After reviewing architectural changes in Intel's latest line-up of Atom CPUs, I jumped at the opportunity to replace my aging DNS / E-Mail servers with low-power Atom-based solutions. Using this motherboard, I now host all of my DNS and E-Mail services on two machines that use under 25W of power under peak load! As an added bonus, the new servers are completely silent and take up a fraction of the space the old servers did. I will outline the primary factors that lead to my purchase below.
Advanced Intel Atom Features
The CPU included with this board is the most advanced and energy efficient Atom to date. It includes Enhanced Speed Step (considerably lower idle TDP vs. previous Atom CPUs), as well as Hyper Threading (it can execute up to 4 simultaneous in-order threads under the right conditions) and supports x86-64 (> 4 GiB of RAM). The motherboard specs claim a limit of 4 GiB of memory (which is true in a 32-bit operating system without PAE), but I can confirm that it can actually use 8 GiB (2x4 GiB DDR3 SO-DIMMs) of memory (possibly more).
Integrated Power Supply
This motherboard effectively has a built-in PicoPSU! As long as you only intend to power one or two SATA drives, the built-in DC port can save you $20-40 USD on a dedicated PSU.Read more ›
However, believe it or not, there are not and probably won't be Windows 8 drivers:
Also, there are no easily installable Linux drivers (unless you are willing to hack a lot) .
Shame on Intel for ceasing support this quick.
Next time, I will stick with a company that makes their own graphic HW to avoid this situation.
I know everyone has been complaining about the dreaded unsupported GPU, but don't throw it away yet!
The GPU worked great on 64bit MINT Linux right from the downloaded DVD! I haven't tried ubuntu yet, Mint is based on ubuntu... and ubuntu is based on debian.
I don't know why, but I'm able to watch 1080 videos full screen.
32bit version of mint gave me scarey warnings about the unsupported GPU. Also the CPU was 100% and load was 3 at all times.
But under the 64bit version, the CPU is next to nothing and the system load was just .2. I didn't do a thing, I just stuck the DVD in.
update 9/26/2013 (orig review 9/7/2013)
After many linux distros, first use 64bit even though they say 64 bit is not supported. The GUI is useable in 64bit OSes only.
My monitor is 1920x1080. In full screen videos are choppy. I haven't had time to compile opensource drivers yet (google search for GMA 3650).
Also the N10 chipset is very hot to the touch and it measures 140F. You may want to consider a heat sink. Although all the other N10 chip sets out there are with out heat sinks.
Also consider a SSD mSATA if you are using slim cases.
I have found only one OS that will boot and run on this board.
Centos 6 is the only one so far.
Does not boot Windows XP SP2.
Does not boot Windows 7 Pro 64bit
Does not boot any FreeBSD.
I bought this along with a PCIe network adapter to create my own firewall appliance, but m0n0wall, pfsense or any those will not load.
Now I have to hack up the drivers that come with Centos to make them work.

Good little board. Just don't expect any heavy use programs to function well. One short coming is the video chip, won't work on 64 bit OS,Published 14 months ago by Michael L. Long
This board works fine once you accept it's limitations. When I purchased this, I paid no attention to it's lack of a standard ATX power connector. Read morePublished on July 10, 2014 by Alexander Arnold
Combined this board with 4GB of ram, a 32GB SSD OS drive, and a 4TB storage drive to make a silent file server.Published on December 29, 2012 by David S.
