5 out of 5 eggsGreat board 4 a homebrew NAS

Pros: Low power consumption, little heat, pairs well with Kabini quad core 5350. Has all the amenities of a full ATX motherboard, just less of quantity of them.

Cons: None so far. I will report back after completing my NAS build.

Other Thoughts: Using it for a NAS with OpenMediaVault installed. Added 8 Gigs of ram, Kabini 5350, Artic Alpinte M1 CPU cooler, (4) 2TB drives and (3) 1TB drives. Raid 10 and Raid 5 respectively. Added (2) SYBA PCI express Sata 6 controllers just for the software raids too. Just ordered a new 500 Watt power supply as my old recycled 650 Watt was noisy as heck. All parts from Newegg of course. So far testing file transfer rates, additional services installed within OMV does not have any overall impact to the system. The rig does look promising...I will let you know after more stress testing of motherboard :)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product Work well all my add-ons

Pros: Runs like a charm.

Cons: needs more usb 3.0 ports. I did buy an usb hub to address the issue.

Other Thoughts: Be careful flashing the Bios update. I had a power interruption during a flash update which ruined the mobo. Nothing like restarting and no beeps..no bios posts...Cpu fan stops..Yikes! My fault. Had to chunk it and and order a new one. This was I guess an act of nature. Odds of it happening again during a flash is remote. Such a good price, for a mobo, a replacement is chump change.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect board for a low budget HTPC build.

Pros: Great BIOS. For the price, I don't think anything can beat it. Well done GIGABYTE.... well done.

Cons: The only con I can list is that it has only 2 Sata ports, but this is just a limitation of the AM1 chipset.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent

Pros: I bought this as a package with the Fractal Design Core 1000 note this mother board does not come with a usb3 connecter for the front port on this case I don't get why you package this if I can't use it? Overall decent gig software and bios are awesome for updates best around imo

Cons: usb 3 n/a If used with core 1000 case.

5 out of 5 eggsAMD 5350 Kabini multimedia system

Pros: Considering the low power this system uses, it works very well. Reasonable response. Good playback. I am very happy with it.

Cons: VLC works well for this system to play 1080P movies. But media player classic 1.7.9 64 bit stutters badly, even though it shows 20% CPU use. My Intel systems have no problems with any media player.

Other Thoughts: Win7 64 Bit
Gigabyte AM1M-S2H motherboard.
One hard drive, 7200 RPM.
One DVD player.
380W Antec Earthwatts 380W 80 plus bronze power supply
4 Gigs ram 1.5v CL9 1600mhz
Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250 two tuner card 4 Watts max

Power usage, Win 7 Media center
Desktop, computer idle, 25W, 0% CPU
Playing HD TV show, 29W-33W, 30% CPU
TV guide open, 29-32W, 27% CPU
Looking at TV guide with TV playing in background 31-35W, 30% CPU

The most intense 1080P movie is usually around 45% CPU with 62% peaks 35-38W (planet earth pole to pole), using VLC 2.1.5.

I gave this CPU a 5 star rating because it works well for what it was designed for. A low power medium performance system.

Read my two reviews on the AMD 5350 CPU for AMD driver tips for a 3X improvment on performance. Hint.

http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/Top-Driver-Issues.aspx

Enabling AMD Quick Stream on AMD APU products can negatively affect internet performance.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Deal, Small issues as noted

Pros: Low cost namebrand motherboard that worked on install. Only 4 of 5 stars because of minor issues as noted in cons.

Cons: Driver Disc was acting strange when trying to load drivers. I ended up placing this DVD into another computer, writing those files to hard drive, and then burning a different DVD-R with the data off the hard drive that came off the original disc to get the driver disc to work correctly in new build.
Time Delay at POST is very short, you have to be very quick to get into BIOS. Took me 3 tries but got in.
Tried to use HDMI at get go as display without OS installed and ran into some video problems. HDMI video didnt work correctly until after OS was installed with video driver. Good thing TV had a VGA port to use for initial build.

Other Thoughts: Default BIOS config is UEFI for Windows 8. I had to go into BIOS and switch all settings to Legacy for Windows 7 64-bit build. Boot order also had to be selected with Legacy boot order vs UEFI default.
