Dual Opteron SFF

Sometimes good things come in small packages.  Quite often though, to have a system that can really perform requires a large chassis.  IWILL doesn't think so as they show off their ZMAXdp Dual Opteron SFF Barebones over at BigBruin today.  This funky little system offers some major performance possibilities as you can run two dual core Opterons for a nice little Quad Core setup.

I bought a sound level meter a few months ago thinking I could use it in cooler reviews, but didn't realize that the device didn't register below 50 dBA. Until now I have yet to have a system that even registers on the meter, but with the fans at full speed the ZMAXdp definitely does. With the probe aimed at the front of the closed case from 1 meter I got a reading of 54 dBA. With the probe aimed at the rear of the closed case from 1 meter I got a reading of 57 dBA.
