  • Commell board, Q35 chipset, opinions?

    What do you guys think? Looks to me like the most powerful Mini-ITX yet. You could run some fast CPU/RAM combos...plus RAID 1, 0, 5, or 10

    Commell LV-678



    Here's a similar IBase one:

    Are you buying one?

    I got my 679 today with a T7100. Looks very similar. It had a great quality sense to it.

    Expectations are high, but I have not got the solid state disc yet. They are so d*mn expensive...

    I'm tempted to get a poweramp with SPDIF input...

        I am going the SPDIF route too. I just got an 8 foot TosLink cable for 20 bucks. Now I just need to buy a processor to plug it into...

          Hi galvitron

          Cleaning up in my subscriptions :-) and found that I left this one hangin in the air.

          I saw that you bought a smaller formfactor mobo eventually.

          Are you still going SPDIF? What poweramp will you be using with the SPDIF? Or will you use a SPDIF-RCA converter? (if there is such a thing)

            I will keep the Toslink all the way to the trunk and connect to the Zapco processor. It is controllable via PC and USB cable and is very nice. It accepts multiple digital inputs and outputs balanced stereo to the amps.

                Haha. Nice unit. I haven't bought it yet...waiting for my tax return. Need to get the amps to go with it...cha-ching!

                    That's a good price...can't buy yet though.

                      Hello galvitron and bes,

                      To: galvitron have you thought about which cpu to get yet seeing as this uses a LGA775 socket? I use the E6700 and it get's hot under pressure not even the 3-fans can cool it down under 90deg's in the summer's heat winter is a different story..
                      • If you don't get it the first time around, go get seconds..

                        Actually I already bought a different Commell board, the LS-371. I have the T7500 CPU and it runs VERY cool because it is a 45nm CPU.

                          Ahh, I was kinda hoping you'd get it and give it a review as I'm looking for a second mobo..

                            Maybe for my other car. I have a spare PSU so that's a start. I will need to buy a new screen though

                            The CPUs for this board will indeed run very hot. They consume about 65W peak if you go with the 45nm (Newer Core 2 Duos).
