Nice low power board
This review is from: Intel BOXD201GLYL Intel Celeron 215 SiS 662 Micro ATX Motherboard/CPU Combo
Pros: I am using this board to host my Skype/IM server. Since it uses less power than a 30 watt lightbulb, I an go green. I installed it into a case which used to house my AMD XP1800 mb, and what a difference! Because of reduced heat generation, I could remove 2 of my case fans.
Cons: Don't try installing Windows 2000 on this. I wasted 6 hours on this. The LAN may fail upon boot up due to a bug in XP SP2, but there is patch from Microsoft for this (see the Intel mobo support site). Note that the patch will not work if you have SP3 or greater installed!
Other Thoughts: Don't expect this mb to be a speed champ. Geekbench rates my machine at half the speed of a 3gb E2160 rig.
