Good little board for cheap, tiny desktop.

yahmez the mad, Amazon

  • Summary: I built a system for my daughter using this board, and a giant tower case that I shrunk. It has run cool and stable for 3 months. I didn't need to add any fans. Fairly quiet, just psu and northbridge fans. Fine for educational software or light gaming. It would also perform well enough for light to medium office duty. Only one DDR2 ram slot, put 2 gigs in it for best performance. My only regret was that the dual core model came out 2 weeks after I bought this one.

good Linux support + way too noisy CPU fan

Forrest Sheng Bao, Amazon
24 September 2009
  • Summary: This motherboard is cheap, small and having good support on Linux. I used Ubuntu 9.04 32-bit. I found the 64-bit version has power management problem that causes one core is running on power management all the time. But, the big pain is, after few months, the fan is getting noisy. The sound is tooooooooo loud. I am looking for a replacement for it. If you know a good alternative to the CPU fan on the board, please let me know.

Gut aber nicht super Gut

  • Summary: Mein Chipsatzlüfter war gleich defekt und hat nach 2 Tagen mega krach gemacht und war nach 4 Tagen ganz fest gefahren! - Mir wurde jedoch gleich vom Händler (kein Originallüfter) ein Ersatzlüfter geschickt, welcher zwar nicht viel leiser war, aber immerhin erstmal aushalf! Ich habe mir dann einen 40 x 40 x 10mm Lüfter von Revoltec (siehe: http://geizhals.at/eu/a169813.html ) eingebaut, welcher sogar noch leiser ist als der Papst welchen ich noch liegen hatte.

custo - benefício

  • Summary: Trabalho com montagem e manutenção de micros, já testei várias marcas e modelos de placas e processadores, dentre várias, a Intel Essential D945GCLF tem apresentado características particulares que promovem ao usuário boa satisfação, principalmente no que tange ao custo-benefício, equiparando-se a de modelos superiores, muito embora tenha limitação em sua expansão PCI.
  • Pros: Compacta, estável, bom relacionamento custo-benefício.
  • Cons: Limitação na expansão PCI, indicada mais a usuário doméstico.

Gut, aber leider noch nicht perfekt!

Der Imp, geizhals.de
7 August 2008
  • Summary: Das erste Board, bei dem die CPU unter einem winzigen Passivkühler steckt und der Chipsatz aktiv gekühlt wird - und das leider nicht wirklich leise - zumindest wenn man den Lüfter auf voller Drehzahl laufen läßt. Bei halber Drehzahl (steckt man den Lüfter an den zweiten Anschluß auf dem Board, geht das bequem per BIOS) ist's wesentlich ruhiger und der Kühlkörper wird gerade mal handwarm.
