AOpen EU965


Shuttle isn't the only company to have a handle on what makes a small form-factor chassis great. We have the occasional effort from Biostar, and while its SFF releases are rare as rocking-horse crap, they're usually pretty good

Sweet-looking, Technically capable, Well laid-out

No PCI-E power cable!

Nearly the perfect Core 2 Duo SFF chassis, let down only by the lack of a six-pin power conector
