XPEnology ~Synology on ASRock Q1900M (MicroATX), Q1900 & Q2900 (ITX)  

After the previous ASRock C70M1 (AMD C-70 APU) working well on XPEnology ~Synology, bought some Intel J1900 Quad-Core based mini mobo to build more Synology boxes again laughing

I was rushing to build some NAS boxes (for me & my friend/partner) around end of March, before the April fool GST price hike.  So as usual I went to LowYat Plaza, it was havoc, not only me, lots of people from all walks of life were there for last minute IT shopping around that time, really crowded and it seem many items were already out of stock ..yell ..

Somehow it's quite difficult to find mini mobo with good full solid capacitors, most of them either don't sell or no stock.  I can only find some ASRock Q1900M (MicroATX) mobo left at ViewNet (@ 3rd floor LowYat Plaza).  So no choice just grab it.  Due to the large crowd purchasers, the PC assembly long queue can only collect the next day ..surprised..

Anyway, this is the ASRock Q1900M, works well with XPEnology~Synology without any issue laughing

Since it's difficult to find ASRock ITX here, so during my recent trip to Hong Kong, I went to Sham Shui Poh 深水埗 's Golden Computer Centre 高登電腦中心 to check it out.

Luckily they have many ITX mobo choices, so I bought the ASRock Q1900-ITX and Q2900-ITX laughing, then bought the RAM, CoolerMaster Elite 110 & PSU back home to assemble DIY

I'm keeping the Q2900-ITX, I might consider to build a mini compact CPU with SSD for PC usage later on, now still looking for really small compact ITX casing ...


I'm also looking for ASRock Q1900DC-ITX, this model no need PSU, just use some ASUS or Toshiba selected notebook's adapter will do.  But I can't find it here in Malaysia, my Hong Kong friend also can't there.  I might look up TaoBao on my next trip to China ...
