BIOSTAR H81MHV3 LGA 1150 Intel H81 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great for a server board. Can fit a RAID card and a lan/wan/or tuner card.
USB 3.0 ports.
RAM slots are front to back for better airflow in small cases.
Installed Haswell refresh CPU with no problem

Cons: Will not fit some ITX cases.

At this price it is hard to fault it on anything. You can't expect more for the price. Best ITX non Z board you can buy right now. Just make sure you can fit the extra 20mm.

Other Thoughts: This is not a Micro ATX, this is an extended ITX board. It is an ITX board with just enough space to fit a second PCIe slot. 190mm x 170mm. (ATX specs for ITX boards is 170mmx170mm)

Have this installed in a "Athena Power RM-2UD220S40" 2U short depth server chassis. With G3250, 8GB RAM, Dell H310, 6x 4TB, 2 x SSD.

Rosewill RCHD-12003 10 ft. Black Ultra Slim HDMI Cable w/ RedMere Technology
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very thin
Easy to bend
Light weight

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Just remember when your going up to the new HDMI standard that there maybe some extra features you don't and will need to turn off. The HDMI's new remote control feature turns my HTPC on and off with the TV automatically that could potentially corrupt some files. Also I would rather the HTPC go into a S3 sleep state for much quicker start ups. It took me a bit to figure out it was the new standard of cable and to turn off the feature.

CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 15000) Desktop Memory Model CMZ16GX3M2A1866C10

Pros: 8GB sticks are great. Run and stated speeds with zero stability or compatibility issues.

Get 8GB sticks so that upgrading to a full 32GB is possible. Then use a RAMDisk for HDD cache or install your favorite game on it for instant loading.

Cons: My Z77 motherboard didn't detect the right settings for the RAM automatically. May be a missed function of the motherboard or the RAM.

Other Thoughts: BIOS sets these to 1333Mhz on auto. Switch it to XMP settings and it configures properly.

Haven't overclocked them yet so no comments on stability.

Glad I picked these up when I did seems like the price is more than double now. Is it the China plant fire? Ramping down of DDR3 to prepare for DDR4 or what.
