After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
The Soltek 85DR-C is the no frills DDR version without RAID or Creative CT5880 Audio. Personally I am not a big fan of onboard audio since it usually is never used but I cannot speak for the system integrators that oftentimes look for these features to cut costs.
