5 out of 5 eggsEverything I Needed

Pros: - Stable / Durable / Worked out of box and for 2.5 years till being temporarily placed in retirement
- Able to play games on low res (Civ5, Half-Life 2 Source Engine games, etc)

Cons: - None

Other Thoughts: After having this dual core APU, I am a firm believer in budget builds using the APU architecture.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for XBMC

Pros: I purchased this board to replace a older, high-powered motherboard in an XBMC HTPC. This board can handle everything I have thrown at it. All the media files are on a central storage location, and streams across gigabit Ethernet. Fan is not noticeable from 5' away. Boot time is very impressive with an SSD.

Cons: None so far.

5 out of 5 eggsVery very solid board!

Pros: This is a very solid board! Running at roughly 20watts idle (board on it's own) the thing is much more powerful compared to my Atom file server (an Acer Aspire easystore). File transfers via LAN are also faster as I've been running a non stop low load FTP and HTTP server but it's had 0 blue screens in the past 4 months (reset the thing a few times after Win Update), which is pretty good.

Cons: I can hear the fan sometimes. (used a fan adapter and changed it to a quieter one)

Other Thoughts: Everybody was complaining about the lack of thermal paste between the CPU and heatsink. Mine seems to come with the grey TIM which isn't the best thermal conductant but you shouldn't change this as thermal paste tends to squeeze out of lidless CPUs over time.(it's also not recommended by AMD).

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Mini-ITX Board

Pros: Small form factor, made by a trusted motherboard company. This will mainly be used as a utorrent, serviio box, file server. Won't need to do any heavy lifting so I didn't need a powerful processor. I originally had the ASRock E-350 board, this one seems to have better performance, no delay in opening/closing folders or any other visual performance problems. I paired this with an Antec ISK 300-150 and it works perfectly. The reason I like the E-350 boards is the power usage. With an 80mm fan, 64GB SSD, 2x 4GB ram this system uses 33 watts of power.

Cons: Like others have said, this board runs hot with the stock thermal paste. I removed the old thermal paste and applied MX-2, now it's running at 36/37 idle. I do wish it had a rear eSATA port, but the case I have came with a front port so not a big deal.

Other Thoughts: I don't know if I would recommend this board As-Is, it really needs new thermal paste for it to perform reliably. I definitely wouldn't recommend this if you're putting it in a fanless enclosure.

5 out of 5 eggsSurprisingly Strong for a mini

Pros: - Despite it's diminutive size, it can handle most heavy/graphic intensive 3D (Autodesk Maya 2008) & 2D applications (Adobe Photoshop CS5) a little above an average level of quality with some tweaking.

- Very cheap price; an entire system was assembled for less than $350 US after tax (OS not included)

- Easy to follow setup instructions in Owner's manual.

Cons: - Limited performance gains through BIOS tweaking; marginal performance increase of about 2% for 15 degrees more temperature.

-16x PCI Express is limited to 4x.

Other Thoughts: I originally got this in a pinch so that I could have a tiny foot print for all of my 2D and 3D work; sort of a proof of concept I suppose. These were the parts that were used:
- This Board (AMD Hudson-M1 FCH Mini ITX Motherboard/AMD E-350 CPU Combo)
- 2x 4GB AMD3-10600 CL9 1333 240-pin DIMM DDR3 Memory

- IN WIN BP655.200BL Black Steel Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case

- SeaSonic SS-300TFX Bronze 300W TFX12V v2.3 Power Supply

- iStarUSA T-7M1-SA-RED 1x5.25" Bay Audio Series SATA Mobile Rack

- PNY VCGGT5201XPB GeForce GT 520 (Fermi) 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16

The overall cost, thanks to the board combo, was much lower than anticipated. Sadly, I neglected to take into account that most of the applications that I use require at least a 2GHz processor for normal/average performance out of the box (Adobe Photoshop has pen lag issues otherwise, for example). There are workarounds for each app to compensate for its strength, but it's good to know this before making a p

1 out of 5 eggsGigabyte GA-E350N-USB3

Pros: The Board works well, it set up easily, and has been very reliable. Running it now as a MythTV Frontend.

