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.
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.
