Turtle Beach TBS-1150-01 Virtual 5.1 Surround Channels USB Interface Analog & Digital Audio Adapter
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It's still supported with an up to date driver. Install is quite easy if you follow the PDF instructions from the zip file.

According to my Onkyo TX-DS787 display panel it passes Dolby Digital audio through the optical SPDIF not Dolby Pro Logic I was getting before.

Cons: None so far.

ASRock FM2A88X-ITX+ FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Well thought out design. Everything seems to work correctly. This being my first build in over 4 years so it's nice to have WiFi and bluetooth onboard.

Cons: Not a real con to knock off a star. I bought a motherboard not a driver DVD, but really ASRock, the DVD was unreadable in three >3< different DVD drives, one drive I ordered the same day as the motherboard. The only thing that could be read were the utilities so I had to download the drivers from the slow as (expletive) ASRock web site, only to find the allin1 drivers were Catalyst 8 AMD drivers.
Over TWO hours to download drivers!

Other Thoughts: If you get no video from first boot you don't have the RAM seated correctly, even though it looks like its in it's not.

Use the ASRock A-Tuning program to read temperatures, not a downloaded monitor program so you don't freakout and spend $50+ on a aftermarket CPU cooler that probably isn't needed. Right now A-Tuning is showing 93F and HWmonitor is showing 139F.

ASRock, find someone else to duplicate you driver DVDs.

AMD A10-6700 Richland Quad-Core 3.7GHz Socket FM2 65W AD6700OKHLBOX Desktop Processor AMD Radeon HD
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Integrated graphics. No need for a seperate video card.
Runs cool and quiet with stock heatsink and fan. No need for aftermarket cooler.
Cheap.

Cons: It's not free.

Other Thoughts: The A10-6700 is being used in a HTPC. Even running a high action movie like Total Recall (2012) according to CPUID HWMonitor Pro the CPU never gets over 120 degrees. Idle it stays about 90 degrees. I'm quite happy I chose AMD over Intel.
