ASRock FM2A75M-ITX FM2 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Not many options for FM2 in mITX format. The WEFI firmware update function worked like a champ. Relatively easy to use.

Cons: The Motherboard was rather slow. It seemed to underclock the processor to 14x more often than desired. Then it died after 45 days.

Other Thoughts: It had been working fine (although slow) for a month and a half, on firmware 1.1, then I wanted to update the firmware to see if the performance improved. I did so, but performance did not improve. I turned the dehumdifier function on and rebooted, and everything was normal for a few hours. I put the machine to sleep, and woke up the next day and the system would not post. Took everything unessential out of the rig, still would not post. Switched PSU's (original was a seasonic, substitue was a coolermaster) and still nothing. Took it out of case, rinse and repeat, still nothing =(. I guess we will see what ASrock suppor has to say.

2 out of 5 eggs Worked great, until it didn't. 08/15/2012

This review is from: Rosewill RCI-401MS 400W DC To AC Power Inverter with one 2.1A USB Port

Pros: Not huge, and did the job mostly. I used this in the car for powering a 15" MacBook pro and an iPad or iPhone on the go. It worked mostly but was at the upper end of its power draw capability, which at 400w stated it should not be.

Cons: After about 6-8 months the fan would die and it would make horrible beeping noises and turn off...
