The E35M1-M PRO - A Closer Look

Asus E35M1-M PRO Micro ATX

A Closer Look


Another day, another Asus box. The design theme may not have changed much however we would rather see a starving marketing department over a cash throttled R&D division.

Inside you will find the usual suspects; a manual, I/O shield, Q Connector and two SATA cables. More than enough to bring your new computer to life.

Underneath the false floor you will find the E35M1-M PRO motherboard. As you can probably tell, it is of Micro ATX form factor, although Asus have decided to not exercise the full 9.6" x 9.6" size allowance. If it cuts the overall cost of the board without losing functionality, we really do not mind.

Feature rich is definitely a term to describe this product. Despite being an entry level platform, Asus have provided 5 internal SATA 6.0Gb/sec ports at your disposal with scope for up to 14 USB ports, of which 2 are of 3.0 standard.

You won't be lost for video outputs either as the E35M1 should agree with any user, from the cheapskate with the 15" CRT on DSUB, through to the HTPC user with the 50" 1080p HDTV.

AMD Fusion seems like the perfect choice for a HTPC, a few questions, is this capable of 3D? Also does it upscale well?Quote

Hi Zeals,

As the new HD 6310 GPU supports UVD 3.0, this means that DivX decoding is now included (on top of the existing MPEG2/H.264) and also Blu-Ray 3D support. However neither Asus or AMD have clearly stated that the HD 6310 will decode 3D well. I suppose this will become more clear as time goes on however my initial impressions are that a HTPC for higher end functionality such as 3D support or anything else that may command some more CPU horse power is probably better off with a conventional CPU and dedicated GPU.

I hope that helpsQuote

Go for it bro!

Pros: you'll have the coolest running 18W CPU on the block. WooHoo! Bragging rights.

Cons: You'll probably need to work on the mount - I don't see the usual AM3 hardware on that board. And do you figure £150 or more on a full-tower case to accommodate the Noctua is about right for a rig like this? An HAF-X or a Lanboy Air would be quite stylish.
