AMUG's Super Mac Mini
Friday November 4, 2005 10:07 AM EST

AMUG has released more information and benchmarks for its Super-mini project. "Until recently the Mac mini Centris Drive Dock was the home of the AMUG Mac mini 3.5" hard drive project. However, the discovery that the Addonics SATA to IDE Converter (ADSAIDE) could be used in combination with the IDE Adapter to utilize 3.5" SATA hard drives with the Mac mini re-activated interest in the AMUG Super-mini project. While using the Maxtor 300GB SATA hard drive with the Apple Mac mini has huge performance advantages, it also creates more heat than the original Western Digital 200GB previously used in the Centris Drive Dock. I placed a Radio Shack CPU cooling fan (273-248) under the Centris drive tray and it reduced the Maxtor 300GB temperature from 122 degrees to 115 but I wanted even better cooling results. Unfortunately, plastic cases do not cool as well as aluminum," notes Arthur Whalem.

This is definitely another cool Mac mini project from the folks over at AMUG. Wait until you see the Super-mini's Xbench scores!
