  • What board/CPU to get ?

    My goal is to have a CarPC that provides GPS navigation, OBD-2 monitoring and maybe some added gizmos like rear-view cam and WiFi. Music & video playback are very low on my list. A short POST time is important !

    With this in mind, which of the following boards (found at newegg) would you recommend or warn against based on your first-hand experience ?

    VIA EPIA-CN10000EG 1.0GHz VIA C7 nanoBGA2 Embedded Processor VIA CN700 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Set - Retail
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813181021

    VIA EPIA-MII12000 VIA C3 1.2GHz Processor VIA CLE266 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Set - Retail
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813181012

    VIA EPIA-EK8000E 800MHz VIA Luke CoreFusion Processor Mini ITX Motherboard and CPU - Retail
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813181023

    VIA EPIA-SP13000 VIA C3 1.3GHz Processor VIA CN400 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Set - Retail

    I have left out the Jetway board combos since I am not familiar with that company and the quality of their products.

    Search this forum for each of those boards, and read what you find. You will find issues of several variations with each motherboard. IN fact, you will find issues with almost ALL motherbords, some are easier then others to overcome.

    You need to do a lot of research, or just buy the cheapest, and try and overcome any issues that arise.

      The search results are not tremendously useful- too much noise. Reading that people want to order board XYZ anytime real soon now doesn't help. Neither do I care how SPDIF output can be enabled.

      I am just looking for some general pointers as in "This board is too slow for CarPC use" or "Tends to overheat" or "Runs great with XP".
