MSI AM1I AM1 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Nightmare to keep working. 06/06/2016

This review is from: MSI AM1I AM1 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Price was fair and the mini card slot was great for a salvaged Bluetooth/wireless card that was just laying around.

Cons: Cannot keep it working for more than an hour and a half without crashing. No temp problems whatsoever, but constant handler exception errors. After any driver update the machine locks up and requires reformatting and installing windows from scratch repairs fail every time. All things point to driver problems, but there is no consistency with which drivers are causing the problem. Using and SDD and can't find any errors with it. Might try reflashing BIOS since there isn't an updated one for mine and see if that helps.

Other Thoughts: When it works, it's great. Features are perfect. Handles multiple pptx, video and audio ques no problem

Rosewill RS-MI-01 BK - Mini ITX Tower / Desktop Computer Case - 250W Power Supply with Two (2) SATA Connectors and One (1) 20 + 4-Pin Connector
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fits in tight spaces
Good ventilation
Decent cable management (especially for a mini-itx)
Included PSU worked and more than adequate

Cons: None really

Other Thoughts: Making one of the 3.5" bays a 2.5" and a slight increase of overall height of .25" would make this case near perfect.

The increased height would allow for more airflow between CPU cooler and PSU (it's pretty tight in there), but in all honesty; I'm running a 5350 with a stock cooler with no additional cooling with zero heating issues.

The additional height would make for better cable management as well.

Seriously though, it's a good deal for a simple low power htpc and that's it.

AMD A8-7600 Kaveri Quad-Core 3.1 GHz Socket FM2+ 65W AD7600YBJABOX Desktop Processor AMD Radeon R7

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: All else being equal, better then the work i3 w/ integrated graphics by far!
AutoCad, Graphics rendering, AV editing much better with this CPU.

Cons: 2 physical cores?

Other Thoughts: Seeing this on every A8 and A10 APU in windows 10 they are indicates as 2 physical cores and 4 logical. Are these being misread by the OS? The old phenoms and FX's are showing 4 and 6 physical cores. Little confused. Most of the literature and benchmarks are indicating this as a quad.
