this time no DOA

ASUS Sabertooth X58 LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS Sabertooth X58 LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: This is my second time to build i7 system with Sabertooth X58 Motherboard. No DOA !!! I don't feel SATA6 connection will help speed up. With WD640GB Sata 6.0G/s HD, Windows 7 still rate 5.9 point same as my old 3.0G/s one.

Cons: PCI slot can't use after install my HD6850 video card. too bad that I can't use my PCI SB0460 X-Fi sound card. If Asus can make one PCI to all the way end will be batter to help people who wants to use PCI card.

Most Critical Review

Random Reboot

BIOSTAR A68I-350 Deluxe R2.0 AMD Fusion APU 350D AMD A68 Mini ITX Motherboard / CPU Combo
BIOSTAR A68I-350 Deluxe R2.0 AMD Fusion APU 350D AMD A68 Mini ITX Motherboard / CPU Combo

Pros: 6GB/s speed SATA, 1000 speed Lan, Low power consumption HDMI output Newegg should take a 5 EGG of the 5 star service.

Cons: motherboard don't run stable, auto random reboot during use in normal temp whatever using Win7 or XP. After reboot won't detect any HDD.

Overall Review: I have updated bios, change some bios setting from SATA option to IDE or AHCI, but it won't help.

Little but good to go for HTPC

GIGABYTE GA-C847N-D Intel Celeron 847 1.1GHz Intel NM70 Mini ITX Motherboard / CPU / VGA Combo
GIGABYTE GA-C847N-D Intel Celeron 847 1.1GHz Intel NM70 Mini ITX Motherboard / CPU / VGA Combo

Pros: This is my second build with this excellent motherboard. First for ipfire OS, second for HTPC. Both are working very good. Dual fast Lan, Excellent UEFI Bios with Fan control and detail than other MB. Running very well with windows 7 64bit. With intel HD video able to play 1080P only use 25%-50% CPU use. I am trying to install Mountain Lion OSX to it, but when play youtube video it got flashing screen.

Cons: I would like to use onboard SATA than eSATA. Hoping Gigabyte remove eSATA and add one more SATA onboard.

Because cutting your finger

DIYPC Black Acrylic / Steel HTPC-KT28B Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: Nice looks like a AMP or receiver, able to install full size video card or sound card. In fact, I could mount 2x3.5 HDD and 1x2.5HDD by using 3.5-2.5 HDD adapter.

Cons: the case is big enough for a full size PSU whey design for micro ATX PSU. What a bed idea. Not good if you like to build a gaming PC with a big power PSU. the mounting kit is not finished, very sharp of edge. BECAUSE your finger!

good with Tomatousb
