    Best place to buy an SN45G

    Going to be getting one of these boys when I get back to Blighty, stick Gentoo and MythTV on it and turn it into a PVR for the lounge.

    Question is, where is the best place to buy em?

    Also, how noisy are they?

    I just bought an SN45g from Ebuyer of all places. Same price as Aria, couldnt find one cheaper.
    This one replaces an SN41G2 that I bought last week ( Planet Micro) for my XP3200 because their web site said it supports 400FSB. Does it b*****s, so they refunded me and I went for the SN45G.

    This is MUCH quieter than the other one, booted up first time with a Radeon 9600 256mb card and 512mb Kingston PC3200. Looks good so far, only been running 30 mins, but it all seems to work and the temps are low 30`s.

    Got mine from Aria for about £115 on their Daily Specials. Good service, and no problems with my shuttle other than my Ti4200 wouldn't work at all in it, and the Enhance PSU sounds like captain hook, ticking away for no apparent reason.

    Compared to just about everything else, they're pretty quiet but after a while you'll probably want to replace the stock 80mm fan with a noiseblocker fan, and possibly replace the psu with a silentX psu or at least replace the 40mm fan with an adda one.

    My SN41G2 had a ticking Enhance PSU, the SN45G has a much quieter, non ticking Achme unit

    personally I use, and so do other guys who buy lots of shuttles, www.gemma.co.uk

    I have had nothing but excellent service from them, they even refunded the delivery cost once when the driver had been a norse. Not thier fault, but it kept me happy and they got a few more shuttle bought

    Hey allan,
    the SN41G2 should support 400mhz fsb, if you have the latest BIOS update. You have to select 200mhz manually in the BIOS, but it does work. Just for future reference.

    I would never use gemma again.... they were quick to deliver the goods and take the money but the aftersales was the worst i have ever come across. They asked me to email them after i waited for 20 - 30 mins on the phone and then never responded... this happened three times and the guy was basically saying..."whatcha gonna do"

    just my two peneth!
