Solid for Freenas

SUPERMICRO MBD-A1SAi-2750F-O Mini ITX Server Motherboard with Intel Atom C2750 FCBGA1283
SUPERMICRO MBD-A1SAi-2750F-O Mini ITX Server Motherboard with Intel Atom C2750 FCBGA1283

Pros: Outstanding performance, running Plex with no issues streaming to mobile, home at the same time. I've managed about 6 connections at once with no slowdown (direct stream on at least 3 of em).

Cons: IKVM was wonky at first but you get use to it. The heat from this little 8 core beast is a bit more than I thought. Looking to put a small fan on it for peace of mind.

Most Critical Review

Gets crazy hot

SanDisk 32GB Ultra Fit CZ43 USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Speed Up to 150MB/s (SDCZ43-032G-GAM46)
SanDisk 32GB Ultra Fit CZ43 USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Speed Up to 150MB/s (SDCZ43-032G-GAM46)

Pros: About what I expected. Small portable storage, reasonably priced

Cons: This thing gets hot. I'm tempted to make a video showcasing this thing melting through a stick of butter after being used.

Overall Review: Unable to get this to work with my server for Freenas on my 3.0 or 2.0 ports. I'll just stick with the old 2.0 usb drives for now.

Who is TIM and why does Intel not like him

Intel Core i7 7th Gen - Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake Quad-Core 4.2 GHz LGA 1151 91W BX80677I77700K Desktop Processor
Intel Core i7 7th Gen - Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake Quad-Core 4.2 GHz LGA 1151 91W BX80677I77700K Desktop Processor

Pros: CPU stable like a boss, OC fantabulous

Cons: TIM is horrid, delid / replace for huge drop in temps.

I would let board take me to prom

ASRock Fatal1ty Z270 Gaming K6 LGA 1151 Intel Z270 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Motherboards - Intel

Pros: Not a beta board (looking at you Ryzen). Memory OC worked out the box, CPU OC couldn't have been easyer.

Cons: Odd quirk with Gskill trident Z RGB make lighting control ignore your ram if not in slots A1/B1

Overall Review: After fighting with my Ryzen ASUS board for months I gave up and jumped ship to intel. Never looking back at ASUS. This was a fire and forget no trouble board.

Had some issues but worked through them

EKWB EK Fluid Gaming A240G Complete Dual 120mm Water / Liquid Cooling Kit 240mm with EK-AC GeForce GTX Pascal GPU Block
EKWB EK Fluid Gaming A240G Complete Dual 120mm Water / Liquid Cooling Kit 240mm with EK-AC GeForce GTX Pascal GPU Block

Pros: Kit is easy as heck to settup. First loop here. Cooling for a 1080 and 7700k (delided) was great. CPU understress ~58c GPU under stress 40c

Cons: My particular block had issues touching my GPU (98c eww). After some vigorous support through discord I installed a few more washers to force the card closer to the block. After adding 3 paper washers (in every cheap screwdriver set), temps are 40c under load. BIG thumbs up to Igor, Miguel and all the wonderful people in EKWB discord.

Overall Review: The inwin 303 will have some clearance issues if you mount the radiator on the front. Consider angled fittings once they become available.

4Ghz OC ! Great so far

AMD Ryzen 7 1st Gen - RYZEN 7 1700 Summit Ridge (Zen) 8-Core 3.0 GHz (3.7 GHz Turbo) Socket AM4 65W YD1700BBAEBOX Desktop Processor
AMD Ryzen 7 1st Gen - RYZEN 7 1700 Summit Ridge (Zen) 8-Core 3.0 GHz (3.7 GHz Turbo) Socket AM4 65W YD1700BBAEBOX Desktop Processor

Pros: Great bang for buck. I do a ton of video transcoding and this thing destroys my old 4790k in that realm. Gaming is acceptable, no complaints at 4Ghz.

Cons: The included fan will rip this chip out of the board! After setting my system for a pre-install check I wanted to remove the stock cooler and replace it with my AIO. I should have wiggled more and managed to pull the chip out with the cooler. All was fine when I put the chip back in and re applied the leaver. Was still a shock, that stock thermal compound is strong.

Overall Review: Don't waist money on the 1700x or 1800x this will hit 4Ghz just fine Small update: choose your board carefully. Chip seems ok but that ASUS Hero was an issue.

Slow and unresponsive

I ordered a fairly simple and small adapter for $10. I'm a very patient person and this item really isn't that important but waiting nearly a month for shipping seems absurd (2 days short at the moment), especially with no tracking. To make matters worse, I contacted Face to face a week ago and have had no response. All I wanted was an accurate tracking number, I've tried the one they gave me on DHL, USPS, UPS, FEDEX, 17track, yunexpress with none of them recognizing it. Ordered 1/3/2016 Email saying it Shipped 1/5/2016 Contacted about shipping 1/25/2016 Still haven't received it as of 1/31/2016 Will update with new information when it arrives. At the moment, this seller is on my personal blacklist.
