I purchased this as the backbone for my mother's work computer. She enjoys office equipment with a small footprint, thought I felt that the last Mini-ITX was a bit of a compromise (it came with an Intel Atom processor, not bad for a net top but underpowered for a workstation). When I saw this with the LGA 1156 socket and a PCI Express X16 I was intantly intrigued. I had planned to support dual large monitors on a Windows 7 setup, but I hadn't anticipated that this is supported off the board with HDMI and DVI inputs. Windows doesn't rate the onboard graphics very high but it's more than acceptable for a workstation and it's nice to know that if I cared to upgrade I could.Support for DDR3 1333 and a core i3 processor means that my Mother no longer has to wait to open up Firefox, Excel and Peachtree and can work with all three no sweat.

Bottom line: the board worked right out of the box and it doesn't feel like a compromise despite the small form factor. With notebook hard drives at 7200 RPM I've built a silent box that handles anything currently thrown at it and could probably even game if I wanted to. It's been a great buy and having a computer this small gives me more than a little pride.

As far as a gripe, be careful about buying aftermarket heatsinks and fans for the processor. They may list LGA 1156 compatibility but mini-ITX boards have a lot more resistors and crap closer to the socket than other form factors. Be sure that what you buy will fit on this board specifically, not just Socket LGA 1156 in general.

I replaced all the office Pentium/CRT units with Atoms/LCD displays and saw our power consumption cut by 50%. But a recent client required us to work with several Excel sheets with a total or 300,000 rows and the Atom started to bog down and VLOOKUPs started freezing on me.

I stumbled upon this great board in Amazon and promptly setup a test unit with a Core i3-520 and 4Gb RAM - the speed at which those Excel files loaded/worked blew me away.

I'm using the on-board DVI output coupled with a low-profile Radeon 4350 video card for a dual-monitor setup. For applications that requires raw processing power, productivity is definitely way better than the Atoms without sacrificing power efficiency.

The Core i3, on-chip HD graphics capability, HDMI port, and power-efficient design makes this a much better choice as a HTPC than the Atoms as it doesn't choke on 1080p or Blu-ray movies.

A great compromise between power consumption, processing power, and price!

This is a review for both the products listed below, since for my HTPC use, they were inherently tied together.

SilverStone SG06B Aluminum/SECC SFX 300 W with 80 PLUS certification Power Supply Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case

Intel Media Series Mini-ITX Motherboard Supporting Intel Rapid Storage Technology (RAID) BOXDH57JG


After much searching for the perfect HTPC Mobo and Case, I finally have come up with a combination that fills all of my needs. I have no interest of gaming on the device, only as a media entertainment PC.
First, I want a HPTC that can play back uncompressed BluRay files and have the ability to store their rather large files on the HTPC...not streamed over the network. Many other Mini ITX cases only provide a 2.5" HD slot, which don't get near the 2TB capacity that I need. Fortunately the case has a 3.5" bay, and a 2.5" bay. For me, the 2.5" was just a bonus. I went with a Mini ITX form factor because the cases that resembled home theater equipment were all too big to fit into the space I needed. I had a max of 15" deep, and most of those cases were 16" plus...not to mention the extra wires plugged into the back adding to the total depth.

Second, I needed the HTPC to run cool and quiet. The unit is going to be stored in a mostly enclosed audio tower, along with my other AV equipment. The audio tower does have a 120mm fan at the top and bottom, so there is air movement so my devices don't build up heat and cook. I have this paired up with the Core i5 660 (although a cheaper Core i5 or i3 would perform more than sufficiently). It runs extremely cool.

Sees all 8g ram...the Zotac's don't. Paired this with an i5 661 (661 is only i5 with 900GHz gpu speed). Astounding graphics. Needed pciex16 for something else so was hoping onboard graphics would do the trick...and yes, and then some. Been a while since I used an Intel MoBo, couldn't be more pleased.

UPDATE: Been over a year, and the person I built it for still has nothing but praise for it.
