ASRock N3150-ITX Intel Quad-Core Processor N3150 (up to 2.08 GHz) Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: no fans -so its quiet. has enough sata/usb ports. not the fastest thing ever, but is adequate for the HTPC i built around it.
mythbuntu runs fine once a few tweaks were made (see cons). records ,transcodes, and displays HD video without issues.

Cons: had to disable the ASmedia SATA controller in bios. it was causing random lockups ... ;which is ok because i only needed 2 drives anyways (a boot drive and a storage drive).

Other Thoughts: i would recommend this to anyone looking to build a budget pc/HTPC. just remember to disable the asmedia SATA ports in bios. they may work in windows, i wouldn't know.

Pros: reasonably small with room for a blue-ray player and a 3.5" hard drive. good looking and gets the job done. PSU fan is very quiet.

Cons: exhaust fan is LOUD, like a jet engine loud. its in the living room and i can hear it in my bedroom (other side of the house) if i leave the bedroom door open.

Other Thoughts: overall not too bad. running wires was a chore, i just unplugged the exhaust fan, it wasnt doing anything to help cool anyways.
using a 6W minitix board with a WD black drive for storage , and a ssd (mythbuntu) taped to the PSU. works great for a media center/dvr .

Pros: i can now run virtual machines without swapping. runs flawlessly

Cons: minor con: had to set the speed in bios, the bios defaulted to its lowest speed.

Other Thoughts: upgraded form 10GB RAM to this 16GB. may purchase another 16GB if the need arises.
