At the end of last year week took a look at one of ASRock’s first nettop the ION 330HT, which was built around Intel’s Atom processor. With the release of Intel’s Core processors ASRock rebuilt their nettop series around this new architecture. These new nettops bring more processing power, full native 1080p playback, 7.1-channel HD audio, 802.11n wireless networking, and USB 3.0 support. We will be looking at the Core 100HT today which features an Intel Core i3-330M processor, 4GB of DDR3 memory, a 500GB hard drive and a SuperMulti optical drive. Let’s take a look and see if the Core 100HT is perfect for your home theater setup.

Though well equipped, including Asus’ TurboV, Asus Express gate, and Asus EPU6, among many other features, that first Asus X58 motherboard I had, the P6T, has become a little dated, especially compared to Asus’ newer motherboards. The P6T had 8+2 phase voltage regulating, Asus has since improved on that with other boards. And both USB3 and SATA 6Gb/s has been released since the P6T was released. So to bring the venerable X58 up to date, Asus has released a couple of new X58 boards. Today I will be looking at the Asus P6X58D-E motherboard, a new Asus board sporting 16+2 phase power, true USB3 and SATA 6Gb/s, and support for the Intel Bloomfield processor and Microsoft Windows 7. Read on to check out the Asus P6X58D-E motherboard!
