ASRock E350M1/USB3 AMD E-350 APU (1.6GHz, Dual-Core) AMD A50M Hudson M1 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Small, Compact
-Low Price, good deal for the right application
-Detailed BIOS, easy-to-use
-USB 3.0 and HDMI included

Cons: -No software (BIOS) RAID support -- this is kind of my fault for not checking on it from the start, but worth mentioning

-Only has 4x SATA3 ports...which get used up quickly -- again my bad for not thinking it through all the way

-Onboard CPU fan already starting to run louder after a week of use, which is a bit annoying.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to try to "save money" in an attempt to "not go overboard" like I usually would -- this is a good example of why I tend to (and ought to) go overboard. Due to the first two cons I listed above, I am having to upgrade to a different mobo and CPU after about a week of use. (Happily, this solves the problem of the third con.)

Cooler Master HAF XM - High Air Flow Mid Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0 and Two External Drive Docks

5 out of 5 eggs Perfect for ALL Applications (unless you want a small case) 03/30/2013

This review is from: Cooler Master HAF XM - High Air Flow Mid Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0 and Two External Drive Docks

Pros: This case is huge! (actually, quite a bit larger than I imagined it would be) -- space, space, and more space! Fans everywhere (included).

I bought it as a starter case for my "beginner build" home server project, but it will work for expansion for years, of this I have no doubt.

Cons: As it could be a pro OR a con depending on your application, this case is BIG, so please take it into consideration if you're looking for something on the smaller side.

Other Thoughts: Other than builds that require a very small footprint, I think I will always buy this case in the future.
