3 out of 5 eggs Mini ITX computer build project 02/27/2013

This review is from: Foxconn D250S Intel Atom D2500 Intel NM10 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo

Pros: Compact, CPU included, got special deal for 49.99 free shipping. Just stick it in the case.

Cons: Only two SATA ports, PCI slot, not the fastest CPU, but serviceable. One note of caution: Don't try and install Linux Mint 14 or later. It is not PAE compatible and won't install. I'll just upgrade to a different MOBO/CPU combo when I want.

Other Thoughts: Used this MOBO at a great price (49.99 free shipping) in my first mini itx computer build. Built a family computer. Installed this mini itx MOBO/CPU combo, hard drive, and optical drive with Linux Mint 12 LDXE, 32 bit. The only hang-up, due to my own inexperience, was attaching the case's front panel connectors to this MOBO. There isn't a reset button and stupid me, I connected the PSU fan connector to the MOBO. I must have stared at that MOBO for 45 minutes trying to find out why it wouldn't boot. Disconnected my dumb mistake, presto...it worked! I'm pretty proud of doing something I never did before, so I took pics of it and sent it out to my friends, who obviously understand that I have total geek written all over me. Oh well. Life is short. I would also add that when running Linux Mint 12 LDXE, this processor on this board runs probably as a netbook would. It's no speed demon and DVD's don't play the greatest, so don't use the MOBO as a home entertainment unit. It does what I want...it's surfing the internet, helping me burn CD's and DVD's, prints, and more. One note of caution: Don't try and install Linux Mint 14 or later. It is not PAE compatible and won't install. I'll just upgrade to a different MOBO/CPU combo when I want. Then again, I got everything on Newegg for $165.00, shipped. For a family computer for $165.00, you can't beat that with a stick.

Other Thoughts: Used this great optical drive at a great price in my first mini itx computer build. Built a family computer.
