HASH(0xa2f45498) out of 5 stars Runs Like A Champ Dec 31 2010

I unboxed this motherboard, mounted in the case, installed 2GB of RAM, connected the cables and it fired right up.
Very easy to setup this motherboard. I easily installed Windows XP SP3 from a DVD that I had burned then updated all of the drivers from the CD included with this mobo. Performance is snappy. Task Manager shows 4 CPUs.

I have only had it up and running for a few hours but everything seems stable thus far.

This is my second build using an Intel Atom mini-ITX combo. Very satisfied. I built my first one in a similar configuration almost 2 years ago. Both boxes use an Apex MI-008 mini-ITX case.

Tip: Pick up some shorter SATA cables.

Update after 1 week: Still running great. Web pages load in a snap. It even runs older pc games (circa 2000) with ease. Onboard video with Acer G205H Bbd 20-Inch Widescreen LCD Display (Black) looks fabulous.

HASH(0xa2f46c9c) out of 5 stars linux friendly May 15 2011
By Jason P - Published on Amazon.com
I have this board running my NAS and ushare under Ubuntu 10.04.1.
No issues with drivers or anything and it works MUCH better for streaming than my windows 7 PC that consumed over 5x the power.
I can't comment on the graphics however as I have the system headless and use webmin for remote administration.

8 Months later and it's still kicking. It's on nearly 24/7 and there have been no issues whatsoever. (Electric bills have been friendly as well. my kill-a-watt has my current setup with this board running around 28 watts.

HASH(0xa2f46ef4) out of 5 stars Runs great! Jan. 20 2011

Setup was easy, the motherboard came with two SATA cables, so you don't need to buy any of those beforehand.

Comes with a disk full of all the needed drivers so you don't need to download them all.

This + a WD Caviar Green 1TB SATA drive scores 3.1 on Windows Experience Index - the bottleneck being the graphics (the CPU scores 3.5)

HASH(0xa2f4a24c) out of 5 stars Great so far March 24 2011

I was only able to put Windows 7 on it so far. The install was faster than usual. Im using Crucial CT2KIT25664BC1067 4GB 204-PIN PC3-8500 SODIMM DDR3 Memory KIT (2GBx2) and Western Digital 2 TB Caviar Green SATA Intellipower 64 MB Cache Bulk/OEM Desktop Hard Drive WD20EARS. Booted nicely. Initially I had some minor hiccups as i didnt seat the DIMM0 RAM properly and it did not post. Then after it was stopping midway in posting because of my Optical drive which i used to install Windows.

I will update this as time goes on. So far I am very happy.

HASH(0xa2f4a498) out of 5 stars Works great March 8 2011

I'm using this board in a non-mechanical setup, so there are no fans. It has performed solidly day-to-day for a couple weeks, including a couple sessions doing things like fractal generation a particle simulation. Although I imagine that it isn't doing those CPU-heavy tasks as fast as a power-hungry CPU.

The average CPU temperature is about 100F (38C) while browsing and 110F (43C) when doing CPU-intensive tasks. I consider this excellent, especially considering there are no fans moving air. Power consumption of the entire system is under 25 watts.

Other parts of my system:
-OCZ 32 GB Onyx SSD
-Crucial 4 GB DDR3
-Antec Mini-ITX Case ISK100
-OS: Fedora 14 with LXDE window manager
