I read the missingremote website review of this MB and decided to take a chance.
Due to budget constraints I decided to use the Celeron G530 ($39 - $49 range), which has most of the features of its bigger i3 cousin. I don't need 3D graphics and basic HD decoding is enough. I had 4GB of SO-DIMM Laptop RAM I pulled during my Macbook Pro upgrade that I could recycle.
I added a 2.5" laptop HDD to be used as main drive for low power usage (as opposed to 3.5").
I installed all this and used a Dell Laptop Power supply. I added an optical drive via eSATA connector for OS install and ocassional movie playback. Here are my preliminary results:
I had to install the NIC drivers from the CD as W7 didn't recognize the LAN port. As I did this I installed all drivers haven't tested HDMI audio yet, but it shows). The system idles at 15-16 Watts (measured with Kill-A-Watt at the wall). I can play Blu-Ray fine, with PowerDVD 11. System spikes up to low 20s watts during BD playback which is perfectly fine. I added a 3.5" 2TB Caviar Green and it adds 4 to 5 watts when spinning but not in use.
Tested 10.04LTS , didn't see the NIC. Loaded 11.10 , saw the NIC. For some reason it idles at no less than 21Watt, 5 more than W7. Then I saw that Ubuntu 11.10 doesn't give you an option to use the old desktop environment (you need to manually install it) and I don't like Unity environment at all, so I decided to switch back to OpenSUSE, which is also better for my Desktop/Server mixed use as I can customize the install more easily.Read more ›
Intel has a few boards out there now that use a built in DC jack on the motherboard for use in cases without a standard ATX PSU. This is one of them. I had also read that it offered an internal connection as well, so I ordered this board for an In Win case that had a 200W built in PSU. At the time, it was only $99 with free shipping and still seemed like a fair value.
Upon receiving the DH61AG, I came to realize that the internal connection was not a standard 24pin ATX. It has some crazy 2 pin molex (looks like half of a 4pin CPU connector) that apparently nobody in the online community has any idea what to plug into it. Therefor, if you have a case with a power supply, this MOBO will be a waste of money for you, as you'll have to purchase a separate power brick to go with it. Apparently it DOES fit a Dell laptop PSU, but I would recommend the mini-box 160W 19V adapter, as the Dell PSU only goes up to 90W if I remember correctly.
So, I ended up switching this board out into a M350 Universal Mini-ITX PC enclosure PicoPSU compatible;, which seems to be one of the only cases I can find that doesn't have a spot for an internal PSU, so it's almost made for a MOBO like this. This case in itself has plenty of flaws, but I won't get into that. I do recommend it for this motherboard, however.
Once I got everything situated with the power supply and case, the board worked just fine. It boots up in an adequate amount of time into Linux Mint 13 on an SSD. Probably could be faster, but no complaints.Read more ›

This board paired with a low power i3 or i5 CPU makes for a solid CarPC build. Windows 7 installs without issue using only the included driver CD. Read morePublished on December 6, 2011 by Darin
