    Interesting you say that. My project started off life by looking at attaching this device to an LCD display. How does this chipset compare to the T7500 with GM965? I'm guessing it pulls a lot less power but is a lot less powerful.

    The lack of support for MacOS is an issue (not that we would run it illegally or anything). It is also quite deep again. This seems to be a big issue with the smaller boards. I can go up to 5.25" if necessary but no thicker than 25mm. I've looked at the nano boards too but would prefer something that is at least as powerful as the T7500.

    LS-372 is only slightly larger than the Pico board and is vastly beyond it in terms of horsepower.

    I have the T7500 with mine and it in no way takes 70 watts. more like 20 or less at idle and 40 or 50 at load. The T7X00 series CPUs only consume 35W max and have a throttle-down feature and RAM should be just a couple of watts with SO-DIMMs. The northbridge and other MB stuff are from the GME965, a laptop chipset, so they shouldn't consume much, probably 10W max (just a guess). You could probably reach close to 70W if you ran every single device at full load (extremely unlikely).

    The northbridge heatsink is very tall, but if you have an alternate means of cooling and know what you are doing you should be fine in removing it. The CPU just has a small screw-on fan that can be replaced.

    Thanks for that. I can cope with 40-50 load and 20 on idle. I guess it's time to bite the bullet and actually order one.

    Cool. It's really a nice board (from my experience).
