ASRock B150M-ITX LGA 1151 Intel B150 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs Solid, little, inexpensive. 05/07/2016

This review is from: ASRock B150M-ITX LGA 1151 Intel B150 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Intel Gigabit!
EZ Driver installer (pretty neat idea!)
Pretty nice layout for a ridiculously cramped tiny case.
easy to use UEFI BIOS.
Heatsinks on VRM.

Cons: I kind of wish it had VGA output. Not a big deal at all, though. HDMI can be a pain to work with on older devices, and not everything supports HDMI or DVI. VGA is a dying standard, so that means it's time to upgrade monitors/TV's everywhere, right?

Other Thoughts: It's a solid little board. Build quality seems spot on, and it has all the features you'd expect of an inexpensive motherboard. It was definitely surprising to see an inexpensive mITX board with Intel gigabit ethernet built in.

This was a budget build with a Pentium Dual Core, 8gb of DDR4, Tiny mITX case, 250gb SSD, and not really anything else. It works beautifully, is super stable, and is surprisingly fast considering the cost. I'd definitely recommend this motherboard for a small and power/heat friendly internet-machine.

Fractal Design Node 202 Black with Integra SFX 450w PSU Slim Profile Mini-ITX Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This case is surprisingly nice. I didn't expect it to be so solid, for one. It just screams quality. It was easier to work with than other mITX cases i've worked with in the past--all cube style, unfortunately. It even comes with some small zip ties to help with cable management, thankfully.

Cons: Cable management is not easy. The cables are pretty stiff and want to stay where they came. With enough time, you can definitely get them to behave.

No motherboard speaker included. Quite surprised about this, as even $30 cases tend to include one.

Other Thoughts: I got this case for a lower end Skylake system, with a Pentium Dual Core G4400 in it. B150 motherboard, and a Crucial SSD. So far, it's definitely doing a great job. I'm not so sure if i'd trust a higher powered CPU and a nice gaming GPU in it, as there are no fans anywhere in the case, but you can supposedly put a couple of 120mm fans in the GPU chamber.

I hope Fractal Design cuts most of the GPU chamber out of this case and offers an even smaller version of it. Not everybody wants a cube for an mITX build. Keep some of the extra space, though! It's a great place to stash cables.

NEW For Sony VPCSA VPCSB VPCSC VPCSE VPCSD27EC Series Laptop FPC-239 HC102 Notebook Replacement HDD Hard Disk Cable Connector Accessories Wholesale
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It sort of fit into the VPCSA390X, and it works.

Cons: Very cheaply made. It's a tight fit, and has no room to flex at all. This just means the solder joints holding the motherboard connector onto the ribbon cable broke when I screw ed the drive in. I hope the second one doesn't do the same.

The SATA plug seems to be a little too large, so it sort of squeezes between the drive and the battery. It doesn't seem to affect the cover on the laptop, only giving a little resistance.

Other Thoughts: I wish it was either cheaper, or built a little stronger. I'm disappointed that the customer didn't give up on this older, proprietary Sony and get a newer laptop.
