ECS NM70-I v1.0 Intel Celeron 1037U 1.80GHz BGA1023 Intel NM70 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: No issues at all. Low power consumption but still able to keep up with CPU demanding tasks.

CPU fan cannot be heard, not sure if it ever turns on or is just quiet.

Thinking of buying another for a HT-PC.

Cons: Limited expansion, but alas you should already have that expectation prior to purchase. It is fantastic given its limited size and resources.

Other Thoughts: This is being used an ESXi 5.5 host running 3 VMs (FreeNAS, Win2012, RHEL). Works great as long as you understand the limitations of a dual core low frequency processor and 8GB of RAM, planning for these limitation are critical especially when virtualizing machines.

The FreeNAS VM downloads content and shares it. Win2012 picks up on the content and converts it to a specific format (CPU intensive) then replaces the origional file with the converted one. RHEL is just for keeping up to date with the OS.

Its a great little board which I recommend to anyone looking for low power machines.

ASUS GeForce GTX 260 DirectX 10 ENGTX260 MATRIX/HTDI/896MD3 896MB 448-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Performs amazingly well. Overclocks to perform faster then the top of the line nvidia cards. Great fans and heatsink keep it well within temps.

Itracker software is an awesome resource. I have my card turn off its fans when in 2d mode (once at low temps) and it sits at about 48C. so its a silent GTX 260.

Cons: The asus Itracker software does not like Windows 7 very much and has a hard time changing between 2d and 3d settings, sometimes causing problems (crashed once or twice).

Without the itracker software the card is super loud.

5 out of 5 eggs Awesome sound 01/30/2009

This review is from: HT | OMEGA STRIKER 7.1 Channels PCI Interface Sound Card

Pros: DTS and DD encoding, ease of operation, set it and forget it. Excellent for gaming and movies. DTS works awesome, DD is almost as good. Customer support is amazing. i emailed on a Saturday with some questions and got an email back on Sunday afternoon.

Cons: The software is a bit lack luster but i dident get it for the software features. I wish it had a crossover feature for the sub, or some other things but i will live.

Other Thoughts: I have it connected via optical to a Arcam AVR300 receiver, and some NHT classic three speakers. The sound is great from the sound card but would prefer a crossover for the sub channel .
