GIGABYTE GA-Z87N-WIFI LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Nice high quality board. Great WiFi.

Cons: Does not work with Windows Vista or older OS. Iwas going use a spare Windows Vista for the HTPC. After the board would not install, I looked at the fine print: W7 or later.

Other Thoughts: The Intel i3 graphics are not suitable for HTPC. I had to add a graphics card for satisfactory results. Thankfully the board had a expansion slot.

Pros: Runs at 40 dec C when streaming Hulu or APrime. The stock cooler is quiet so far. I can hear the HD over the fan!

Cons: Not sure if it's the on-board graphics, but the "blacks" are not as contrasty as the AMD APU (Richland) this is replacing. In a dark movie scene, it gets that pixelated look in the shadows. I don't recall the AMD having this issue. I will continue to work with the settings.

Other Thoughts: The AMD unit fried which is why I love this cool running Intel. The AMD APU required an aftermarket cooler to hear the TV. The stock intel cooler seems good as-is.
