    The ASRock ION 330HT-BD packs a BluRay drive along with a few other unique features usually absent from an ION platform. We pull the unit apart to see what makes it tick and even kick it into overdrive - yes we even overclocked this puppy.

    Interesting thing.. especially that OC ability. Maybe small watercooling loop would help with that. :) Tough.. not sure if it would be worth it.

    Nice review, thanks.

    There are better things to buy for 400eur. I would build Athlon II X4 with something like HD4730 for that kind of money.

    And what will you do with that for that money? You have to realize the use of this system is intended as a HTPC. This means low power draw with a complete featureset for the living room. ASRock has done an excellent job with it...It should be interesting to see what real world benefits ION 2 brings to the table...
