    Looks ok. Does anybody know if it keeps the optical drive permanently powered like the old model?

    Looks great... like the original MSI Mega PC. Deliberately Hi-Fi-esque without being over the top

    the feature set looks ok, but I believe they still use USB 1.1 which is incredibly shocking.

    I heard the same thing about this being MSI's last attempt at a SFF. They were never able to produce an adequate cooling system and it is apparent that this 64 based cube will run way too hot

    Going to be buying the Mega 180 model soon. After a carry case similar to the Shuttle version for taking to LAN's and general transporting of the system. I know that MSI make the carry cases but im yet to find a UK retailer that stocks them. Can anyone help me out?

    Sorry Rexticle - it is actually USB2.0 ( I have 1 here at work sat on my desk for "demo" purposes and evaluation.

    As for the A64 based version, I can find out if thats the issue from my contact at MSI shortly

    Best Regards
