This review is from: NZXT Grid Ten Port Fan Hub
Pros: 1. Size - This thing is TINY for what it does! 2. - can power TEN fans! 3. - Velcro included for mounting
Cons: No speed control.
Other Thoughts: I have a board that only has 1 fan header on it. My Fractal ARC Midi has 5 fans in it. This thing is a cable management godsend! I mounted it behind the mobo tray and plugged them in. Easy as pie! Great product, easy to use and looks killer!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 1. - Cost $55 for a dual core CPU with discrete level graphics is awesome. 2 - Speedy for general tasks.
Cons: Really none at this time.
Other Thoughts: Using this in a HTPC for streaming TV shows, playing DVD movies, etc. so it doesn't need to be a barn burner! To REALLY see this APU shine you should pair it with DDR3 1866 RAM and allocate at least 1GB to graphics. The GPU core really benefits from the extra bandwidth. That's why graphics cards use GDDR5 these days. They need all the bandwidth that can be spared for passing textures through.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 1. 5 SATA 6Gb ports and 1 eSATA 6Gb. 2. FULL size micro-ATX. 3. UEFI is laid out nice and easy to use. 4. 4 pin fan header. 5. 4 DIMM slots
Cons: UEFI interface "glitches" or jumps sometimes while navigating. Hopefully will be resolved in a future update. 1 SATA port wouldn't recognize a DVD drive attached to it. move to a different port and all was well. Might be my mistake, but I've never had that happen before.
Other Thoughts: Overall I'm very pleased with this board. I'm using it with an A4 5300 APU in a HTPC and it's doing great! It's running cool, quiet and fast!READ FULL REVIEW
