With performance competitive with the D201GLY, and power consumption noticably lower, Intel's D945GCLF and its Atom 230 processor are certainly welcomed additions to the mini-itx family. At an estimated MSRP of $80, price and performance are certainly a combination that will rival the best of what V

A great purchase, made this for a friend with for a small basic web browsing computer. Would of preferred that it had at least 2 slots of RAM, perhaps SoDimm would fare well too. All in all, its a great basic combination. Might invest in one with more then one RAM slot though.

Bought this to use in a microATX case as a low-profile, low-power pfSense router. Install of pfSense 1.2.3 (FreeBSD 7.1-RELEASE) was uneventful and the onboard LAN was detected (though I don't think it works in 1.2.2).
I bought this as a basic as can be desktop cpu/mobo combo and was impressed it actually hums along quite nicely and it was very cheap and the installation was very simple. The only beef I have with this thing is it only has 1 pci port and no gigabit ethernet and not enough heatsinks.
I love this board. It is suited for so many different applications. I'm using one to build a pfSense router for MLPPP DSL. Granted, for this, I needed to get an Intel Gigabit PCI NIC, as the onboard solution of 10/100 was not sufficient for my local network data transfer bandwidth needs.
I purchased this with a Apex MI-008 MINI-ITX Case and the Scythe Mini Kaze HTPC 40MM Silent Fan... I put WHS on it, 2 SATA HD's and an external TrekStor backup drive. All I can say is "Wicked!"
If you need to put together a very cheap computer for a family member or friend this is the ticket. I put one together for my mom to replace a 10 year old junker and I must say I was impressed with the performance of this unit, not to mention the low price. She only uses it for web surfing and some basic word games, but so far no complaints!
I have bought 3 of these so far, they are great boards. I have 2 of them as servers and one as a standard desktop PC. As mentioned the fan is loud. If you want to change this fan i would go for a scythe fan. make the pc nice and quiet
