I am about to assemble a new PC. I would like to select
components that have better than average resistance to
external RF and minimal output of same.
I'd like to start with the motherboard. While I am fond
of the features of the EPoX 8KRA2+ (I am told that it is
just now out of production and replaced by the 8KRAI so
dealers still have them). I cannot find any data re.
EMI/RFI specs. (Indeed there is little if any comparative
data between mobos anywhere.)
8KRA2+ Specs: http://www.bit-tech.net/review/272/
I have been told that the Intel and Tyan boards are
superior for EMI/RFI, though I have seen no comparative
data to prove that.
Albatron has a series of silver coated boards that claim
exceptional EMI/RFI specs but compared to what?
Then I need to select a case and power supply: ATX,
400 watts or better, front panel USB access ... but
aluminum or steel? I don't care about looks, certainly
not about clear side panels or colorful lights ... just
stability and low EMI/RFI.
Finally, what about the choice of mouse and keyboard?
I am aware of monitor issues and will address those
separately since the budget doesn't permit addressing
it right now.
Thanks! & 73, doc kd4e
