Fairly generic and single channel

Heck, it's actually already 1 up from the official DDR3-1066 standard on this. Just like DDR3-1333 standard on AM3, but you can access x8 1600 multiplier.
Are the timings able to lower though?
yeah i kinda cheaped out on the mobo, but oh well
and yes, i can change memory timings, which is one of the few things that it lets me do but i do love the ASRock bios, its one of those fancy ones that the mouse works in

Just to chip in. I bought this board with the asus deluxe. Great little chip.

It had problems streaming many netflix movies, lots of stutters etc.

Im sure these problems will be ironed out but until then not sure this is right for a htpc.

sounds like a codec issue or netflix's problem/network, with MPC-HC and render settings set up correctly, mines running 1080p .mkv files like a dream absolutely no stuttering whatsoever through the entirety of Avatar and several other shorter videos (also 1080p), ~30% CPU usage, cpu and video temps barely getting warm.

Max temp for the Zacate is apparently 90C. Source

Just got mine, still having some issues here and there for video playback and setting up the right codecs for XMBC. I am actually using a 85w laptop brick from nMedia to power mine. I am loving my ASUS Deluxe, the integrated wifi, optical audio, USB 3.0 and Overclockability (haven't tested that just yet) was the kicker for me. Still a lot to setup for my little HTPC. I think someone should start a club for it soon...If I get a chance I will do it because I see a lot of HTPC's being built soon with this baby.

on my aspire 522 (1GHz) fullhd videos are ok , even streamed trough hdmi to tv

i use only mpc-hc with dxva acceleration enabled for videos (h264,etc..)
this combination is working good

(a little Threadromancy...)

I'm finding, at least on this ASRock E350M1, that the System Monitor eats about a (constant) 8% CPU. If set to only a single core for affinity, it is about 10-12% :\\ So I ditched that program! I'm bummed as well that AOD doesn't work either. It's OC portion doesn't have to work, but I find it rather useful in other regards (as long as the program can correctly read sensors! Which it can't on my ASRock 890FX Dlx3 lol). Nothing I've found will work to overclock though. I think Sandra has provided me the Clock Generator, after striking out looking on the board itself, but nothing shows support for that one. So looks like it's up to ASRock including it in the BIOS!

I'm finishing up my review of this thing and I'm finding that the IGP realllly holds back the memory performance... Turning it off (seemingly by setting the BIOS Northbridge to PCI Express and using a graphics card) helps a lot, but no where near as much as the Sapphire board with the option to really turn it off. I've got the highest Memory performance, Latency and Mem/Cache Bandwidth for the E350 on Sandra's ranking with the Sapphire No where close to those scores on the ASRock though, even with 1333@6-6-6-19 1T memory, vs the Sapph's untweakable SODIMMs running 1066@7-7-7-24 2T (not sure if 2T is correct).

Though I just tested memory performance quick with the IGP turned back on and memory performance didn't change on the ASRock... So perhaps it ISN'T disabling it when set to "PCI Express" *shrug* I'll see what ASRock has to say about it and maybe they can configure it so the BIOS does fully disable the IGP :\\

you can probably get 2.0ghz stable with the zacate, they are a ***** to overclock and love overvolting.

check out my setup
