Overall Review: I used this to replace a MEDIATEK wifi/bluetooth card in a Zephyrus G14 that would not work in Fedora. Works great out of the box for both Fedora 34 and Windows 10!

Most Critical Review

Small and powerful but loud

ASRock AMD Ryzen Embedded CPU Barebone 4X4 BOX-V1000M SoC Dual GLAN Support Triple Displays Mini / Booksize Barebone System
ASRock AMD Ryzen Embedded CPU Barebone 4X4 BOX-V1000M SoC Dual GLAN Support Triple Displays Mini / Booksize Barebone System

Pros: cheap, small, fits nicely on a shelf

Cons: - the fan is very very loud and runs frequently

Overall Review: I had hoped to use this as a small HTPC running ubuntu 19.10. I slapped in 16gb of ram and a 500GB m.2 drive. Installing the parts was easy, setting it up and installing the OS went smooth as could be. But the fan is so loud and runs frequently. Even firing up a web browser causes the fan to kick into high gear and it sounds like a jet engine. Not good at all for a HTPC.

Incredibly quiet & keeps my case cool

Pros: - quiet - classic Noctua ugly brown

Cons: Maybe the color, to some

Overall Review: I have 2 of these in an NZXT h210. It's so quiet now, a nice addition to a great case. Personally, I really like the look. It's brown-on-brown color scheme is pretty much the antithesis of the blackout & RGB color schemes you see on most PCs.

Such a great motherboard

Pros: - USB-C & 3.2 front headers - 2 m.2 slots - So many bells & whistles! And the software seems decent to me so far. The ASUS AI noise cancelling is great

Cons: - Difficult to reach front audio header

Overall Review: This is my first gaming pc build and so far it's exceeded my expectations. I believe the B550 chipset will last me for years to come. I'm very impressed with the AI noise cancelling function, my computer is very close to a TV and very little background noise makes it through. It looks nice & doesn't have any built in RGB, but does have a header if that's something you want to add (pro to me)

Works great

Pros: Easy to use syringe, lots of paste in the tube.

Overall Review: Did what I needed, cheap, and enough for a couple applications

Nice fast drive

Overall Review: Decided to install a M.2 drive in a mini pc. It's fast and decently sized, works well with ubuntu.
