As for the cooling system, it can handle any processor model from the AMD Sempron series as well as the AMD Athlon 64 2800+ or 3000+.

  
The cooler suits well for cooling junior Athlon 64 processors.

The heat transfer is probably performed through the copper sole alone. Then two heat pipes carry heat to the heat-spreader, and the two aluminum wings fasten the cooler on the frame around the socket. The fastening is very handy – you can mount the cooler with your single hand.

The employed power supply – the ENP-3125 model from Enhance Electronics – has a total wattage of 250W.


The declared characteristics of the ENP-3125 make it possible
to build a rather advanced computer.

The max currents on the +5 and +3.2V lines are somewhat too high than is really necessary, while the 16 amperes on the +12V line is the bare minimum for today. A processor like AMD Athlon 64 3000+ and a GeForce FX 5900 graphics card would consume as much as 160 watts together. And these are not the only consumers on this power line in the system.

Take note also of the mini-PCI slot on the mainboard: this function may come in most handy.


You can seldom see a mini-PCI slot in desktop computers.
