Even so, when building a computer people tend to go with larger form factors, like ATX and micro-ATX for their systems because these are relatively affordable, are packed with features, have the best performance, and feature the newest technology. This should be no surprise at all for builders, especially factoring in the use of 2GB of RAM and that E processor. This unique adapter eliminates the trouble of plugging in one cable at a time, making connection quick and accurate. All specifications are subject to change without notice.

It etherent be nice to see rounded IDE cables instead of old-school flat onesa few more SATA wires, and a quick installation guide, but the necessities are there. The cutting-edge audio feature dramatically enhances the quality of voice signal. I would recommend it for people who are looking to build a solid, general use system, with the option of integrated graphics but intentions to upgrade in the future or even a basic HTPC.

Another downside is the use of a pin D-sub analog video output for the on-boards graphics- it is definitely time that they upgrade this to P5b-m. This meant I had to take a considerable etuernet of time to ensure that the cables were routed properly, though the use of a short-cabled SilverStone power supply unit helped with this. Micro-ATX has always taken a back seat to ATX concerning technological advances, but its size can make for a compact system if you put it in the right case and with newer motherboards the technological hit you take is not nearly as bad as you might think.

It would be easy enough to throw in a PCI Express video card and dramatically improve the performance in these areas, but my intention with the build was a Micro-ATX system that was as small and quiet as possible, so I stuck with the on-board option.

Looking at the board we can see a number of details worth mentioning.

This is based on the lowest score out of the five areas tested, in this case Gaming. What this boils down to is a capable computer and a motherboard that offers competitive performance, but with limited graphical capability.

With the highest speed up to MHz, DDR2 memory provides great performance for 3D graphics and other memory demanding applications. With all the news lately about Pico-ITX motherboards and cool new UMPCs it is easy to forget the things that are a little bit more practical though maybe a bit less exciting. After spending some time in it, there is little doubt that is was designed with the system builder in mind, not the overclocker. The system also lagged in Graphics Aero performance where it came in at a 3.


Compared to your average ATX motherboard you are only really missing out on a few expansion slots and a second PCI Express slot, which is only useful if you are a gamer.
