    Anyone tried a Zotac board

    I have been looking at a Zotac mini itx board as it offers quite a bit more than the intel boards. I just have never heard of them and wanted to know the success rate of them.

    I love mine, I'm a fan. Haven't had any problems with the two that I have - but in all fairness I've only used 'em both maybe 5-6hours each.

    same, here. I got the 9300itx wifi as a VM/NAS machine since it was the only mini-itx to support 8GB of RAM. i was surprised i hadn't heard more of it before a month or so ago since it has so many great features.

    I have the 8200 ITX WIFI which is the AMD/NVidia version. I'm running an underclocked X2 5000e. I was going to use this in the car but it wouldn't play nice with my M2-ATX, so I'm going with a dual-core atom. I'll use the Zotac for a new HTPC in the house.

    The Zotac is very solid and well-made.

    i was also looking into this one as it seems to have quite a lot of features. I was trying to decide between that one and the intel board.

    it may be overkill for a car pc unless you need the graphics power. it's perfect for an HTPC with HDMI, eSATA, and the 9300 GPU.

    I don't know about overkill, or perfect for HTPC depending on your set-up and how much it has to handle.

    Fairly good article about it at anandtech.

    To me, it's perfect for a car install, decent options later down the road, and will handle blue-ray disks should you wish to play them in the car later down the road as well. The previous models fell more than a bit short of seamless in that regard as I understand.
