Good card, Great value, better than Xfired 270Xs.

 

Very small formfactor and powerful as a big PC. Runs a little hot sometimes and fan gets noisy, but its understandable

Loud fan sometimes

Fan Question

 

One guy on here said he placed the MB inside a new box with a better fan and it reduces the noise level significantly. Can anyone PM me a proper small case/housing with optimal cooling system in order to make this build? Trying to make music with this...

A big computer in a little box

 

System runs great after I repackaged the MB in a new box with a better fan. Runs so quiet now I sometimes wonder if it is still running or powered on. I will have to do this with my other 5 BRIX units too.

Small Form Factor ; Fast Computing Speed ; Ease of configuration ; Build options ; Quality

Fan is a little noisy when running at peak ; Fan not large enough to keep system cool under heavy loads ; Heat buildup can corrupt data on MSata drives ; USB 3 ports drop/disconnect external USB 2 drives when using some USB keyboards and mice(USB...

Good for Hackintosh

 

Was easy to build a Hackintosh OSX Yosemite running on this, the only problem is the Audio is unsupported and requires some extra hacking to work and the HDMI audio is also difficult under OSX. Aside from these issues I have a much faster and higher...

Easy to configure, powerful cpu, and performance

Heatsink fan noisy, bad audio ALC269 chip that nobody uses, could use a quieter fan. More USB ports

Fast and small, but noisy.

 

This is great if you need something small with a lot of CPU horsepower, but can also hide it in a basement somewhere...

Fast. I'm using this machine as a Plex transcode box. Depending on the content the transcode speed has been up to 25 X, which is great ; Small. It's coffee mug size

Loud. In normal usage, it's fine, but the second that you start to tax the CPU you hear the tiny fan spin up to VERY audible levels. This thing sits inside of my media cabinet, which may not have the best ventilation, but even when moved outside it's...

BRIX GB-BXi7 4770R is GREAT

 

We have deployed 5 of these so far and they are our new corporate standard PC. They build quality is excellent, the performance is FANTASTIC and the ease of building and deploying them is a real plus. We have not had one moment's problem from any of...

RMA quality control is terrible, too

 

Nice form factor when it works

I wrote earlier that my unit died after 8 months. I just got my RMAed unit back, and it is still dead. It will not POST and never even gets to the BIOS. It seems as though Gigabyte's techs either didn't fix it properly, or it has broken again in the...

Neat, but died after 8 months

 

I liked the form factor, and was even willing to look past the fan noise generally, but its sudden death at a young age makes me wonder if there are quality issues with the power supply or the thermal system.

Nice compact form factor, peppy graphics, great Linux support, no problem driving two monitors

It gets very hot and the fan is very loud when you perform any task that is somewhat demanding. The tip of my headphones or USB devices would sometime get hot while it was plugged in ; And of course, to top it off, it died after 8 months. It powered...

Will not see drives

 

Too bad. I would by 20 of these for my server farm if they worked.

These are awesome. I bought 2 of them, 1 is working perfectly, But the other one isn't

One of the units will not recognize any SATA drive in the sata port. I put a mSata drive in to see if it would help and it did, it recognized it for about an hour but now will not see that either. looks like a dud
