ASUS Q87M-E/CSM LGA 1150 Intel Q87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Great for a long term relationshipe 12/26/2013

This review is from: ASUS Q87M-E/CSM LGA 1150 Intel Q87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: @xPS/2 These are getting harder to find. This works well if your PC is not in the same room and are running 10 m of cable.

Intel NIC - Vpro

Simple set up.

Great layout.

Cons: I had to adjust some timings on RAM.

Other Thoughts: This is a solid board when you are looking to settle down and do real work without hassle.

Not sexy, but feels like a board you would want to meet your parents.

MSI N640GT-MD1GD3 GeForce GT 640 1GB DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: With a generous rebate, this card can't be beat for a high perf HTPC. MadVR, HD Audio, and the drivers are perfect.

Power efficient without the need for additional PCI power.

Cons: A full retail, a little over priced.

HIS H557HO1G Radeon HD 5570 1GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This card is unbeatable for the following req:

Powerful - 5xxx series offers great Vector de-interlacing.

0db - many good low profile cards, but they all make too much noise with small fans

Low profile

Cons: None considering my req. Would be nice if drivers were better, but no real complaints.

Other Thoughts: This card is probably the most powerful gpu that will fit into my mini-itx rig. There are better cards, but I needed a silent card to run in my HTPC that is low profile. This is strictly an HTPC and I don't game on it.
