AMD Athlon 5350 Kabini Quad-Core 2.05GHz Socket AM1 25W AD5350JAHMBOX Desktop Processor AMD Radeon HD 8400
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Does work with Hauppauge capture cards on Windows 7. Under Kill a Watt monitor. (a standard ATX motherboard 270U processor with TDP of 25, running a 1 crucial SSD, heatsink 90mm, ATI 5350 pci-e card, 1 USB connected, and IMON display runs yearly at $165.00 56 watts and 58 volts idle.) (a Athlon 5350 on AM1H-ITX with 1 corsair force 60GB SSD, 50mm heatsink, Hauppauge 1850 single TV turner, 2x1033 ram 1.5volts, BluRay drive connected 19v 90w ac adapter is $73.58 a year, 24 watts average, 27 volts.
$60.44 a year without a 5.25” Bluray drive attached. 18-30% cpu usage when watching a tv show on the Hauppauge and playing Netflix at the same time. 33-34 watts used when recording one show and watching another.) Clearly beats the ATX with a 270U which carried the same TDP of 25.

Cons: basic heatsink seemed a little tall so went with Switched to GELID Solutions CC-Ssilence-AM1heatsink wider but shorter for low profile setup.

Other Thoughts: once i had loaded windows 7 it worked just fine playing and recording TV. Running both netflix and recording TV at the same time didn't make the CPU go any higher than 30% watts was surprising. with no overclocking.

5 out of 5 eggs works with Hauppauge capture cards 12/29/2014

This review is from: ASRock AM1H-ITX AM1 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 DC-In/ATX Power Input Mini ITX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Does work with Hauppauge capture cards on Windows 7. Under Kill a Watt monitor. (a standard ATX motherboard 270U processor with TDP of 25, running a 1 crucial SSD, heatsink 90mm, ATI 5350 pci-e card, 1 USB connected, and IMON display runs yearly at $165.00 56 watts and 58 volts idle.)

Bios update 1.4 has overclocking/under clocking options now.
Switched to GELID Solutions CC-Ssilence-AM1
Heatsink wider but shorter for low profile setup.

Cons: none really. After i fixed my mistakes.

Other Thoughts: Bios update 1.4 has overclocking/under clocking options now.
I would never setup a PC without a TV capture card. without it, it would seem pointless and lacking full capabilities. Does add wattage, height of the card can be eliminated by adding a riser and lying it horizontal.

GELID Solutions CC-Ssilence-AM1 Ball 1U Low Profile Cooler for AMD AM1 CPU Slim Silent Cooler 20/34cfm, 0.20A, 12V, 1200-2600RPM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Shorter than stock heatsink by about 15mm. which is the height of the stock fan. The heatsink is about 4 to 5mm taller than the I/O slot. run quiet at all speeds. If you want to save on 15mm of height this will be shorter than a stock AM1 heatsink

Cons: wider than the stock heatsink. which dissipates heat better but some people might not want a wide heatsink. fan is larger than stock heatsink fan 50mm verses 70mm
