    I'd have to agree on this as well. This would probably be the most popular board to date, as it works great, and lasts FOREVER barring any manufacturer defect. I'm still running an EPIA 800 for the time being, as my other board died. Commell (spelling?) boards are extremely popular as well, and are marketed as industrial boards, can handle extreme temps, etc.

    But I would also agree that the EPIA series are very low performers, and would also not recommend them for an install.

    To the OP, what mobo's have you gone thru?

    Right?

    what about POST time? isn't that important? to you? I don't know. I"ll be sure not to talk about it here.

    Tally away.

    I still chuckle when I see that TRS80C in your sig.

You replace the surface problem, the underlying one will surface over and over until you fix it.
    Ya you would think that no?

    Car is putting out the proper voltage (13.3 - 14.0), and the ground is good. As far as I can see, the only connection to the car is providing it power/acc and ground.
    The next place to look would be the PSU (originaly an M3 atx 160w, replaced with another M3 atx 160w) which the vendor has checked, and says all the lines are putting out what they should be.
    Its shielded, mounted in the passenger compartment, with good ventillation out of direct sunlight, so heat my be a factor, but its not due to the install.

    So bearing in mind that Im not looking to turn this into a help thread, just wanted the information, I dont see why the mb's have gone south.

    If you look back on the posts on the first mb that was in there, you will find the Jetway ...pos post. Apparently Im not alone in having that board go south. Thats what the vendor used and recommended, said he sold three tousand of them, who was I to argue.
    I replaced it with an MSI Fuzzy 945 GM1, anyone care to cast dispersion on that mb? Would anyone say that was an uninformed choice?

    I need to change mine to Jetway JNC62K. Just got it installed today. We'll see... And if anyone asks, I use PQI memory.

    Habious;

    There is already a pretty good sticky on all the boards available, as well as a wealth of information on mb reviews available via search here.

    What I wanted to see, is what people are currently using. Just a straight snapshot of what the numbers are, how many of these, how many of those.

    Sorry about the clutter, I seem to have attracted a few well meaning souls who are bent on showing me the error of my ways.

    Thanks for your response

    I bought the system from a vendor who used the Jetway J9F2 - KHDE. Well known vendor and looking at the specs, the board seemed great. Worked ok for a few weeks, then little by little started to go, no video on post. A second one was installed, same thing, worked for a while. Got to the point that I had to d/c and reconnect the vga cable each time it started up. Other than that, it worked well when it worked.
    I found a post on the Jetway that pretty much said it was a p.o.s, some other people have had board failures. I wasnt in a position to tell the vendor how to build his product, but I lost faith in that particular board, so we switched to the MSI Fuzzy 945 GM1, which worked just about perfectly as soon as we dropped it in, right up until it died about two weeks after install. Im not too enthused with the ventillation he is using in his cases. There are two 40mm fans, looked like it should work well, but when we opened it one of the fans might have been stalled by a cable that expanded and rubbed against it (two hard drives). I had him remount the drives differently, on a bracket, so that should not happen again. It is possible that heat killed the MSI, but I got no warnings (no lockups, no temp alarms) and it worked perfectly (Nav, MP3, CF, Standby/resume...not a hitch) until it died. Whatever, when this all gets straightened out, Im gonna modify the case he uses and put an additional fan.

    Thanks, I looked at your results and do not see any Intel D201GLY(x)... did you not count mine?

    Out of genuine curiosity will you be asking for the list of boards that have been tried and replaced? That is marginally more interesting to me. I know I have used four over the years.... Not sure if i can remember all of them though.

    Yes, you should search... and Yes, It has been covered before!

    Read the FAQ!
