    Actually the fan is virtually silent. Have to put your ears about 12" away to tell if the pc is on. With a tdp of 25w at full tilt....not much is needed :)

    If you want to undervolt, then I have gotten a BIOS from AsRock that allows it.

    I can back this up as I used the exact same fan for my build. Small fans don't have to be loud if they aren't running at 6000RPM+.

    Did you want a whole PC or just the chassis? I do not plan to become a PC manufacturer but happy to help :)

    You may not want to, but as I said it looks premium. I bet you could sell those for $80. The mitx market already seems to be more expensive than regular sized components even though they are smaller.

    For now will just support the community if anyone wants a case and as long as it is ok with Mods on this site. I am so slammed with my other business I am not sure if I can take on a whole new segment. I will just keep it to the AM1H-ITX mobo since it takes direct DC in and makes the above look snazzy without the ATX mess!

    Interesting - USB 3.0 ports do not work on this mobo. RMA'ed it and the new board - still no USB 3.0! Reinstalled all drivers, tried a fresh install and the ports do not even have power. Now that two boards have the same issue... I started to dig a little. Looks like the 3.0 controller is on-board the AM1 processor. I guess my next step in troubleshooting is to throw parts at it and try another 5350. Very curious if that is the issue.

    That is quite an odd issue...I have not heard any problems on that platform yet at least in that case. Maybe you got a bad chip?

    Let's us know how it's resolved!

    Possible! After all these years and countless chips that I have punished / overclocked... I have never killed one off or had an issue with a chip. Just may be my turn :) Time will tell. But yeah, searching... it appears to be that I am alone in this issue.

    I have some how managed out of the masses of chips I have messed with ended up with 2 bad chips in my time. One had a bad memory controller (I cannot remember what chip it was now but it was awhile back) and recently I have (Actually working on it in my free time) an A10 6800K with what I believe to be a bad temp probe inside the chip. That chip seems to shut down randomly for "Overheating" on a Hyper212 at stock settings even with Turbo Disabled even though my temp probe and laser gun say its temps are nowhere near what its reading (That and none of the coolers I have put on it get warm).

    Im going to have to put it on Liquid AIO (Spare I have) and see what happens while running a few more diagnostics to see if we have to get another/RMA it.

    You should be able to easily get a replacement if that is the problem, but things happen sadly enough :(
