Good Box but...


I've built two of these as e-mail, websurfing boxes for my son and sister. Both with P4 processors. Other reviews scared me away from the Celeron's. Great box a little tight but the but is b/c the box would not power up when I installed a Wireless B...

ASUS Terminator P4 533A Intel Pentium 4 / Celeron Intel Socket 478 SiS 651 SiS 315 Barebone


Built numerous systems based on this barebone along with Celeron 2.4G, 256M PC2700 and 40G HD. Highly recommend for lightweight use in the office. Additionally, used this as a basis for a Fedora Core 3 Linux server. Works great! Hope NewEgg can keep...

Best There Is


This is the second one of these I have purchased. Unless you need a full tower case, are photo editing or playing high end games, this box does an outstanding job. Don't let the specs fool you. This thing is very fast. I installed a P4 2.26 Ghz...

ASUS Terminator P4 533A Intel Pentium 4 / Celeron Intel Socket 478 SiS 651 SiS 315 Barebone


Nice little Barebones, but it does not include the CF Card Reader like the picture suggests. However, the CF Card Reader was not listed in the product specs.

ASUS Terminator P4 533A Intel Pentium 4 / Celeron Intel Socket 478 SiS 651 SiS 315 Barebone


"Use only processors with a Northwood core. Processors with a Prescott core will not work." --Gary This means these won't work with a the new Celeron D with Prescott core and 533FSB. To bad.

ASUS Terminator P4 533A Intel Pentium 4 / Celeron Intel Socket 478 SiS 651 SiS 315 Barebone


What a nice little computer. Be forewarned that this is a *very* basic box and that you definitely will not get any frills here. However if thats all youre after, it will work great. The inside of the case is very tight. Even though there is room for...

Terminator 4 Barebones


I have built 13 of these now as workstations, from the initial Terminator 4 (blue) to the latest (black) and have had no issues with any of them. My latest purchase does not include the CF card reader as pictured, but this is not an issue for my...
