    Intel Boards D201GLY vs D201GLY2 vs D201GLY2A Comparision Chart & Photos

    As many of you may know the D201GLY was previously upgraded to the D201GLY2 adding a new south bridge as well as SATA ports. The Fan was also removed on this D201GLY2 revision. Intel has now announced and now shipping a D201GLY2A.

    We have called our Intel engineering team and confirmed that the only difference on the two boards (D201GLY2 vs D201GLY2A) is a fan. After taking the photos I can see a change to the cache heat sink, but that was not documented.

    As of today, both are in stock on the Mp3car Store.

    Just the fan between 2 and 2A? Whats the point of that? i guess just bulletproof cooling for the low power consumption version?

    I added a fan that moves air across both of the heat sinks on my D201GLY2. It seemed warmer than I prefer while I installed the OS on the bench.

    Me too. You couldn't comfortably put your hand on it. Adding even a tiny fan makes it barely warm.

    What heat sink did you use and how did you remove the old one?

    I didn't. I went ghetto and used a fan from a dead Via M10000. It fit snugly between the power supply board and the heatsink. It blows sideways across the heatsink. I suppose I should secure it with tape or something but it is in there nicely and I'll decide later if I need to do that.

    I reasoned (rationalized?) that if it falls off I'm no worse off than I was without it.

    According to our sales rep some undefined chassis had cooling problems on the D201GLY2 inspiring the upgrade to 2A.

    I ended up putting a cheap P3 socket 370 heatsink & fan I picked up at my local Fry's for $7. It's not low profile, but it is almost exactly the same dimensions as the original heat sink except I get a fan included in that height. The 50mm ball bearing fan is fairly quiet and it keeps the CPU cooler. The one I got is an Evercool CF-5B-H.

    Now I just need to find a similar solution for the other heat sink.



    There are some larger capacitors on either side of the processor, so you have to be careful to get a heatsink that will fit.
