Summary: I'm currently using this board in an Apex MI-100 case with an Intel Core i3 540 processor, 4GB of Corsair XMS3 DDR3 RAM and a Sapphire Radeon HD4550. I've installed Ubuntu and XBMC and with a little tweaking (had some v-sync issues because of the proprietary ATI drivers) this works REALLY well as an HTPC. The board has all kinds of features and plenty of ports. Haven't tried the WiFi on it because I use a gigabit ethernet network. Everything works as it should!
Summary: There are enough reviews explaining it's features and what is cool and not-so-cool about the board. But apparently there weren't enough telling everybody about what could happen if you use a "supported" i7 CPU with the board. I built the entire system around this board, a nice Silverstone SG07 case and an I7-860 CPU. Everything went along just fine until I ran it through a few burn-in tests. It passed my first 10 minute round of Prime95 testing.
Summary: I am currently writing this review with my ZOTAC H55ITX board on Ubuntu over a WIFI connection. Ubuntu was able to detect everything except for the RA Link WIFI PCIe card. RA Link does have Linux source files on their driver site. With a little bit of work I was able to get WIFI working just fine which is rare in the Linux world, normally you have to jump through hoops for WIFI.
Summary: I wanted a fast mini-ITX form factor to be used for HTPC. Everything was going ok with installation until I try accessing my HomeServer. The speed was a crawling 1Gb/s, not 10Gb/s that I'm used to with my other computers on the LAN. I thought it was because I had installed WinXP 64x platform and I didn't get the right driver, so I restarted everything from scratch with WinXP 32x, same thing happening. AArrgghhh!
Summary: Wanted to replace my PS3 with a more optioned alternative, using way less power, in my 5th wheel RV ... this system is awesome; even the built-in HD Graphics from Intel perform flawlessly on BluRay disks - no artifacts/delays. The built-in WiFi (N) is a joy. Using a Core i3 2.93Ghz Cpu and low-power 1.5Tb WD drive, I now have a very competent home media center that is small, and uses little power.
Summary: Preordered this motherboard and got it installed last week. Been testing throughout the weekend and it is a great HTPC board I have to say! Love the 10 USB ports and the 2 internal connections for up to 4 more in the case. Make sure you have HDMI audio enabled when outputting to it. Also make sure to update bios to enable CPU fan throttling and turn off the evaluation message. Have yet to overclock the board but it is possible from what I've seen in the bios.
Summary: Helt klart ett prisvärt och bra moderkort! Använder detta moderkort till min filserver, som på senare tid blivit sekundär HTPC. + Många SATA + Avkodar HDfilm otroligt bra + Ljudlöst - Ljudet (väldigt tunnt) Anledningen till frånvaron av full pott är enbart pga ljudet. Ljudet saknar fullt register. Låg basnivå och aningen grumliga frekvenser. Rekommenderar separat ljudkort. Testat med "AKG K 271 Studio" och jämfört med "M-Audio Delta 1010LT". Annars en solklar tia.
Summary: Perfekt för mina behov! Jag kör "bara" 1080p som upplösning så jag har inte stött på problemet consideratio hade. Kan inte fatta att ett så här litet och strömsnålt system kan ha en så kraftfull CPU!
Summary: Detta var min plan --- allt fungerade bra med den förutom moderkortet här... som inte levererade vad som utlovades inligt Zotac själva, dual link dvi med 2560x1600 upplösningsmöjlighet. Min dator: http://www.prisjakt.nu/minsida.php?a=consideratio&k=799989 Tråd som visar en annan person med samma problem, de insåg det IDAG att de inte funkar tydligen! http://www.zotacusa.com/forum/index.php?
