Biostar's iDEQ 330P small form factor system

 

SINCE SHUTTLE STARTED the small form factor craze with the seminal SV24, other...

To Biostar's credit, the iDEQ 330P's hinged chassis is a marvel to behold. When swung open, the case gives users more access to internal components, slots, and ports than any other small form factor system we've encountered. Unfortunately, though, the...

BIOSTAR iDEQ 330P AMD Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Barebone - Retail

 

Inexpensive, though you totally get what you pay for in this case.

Poorly manufactured. The card readers, USB ports and fans all failed a few months after I purchased this heap

Consumer review by:

Never Again

 

Never, ever again will I buy a Biostar/Ideq product. Everything I bought for this barebones is in a new atx on an Asus MB.

None

Problems with the motherboard from day 1. No one else makes replacement boards, and Biostar utterly fails in every way with customer service. They literally just shrugged and directed me to new products. This company needs some sort of management

Fan was noisy but is quiet now.

Nice looking case and the small form factor is nice. Easy to put together

The motherboard failed after about 10 months but Biostar customer service must just delete their calls because there is absolutely no indication they have ever tried to return my requests. Can't even find a replacement mobo so the unit is nothing more...

Paid too much for too little

 

The first case that was shipped me didn't work at all. After exchanging the case to newegg the new case had a fan failure within the first 2 weeks. That was easily fixed by changing the fan. It has now been a year since I've had the system and all of a...

Easy to build, well designed case, decent quiet cooling system, great looks

The motherboard is pretty unstable and quite poor, especially for the cost. Biostar has horrible customer service and will not back up this product if you have problems because it is bought from newegg

My first build and was surprisingly easy. I expected a heat issue however that hasn't materialized even after the CPU ran at 80-100% nonstop for almost 20 minutes.(56*C top temp) It wouldn't be a perfect unit for everyone but for my application I...

Easy assembly, quality product and design with nice appearance. Fit and finish is beautiful. Well thought out design for my application and components. Athlon 64x2 4400+, OCZ 2x1G memory, 250G WD SATA HD, Sapphire 250Mb Video card

None so far

great lil' machine

 

considering the size of course its going to get hot... i chose a 3800+ dual core to go with this system and as soon as I got it i lapped the bottom of the heatsink and used artic silver 5 thermal paste. Its been running flawlessly after hours and hours...

This system is awsome. my freind bought one and he loves it. all those people who say it is Mediocre need to have their heads examined. of course it heats up! its a tiny case! what would you think it would do? become a freezer? these systems are mainly...

Great!!!

 

This is a great product! This was the fastest I have ever built a PC. The case is very user friendly and my system runs quickly with NO heat issues. I would definitely recommend the IDEQ 330P. AMD 64 3500 ATI X850 1GB RAM 160GB Maxtor SATA
