Pros: It's an Ivy Bridge CPU, for a low price, and with a low TDP.
Cons: Not the fastest, but you knew that already. If used in a Plex media server, transcoding performance will be disappointing.
Other Thoughts: This CPU is in my home NAS, which uses a Linux mdraid RAID10. It keeps up just fine. Paired with a low-end discrete GPU, this would be perfect for an HTPC.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 Dual Band N600 PCIe adapter, External antenna
Pros: It's an Intel wireless card, with a great (but unusual looking) antenna. Good performance on both bands
Cons: The 2.4 and 5GHz antenna connectors are not labeled on the bracket.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock H77 Pro4/MVP LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: If you are cost-conscious and are building an Ivy Bridge-based computer, this is the board to use. Everything you need, nothing you don't, and laid out in a logical way. Plenty of fan connectors, as well, and ASRock's software makes it easy to manage them.
Cons: No eSATA connector on the back, but there are eight SATA connectors, so this issue is rectified with a cheap adapter.
Other Thoughts: New BIOS updates fix many issues.
Replacing the CMOS battery requires removing the card in the first PCI-E x16 slot.
