XION XON-720P mATX/ ITX Slim Desktop Case, USB 3.0, 5 in 1 Card-reader, 300W PSU, Black_Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Layout is very poor for cooling, you have air intakes RIGHT NEXT to both the power supply output fan area AND the case fan area. The air intake under the HD is nice, but the rest of the cooling is one of the worse setups I've ever seen.
PS is junk - it's supposed to be a 300 watt unit, but mine fried after 5 months and I never had more than 220 watts going INTO the unit per my Brand wattmeter - seems to be more of a 200 WATT actual rating PS at best.
Installing the HD is a royal PITA.
Cable management is a PITA.
Very little space inside, and not well thought out (unlike most Shuttles for example).

Other Thoughts: I would look elsewhere for a SFF case.

HIS iCooler H775FN1G Radeon HD 7750 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Low cost.
Reliable so far, 3 months+ on 3 of them in Slackware LINUX 2u rackmount systems running 150kh/s on Litecoin no issues, 4'th card have only had for about a week so far.
Included VGA port is critical for my usage, too many cards are DVI only and I have nothing that can use DVI (yet, some year seems inevitable).

Cons: Slightly lower performance than my Sapphire low profile 7750, but those haven't been available for months and cost more when they WERE available.

Other Thoughts: Probably THE highest performance option for a low-profile system for the last few months.

ECS A75F2-M2(1.0A) FM2 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Can't think of ANY at this point.

Cons: Had to replace original motherboard (see "N/A" review) - now the REPLACEMENT motherboard has ALSO died, less than 2 weeks after I finally got it from ECS. *2 dead motherboards of same model, ONE A REPLACEMENT, in less than 6 months is unacceptable - my A10-5700 65W TDP CPU and the DDR-1333 does NOT push this board hard enough for it to keep dying.

Other Thoughts: Not sure why my earlier review showed up as "N/A"
