Foxconn D180S Intel Dual Core Celeron J1800 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs Mixed Feelings - Not Terrible 12/03/2014

This review is from: Foxconn D180S Intel Dual Core Celeron J1800 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo

Pros: -About 14 watts idle, 34watts idle with three hard drives and solid state. Great for 24/7 File server
-Small size
-Price is right on the dot for the quality
-Practicaly silent

Cons: -No USB 3.0 header
-Bios is terrible to get windows 7 working on this board
-Bios Fan PWM control doesn't seem responsive.
-Only two sata ports, I had to use an add on card to get four.
-Would have preferred a larger heatsink with fanless design

Other Thoughts: Running this with 2GB memory for a fileserver. Can be a little slow but not unbearable. I would get this again if I have to go cheap as possible but I have never been a fan of Foxconn motherboards.

I am running this with a SY-PEX40039 sata card to use more drives. No issues at all.

Cooler Master Elite 431 Plus - Mid Tower Computer Case with Windowed Side Panel and USB 3.0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: -Cases with mesh fronts are the only cases I buy
-Case supports USB 3
-Love the motherboard mounts, some have a lip so you can mount the board and have the case hold it before putting the screws in.

Cons: -No where to mount a Solid State Drive so I took off an egg
-Only one USB 3?
-No side vent
-Side panel has no tint
-Cable management is minimal-average

Other Thoughts: Overall I would use this case again but there are a few things that I feel need to be changed.
