  • Motherboard for new CarPC install

    I am putting together a carpc for the first time and ordered this MB:

    It's an ASRock ION 330 what do you guys think.

    I Hope an M2-ATX will be enough to power this, my 8" lilliput, usb powered dvd drive, SSD, GPS antenna, and a couble of usb HID devices.

    What do you think?

        I went ahead and ordered this board. I read a review and with a burn in test maxing out both cores I NEVER drew more that 40w. That's pretty good, should be low heat too. for $124 it's not overkill on budget and gives room for plenty of expansion. I wnat to run a second video zone eventually for the kids as well. 2 Player SNES in the back seat FTW. I mean I this board, 2 GB of CAS lat. 7 ddr3 and a 64 GB ssd for less than 300. I'm excited.

          On another note, Win7 starter (what probably is on the laptop) is ****. I bought my wife a netbook with a single core atom and it ran like crap. I threw win 7 unltimate 32bit and looked up a couple site for optimization settings and it runs great. not an outstanding multitasking machine but it's more than adaquate for her.
