RAM recommendations? by RyanMcc
Looking at getting mb to replace/update my current HTPC rig. What RAM would you recommend - 2gb or 4gb options?
i would recommend 4gb
Bargain! by Tom
This motherboard has everything you need to build a htpc without the lag of an Atom based system. AMD have managed something pretty special with this chipset. Windows 7 rates the CPU at 3.9, Aero graphics at 3.9 and Gaming graphics at 5.6, which isn't too shabby. With the system fully assembled, it pulls no more than 55 watts under load and about 40 idling. The EFI BIOS is well designed, although Asus report that it's overclocking ability is limited - so far I haven't tried. Although they also include a little switch on the board, to activate Turbo Mode. Hardware wise, all the mod-cons are present: USB3, SATA3 etc, and well laid out on the board. Although Asus imply the fan for the heatsink is optional, I don't know how long the system would be stable for without it, though it doesn't make much noise. Other reveiws suggest the CPU utilisation is about 35-40% during blu-ray playback, which would be less than the 3.4Ghz P4 with HT that it is replacing! Graphics wise, the integrated Radeon 6310 is basically a 5450HD, which is no bad thing as far as I'm concerned.248 of 425 people rated this review as helpful
Question by Simon C
Dear Aria Folks
Does Vista support this mobo properly or looking at the other way does the board support Vista properly ?
If so this could nicely replace my current media PC !
ASUS provide drivers for Vista, so it should be fine.
Renderfarm? by RH
Hi, I previously asked if this would make a suitable 'render node'/'renderfarm', you asked what software. I model using Rhino3D, the render software is VRay for Rhino using 'distributed rendering', it communicates via network. if you believe this would work...
*do you think this would provide enough rendering power on a cost-to-power basis compared to a xeon based pc? I think these would not be too powerfully but for the cost, several of these running as a renderfarm may be better, and allow me to spend less at a time.
*what other minimum parts would be required?
That's a bit of a specialised question really, I'm not sure we can confidently give you an accurate answer. I'd suggest posting on our forums at http://forums.co.uk - it's possible someone there has experience with this kind of application.
As usual by marKo
As usual Aria not reading what the customer is asking.
On my previous post I asked for an advice about a suitable case for the AMD APu motherboard and I was asked about the budget....so it was just a way to buy time, then upon my reply about budget none of the cases suggested are small enough to fit unde the telly and on top of that on the answer is telling that depends on type of cooler?
Hello!!! this has an integrated cooler Wakeup and read about the product in question and best of all read the customer question.
Apologies, when ThomasY answered your question he wouldn't have been able to see that this was part of an ongoing conversation. Really this mechanism is provided to answer specific technical questions, rather than to provide customer sales advice (we have a very capable and qualified sales team to do that).
To answer your question, probably quick code 43859 would be the best suited to an 'under the telly' environment. We don't have much choice of HTPC style cases right now as there seems to be a dearth of them generally, it's something we're working on.
