Biostar A68I-350 Deluxe mini-ITX Motherboard Overview

We come up with several creative uses for the Biostar A68I-350 Deluxe. Check out the video or else!

The Biostar A68I-350 Deluxe mini-ITX motherboard is quite decent for the money. The integrated AMD APU can handle roms, old games, indie games, and even some newer games at 720p. 

We are going to use this for our nas build. It's not the best option for a nas (I'd rather use it as a media PC for the living room) as it only has three SATA ports, but we really need a new nas. Stay tuned for the freeNAS tutorial.

I think it would be nice for a maybe a small theatre, for streaming movies to your TV or something, i don't know.

Make a build on it anyways.

I wanna see it catching fire with the hyper beast memory with extreme overclock and nitro, or i will get my ass out of portugal and will be there to tell wendell to punch you... by the way great video keep up the good work and sorry about my english peace i'm out...................

the highest the e-350 boards memory goes is sometimes 1333, maybe 17 on CPU multiplier and it has a 100Mhz baseclock that controls stuff like sata and PCI-E so it FSB (BCLK) OCs just as good as a Sandybridge chip

 

TL:DR 2400Mhz ram running at the most 1400Mhz isn't worth it

DVR+NES emulator

Arcade box would be really nice to see.

I like the setup of this Mini Itx, but im just a little disapointed by the built in APU. I hope more Mini itx boards come out this year, would like to make a beast Arcade/Multi Media PC for the living room.

Stick it in an xbox 360 case.

Can you make it a router/NAS combo? I have never made my own router before but I am trying to think of why one could not have storage built in along with the network controllers.

hmm. i think Logan should do a router, nas or arcade box (and anyother ideas). Like a mini sieres showing how versatile a Mini itx motherboard can be, while showing us how to be creative.

i was just going to reply with something like this. I say build a mini steam pc and show what it can do; as well as, tv recording and other stuff. use this thing as a mini series for tutorials that'd be awesome

The Printer port could be used if you want to control an electronic circuit, any electronic circuit, like a robot maybe or a "computerized home" thing or naturally a printer, and it is very powerful because of the CPU (compared to a microcontroller). Basically you can write a driver in windows for your device, or go hardcore and write assembly and let the CPU handle it.

i have my HTPC that does multiple things, i use it as a NAS (share the hard drives and mount them as a network drive), for emulating games 8/16bit games PS1 PS2 Dreamcast and Gamecube/Wii games, and playing movies

the system i use for a HTPC is a athlon 64X2 4800+ so an apu could probably handle it

you should remove the heat sink and replace it with a fanless unit. (hardware hack)

fit it in a SNES ? :)

I'm looking forward for the nas build, I hope it includes software and network configuration.

Its okay. Only a dual core and those chips are damn slow. If it had an FM2 APU it would be better and I would buy for a cheap build for my old folks.

make a slurpr, that will crack networks automatically

Unfortunatly after my last biostar being DOA I don't quite trust them anymore. Might have been shipper fault, might have been manufacturing fault, I will never no...

Hey guys, first post here. I'm planing my ITX build around this mobo/cpu combo. I am perplexed on the CPU heatsink. I know the CPU can't be switched, but, can the heatsink can? If so, what would fit in it?

 

Worst case scenario, I NEED to replace that stupid little fan, I can tell it's crap. Does anyone know what size it is? If it's 80mm, I can pick up the noctua 80mm fan. I plan on overclocking, since I will be using this in a cooler master 120, and I will upgrade all the fans inside as well.

 

Thanks guys!

most e350s don't even have fans on them, they draw a max of 18w this isn't a 3930K, but yeah you can take off the heatsink and I'd recommend replacing the paste, that should be all you need to do

 

also you can overclock as much as you can overclock a i3 2100, and that's a 40mm fan

Hey Logan (or anyone who has this board),

I was wondering if you could let us know how loud the fan is because I was looking to build a HTPC and a new router (thinking about getting two of these boards because they are so cheap).

Thanks in advance!!

I consider myself an "advanced" user of PCSX2 and there is no way you are going to get a PS2 emulator to run smoothly on that, you'd need at least a 2Ghz dual core with SSE4.1 (intel sandy or ivy, or even gen1)

it probably can run PS1 games no problem, game cube might be pushing it if you could, you'd need to use all the speed options cpu wise and stock resolution with no filtering GPU wise

a lot of indie games will work on this, if you have a broken console like a NES or a fat PS2 throw it in that, SNES is cramped without the right specific parts

To date, no one has ever put a PC in a N64, if you put it in either one of those I'll love you forever

 

FOREVER

Was that you helping with the soldering in the SNES PC video 2?
