    10 usb ports on back if you dare to use them all, wifi via mini pci and you can run i5 cpu's. now we can encode blurays on the go hahaha. esata for your removable media drives too...

    just when i thought my 9300 was good enough...:sigh:

    zotac has been kicking out a lot of nice, new boards recently(or maybe i just started paying attention...)

    your 9300 is better then the on-chip intel hd that comes on the i3 or i5 though. this is just nice because you can have energy efficient 4 core computing with video good enough for hd playback (even though the cpu can do it alone anyway). it does do bit streaming for the audio too i hear.

    honestly im torn between this or an ion setup for a toolbox-boombox im planning. the ion is just fast enough for media playback, and would probably allow twice the battery life, but this h55 chipset would allow it to be a gaming box if i wanted.....

    Ah, I've ordered mine, should be with me next week.

    Pairing it with an i3 530 and 2x 2gb ram, and Intel G2 X25-M ssd.

    Have all the components, except the board - can hardly wait....

    Think we can get a review of your new setup? Very interested in how this performs (although I have an idea already).

    the i3 is awesome... if you overclock it to 4ghz, it can be fairly amazing. but even at stock, its pretty much an e8400 as far as real world performace is.

    I'm slightly confused. From the NewEgg Specs:
    Onboard Video
    Onboard Video Chipset None
    ......
    Video Ports DVI
    HDMI 1 x HDMI
    .....

    I can see the connectors...but what do they actually connect to. Is that the H55 chipset?

    Heya VG,
    This board uses Clarkedale processor, i.e on-chip graphics - and yes, H55
