AOpen has really done well with their first SFF PC. The EZ65 performs as good as Shuttle’s FB61 mobo. And it is definitely a head-turner too with it’s silky white finish. Design-wise, AOpen has chosen to go with a slightly different design from Shuttle and mounted the PSU behind, instead of at the side. This has the added benefit of freeing up space at the side, but once you mount your optical drive, things start to get cramped at the top. However, the uniform front panel with the use of the stealth bay doors really help to enhance the look. On the overclocking side, the Aopen EZ65 was a letdown. Hopefully AOpen can update their BIOS to allow better overclockability.
If you have lots of cash to spare, the Soldam Pandora Claire (or even any other Soldam XPC) should definitely be at the top of your Xmas wish list this year. It’s a real beauty and the design is incredibly elegant and sleek. Its White Pearl Mica finish needs to be seen in person to be fully appreciated as the pictures do not do it enough justice. With cool features like PSU muffler and swingable PSU, Soldam has really perfected what Shuttle has created in the XPC. Soldam can really claim to be the Rolls Royce of computer cases.
