Let it glow, let it glow, let it glow! UV fans are a great way to mod and add color to your computer. Fleetwood Computers sent me some of their Sunbeam 80mm UV fans.

Wow! This is a great board. I see good things for Soltek in the future and I can’t wait to test more of their products. The board only comes with the bare necessities but its performance level makes up for this. The AGP performance could be a little better but I’m not complaining.

Version 1.2 added multiplier settings but failed to address the lack of voltage adjustments. If future revisions of the board are made I would strongly recommend that Soltek raises the max Vcore settings. The layout of the board is OK except for some minor disturbances which unless you swap hardware constantly you will probably never notice
