Cooler Master HAF Stacker 915F Mini-ITX Computer Case - Supports Large CPU Air Coolers (Front PSU Mount)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: See my previous review.

Cons: See my previous review. Besides the lack of USB 2.0 ports on the front bezel, I just realized that there is also no HDD status LED on the indicator panel and there's no speaker included with the hardware.

Other Thoughts: All my previous statements remain the same except that I forgot to mention that there is no HDD status LED and no speaker included with the case too. While it's easy enough to add these yourself, it really should have been added to/included with the case from the factory.

5 out of 5 eggs These antennas work great on Hensel Porty Premium portable studio flash generators 09/11/2014

This review is from: Super Power Supply® 3 x 2dBi 2.4GHz 5GHz Dual Band WiFi RP-SMA Antenna for Routers Linksys EA6900 TP-Link TL-WR1043ND TL-WR2543ND TL-WDR4300 ASUS RT-N16 RT-N66U RT-AC66U

Pros: Cheap! They're also pretty good quality too.

Cons: Wasn't free?

Other Thoughts: I bought these to replace the tiny whip antennas I lost on my Hensel Porty Premium portable studio flash generators. The packs have a standard RP-SMA connector on them so they can accept a standard RP-SMA antenna thankfully. Granted they're not as small as the original antennas, but since they bend, it's not a huge deal. Since they're larger I get a little more distance from the remote too (either as a trigger or when I change the power levels remotely).

ASUS C8HM70-I/HDMI Intel Celeron BGA1023 Intel HM70 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo

5 out of 5 eggs Sweet, sweet board for pfsense! 09/11/2014

This review is from: ASUS C8HM70-I/HDMI Intel Celeron BGA1023 Intel HM70 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo

Pros: It's tiny, got a low profile CPU heatsink, uses SO-DIMMs (and they're horizontally mounted to save space), it sips power, and even though it's a Celeron CPU, it's a Celeron in name only. The fact it's got a PCIe X16 slot is just the icing on the cake too.

Cons: I wish a PC speaker was soldered onto the board already, but at this price, that's just nit-picking! I truly love this board. Some people have complained that the stock fan is noisy. I can't comment on that because I remove it and added my own fan.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to upgrade the computer that's running my pfsense firewall. I was running a Dell small desktop that I shoe-horned a Core2Duo e6600 (@2.4Ghz) CPU into. The Celeron 847 on this board runs nearly as quickly as that old C2D e6600, but does it using a LOT less power and generating a lot less heat when the CPU's are running at full speed, and it's 1/4 of the size of the old system (I built a custom enclosure to house this board).

The board worked great out of the box; heck I didn't even hook up a keyboard to it. I just checked my pfsense config on the old computer before powering it down and moving the drive & dual port Intel server NIC card to the new system, powered on this board, and ... that's it really. It worked without a single hiccup.

I can't speak of the suitability of this board for other projects that have high video demands or are computation heavy, but as a print server, a pfsense firewall, or even a file server this board is amazing! I wish this board was available when I upgraded another one of my systems two years ago; it'd have cost me 1/3 of the price in the long run and performance wise they're indistinguishable.
