    What Motherboard are you using?

    This is a simple effort to give us an opportunity to glean some very useful information from the members.

    We have a lot of information here on the sight, you could read for days and days, until you uncover just about any opinion or position you are looking for.

    The problem at times is, just too much information.

    This post is an effort to circumvent opinion or specific discussion of problems or benefits of any particular hardware.

    I really hope it doesnt degenerate into a general discussion on why a particular user feels a particular MB is the best or the best value.

    It is just a simple question :

    Which motherboard are you currently using in your car pc ?

    Thats it, nothing else required (and anything else you post will lessen the value of the info you may otherwise be able to gain).

    The idea here is just to log, in one place, what everyone is using. We dont need to know why, we dont need to know what you used in the past, or why you switched to what you are using. All we need to know is, what you are using now.

    Hopefully, if enough people respond, we may get a picture of what some of the most popular hardware solutions people have come up with are. If we see that any one MB comes up as being in use by any significant portion, we may be ale to take that as an indiaction that that MB may be somewhat more stable, or a better value, or it just works.

    Please, just post what you are currently using as follows:

    Jetway J9f2 - KHDE


    MSI Fuzzy 945 GM1

    Try it, just the MB, lets see what happens.

    But I think this thread is rather useless... You should build the CarPC on components that work for you, not on those that work for others. Other threads with opinions have them because there are pros and cons to each.

    I think this thread has potential to be more. Perhaps people can include some personal feedback via pros and cons of their mobo.

    VIA EPIA MKII-10000
    - it's Mini-ITX so it fits in tight spaces
    - it's very power efficient (about 26 watts under full load)
    - Does what I need it to do - GPS, MP3, etc
    - Hybernates without any issues
    - it has a serial port (important to me)

    - It's becoming dated (4 years old)
    - It doesn't support the native resolution of my 7" Lilliput
