Hi

I have just installed a Core i3 with a Zotac H55 Mini ITX. I also have

>Silverstone Sugo SG06 Case
>Silverstone 300w tuned power supply
>4Gb DDR3 Ram Crucial

When trying to install Windows 7 it gave me headaches. Kept freezing while unpacking. I resolved this by removing 1 of the RAM sticks and unplugging the USB HUB. I also had to set the BIOS settings to Failsafe Defaults

When doing simple tasks like watching video online, it might suddenly freeze up, the mouse cursor freezes and requires a hard reset. It is very strange and very annoying!

Think it cannot be the PSU, as the processor is only 73w and the graphics are just over 100w. What else could it be, RAM issue?

This ram worked perfect on my ASROCK board...

Just flashed the BIOS...which had ALOT of fixes in it. Windows now loads under optimal defaulst, where before it would only load under failsafe default.

Running memtest86+ now (v4.1) no issues so far

Very disapointed with this board. Even if you plug in a bootable USB or DVD, it wont automatically load, need to go through the boot menu.

Everything is ok, but not great by any means
