If it's a 'critique my Alienware', I'm sure it'll be a better fit here than G[H].Vertigo Acid said:Sigh, I was hoping for a "critique my build section" to clean up G[H] that drove me away...
can't wait to see some high-end iWill and Supermicro servers get the review
Well, I think that if people come in here to seek and give advice on OEM systems, then everything is golden...it's just that prebuilds seem to raise the ire of some people who peruse the GH forum for other information...Dillusion said:Now the mods can move the pre-built discussion out of gen hardware so theres less flaming....i think.
Sure, if it's done in a constructive and educational manner. Surely the deficiencies of the major OEMs is important for people who are looking to buy a prebuild system of their own.1c3d0g said:Is this section also for pointing out flaws and major inconveniences with Dells etc.?

RS3RS said:Good. I hate prebuilt systems (excluding laptops), so maybe we can move all of this junk into one section, which I will never check, and I'll never have to hear anyone talk about a prebuilt system ever again!!!
i think that should be a whole new threadHTPC Rookie said:w00t for being the first person to post in this section for what it was meant for!
We bought a couple IBM S series ultra small form factor model 8086-46U with the 3.4G cpu machines to eval at work. The things are barely bigger than a phone book. They've got only two 2.5 inch fans in them, not including the 1 incher or so in the power supply.
One of the 2.5 inchers is at the front, blowing in, the other in the rear, blowing out. With a 7200RPM drive, and a 3.4Ghz Intel inside, practically useless ventalation, the little suckers get hotter than hell, it's hard to keep your hand on the top of the case when it's been doing actual work for any amount of time.
The vents for the fan in the front are going to plug with dust quickly, meaning no airflow at all.
We're thinking there's no way they're gonna last even a year. But scared that's what IBM is going to make their new business desktop. We don't want to move to Dell!
Does anyone have experience with this model, like do they throttle when hot, have you had any problems with reliability, etc.?