Cons: Rant Mode On:

If you think you are getting a rebate from Gigabyte, forget about it! What a scam. I am so upset right now, I will never buy another Gigabyte product. I sent in the completed rebate forms, and they decline the rebate telling me that I didn't send in the invoice, give me a break!!! Then they tell me to resubmit the rebate with an invoice, so try that, and I write a note on the form that this invoice is for Rebate number ####, there is no way to send the other required information that they want since it was already sent in with the original rebate form. How would they expect me to send in this > Original Model Name & Serial Number Label cut from Retail Box is missing!

I give up no more rebates for me, and no more Gigabyte!!

Over and out!

Rant Mode Off!

Other Thoughts: Gigabyte rebates suck!!!!

5 out of 5 eggsGigabyte GA-E350N

Pros: Great features in a small form factor.

Cons: Factory heat sink issues.

Other Thoughts: Like many I needed to update the thermal paste used on the heatsink. The factory heatsink is not great, but good enough if you disassemble the three pieces and carefully re-paste. Mine dropped 20 degrees C. After going through many Via and Atom mini ITX solutions I was impressed with the new AMD APU/GPU performance. With a good codec, this will do full HD graphics. Asus has a similar offering which has a superior heat solution, but lacks both HDMI and VGA outputs I required for my dual monitor boat application

Other Thoughts: Had issues with this motherboard and the LSI Megaraid 9240 8i. The system would not boot with the raid controller installed. I would receive a "No physical memory is available at the location required for the Windows Boot Manager. The system can not continue" error. I updated the bios to the latest version F2 according to the Gigabyte website, and the system booted flawlessly into windows with the raid controller installed.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Price is great for an entry level USB 3.0, SATA III motherboard and CPU. Installed with a regular hard drive using Vista Ultimate even though the lack of a trim command (only avail. in Windows 7) might hurt me later. Now I will wait for the price of SATA III solid state drives to come down before I upgrade.

Cons: The case I eventually bought sits on top of my wall mounted 42" LCD TV and looks out of place. The selection of thin cases that can be hidden behind an LCD TV without a DVD drive for this type of HDTV-PC is both limited and expensive.

Other Thoughts: Manufacturers of HTPC cases please pay attention. Media streaming services are making DVD drives obselete.

5 out of 5 eggsHigh Temp Remedy

Pros: Excellent performance.
Features enumerated in previous review.
This review is a follow up to a successful lowering of operational temperatures.

Note that this APU since it is a low power profile will run at temperatures that are higher than standard processors while being perfectly normal. For example, the Intel Atom in certain netbooks would sustain 81-83C under full load and last for years.

The lifespan and stability can be improved, however, with keeping the operational temperatures in a lower range. For a normal processor, this might be 30C idle and 45C load for air or 22C idle and 33C load for liquid cooling. The best I have gotten with the GA-E350N-USB3 was 47C idle and 58C load with the stock cooler.

Cons: High temperatures out-of-the-box.

I have had this board for awhile now, and after watching the temps start out idling at ~54C and heading up into the high 60C's under load, I experimented with the cooling system in it.

I now have the board idling at 47C and 54-57C under full load depending on if it is processor-only or processor+video load. If it is video-only then the temp stays around 52C. All on the stock cooler.

This is only recommended for people with experience of setting up heat sinks, and is not a suggestion or instructions recommending that it be done; this is just a recount of what I did to mine to lower the temperatures.

Whether or not the warranty was voided would be up to GIGABYTE.

See other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: 1. Remove the stock cooling system (unplug fan, remove 4 screws+nylon washers from back, carefully remove heat sink+fan).
2. Using solvent+cloth or a very fine blade/cloth clean the thermal compound off of the SB and the APU and the underside of the heat sink.
3. Remove the six screws holding the heat sink "plates" to the heat sink fins/fan.
4. Clean off the ceramic compound (what little there is) and apply a generous pea-size of your favorite TC (I use AS-5).
5. Reinstall the plates, clean off any excess that shows once you press the plates tightly together.
*** NOTE: You will feel how easily the plates come apart with the stock compound, but the plates will be vacuum sealed (hard to pull apart again) with the new compound (as they should be) - this means you did it right.
6. Apply a small, thin line of TC to the APU and SB, orienting the line in the direction of the APU/SB's longer side.
7. Reinstall heat sink and tighten screws (don't forget the washers).
8. Observe results!
