Good board 09/01/2010
This review is from: ASUS AT3GC-I Intel Atom 330 479 Intel 945GC Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo
I used this board as part of a low profile home office desktop setup for a client. It's very cleanly laid out, with a healthy number of options and support for the core requirements.
If you are building a low profile replacement desktop for your parents or other basic users, this is a good purchase.
The fan IS a problem. You can monitor the fan's speed in the bios but it doesn't seem to let you change it. I would highly recommend getting a mini fan controller to go along with this.. item # N82E16835118217 would be a good idea.
It did it's job nicely, though I may have opted for something a bit more powerful in hindsight, this guy will never see much more than online flash gaming.. but it doesn't seem to be quite as snappy as it should be.
The board did not post out of the box.. after resetting the bios with the jumpers (and possibly unnecessarily re-seating the CMOS battery) it booted up fine though.
