Cheap and awesome!

Andrew L., Newegg
18 March 2015
  • Summary: I bought two of these boards due to how cheap they were and was really surprised! it was everything I wish the Atom was but wasn't at the time. They were very fast for how cheap they were, and handled the video from my silicondust hd homerun prime very well over the years.
  • Pros: Super cheap, low power, good graphics, many sata ports, great htpc platform!
  • Cons: The included fan was rather silly and noisy, the network card drivers on the included cd were unstable

Great for a low powered server

Gregory N., Newegg

  • Pros: Quiet and quick enough for a low powered NAS server.
  • Cons: Wish it had a few more SATA ports, but five is pretty convenient already.

Great MB

  • Pros: Easy to install - just added 8GB of approved Kingston RAM, DVD and HD. Just as fast as my old D820 Dell but runs much cooler. I use it as my home PC and it is my DVR using Beyond TV. Works great for this and even while recording or converting files to DIVX computer doesn't slow down.
  • Cons: None

Perfect for a Home File Server

Ian Doyle, Amazon
28 September 2012
  • Summary: With its 5 internal SATA III ports and low power consumption this motherboard makes a great home file server. It does not include Fake RAID so you'll have to use software RAID. This shouldn't really be an issue unless you're looking to dual-boot, which probably shouldn't be a concern for a file...

Works for me.

Michael B., Newegg
13 August 2012
  • Summary: All in all makes for a great Linux media machine. HDMI audio works fine in Ubuntu, not so much in Mint. But Ubuntu doesn't detect my TV's aspect ratio properly. I've also got one of these running a FreeNAS file server, which is feeding storage to an ESXi machine.
  • Pros: Good horsepower, all the video out you will ever need, good number of expansion slots. It's fairly Linux happy, though that should come as no shock since basically everything is Linux happy these days. It's just a nice mobo/CPU combo.
  • Cons: I've had some trouble getting HDMI to work properly in Linux, but I figure that's my problem. :)

I'm in Geek Heaven

10 August 2012
  • Summary: Loving it on Windows XP. My partner immediately noticed how quiet this new rig is. No more clunky AMD fan. In fact, since I have a well-ventilated case and am using a WD15EARS green drive and a Seasonic 300W 80-Bronze PS, I could probably dispense with the case fan too, but I'm going to wait until...
  • Pros: * Low energy consumption. Green! Save $ directly on computer electrical consumption and reduce heat output, leading to lower air conditioning costs. * Integrated on-board cpu and gpu means there is less to buy separately. The gpu is quite competent. * Silent, because there is no need for cpu fan ...
  • Cons: I can tell the system responds a little bit slower than your beefy corporate 65W dual core, but I expected that. It is not a problem. So boot time increased by several seconds and maybe Firefox takes a couple hundred milliseconds more to load than with the usual rig. Big deal. The QVL list for me...

Perfect for Free Nas Server

KEITH R., Newegg
1 August 2012
  • Summary: I bought an open box of the ASUS E35M1-I Fusion AMD E-350 APU, so its just slightly different, bios and all that is the exact same.
  • Pros: Low energy Nice bios, lots of options works lots of sata ports pci slots etc fan less
  • Cons: bios has one annoying glitch, can't boot to usb drive. it will always look for a hdd and get stuck on reboot. I don't really ever have to reboot the server so its not a huge issue for me

Great product

Stephen H., Newegg
24 July 2012
  • Pros: Very fast and capable for what it is and for the price I paid. I was surprised how snappy this is. I am not a gamer, just bought this for a HTPC I was building. It serves and plays my media easily on Windows 7 (for Linux, see cons). This isn't the fastest you'll ever use, but considering the pric...
  • Cons: I spent a week trying to get this to run on Linux (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS). It was slow, and I could not get the graphics to work right - video was choppy, slow framerate, used all my CPU. My understanding is that the open source drivers do not support hardware acceleration. So I used the FGLRX drivers...

GREAT PLATFORM

Ivaylo K., Newegg
23 July 2012
  • Summary: Very cool board, very stable, lots of features for the price! You won't be sorry if you try it
  • Pros: Ordered this motherboard to build new NAS for my network. The product came in perfect condition. Installation of the board is easy. Very cool heat sink. Very stable operation. Updated the BIOS to the latest version and everything became even much more stable. I was able to install OpenMediaVault ...
  • Cons: Not at all !!!
