Summary: hi all my review on this little motherboard is positive meaning it is worth its price and its made by asus so a great feature i did get to use is the overclock its great,and i got the little dual core prosesor to run from 1.6ghz to 2.25ghz at a really stable performance and it doesent get hot it...
Summary: powers my HTPC in the living room and works like a charm. Runs windows 7 and WMC without any problems. Doesn't get loud at all and from what I can tell it doesn't overheat. Outputs 1080p via HDMI, plays blu-rays excellently, and outputs 5.1 sound to my receiver. I really couldn't be happier!
Summary: At first I was concerned that this little guy wouldn't have enough muscle to do what I wanted, but my fears were quickly allayed. Since nVidia uses the CUDA engine, you can use CoreAVC 2.0 with filters (such as subtitles) flawlessly on even the most demanding of videos.
Quiet, low power, can handle HULU and 1080p after drivers updates

Summary: Media Center PC: 3GB RAM, 320Gb 7200 3.5' HDD, Win 7, Apex MI-100, DVD/Blue-ray/HDDVD drive. Must install drivers from supplied CD and update Windows and video and chipset drivers directly from Nvidia. Overclocked to 2.01Ghz.
Excellent for a small form factor PC build, such as an HTPC

Summary: I bought this motherboard / CPU combo for an HTPC build over the holidays. As it was an HTPC build, key selection criteria included HDMI output, bluetooth and, of course, a very small form factor.
Summary: I decided to build myself a low-power Media Center PC to act as a media file server, torrent server, and a DVR replacement. It works quite nicely for the most part, as the GPU can accelerate most of the more difficult movies. There are still some files it can't quite handle (i.e. big mkv's).
Summary: Schysst moderkort, fläkten går ej att höra på mitt exemplar, så jag är nöjd på ljudfronten. Det hade verkligen inte skadat med fler SATA-portar (3st + 1 E-SATA), annars är det riktigt schysst.
Summary: Bra fungerande moderkort med en alldeles för högljud fläkt och då menar jag verkligen sjukt högljud. Ska man använda moderkortet i en HTPC (vilket jag antar att 90% av alla som köper detta moderkort ska) så måste den bytas ut.
