FYI:
I got a couple of ECS boards in the past from Fryís CPU-board combo deals. They all had loud electronic noises and malfunctioned after a few months. One of them (671T-M v1.0) actually caught on fire (i.e., I saw actual flames on the board). Iím gonna avoid this brand from now on, and you may want to do the same thing. There is no cheap junk, just junk you paid for. Spend a bit more for a better board that lasts longer, doesnít annoy you while youíre using it, and resells much better.

† I have heard similar, scary...but I guess enough of their product does work or they wouldn't be selling anymore.

I got this board last time it went on sale. Plan was to use it with FreeNas. The onboard NIC was not recognized. May matter to someone.

Too slow for windows 7. Netflix was very choppy. Had to send back.

I suspect it will come in stock again soon and with another rebate, I've seen it at this price 3 times so far, but so far I've resist impulse to buy it.† It only has 2 SATA ports, so it won't make a great low-power server.† And I have a lot of experience with these AMD Trinity CPUs, they are pokey, but adequate if you get the drivers dialed in just right (this was a bitch in Linux in the early days, but seems easier now).† The E350 CAN play 1080p both with the proprietary fglrx driver and the open source radeon these days, but without a lot of overhead.† This CPU is a little underpowered even by the standards of its 2+ year old Trinity/Fusion/kabini/whatever-AMD-is-calling these Atom-subsitute chips.†

I've used a lot of ECS and generally the products work OK, but I've seen a lot of them die after a few years.† In fact that I'm browsing for a motherboard now, my ECS amd690GM-M2 seems to have just given up the ghost after 6 or so years.† ECS would be about my last pick for a mobo maker.†

Supposedly Intel finally updated its Atom to the latest Haswell/Bay Trail noise and there are mobo/CPUs from MSI, Biostar & Gigabyte that are supposed to be in the pipeline shortly for about $60.† Also, only 2 SATA ports, but probably about twice the CPU of this combo for similar energy usage.† Frankly, less AMD/ECS and more speed is worth an extra $25 to me, especially since on the Newegg site I've seen a report about how flakey the ECS rebate is.† Pass.

WTF???

rated:
This CPU is so weak it will make you cry.

Go with something like this instead.

I ordered a†Cooler Master Elite 120, which was $29.99 AR previously. The deal is dead now but I think Micro Center still has them for ~$35 AR. I'm guessing most people would want a smaller/cheaper case, or at least one with a PSU at that price for a low-end system.

But the CM case supposedly fits full-size graphics cards well, and I'll probably put a graphics card in the PCI-E x16 slot to run a cryptocurrency miner. So with a $20 AR Corsair 430W PSU, it works for me.

I have this case for my mini itx build. It is set up for a pico PSU. It doesn't have room for optical drives or expansion cards but is tiny and very solid.
