Foxconn R20-i4100 Intel Atom Processor D2700 2.13GHz Intel NM10 Intel HD Graphics 1 x HDMI Barebone
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: The case has rolled edges, good air flow, and is compatible with many low profile mini-ITX boards.
The power supplies last a good long time.
Fans are quiet and also last a long time.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: In truth I really just wanted the case. I've used variations on this case for several years and the air flow and arrangement work for many solutions. Newegg didn't list the case separately and other sites were selling the bare case for ridiculous prices.

I've used other small form factor cases, and each one had their good points and bad points. This case for me has the best balance of good to bad.

The most significant "bad" point is that the optical drive extends too deep within the case and any processor that uses a non-low profile heat sink and fan the optical drive will hit it. If this case were lengthened by at least a half an inch to maybe an inch it would make the case near perfect.

I bought two of these systems pulled the motherboard (Foxconn D270S, an eighty dollar board), and replaced it with the ASUS C8HM70-I/HDMI MB I bought. A perfect fit and 64 bit compatible.

I'm likely to keep these cases for many years to come and just replace the components.

ASUS C8HM70-I/HDMI Intel Celeron BGA1023 Intel HM70 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Everything I've stated before. Plus Windows 8.1 detects all components and easily installs the drivers.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Since my first review I've bought a couple more of these boards. I got a slightly better WEI on the next board with a 3.9 processor rating (and obviously that was from a Win7 installation since MS has removed this feature from Win 8.1).

I'll probably not buy another one though, because the Celeron 1007U mini-ITX boards are about twice as fast for just a little money.

  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Works

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Combined with an ASUS C8HM70-I/HDMI (found on newegg).

Scored a Windows Experienced Index of 5.9 on that board.
