4 out of 5 eggsGood mobo

Pros: Good, solid motherboard. Comes with lots of stuff like wireless card.

Cons: The wireless card takes up two usb headers when it's only using one - minus 1 egg. That is one more USB port I could be using.

Other Thoughts: Good price and all around good motherboard other than the wireless card.

5 out of 5 eggsNice solid mini motherboard

Pros: This mobo is great, until now it is rock solid.
You might want to go to Zotac website and download latest driver and the latest bios, by sure to choose the correct bios !!! The bios update gave my one very useful option, being able to set memory voltage, now I can run my Corsair mem at 4-4-4-12 and 2.1volts.

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsVery Nice board

Pros: I like the setup of this board a lot. Spacing is very nice and all connectors are in the right spots. Booted up right away after install. Nice and fast with Windows Vista and E8200. No issue with G-skill 2GB sticks (4GB total).

Onboard video is plenty sufficient for the newer windows versions. Video gets a score of 3.0 on the experience index, not great, but ok. Didn't try any gaming for this MB.

What else?

Cons: Pretty odd BIOS setup and options, reminds me of old school no-name computers running Windows 95 and a pentium 1.

Also, what in world was Zotac thinking in putting together their Driver install CDs??? There are absolutely no compatible drivers or install programs for 64-bit windows. I needed to use my other computer to download the correct drivers from Zotac's website, which was a pain. What if I did not have another computer to access the internet to get correct drivers for chipsets, etc..? (even though unlikely). This is something that should be the very basic first steps in manufacturing a new motherboard, i.e. including a driver CD that has all necessary drivers.

So, if you buy, make sure you have all your drivers ready on a USB stick

Other Thoughts: Basic problem of not having the right drivers for Windows Vista 64 was a killer for time, but the board does everything else right and I am happy with it. If you are not sure of what drivers to get from their website or how to take care of this stuff then you are probably not ready for builds yet, not too hard though...would buy again

4 out of 5 eggsUpdate to my Previous Review

Pros: This is an update to my previous review to talk about my fix for the 6 channel sound. See my previous post for my list of pros.

Cons: This is an update to my previous review to talk about my fix for the 6 channel sound. See my previous post for my list of cons.

Other Thoughts: Since my last post, I found instructions online for how to make my own SPDIF connector. It really wasnt that hard, but its not something I think everyone will want to do. In defense of Zotac, this appears to be something that plagues many motherboad manufacturers. They advertise 6 channel sound and include a SPDIF connector on the board, but do not give you a connector in the box that allows you to use it. You can buy a premade one for about $30, or make your own. All you need is one half of a CD-ROM digital audio cable (4 pins) and a single RCA stereo audio cable. Cut the RCA cable and strip away the insulation. Most RCA cables have the + wire inside insulation which is wrapped by the - wire inside the outer insulation. The + wire must be spliced to pin 1 of the CD-DA cable, and the negative goes to pin 4. This will allow you to connect to a receiver with a digital coax in. I can now play Dolby 5.1 channel movies through this output. Its not elegant, but it works!

4 out of 5 eggsNice board!

Pros: Small size, takes standard 775 processor giving many options. XPPro SP3 install was EASY.

Cons: Very Quirky with Win7RC. I needed to switch to VGA to get the install to complete. Once it was finished I ran auto-update for the chipset/video/sound which installed quickly, rebooted, finished the install. Once that was complete I swapped to HDMI and it was fine.

Other Thoughts: Current build in old Shuttle K45 case using left over parts as noted:
- ZOTAC NF630I-F-E
- e2200 (from old system)
- 2 gigs (2x1gig) Crucial DDR2-667 (from old system)
- LG Slim Notebook DVD Rewriter Model GSA-T40N - OEM
- WD6400AAKS 640GB 7200 RPM HD
- Shuttle K45 PS
- XPPro SP3

This machine is a great light-weight desktop that also doubles as a file server on the network.

4 out of 5 eggsGood HTPC Mobo With One Exception

Pros: ITX Formfactor is perfect for Home Theater PCs. Nvidia 7100 Chipset has enough power for XBMC and Boxee, havent had any video tearing issues playing back 480 and 720p video like with other chipsets, optional wifi would be a very nice feature (but couldnt get it working under Ubuntu - although I didnt really need it)

Cons: This board advertises 6 Channel sound and claims to have SPDIF capability, unfortunately the external ports are 2 channel only. There is a port on the motherboard for a SPDIF connector, but they do not give you one in the box, and Ive never seen this type of connector, so not sure how to get it. There is only a PCI-Express x1 connector which I really wouldnt mind had I been able to get the digital sound working, I will most likely have to upgrade to a >$50 PCIEx1 sound card. Wireless card that they give you plugs into one of the available USB headers on the motherboard, it is not a notebook style card like I thought it would be. The manual is written in "Changlish", which normally isnt a problem for me, but its been no help trying to understand how to implement the 6 channel sound.

Other Thoughts: Overall, this is a very decent board for a very decent price. The wireless card is kinda clunky because you have to anchor it somewhere in your case, and the wires are very short, so your options for mounting it are limited. This board is performing flawlessly with an Intel Celeron E1400 dual core running XBMC and Boxee under Ubuntu. The reason I am giving it 4 eggs is simply because of the poor execution of the "6 channel" sound. There is no way to enable it using the hardware included in the box, and so far, I have had no luck finding something that I can use to add a SPDIF port to the connector on the motherboard. If you only need a 2 channel media server, or want an ITX board for a file server, or incredibly basic gaming, this is a great board!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat little board

Pros: Very complete little board. Not much you need to add to it. 'integrated' wifi is nice and now that the driver is GPL, should only get nicer.

Cons: The integrated wifi driver in linux is a little weird and must be downloaded from via-arena. It works most of the time, but sometimes requires a power off if it gets into a weird state. The driver was recently GPL'ed though, so it should get a lot better.

Other Thoughts: Great board, I'll be buying more.
