ASUS CHROMEBOX-M004U Desktop PC Celeron 2955U (1.4GHz) 2GB DDR3 16GB SSD HDD No Screen Google Chrome OS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: very small
has 1 mem stick so adding 1 2gig stick bumps it to 4gig and it helps
very low power requirements
i run as much as i can off of a small off grid solar system so getting the job done with as little power as needed is a consideration for me and this box dose it
because i do like my 38" TV at 1080p used as a screen
in my bedroom for NetFlix and all other on line needs (banking youtube email paying bills and research for kids homework)
this boxe dose it and I also have one of these boxes in living room for family use
this thing sips power compared to even my AMD A6-5400k system that has basic components
i picked up the second one of these as a open box idem for cheep and it will be replacing my AMD 5600k system
and the HDMI works perfect when using the TV sound

Cons: not any
i know what a Chrome Box can and can not do and it fulfills my needs 100%

Other Thoughts: research if this is your first chrome box or chrome book and know what you are buying
the chrome box/chrome book are for 99% web base uses and will do just about any thing on line you need to do
+ if you need It will do some lite office work and text docs
as of right now to my Knowledge the chrome system will not access a DVD with DRM for playing DVD's so if you are looking for a full fledged Media pc a Chrome device may not be for you
but i do use one as a media pc and 99% of all my media pc needs are netflix movies and YouTube and i do have the Corsair Gaming Audio Series SP2500 High-power 2.1 PC Speaker System in living room and i love it
but second box is on TV in bedroom just using TV sound

AMD FX-9590 Vishera 8-Core 4.7GHz Socket AM3+ 220W Desktop Processor - Black Edition FD9590FHHKWOF
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: no it is not as fast as the new top dog intell but it is 1/4th the cost and allowed us to invest in to a 980 extreme GPU
saying a AMD FX9590 is slow is like saying a 11sec car is slow because your car is a 10.5 sec car
and the 8core FX 9590 will run any game out there for years to come even on the 28" 4k monitor

Cons: 220w cpu

Other Thoughts: excellent choice for a build with limited funds
we decided to go with the FX9590 32gig ram and a new ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980 AMP! Extreme and it was worth it to say below the $2000 limit for the build
the new Intell chip would have cost us another $500

Cooler Master Hyper D92 - CPU Air Cooler with Dual 92mm Offset Push-Pull Fans and Accelerated Cooling System
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: got this to mount on a FX 9590 and it keeps it very cool 55c under load and just above room temp under normal web use and video streeming very happy

Cons: may be a bit tall for some cases check you clearances befor buying

Other Thoughts: the mount was so easy to install on AM3+ bord will keep for a very long time
fans are not very loud
came with thermal past
with it strat up desine should clear any tall memmory heat sinks
and if nead fane removal is very easy they just clip on
also if need or want you can use with single fan setup
