GIGABYTE GA-F2A88XN-WIFI FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX AMD Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great board. Everything works. Mine had F2 bios (support for FM2+ processors).

Cons: Fear of not have at least F2 bios already I bought a Richland APU instead of Kaveri. Actually glad I did. The A6-6400k does everything I need it to do.

Other Thoughts: I used this with a A6-6400k processor for a htpc running Fedora 20, MythTV 0.27, and XBMC 13 Gotham using open source Radeon drivers for video acceleration and bitstreaming DTS-HD & TrueHD.

I have traditionally used Intel processors and sometimes added Nvidia graphics cards for smooth playback using VAAPI or VDPAU acceleration. VAAPI doesn't work great in MythTV. I wanted to play around with an AMD setup and I am glad I did. Very smooth playback and no tearing. HD Audio works perfect as well. I had a i3-2100 & i3-3225 setup before this one and this is a lot better for HTPC on Linux.
