Quiet and Stable


A good stable platform for the office, not very expandable.

Very Quiet. Intelligent Fans mean unit is very quiet under most conditions. ASUS includes a good CPU fan allowing you to use OEM CPUs. Intel chipset seems very stable, no issues

As stated, there are some drawbacks: No real room for a FDD, despite having the physical space for one. The HDD mounting scheme is slick with rubber isolators, but one of the plastic latches has snapped, forcing me to use the other set. As mentioned...

What was Asus thinking?


I'd built a couple of systems around the Pundit-R and was looking forward to using the Pundit-PE3 for a new customer and I'm not sure I'd do it again. The Pundir-PE3 is a nice box with lots of room for an SFF case. It's got a good sized power supply...

Product Specifications

A reliable system for your press conference presentations, personal tax data, memoir drafts, customer contacts and countless other information is crucial, because once you lose them, they're gone forever. The Pundit-PE3 incorporated the Recovery Pro data protection technology to provide a save environment for important files. Slim and sleek, the Pundit-PE3 allows vertical and horizontal placements, making it ideal for cluttered desks or home entertainment centers. The accessory pads further prevent the barebone system from scratching desk surface. The clever mechanical structure and special clip design facilitates easy assembly, expansion and upgrade without the hassle of unscrewing and screwing the different parts. The Pundit-PE3 is based on the Intel 915GL chipset and supports the latest Prescott Pentium 4 processors. It enables 3.6GHz P4 processing for efficient multi-task operation, and supports a full array of multimedia standards, such as IEEE 1394, 6-channel audio and S/PDIF out. Despite its compact size, the Pundit-PE3 still provides excellent flexibility for future upgrade with Serial ATA, dual-channel DDR 400 SDRAM, PCI Express slot and two PCI slots. ASUS Q-Fan automatically adjusts CPU fan speed based on system loading and temperature to ensure a quiet and distraction-free working environment.
