AMD’s leading systems partner Sapphire Technology today unveiled its first mainboard designed for the newly released Fusion APUs. The Pure White Fusion E350M1W mainboard is a mini-ITX mainboard and has been created in close collaboration with AMD.

The mainboard features AMD’s latest E350 – Zacate APU with the Hudson-M1 (A50M) chip from AMD as its companion. The combination allows the E350M1W mainboard to deliver full DX 11 capability to three display outputs, any two of which can be used simultaneously. The board also has sufficient space for up to 4GB of DDR3 system memory. The five 6Gb/s SATA III ports provide connectivity for HDDs and optical drives, while the rear panel accommodates an additional eSATA 3Gb/s connector for connecting external disk drives.  

I/O connectivity is available through eight USB 2.0 ports and two USB 3.0 ports, while Gigabit Ethernet connectivity has been provided using a Marvell 88E8057 Gigabit controller. The Atheros AR3011 all-CMOS, single chip solution provide Bluetooth support. The mainboard also boasts of 8-channel high-definition audio with optical S/PDIF output.

The board can also be easily expanded using the two slots – a PCI-Express and a Mini PCI-Express provided. The PCI-Express slot is a 2.0 x16 one that facilitates expansion with a VGA card, while the Mini PCI-Express 2.0 x1 connector is a general purpose slot.

While the board is fully loaded in terms of features, Sapphire has managed to keep the Pure White Fusion E3501W at a very low power profile. This plus the mini-ITX form factor allow make the E3501W a great board for small format and embedded systems.

Enthusiasts no doubt will be looking forward to get their hands on the board, but Sapphire has not been generous with details of either the release date or the pricing.

This is my pc specs and I'm pretty sure I've done everything right.
Is there any way I can check if my motherboard is 100% working because I suspect it to maby be a little bit faulty.
Please reply.

Make sure you have the 24 pin and 8 pin power connections plugged into the motherboard.

And be sure you have the memory in the white slots only.

30-12-2010, 20:09:16

ty for response. but isn't the 8 pin realy a 4 x2 pin?
i've anyway tried both so, nice if you have some more tips ;)

Is there an on button on your motherboard. If so unplug the front panel connectors..... ie on and off switches and use the one on the motherboard.

30-12-2010, 20:34:15

I didn't find any on/off switch on the motherboard, I think its really wierd that nothing else. but some small lights are working, not even the LED's or fans...
I have thought about this for the last 12 hours and I realy don't know whats wrong, its obviusly power in the motherboard and all the devices is powered, if anyone have had the same or similar motherboard and could tell me where all the small wires were supposed to be, I would be really happy for any information no matter how stupid...

Your motherboard manual should tell you that.

Even if some lights on your motherboard are working, the board itself might still be fried. I've had it happen to me. Seems like yours is DOA though, mine wasn't. My suggestion is to RMA it if the vendor doesn't have some sort of warranty on top of the manufacturer's warranty. If the vendor does (commonly a 15 day warranty), send it to them and they will replace it at their cost. Assuming its actually fried and you have everything connected properly.

Check if the CPU is placed properly, you might have a bent pin

Check the memory sticks are in the right slots, refer to the motherboard manual. I built a h55 i5 750 rig and missed that, put 2 stick in the 1st and 3rd, like on the old core 2 build, it didn't post

I've sorted it out :)
The problem was that the led, on/off switch etc. was not correctly connected the color coding was wrong and I finaly found out where in the motherboard manual the right "settings" were.

Thanks for all the help
