    I'm using a Norco 2U server chassis, the shallow version, it's like 16" deep.

    Right now I am running with a MicroATX 300W power supply.

    I actually bought this for car use but I am testing it in the house first. I streamed a blu-ray movie through it yesterday and it worked very well, so far the board seems very snappy with stripped XP pro on it. So far I have not messed with the bluetooth but everything else seems to be in order. Sound is fantastic on the via chipset.

    Also since the Atom has H.T. ability, the OS sees this board as having 4 cores

    ION video is nice, right now its pushing a 37" Olevia HDTV over the HDMI connection. Running at 1080 resolution.

    Well I upgraded this ASUS ITX system to a 32Gb SSD and windows 7 ultimate. Honestly I think it runs better with win 7 which is a surprise. Perhaps it has something to do with being able to run newer directx versions, but more likely it's the speed of the SSD.

    your video chipset is accelerating the gui in win7 faster then a cpu does in xp, along with a slew of indexing and file sorting enhancements the ssd is making shine like you said too. there are so many things that rely on quick file acquisition...

    Hi I have an older version of intel atom mobo D945GCLF, I want to replace this because is too slow. I'm testing centrafuse 3.0 and is very slow and can't play videos in HD

    Compared with the regular intel D945GCLF in your word, how much fast is this solution ?

    Both xp and win7 support hardware acceleration - its only vista that didn't. File indexing actually has very little effect....other then search and a few corner cases.

    Most of the advantages you are seeing are win7s better use of multiple cores, prefetching and ssd optimizations (if its detected as an ssd).

    Yes I also read that win 7 disables a few things like indexing when it detects a SSD for performance reasons. There is a whole list of optimizations that happen automatically when using a SSD, there are listed on MSDN.

    @Masaki, I run a D945GCLF in my truck PC right now and this ASUS board is is so much faster I would not even group it in the same category. Although it should be, it costs 2x as much as the D945GCLF. Really though, the performance lies in the Nvidia ION graphics chipset, which is what gives this board the muscle to stream blueray and HD content flawlessly. The old 945 chipset is just slow clunky and outdated, however it gets the job done for my carPC application. Honestly, using a small screen in a car its very hard to tell the difference between standard video and HD video. It's only when you start stretching video over 27"+ size screens that one can really take notice. At least IMO.

    is there any power sources that are DC to DC that can power this board. 300-400 watts is kind of steep

    It does not need that much power, I've read about guys using 60w power supplies without problems. I have no doubt in my mind an M2 or M4 would push this board just fine

    Thanks for the reply, I know, HD video is too much for a littel screen, but I have some videos in HD, and I prefer don't convert them when I transfer this to the carputer, my other problem as I say D945GCLF is too slow when I use centrafuse 3.0 (when I click, the program take moment to response) and when I play mp3 some times a drop ocurr.

    In my country the asus mobo are not avaiable, but the zotac is avaiable, if you say the asus mobo is much more fast than D945GCLF , then Zotac mobo is a good choice for me too...

    How much time can work your D945GCLF whith engine off? and the asus how much time will work with engine off? which battery do you use?

    this is good news
    if D945GCLF2 was the top atom board, then this took it's place?

    i think i like the audio card on the board. gives me a subwoofer output =)

    wow.. built in bluetooth??
