TYAN S5533GM2NR-LE Mini ITX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel C222 DDR3 1600/1333/1066
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

2 out of 5 eggs I really want to keep, but... 07/24/2014

This review is from: TYAN S5533GM2NR-LE Mini ITX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel C222 DDR3 1600/1333/1066

Pros: -boots freenas (with I3 gen 4)

Cons: -IKVM - can't disable root or change password for root account
-second system fan runs at 100%, no matter what I tried (mobo has 4-wire fan jack, and my fan is 3 wire, but 1st system fan runs at 900 rpm, send at 1500 rpm - identical fans.

Other Thoughts: This is cheapest mini-itx mobo I found that support ECC and has 6 SATA ports for my nas4free or freenas build.

So far I don't have worm and fussy filling about this mobo. While it boots freenas - inability to change password for known iKVM root account is dealbraker.

Fan at 100% is another issue - probably solvable by paralleling 2 fans. Again - this is not type of corner-cutting I would like to do for 24/7 setup.

good luck with your build

ZALMAN CNPS2X 80mm Long Life Bearing CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -fits m350 case with ssd bracket
-relatively quiet

Cons: -lowest RPM setting on high end
-not much meat in the heatsink - high CPU usage causes high RPMs
-flat surface (touching CPU) shows marks, expected better finish, little unexpected.

Other Thoughts: initially installed stock cooler in m350 with i5 65W CPU.
it was noiseless on low setting, could not hear fan 5 inches away.

But - could not mount ssd bracket with stock cooler, so got this cooler.

It fits the case, no issues. But, probably due to rather high RPM in lowest setting, fan noise is there. Not a lot, but there, especially comparing to dead-quiet stock cooler.

Anyway, to make long story short - this is good-enough solution when you don't need to run your CPU at 100% 24/7. As soon as you load CPU - fan will go high RPMs, since there is no much copper in the heatsink.

Pros: works out of the box, decent price, signal level, supported by RaspBMC

Cons: Can't list any yet. Long-term viability to be seen

Other Thoughts: Got it as "smart TV', to play videos from synology. Good enough for this purpose. Supported by RaspBMC out of the box, nothing to load/upgrade.

Not AC model, but N provides enough bandwidth to stream from Synology 1080p 10GB mkv files.
