    How To Build a Computer From Newegg Parts

    How To Build Nettop 100 – MSI Wind PC (an Intel Atom Barebone Build)

    This is an in depth tutorial on how to build a MSI Nettop 100 otherwise known as the Wind PC. This is a dual core Intel Atom 330 barbone that is extremely sleek and uses very little power. We measured 33 watts full load. This tutorial should get you to the point of being able to successfully install Windows XP. Some of you may be wondering why waste time building such a relatively low powered computer. Well this Atom based pc has plenty of applications. The first and foremost is a file server. Once completely setup, we were able to reach read speed of 65MB/s over a gigabit ethernet connection. At those speeds this computer would make a tremendous NAS system. Similar speeds are only achieved by setups that cost a minimum of $600. Other uses include a Leopard Time Machine client. We were able to use the computer to backup my Leopard based MacBookPro. And finally the most obvious use would be a spare PC in the house. This could be a unit setup to run 24/7 since you will spend less than $2-$3 a month extra on the power bill. It could be the “Kids” PC or you could set it up in the living room for yourself or guests when they visit you. The MSI Nettop 100 – Wind PC definitely gets the L337Tech stamp of approval!
