[ Closed] Advices : AsRock Q1900 / Q2900M or QC500


Recommended Posts



I'm new here and i have an XPenology in a hold HP Pavillon CoreDuo with 3Gb of RAM. This one is working well but reset the bios at every reboot :sad:

I've been searching and don't find the solution in this forum. To get this PC working under XPenology, i have burn the bootable iso to a CD-Rom and left this CD all the time in the PC ( the reset bios, make the boot to CD by defaut). It's working, but not perfect :sad:


I've decidied to by a new motherboard and there is my needs :

- Sharing files

- DLNA, i've got RaspBerry with XBMC, don't plan to use "transcoding" with Plex.

- Vidéo Station

- Photos, with synology

- A little bit of php/mysql

- And maybe Minecraft for the kids


The questions are :

- AMD or Intel ?

Intel :

- ASRock Q2900M : http://www.ldlc.com/fiche/PB00172128.html

- ASRock Q2900-ITX : http://www.ldlc.com/fiche/PB00172130.html


- ASRock QC5000-ITX : http://www.ldlc.com/fiche/PB00174924.html


To the motherboard i plan to add, 2*2Go or 2*4Go of RAM.


I think the QC500 are sufficient, but what about the Q2900M ?


Thanks in advance for all your advices and feedbacks !


Sorry for my bad english ... :smile:

I suggest asrock q1900 or q2900 itx version.. they are popular among here and should get support easier.. ^^..currently, l am using q2900 itx and very happy with it. Btw, it seems some folks encountered system freeze problem when copy data to and from these models.. but it doesn't happened to me..
