GIGABYTE GA-H81M-DS2V (rev. 1.0) LGA 1150 Intel H81 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap, supports i7s

Cons: Crowded, my 2 slot video card cooler is actually touching my PCIe Wifi card, but it works.

Need a compact video card to use the middle PCIe slot.

Not sure why they don't put the second PCIe slot above the PCIe x16 slot so you can use it.

Other Thoughts: I put an i5-4590 in it and it's running like a dream.

Didn't realize it doesn't support RAIDs, I thought everything did that these days...

Intel Core i5-4590 Haswell Quad-Core 3.3GHz LGA 1150 84W BX80646I54590 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: So Fast!!
Low power usage
Easy to install.

Stays 37-39C when browsing internet, ups to 45C when playing games.

Cons: Price? But it really isn't that bad.
Wasn't impressed with the snap in cooler method, but seems an Intel system in general.

Other Thoughts: I was using an old Athlon II X2 270 because it's almost as fast as the AM3+ CPUs, just with two cores. I mostly run single thread programs so I didn't see a point in upgrading, but I needed a faster CPU.

Finally I did some reasearch, found what socket would run an i7 then got the cheapest quad core that fit in that socket. $45 motherboard with a $180 CPU that is much faster than anything AMD has and cheaper.

QNAP TS-212-US Diskless System All-in-one NAS Server with iSCSI for SOHO and Home Users
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Easy to set up
Good price
Reliable (after a few updates)
Great User Interface

Cons: Bright LEDs! They work great as a night light...

Other Thoughts: Currently using it with two Seagate 4TB Hard Drives (ST4000DM000).

2.5 TB is set aside as an apple "Time Machine" and the rest is used for my Windows computer. The Apple devices It had issues connecting to it at first but QNAP fixed that with a firmware update like a year and a half ago. They've made a ton of improvements to it's firmware and now it runs great!

We've had it for almost two years now without issue.
