First I need to thank pcpartpicker.com for providing a very helpful database and the members here for helping me as questions arose. This really is a one-stop source for building your own PC.
This was my first attempt to build a PC and my first experience with Linux. I primarily built this for fun, just to see if I could do it. I hope it will replace my weakling Samsung Win 8 All-in-One that is being used as it's monitor.
I am currently running Sparky Linux 64 bit on it with no hardware issues. Sparky is based on Debian testing, and I use it for all my PC needs except the World Of Tanks game. In the near future I intend to install Win 10 preview also.
This was far easier than expected, I started around 8AM and was running by 11am on Thanksgiving day; including reading all manuals to be sure I wasn't gonna make obvious errors. It went together very easily and in 6 months I have not needed to change anything.
I'll try to answer any questions that anyone has. Drew
Fine for what it is.
Not going to be equal to a good CPU + GPU set-up for games.
Has powered my Linux PC with no problems at all.
Keeps my APU cool. A little large for a mini ITX board. Quiet enough but not silent by far.
Small, compact, tight... call it what you want but it fit my case.
Total lack of Linux support annoying. Lost a star for that.
Once I chose Mini ITX and AMD my options were few, but this board has worked fine.
Fast drive. I am happy with it so far after 6 months. I use it for primary OS, most of my storage is in the cloud now after a series of failed spinning drives. With Sparky Linux my boot times are a few seconds until sign on. Wish I had bought another as the 850 Evo has had bad press.
Easy to build in.
Get a modular PSU to avoid cable clutter.
Lots of airflow.
3 possible case fans.
Front USB ports upside down. Power light way too bright!!!
It provides stable power. Can deliver way more than I need but the extra capacity is nice for future uses if needed.
