Pros: I have purchased over the years quite a few EVGA NVidia Video Cards and they work quite well. I have purchased a few PSUs too and they also work quite well. So without checking Newegg Reviews as I normally do I bought his baby and installed it on a new Asrock MB 7th Generation with a low level CPU also 7th Gen. and a low lever video card to be my new accounting machine but of course with the ability to be upgraded simply by swapping out the existing CPU and Video card to more powerful items. My user errors as I not normally do modular were that I did not try installation of the cables into the PSU far away from the machine to ensure good fit before I allowed the PSU and the modular cables near the machine being built. But despite difficulties rectifying problems in getting the cables fully inserted into the PSU on my mini itx all worked well.
The end result is quiet and stable after multiple stress tests many more than I normally do . Recommended.

Cons: I was terrified to read the negative reviews. I do not see any note on the review pages that EVGA has rectified whatever is wrong.
Now this machine is happily doing low level but most important accounting work 24 hours per day with multiple users. Many users merely want data and do not input. Perhaps I will have to drive to the office in the middle of the night to swap in a new PSU? Should I buy a cheaper VEGA PSU as a back up for that eventuality?

Other Thoughts: I formally demand that EVEGA give us some figures. Like % returned over % sold and so forth. Have they fixed the problem?
If not why not? What are early warning signs we should look for? I need some facts to determine my course of action on this PSU working 24 hours per day for multiple users that will demand I drive to the office middle of night and replace!


5 out of 5 eggs Great 7th Gen. MB works well with low level CPU & Totally Eclipses Gen 6 MBs. 02/09/2017

This review is from: ASRock H270M-ITX/ac LGA 1151 Intel H270 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Motherboards - Intel

Pros: Received in good order well packaged from Newegg on time.
Within minutes had it up and running. I had one Mem. module and as instructions silent arbitrarily positioned & it worked.
I forgot to put a wire from PSU into the 12V socket and it not boot and no screen and no recognize keyboard.
Fixing this user error all was perfect. Have HUGELY stressed it over a few days and no issues.
The amazing thing is I installed a new Gen. 7 $40 Celeron CPU G3930. top 55% per PCPitstop Passmark score 3300 Turbo mode.
I added the new 2400 speed mem allowed, an old $50 Nvidia card and an old 3.5 slow HD. PCPitstop top 28%! wow!
I think the MB and CPU being able to use the 2400 speed mem has a lot to do with the superior performance of the combo.
The bios is also without issue but is very simple. I have a very fast X99 CPU on a more expensive Asrock MB I heavily overclock. This MB not meant for that.
Be sure to buy the inexpensive devices to attach to the two USB headers and use with multiple IP address intake as allowed.
If using with low level CPU consider the G4560 at $60 too. See the Techspot article.
I want to thank Asrock for this product just about perfectly tuned as received. Last MB from them worked fine too but after about 20 hours tuning it up by hand over a few weeks by trial and error.

Cons: Perfect given the price. Sure better OC but not at this price!

Other Thoughts: I recommend this in the context that the Gen 7 just out seems miles ahead of Gen 6 stuff. & more value for the buck.


Pros: Bought this from Newegg several months ago and paired it with an Xeon e5-1650 V3 and ASUS PIKE II 3008-8i SAS 12Gb/s .
It is highly stable, quiet, & overclocks the Xeon. A nice touch is the cheap pike I purchased from Newegg so I can run enterprise SAS 12 gb/s HDs in JBOD or raid for quality backup but Pike is not fast like the expensive Intel raid controllers with on board buffer. And be sure to purchase the 12gb/s one. The 6Gb/s one is obsolete!
The board works well under heavy loads. Yes Asus ATX on up boards are better choice if you have the room. It is a nice touch that the new just out bios supports the new E5 2600 and 1600 V4 CPUs. Recommended.

Cons: The M.2 low grade performance is sad! The board does not have IPMI. Purchasers using Xeon CPUs that want a different M2 slot & IPMI should consider the just out Supermicro x10SRm-F. I just bought one from Newegg and it works fine but does not have the capability to overclock e5-1600 CPUs.

Other Thoughts: Consider a faster raid controller with memory but they are very expensive and be sure to get 12gb/s capability.
