Zotac ZBOX-BI320-U-W2 Desktop PC Celeron 2957U (1.40GHz) 2GB DDR3 64GB mSATA SSD Windows 8.1 with Bing, 64-bit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Small
Silent
Comes with Win 8
Comes with SSD

Cons: Not a beefy CPU
Wish it came with Win 7
2 GB RAM- 4 would be optimal

Other Thoughts: Got this on promo for $140. Great price for what you get. I used this as a HTPC to watch Plex and live/recorded TV with Windows Media Center connected to a TV.

WMC costs extra on Win 8 which is annoying. Had an extra copy of Win 7 and installed it instead. The SSD has no OS installed so you will need to either install Win 8 with the included CD using an external DVD drive or install whatever OS you have on hand.

There is a fan in the unit but it is very quiet, even if both cores are running 100%.

2 GB works ok but 4 GB would be optimal. Didn't notice any issues for my usage.

Handles 1080p mkv files just fine through Plex. I would not use this as an HTPC to handle transcoding though. I have an i5 that handles that .

CORSAIR Hydro Series H100 (CWCH100/RF) Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Fits nicely if your case has a designated space for a 240 mm water cooler

Cons: Loud pump initially. Corsair replaced and it works fine now.

Other Thoughts: To the poster who says this cooler "does not fit in a mid-ATX case". It does fit in one if your case is designed to handle a 240mm water cooler.

I have this in a Corsair 500R which has a space for a water cooler at the top of the case. Makes for a very easy and clean install. The Corsair 500R is a mid-size ATX case.

People interested in getting one of these types of coolers should check their case first. If your case does not have a designed space for a 240mm water cooler then you may run into issues with the install depending on case/motherboard layout.

SeaSonic SSR-650RM 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Quiet when it worked.

Cons: Died in less than a year.
Eating the shipping cost to RMA it.

Other Thoughts: This is my 3rd Seasonic PSU. My other two have worked flawlessly for years and I didn't expect any less from this PSU. I bought this when it was on sale and had it sitting on a shelf for a couple months before putting this in a HTPC with an i5-4670k cpu. Worked fine for 4 months.

One night the computer was off and simply would not turn on. Check all the cables, outlets, etc. Tried to jump start the PSU using a paper clip as instructed by Seasonic. Would not turn on. Eventually took out the PSU and put in a backup PSU. HTPC turned on so it was definitely the PSU that went bad.

In the process of RMA with Seasonic. Asked for them to pay for shipping since the unit died so quickly. CSR ignored me.

If this is what Seasonic considers "customer service" I'm not shelling out a premium to buy their PSUs anymore.
