I have had a third failure of the C2750D4I MB in my minis. The MB is no longer available and ASrock wants $280 for repair. I really don’t want to spend any money on a failure-prone MB.
After much questioning of iX Systems, they tell me that the MB they currently use in the mini is an asrock c3338-d2i-4l that is “custom made” for them. Probably true because it is not listed on the asrock website. However bhphoto and swt are selling it.
They said they could sell me one (no price given), but could not provide any documentation or confirm it would work in an older mini. That doesn’t make sense because the only parts left of the old mini are the disk drives and power supply.
The quad core version, C3558D4I-4L is available on Amazon but draws twice the power.
Any comments or advice?
