ASUS AM1I-A AM1 2 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard

2 out of 5 eggs linux disaster 08/14/2015

This review is from: ASUS AM1I-A AM1 2 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard

Pros: easy to setup
runs windows 7 well
decent BIOS features
serial and parallel ports for those that need

Cons: can't boot FreeNAS after install
can't boot Ubunutu Server after install
compatibility issues with Amahi during installation, constant invalid code error

Other Thoughts: bought this mobo for my FreeNas build along with an AMD Kabini 2.05 GHz quad-core. Unfortunately, I could not get it to boot after install. The screen would flash multiple times after post and then go straight to BIOS. Tried reinstalling many times while tweaking the mobo settings (UEFI/Legacy) but no success. I am not sure if this board was just faulty or completely incompatible with Linux, so beware.

SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290X 100361-4L 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Tri-X OC(UEFI) Video Card, New Edition
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: My 3D Mark scores 7870 vs 290X:
5089 vs. 8420

14571 vs. 24220

Comparison using Intel Pentium G3258 @ 3.2GHz and HD 7870 vs 8320 @ 4.3GHz 290X

10893 vs. 21162

AMD FX 8320 @ 4.4GHz, 1.416V VCore
16GB XMP 2400 RAM
250 GB SSD
750W Gold PSU

Cons: power hungry, check your 12V PSU rail to make sure you have enough Amps.
fairly cool, runs below 70C for my gaming needs in a mid tower.
Sluggish during intense graphic scenes in maxed out Diablo 3 multiplayer when running a two monitor setup.

Other Thoughts: Replaced my aging 7870. Got this card for a fantastic price, $260 AR. Plays all of my games on max: Anno2070, SC2, Diablo 3, C&C3. Haven't tried it with more modern games but I will eventually. This card will probably last me into the 1440p upgrade days with its 4GB of RAM. To me this card hits the right price for performance sweet spot and is a better purchase than a GTX 970.
