VIA EPIA/ C3
Identical twins: the only difference between the Eden 1500 and the EPIA is the CPU.
The second system we tested was a first generation EPIA board. Although based on a C3 processor (Ezra with 800 MHz and 133 MHz FSB), it is otherwise substantially the same as the Eden. Unlike the Eden, the EPIA system is fitted with a CPU fan, which must not be removed. We would prefer to see a high-quality copper cooler, which would allow the fan to run at a lower speed.
A detailed specification of this board is available from the VIA website.
