ASRock N3150DC-ITX Intel Quad-Core Processor N3150 (up to 2.08 GHz) Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: So far, this board has done everything I've asked of it. It's great if you're using it in an embedded system: it runs cool, and is probably fine with completely fanless operation in a well-ventilated case.

It works great with Windows 10.

It even has HEVC decode support, at up to 1080p50/8bit.

Cons: The included power adapter can only power two SATA devices, and there are no traditional 4-pin power connectors.

The heatsink is a weird shape, so attaching a fan to it may be difficult.

Other Thoughts: An mSATA slot would have been nice.

You will need to either slipstream the USB drivers (ASrock provide a tool to do this) or use a PS/2 keyboard to install Windows 7.

Intel Pentium G2120 Ivy Bridge Dual-Core 3.1 GHz LGA 1155 BX80637G2120 Desktop Processor

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent for NAS, home server, etc. 03/11/2013

This review is from: Intel Pentium G2120 Ivy Bridge Dual-Core 3.1 GHz LGA 1155 BX80637G2120 Desktop Processor

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.
