    This might go well with the carnetix p1900/p2140 leaving plenty of room to spare for other regulated accessories. Can't wait to fool around with a sample.
    The reviews are listed at the product Zotac product websites I linked to above. Just click te "Media Reviews" tab.
    They also list a third review besides the two you already linked to.

    Click "Download full product specifications" at the bottom right corner of the two product links I posted above.

    If you still can't find it just click here: http://www.zotac.com/httpdocs/brochu...ION-ITX_v3.pdf

    Here's what the 19V, 90W AC/DC adaptor looks like:

    Here is another review. He has it using fewer watts than the SINGLE CORE intel board.

    So how does it compare to the Intel D945GCLF2 in non-DXVA/non-gaming usage?

    That is due to the power supply. These numbers were all at the wall, and the normal ATX PSU Anand used is not that efficient at that low a wattage. He didn't have a Pico-PSU and brick to try with. The guy on staff who has the stuff to measure power requirements directly is somewhere over in Europe, so they would have to ship the motherboards over there to get direct numbers.

    Do you have a contact over at anandtech? I have talked with Anand in the past, but he probably isn't working on this. They could test voltage levels with a p2140 and the PSUMONI software. http://carnetix.com/P2140/CNXP2140.htm . I can probably get approval to lend a tester a 2140. We haven't been able to get the boards yet.

    i see a mention of using the P1900 with this board. I got my mac mini stolen out of truck recently and am looking for a replacement setup. It seems the Acer Revo or maybe this Zotac board would be a good fit. I'm also considering the Intel chipset after reading this http://forums.fluxmedia.net/off-topi...mainboard.html . What would you guys recommend? Will this Zotac work with my P1900 somehow? I see the P1900 is dc-dc converter that outputs 19v which seems like the right thing to me. How about performance? Any thoughts on running Centrafuse and IGuidance on these different low power options?

    Thanks in advance.

    I am using CF with my LF2 dual-core Atom board, and I have both iGuidance and Destinator installed. It generally runs quite smoothly, the only time I notice lag is when opening XM or HD radio for the first time there is a few second pause (which might be related to initializing the hardware as well). I don't do anything with video, so can't comment on whether that is smooth or not.
