MSI MB + 8gig RAM
« on: January 10, 2017, 11:14:17 PM »
Used this in my HTPC for a few years, mostly to play music via JRiver to DAC.

Upgraded, so no more use for it.

Specs are here:

https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/E350IAE45.html#hero-specification

Nice features are HDMI, coaxial and optical outs.

Not the fastest in the world, but had no issues playing high res music to DAC. My DAC doesn't do DSD, but I ran DSD ISO SACD files via JRiver down to 176.4 on USB with no issues. Does up to 192 over coax and optical. Would not recommend for HD video playback, struggles with 40gig BD ISO, but general MKV etc are fine.

Two 4gig  DDR3 1333 RAM modules included.

Collection in Centurion

I'll queue for 2nd in line if Timber doesn't take it please.

Will make a perfect upgrade for my daughter!
