Epox eX5-320S SFF PC

 

When it comes to manufacturing motherboards, Taiwan-based Epox is well respected amongst enthusiasts. While we've only had the opportunity to review a few of their motherboards over the years, the small sample we have tested were fairly impressive. ...

Benchmark Summary: The Epox eX5-320S did very well in our benchmarks, consistently placing second in each and every test we threw at it. The memory performance enhancement on the motherboard gave it a slight advantage over the similarly configured...

EPoX eX5-300S Mini Me SFF System

 

EPoX eX5-300S Mini Me SFF System Review First things first, why does EPoX love using upper and lower case letters for the company name and products?. That beats us. That aside, EPoX is trying a few new ventures right now, because diversification is...

EPoX's brief when launching a new SFF system was to be a little different from the rest. There was no value in launching a Shuttle clone. We reckon that EPoX has succeeded in bringing to market a product that is sufficiently unique to be a real...

So far its great, but....

 

I have the problem with the HD pushing up on the video card. But overall system runs like a champ. I have a P4 3.0E 1 meg cache 800 mhz fsb with 1gig ddr400. Runs a little on the hot side, but most prescotts do from what I understand, pretty quite....

EPoX eX5-300S Intel Socket 478 Intel 865G 2 x 184Pin Intel Extreme Graphics 2 Media Center

 

This was my first time with a SFF PC. The Mini ME is nice, but definitely not a five star product. Cons: 1. Power connecter is placed over the expansion slots. This makes it difficult and frustrating to screw them in. 2. Not a biggie, but the panel...

1. Aluminum ; 2. Flash reader included ; 3. Lots of USB ports + firewire ; 4. Hefty CPU/Chipset heatsink with dual fans ; 5. *Really* cheap SFF PC. I see Newegg has them for 230 - 30 w/ free shipping. Wow, I wish I had waited

1. Power connecter is placed over the expansion slots. This makes it difficult and frustrating to screw them in ; 2. Not a biggie, but the panel only displays the time in 24hr format ; 3. CD/DVD installation is a pain. There is no room between the...

Fast delivery

 

NewEgg delivered everything within two shipping days, that's good enough for me... 1 gig RAM 2.8G P4 w/ 1meg L2 cache DVD and SATA 120gig hd it runs smooth through windows apps. If you're a mild gamer it's just fine there - Feelancer and Simcity4 run...

Really nice system, sleak and powerful. use it as an alarm clock in college, cant really see the time from a distance because backlight is off but i wouldnt want it any other way.. still does the good part... the waking up. Specs: P4 2.6C 800FSB HT,...

Nice LCD (can display Temp, Time, Play Time as well as computer specs), Fast, Portable, Well Cooled, YOU CAN FIT 2 HARDDRIVES (must have a 2 channel IDE cable, and a 3.5bay cover which i had from a silver case i already own) ; Cons: Video Card is...

Video Card is slightly pushed by the harddrive and the use of a non-electic pad has to be placed on the vid card (its provided, no problems since install) but it is tight. no Floppy connector, i wouldnt want to connect one but options are a beautiful...

My bad

 

Nevermind about that SPdif problem. Apparently it acts independently of the sound manager tester. If you use the sound manager to test your rear/center/sub speakers they won't sound through SPdif. Play some real music and you'll hear them fine.
