  • Looks like ASUS want a piece of this cake...

    Looks like a copy of the Zotac D-E mobo, but was it that hard to solder a DVI port like zotac did ?

    i just got my hands on this board a few days ago, so far it is awesome. It has a HDMI port instead of DVI, which is fine with me since it's part of a htpc build.

          Why does it matter when it has an HDMI port instead?
          You can just use a HDMI to DVI cable/adapter

            Yes HDMI is actually better than DVI because HDMI can carry audio through the cable also.

            Here is mine so far:

              Here is an updated pic, I put a really quiet 80 mm fan over the heat sink and ram to keep both cooled. It's much quieter now. I see why Asus put a small 40mm fan embedded in the heat sink, it is to retain the 1U server height restriction. Fortunately I am using a 2U size chassis

                    what do you think about putting one in the car ?

                    it seems to good to be true ! ,
                    in my country it's price is abit less than double from the D945GCLF2,
                    worth the money ?

                      I'm using a Norco 2U server chassis, the shallow version, it's like 16" deep.

                      Right now I am running with a MicroATX 300W power supply.

                      I actually bought this for car use but I am testing it in the house first. I streamed a blu-ray movie through it yesterday and it worked very well, so far the board seems very snappy with stripped XP pro on it. So far I have not messed with the bluetooth but everything else seems to be in order. Sound is fantastic on the via chipset.

                      Also since the Atom has H.T. ability, the OS sees this board as having 4 cores

                      ION video is nice, right now its pushing a 37" Olevia HDTV over the HDMI connection. Running at 1080 resolution.

                        Well I upgraded this ASUS ITX system to a 32Gb SSD and windows 7 ultimate. Honestly I think it runs better with win 7 which is a surprise. Perhaps it has something to do with being able to run newer directx versions, but more likely it's the speed of the SSD.

                          your video chipset is accelerating the gui in win7 faster then a cpu does in xp, along with a slew of indexing and file sorting enhancements the ssd is making shine like you said too. there are so many things that rely on quick file acquisition...

                            Hi I have an older version of intel atom mobo D945GCLF, I want to replace this because is too slow. I'm testing centrafuse 3.0 and is very slow and can't play videos in HD

                            Compared with the regular intel D945GCLF in your word, how much fast is this solution ?

                              Both xp and win7 support hardware acceleration - its only vista that didn't. File indexing actually has very little effect....other then search and a few corner cases.

                              Most of the advantages you are seeing are win7s better use of multiple cores, prefetching and ssd optimizations (if its detected as an ssd).
