This review is from: APEX MI-110 Black / Silver Steel Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case 250W Power Supply
Pros: Not much to say, small mITX case.
Cons: PSU placement doesn't provide enough clearance/room for proper air flow with a stock cpu cooler. Causes high cpu tempts. See other thoughts.
egg off for that
Other Thoughts: Highly recommend this cooler if you are using an AMD stock cpu cooler: Akasa Low Profile AMD CPU Cooler - Mini-ITX and Micro-ATX (AK-CC1101EP02)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Runs fine now.
Cons: Took egg off b/c it was the first time I have had to strictly purchase memory off Asrock's memory supported list for this mobo. I have always in the past, picked any memory and had zero issues up til now.
Had memory incompatibility issues causing numerous boot issues.
Other Thoughts: Well, tip my had to Asrock for honoring warranty. Had to RMA 3 times.
For this APEX MI-110 case that I used, highly recommend this cooler: Akasa Low Profile AMD CPU Cooler - Mini-ITX and Micro-ATX (AK-CC1101EP02)
Pros: see Cons...
Cons: Cannot get BIOS to post. I've been getting advice from forums, friends, youtube videos, etc. No matter what, I get no video signal on all display interfaces (VGA, DVI, HDMI). I removed the mobo out of the case with only one stick of memory, 24 pin power, and 4 pin power cable, still nothing. When I plug in keyboard or ethernet cable, they are not getting power.
I have already RMA once, same exactly problem!?!? Having to RMA a second time.
I love the specs on this board but unfortunately this is one of the last mITX FM1 boards available.
