power supply TKO after 1 month

Joey L., Newegg
15 November 2013
  • Pros: I liked the form factor and everything (aside the ram) was pretty easy to install. The fat heatsink needed to move because it was hitting the fan.
  • Cons: It worked well for a month, but I suspect the PSU is too weak.

Unless you want seizures while viewing video with the screen constantly brightening/dimming itself, AVOID. Returning for full refund.
  • Pros: Pretty good design and capability for its size
  • Cons: Can't disable Intel Display Power Saving Technology over HDMI, making it useless for HTPC applications. The display will dim and brighten (using software analysis of objects on the screen) while watching a movie or simply maximizing/minimizing windows. Since it isn't a mobile chipset, the "Power"...
