  • Mini-ITX Powerfull motherboard

    Hi,
    Im looking new motherboard for my system. I have Travla C137 Mini-ITX Case which support Mini-ITX motherboards. But I think I can put Micro ATX motherboard into it too...
    So my requirements:
    -Support for QUAD/Extreme Intel CPU socket 755
    -PCI slot(PCI slot that does NOT internally share resources) - VERY IMPORTANT because I will have Sound card in this slot
    -Have VGA and HDMI output
    -Min. 4 Backplate USB
    -S3 Sleep Support - VERY IMPORTANT (I will run Hibryd sleep)
    -Windows 7 Support - VERY IMPORTANT
    -SATAII (I will run SSD)
    -Fast BIOS POST

    Reccomended:
    -WIFI onboard
    -

    I DON'T need floppy, IDE, IEEE1394

    Is there any Mini-ITX board which meet my requirements?

    If I will buy Micro ATX then looks Zotac GF9300-A-E right choise but must ask manufacturer about PCI slot's...

    Curently use Jetway NF93-LF and intel P8400 CPU but motherboard give me a lot of headache because share PCI slot resources with:
    -Integrated graphiic card
    -Mini PCI Express slot
    -USB devices
    -SATA controller
    ...
    And have big problems with crackling sound. Also CPU is not powerfull enought to run all things I need...

    Thanks for any help...

    Zotac GF9300-I-E or GF9300-G-E board is mini-itx and is just what you need. Not sure about the PCI slot, but should work well with your sound card because zotac is a pretty reputable company.

      Both are not option for my system because do not have PCI slot. They have only PCI Express slot...

            Any of these (they all have PCI slot[s] and SATA)

              Dg45fc.. I love this mobo so much i'm buying a second one to make a htpc. Its compatible with core 2 duo/ quad core CPUS. All the power in the world. It runs CF3 high graphics profile with visualizations running at 3-6% cpu with an e8400 processor. HD video and HD audio ready from the box. 10 USB ports.

                I would have to vote for the Zotac 9300 strictly for the onboard geforce graphics card.

                  Save your pennies for Zotac's newest ITX.

                    why worry about quick post speed if you're using s3 sleep anyway?
                    it'll limit your selection choice quite a bit and it doesn't really change the performance.

                      Because I will use hibryd sleep and if PC is more than 2h in S3 PSU cut of power and next time I turn it it make hibernate, this is reason for need quick POST... So when I just go to shop it turn on from S3 when I lave it over night it resume from hibernate...

                        what kind of battery are u using? what psu?
                        because you can leave a car on s3 sleep a lot longer than you might think. Mine is setup for voltage instead of a timer, so if my battery's voltage drop below 12.3V (or whatever i like) the psu will hard shutdown. And I've left my car for 2 - 3 days without hard shutdown happening.
                        I drive my car everyday so it has to stay on s3 at least 12h/day which has never been a problem.

                            I have few 3 battery's in my car. 2x Fiamm FLB400(100Ah 4000A) and 1x another battery with 70Ah 2500A which will be replaced with Fiamm FLB300(75Ah 3000A). But I have little hungry audio system:
                            Audison VRX 2.400(2x250WRMS at 4Ohm and 12.6V)
                            Audison VRX 4.300(4x110WRMS at 4Ohm and 12.6V)
                            Audison VRX 1.500(1x2000WRMS at 1Ohm and 13,8V)

                            All 3 amplifiers are AB class. Reason why I don't want leave it more than 2h in S3 is that I don't want to much empty battery which can effect on my audio system...

                            Atom CPU is not powerfull enought. Currently I have Intel P8400 CPU which is Dual Core 2.4GHz and with very simple audio processing I get 20-40% CPU usage. In mode which I would like use this CPU can handle only two channel when I add aditional two all start crackling and stuttering...

                              I would imagine it isn't powerful enough for him.

                              Although I do question why you say the cpu isn't powerful enough? An 8400 is a pretty good everyday processor, what are you doing on a carpc to use it up?

                              I like the Zotac boards, I've done two builds for people with them and had no problems. Great bang for buck feature wise, and I didn't have any driver problems. I used the mini-itx 9300 though.

                              A quick power search on newegg reveals nothing, although they don't carry much in the ways of mini-itx. A good 75 results in matx tho. http://www.mini-itx.com/store/?c=49 <- that is a 775 socket mini itx with a pci slot, you will have to read through for the other features... Its an Intel DG41MJ.
