issues at all.

    you should at least explain why it is better. I could say the shuttle is the best just as easy.

    what makes the asus so much better?

    better motherboard is the main reason. Faster performer. Better price tag. etc.

    Out of all those SFF PC's, the FIC Condor is the easiest to work with...It won Maximum PC's SFF of the year for 2004.

    I don't know anything about it's performance however, but I've used a couple of FIC boards in my time, and they were quick, as well as stable.

    My current board is a Chaintech 7NIL1, and I am digging this thing. Dual channel and hot key power up ROCK!

    it's a mac... it really doesn't compare to the pc. If you need a mac, you need a mac. if you need a pc, you need a pc.
