As far ASRock CoreHT wireless goes, you get Moving onto what comes with the system, ASRock has a pretty good bundle included. Putting the system aside, ASRock CoreHT get a new style MCE remote control which is smaller than the ones in the past, looks better and is far lighter. There is also a handy quick start guide which gives you some good tips on how to get the system up and running for the first time.
Something which ASRock has been including for some time now is the anti-slip pad not to be confused with a mouse ASRock CoreHT This is rather good since the surface of the system is rather shiny and smooth. There is an included CD with all the drivers and apps which work with the CoreHT - there are some good ones and even one called "ASRock Extreme Tuning Utility" which allows you to overclock your system within Windows and monitor temperatures and adjust fan speeds - I was impressed at this from a ASRock CoreHT.

Moving on, ASRock includes some other bits and pieces that might seem insignificant, but it's good to see they ASRock CoreHT them anyway in case the user ends up having a need for them. Inside the system is where the magic and engineering mastery is really shown.
We were a ASRock CoreHT concerned if heat would be a problem since this is ASRock's highest performing HTPC to date, but we did not experience any problems. We saw the CPU running at around 45c, which is a little warmer than you might usually want in a ASRock CoreHT desktop system, but no problem at all for a system this size - in fact, rather good.
One of the downsides of this product is that there is ASRock CoreHT room or potential for adding ASRock CoreHT extra devices such as PCI Express cards, but thinking over this, it's not really an issue since ASRock has you well covered with a large amount of connectivity options as default. As far as performance goes, there are only good things to report.
We played an assortment of movie files ASRock CoreHT SD all the way up to p and the system was completely flawless at playing them back - and the same with Blu-ray movies. The ASRock CoreHT side of things is fantastic too with pass through of audio over HDMI to an amp - it worked flawlessly.
ASRock CoreHT 252B Review
Intel have never been strong when ASRock CoreHT comes to onboard graphics and the HD Graphics IGP while a little better than previous chips is not going to give you a great gaming experience. You ASRock CoreHT be looking at buying this system for gaming, though, since it is designed to sit nicely in your lounge room and act as a solid home theatre PC, maybe with some very light gaming here and there.
While this provides adequate performance for the job, it can be vastly improved with the inclusion of an ASRock CoreHT. I've already hit up Corsair to send one of their Force Series 3 GB drives over for this system and as soon as it arrives, it will be going in and the performance will be rapidly improved in terms of boot up, loading of ASRock CoreHT and so on.
On second thoughts, maybe I think this way because ASRock CoreHT of my systems ASRock CoreHT my office and house have SSDs and when I use a system with a "spinner", it feels slow. Unsurprisingly, this resulted in by far the worst graphics performance we had seen in recent time from an Asrock mini PC.
Thankfully, Asrock got its act together with the Vision 3D, outfitting the system with Intel's Core ASRock CoreHT processors the flagship model carried a Core iM. The company also kept the HM55 chipset but made one noteworthy change with the Vision 3D: But it's good enough for ASRock CoreHT gamers, as it provides the bare minimum for playable performance.
The Vision 3D was a huge step forward in becoming the perfect HTPC in our opinion, as it allowed ASRock CoreHT to do a bit of everything. In the end, ASRock CoreHT crowned Asrock's Vision 3D the ultimate small form factor computer and with that, we looked forward to what the company would deliver next.
