Sweet Ease of Installation

Jeremie O., Newegg
3 May 2012
  • Summary: I watched a nice video from New Egg TV on YouTube showing how to build a home theater PC using a Zotac MB and an Intel MB. I don't actually own it, but it is my wish that I can obtain one of these in the future
  • Pros: Ease of Installation, AMD Processor, doesn't require a fan, or lots of cables like the Intel boards
  • Cons: None that I can tell. Is the processor slower than the Intel I5?

Great for Windows or Linux HTPC

Timothy B., Newegg
30 December 2011
  • Summary: I love this board for what it's for, HTPC. I wouldn't recommend it for gaming or other sorts of video demanding usage since it only has a 1 PCIE x1 slot.
  • Pros: This board is great for small HTPC type systems. It fit very well with my Silverstone MILO case (ML03B). To top it off I put in an AMD x6 1100T Black Edition processor. It works great. BIOS is a little confusing but suits my needs.
  • Cons: BIOS has grammatical issues and is a bit confusing when reading what each setting does. Definitely written by a foreigner. Also, when trying to boot from a USB thumb drive to install the OS, make sure you look in some forums as it's a little unorthodox compared to most boards. Linux video driver ...

Nice Board - BAD Rebates

Adam T., Newegg
27 December 2011
  • Pros: Lots of features in a SFF. Absolutely no problems setting up.
  • Cons: I've purchased TWO of these boards and TWO Fusion350 boards and to this date (12/27/11) have still NOT received ANY of the rebates I sent away for... purchase 7/29/11, 8/30/11 and the Fusions, 9/1/11, 10/21/11... and this WAS a purchasing factor!!!!

Excellent board in a small package

William S., Newegg
20 November 2011
  • Summary: I built a mini-ITX tower as a somewhat portable HTCP and to drive the software for my guitar effects pedal/switching board. 6-core Phenom II, 8GB RAM, Hitachi 2TB HD for storage, Corsair 64GB SSD for OS/Programs, SeaSonic Fanless PSU, Shuriken CPU Heatsink/Fan.
  • Pros: Packed with features. WLAN. Takes standard desktop DDR3. Works with my 6-core Phenom II. I would buy this one again. I have recommended it to several friends as well.
  • Cons: Not sure if it's an issue with the MB or my SSD or a combination of the two, but if I allow it to sleep or hibernate for more than a couple of hours, it will not wake up without a hard re-boot. I haven't had the time to investigate the exact cause.

BIOS is useless

Yevgeniy B., Newegg
7 November 2011
  • Pros: The BIOS on this board is useless. It lacks even the basic voltage adjustment for RAM. The board also doesn't play well with raid adapters. I have purchased RocketRAID 2640x1 card and it performs very poorly under 90MB's write times.
  • Cons: Avoid the headache and go with well known brands such as Asus/Gigabyte.

Awesome!!!

Mable G., Newegg
19 August 2011
  • Summary: Almost the best ITX motherboard in existence. The best would have to be the J & W Minix 890GX-USB3.
  • Pros: Posts extemely fast. Unlike the 700 series south bridge there is no delay after POST to detect AHCI device. Windows just fires right up.
  • Cons: No COM port header.
