ECS KBN-I/5200 AMD A6-5200 Quad Core processor Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo

4 out of 5 eggs Snappy HTPC on a Tight (Power) Budget 01/12/2014

This review is from: ECS KBN-I/5200 AMD A6-5200 Quad Core processor Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo

Pros: - Complete HTPC packaged board
- 25W TDP
- Great graphics capability for HTPC
- Stock fan is relatively quiet (I upgraded see Other Thoughts)

Cons: - mSATA compatability with Muskin mSATA SSD

I took off one star in the rating since I couldn't get the mSATA to work with my Mushkin SSD. I'll investigate if ECS will help on this one.....

Any ideas ECS?

Other Thoughts: Nice clean build with only the ODD's power and SATA cables.


Components:

- ECS KBN-I/5200 miniITX /w A6-5200 APU
- Habey EMC-800B Black 3mm aluminum Server Chassis
- Kingston HyperX blu 4GB KHX1600C9D3B1/4G DDR3-1600MHz CL9 DIMM
- PICOPSU-120-WI-25 12-25V DC-DC ATX Power Supply
- Fractal Design Silent Series 50mm Ultra Quiet Cooling Fan 3500RPM (case cooling)
- Fractal Design Silent Series R2 40mm Fan (upgraded CPU fan)
- Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series MKNSSDAT240GB-DX mSATA 240GB SSC (but i had to use a StarTech SAT2MSAT25 2.5in SATA to Mini SATA SSD Adapter Enclosure since the mSATA slot wouldn't recognize the SSD)
- LG Blu Ray ODD Model CT21N
- Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate

The upgraded fans create a practically silent HTPC.

Win 7 WEI:
Processor - 6.2 (not bad for a 25 Watt CPU!)
RAM - 5.9
Aero - 6.2
Gaming Graphis - 6.2
SSD - 7.8
