Re: On Micro-ATX

Is it any good? I think I had another 6450 (with a 32-bit memory interface) but even at the desktop it appeared to be slow. Replaced it with a 6570. I have mainly been using it for desktop purposes (browsers, shells, etc) which are hardly tasking. I tried a WebGL app and it was slow. I've read some...

Re: On Micro-ATX

Might want to grab GPU-z and see what's going on, temp-wise and clock rates. I run Linux but I can see from the sensors it's running at 58° idle. I'll maybe look into options later. The reason I was originally going to get the GTX 750 is it runs passively at 50° which is presumably its normal opera...

Asus HD6450-SL-2GD3-L

Since I was being a bit spastic at the end it was maybe not the best choice even for short term since it seems to get pretty hot doing not much, so I may exchange it.

Re: On Micro-ATX

So my workstation is finally built. I got a bit spastic in the end, since I needed to use it for the weekend. NCIX wasn't shipping the HSF nor replying to my email after a day so I ordered a somewhat overpriced NH-U12 S from Amazon next-day. It's all running caseless now, inaudible from more than a ...

Perfect, order changed. Thanks!

Re: On Micro-ATX

I've been reading some reviews of the 212 Evo on a 2011-3 socket and it seems it may have issues where the mounting breaks and a screw gets stuck in the motherboard. http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099 Given I can't find your suggested model, do you have any other suggesti...

Re: On Micro-ATX

Asrock only shows one 16GB ECC RAM module in the mobo's QVL and it's Samsung. Upside is they tested a 16GB ECC RAM, downside - it isn't yours. :D You could ask Asrock tech support. $450 for RAM!! I couldn't find ASRock's RAM anywhere. Before I ordered the Crucial RAM I checked their validator which...

Re: On Micro-ATX

It's done! I finally ordered it. It usually doesn't take this much agonizing. I decided to start off without a case, that will help me tune it, but will probably get that Sugo. Here's the parts list: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/phLLjX I have another 850 pro for RAID0. pcparts claims the RAM isn't c...

Re: On Micro-ATX

I can't speak to the intensity of the multiple tasks. Maybe it'll saturate. Importing data won't...Sequential write speeds for current gen mainstream SSDs are ~500MByte/sec. LAN is usually Gigabit, so the max is 125MByte/s, actual throughput will be less. I mean importing from the local hard disk i...

Re: On Micro-ATX

SSD in RAID0: Not sure I see a benefit...do you really have tasks that can make use of this bandwidth? I think so, at least occasionally. When importing large language processing sets or multiple data intensive tasks at the same time it will make a difference, particularly if I don't go the > 32GB ...

Re: On Micro-ATX

Yep, pretty limited selection for your use case. If you can cram the 13.5" wide Fractal 804 into your 13" wide space, go for it. :) I like the front to back air flow...although the front fans may be starved for air. Otherwise, the feature set is nice. Another case that will fit is the Silverstone S...

Re: On Micro-ATX

Another question for you: Can you better describe the 13"x13"x15" (WxHxD) space? This could be a killer for airflow-> high heat-> high noise, so it'll limit the case possibilities. Is it open in front and back? Is there any venting on the sides/top/bottom? it's basically those dimensions, open at t...

Re: On Micro-ATX

Can't you put it behind, next to or on top of the cabinet? ATX itself is 9.6" x 12", getting awfully close to your 13". mATX is 9.6", but stack a ATX PSU on top and you're over 13" as well. What about the mATX http://www.lian-li.com/en/dt_portfolio/pc-v352/? It's 16" long. Most of the time compact ...

On Micro-ATX

On page 5, the overview states «typical size is 15" x 15" x 8"» for mATX, but most recommended cases aren't in this size. It would be really helpful if you'd include the sizes in the table format. I'm looking for a *silent* (from 1m) case that fits in an (open) cabinet, for a 45W CPU. I'd love to fi...
