LIAN LI PC-Q25B Black Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Good, little box 10/27/2013

This review is from: LIAN LI PC-Q25B Black Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case

Pros: Very small
Good layout
Hard drive cage

Cons: Very tight fit for power supply, especially where the power cables come out. It is .25" or less from the hard drive cage.

No USB or reset switch on the front.

The side panels are not fastened down by screws, but are held in place by these cheap snaps.

Other Thoughts: I really like the case. If they fixed the cons above, it would be the perfect NAS case.

GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-D3H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Integrated HDMI and DVI ports for dual screens
SATA and other motherboard connectors in good locations

Cons: BIOS requires Windows to update

Other Thoughts: I really like this board. However, GIGABYTE only makes their BIOS updates available in Windows executable format, e.g. ".exe" extension. This oversight prevents me and every other GIGABYTE motherboard user from updating the BIOS when running any operating system other than Windows. Needless to say, I will not be purchasing any GIGABYTE motherboards in the future and must recommend that all Linux users look elsewhere for their motherboards needs.

ASUS AT5NM10T-I Intel Atom D525 (1.8GHz, Dual-Core) Intel NM10 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Dual core 1.8GHz Atom processor
4 SATA ports with AHCI support
Onboard Gigabit Ethernet
Passive cooling
Works with my PicoPSU

Cons: SODIMM RAM (especially when there is enough real estate to have standard DIMMs).
RAM clock is VERY low at 800MHz.

Other Thoughts: I bought the board for a NAS system to replace my Netgear ReadyNAS Duo. Everything is working perfectly under Ubuntu, and is 4x faster on NFS transfers.
