^ Story please! O_O

post #193 of 774
Booted it after transferring it to my bitfenix prodigy case that i had just received. It shutdown after 15 minutes i then restarted it. I caught fire after that on one of the mofset chips, the one on the left. More stories about it http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157340&Tpk=fm2a75mitx . Look at both pages of reviews. None of those are mine.

Hah, how about that! Well, from the sound of it, you'll probably be happier with a mATX board, I hope it treats you better biggrin.gif

I think mine would have gone the very same way if I didn't immediately stick a Delta 60x60 fan on top of the MOSFETs as soon as I realized how hot they ran!! mad.gif


Also, fresh news from Gigabyte. Their FM2 ITX board is releasing in early February thumb.gif

Neither could I, that's why I went the only route that gives me reliability, voltage control, and a small-ish form factor tongue.gif

Even if it's in detriment of the Wi-Fi and BT, but I don't care that much since I have already bought the dongles anyway.

I have silently been following this thread for months. I just registered to post my thoughts.

About gigabyte's upcoming FM2 mini-ITX: What the crap? You are already so late in the game, and you're pushing the release date of the mobo yet some more? I really wanted to check out that motherboard, but it's so god damn frustrating, *forever* waiting for products to be released. Might as well wait for Kaveri's to arrive.mad.gif

Asrock released a very promising board, and was the first to do so. Turns out, it's crap, and I'm glad I did not buy it. So what are our options here (Trinity based Mini-ITX motherboards)? 1 x MSI, 1 x Sapphire, 2 x Zotac? 4 motherboards in total (that is also counting the sapphire with the SO-DIMM slots)? Will Asus release any?

I also e-mailed Gigabyte, asked them if there's any info (any info at all) about their FM2 mini-ITX mobo. They didn't know what "Mini-ITX" was...

At least I'll be learning about memory compatibility and overclocking attempts through this thread. Has anyone tested the Samsung 30nm eco-RAM with the MSI mini-ITX mobo? I've already bought that RAM kit, since I thought I'd be getting the Asrock board as soon as it would come out. May have to sell it after all.

Manufacturers should also keep in mind that their boards should be able to do some decent overclock, since part of the reason for trinity is future-proofing your system with a socket that will last at least another generation. So when I get a Kaveri APU, I don't want to be stuck with DDR3 1600

Agree, but since Kaveri will be sharing platform with Trinity... If their board is decent, there shouldn't be any problem besides that anyone already owning a motherboard when Kaveri launches will not be a potential customer... But that's their choice, even if I cannot say I agree.

Yeah, their board was crap. Turns out they reused the layout from their A75M-ITX and updated it to fit FM2, and that board also had burning VRMs, overheating issues, and such.

MSI's so far seems to run fine, Zotac has no ETA on theirs, Sapphire's seems to be lost in the blue, and Gigabyte's the only one besides the MSI that we can more or less safely assume will work properly.

Haha they did the same to me, but I asked them for m-ITX. On my reply I stated 'Mini-ITX form factor, 17 x 17cm' and they did indeed provide me information about said board, syaing it'd release early february, and that they would update their website soon to reflect actual information on the board.

Nobody around the Internet has been able to run those sticks past 1600MHz on Trinity. You may as well return them and grab some regular 1866 sticks... My GSKILL Ares 2133 CL9 do 2000MHz CL8-9-8 (on the A10-5700, known to not like fast memory speeds), and they run pretty damn fast smile.gif

Yeah. Seems like the K parts overclock the memory rather decent, unlike non-Ks.
