1 out of 5 eggs Project Tiny has ended abruptly due to unforseen circumstances 05/07/2013

This review is from: ASRock FM2A75M-ITX FM2 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX AMD Motherboard

Pros:

The only board at the time to support AMD A10 in a Mini-ITX form factor.

Cons:

I came home to a burning plastic smell. After 2 weeks of constant use, Tiny, my mini-ITX box, set next to my TV, was dead. I've had it overheat before, even with my Zalman ZNPS 7500 CU, and it'd just turn off, so I tried turning it on, and saw fire, and immediately pulled the plug, took the cover off, checked all the wires, and didn't see anything. Plugged it back in to see where the fire originated, and it sparked next to the 4-pin CPU power connector, and actually melted part of the board next to it. The board is done for.

Other Thoughts:

At the time of its release, there were two mini-ITX motherboards which supported Socket FM2, this one and MSI's. I could not find any place that sold MSI's board, but did find it was a bit more expensive, and decided that this one had all the features I really needed, and anything extra could be added later.

My roommate pointed out the terrifying thought that what if the failsafes didn't kill the power to the board and the fire was left uncontrolled while we were out having dinner? We'd be homeless and everything we had of value would probably be destroyed.

Manufacturer Response:
