ECS H67H2-M2(1.0) LGA 1155 Intel H67 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Intel H67
  • Core i7 / i5 / i3 / Pentium / Celeron (LGA1155)
  • DDR3 1333/1066

Pros:

No nonsense board, fast boot, easy setup. Include S/PDIF output and ALC892 sound, both of which play well with Linux.

Cons:

BIOS options rather simple and limited. Can't power-on via keyboard as far as I can see. No GUI in BIOS, must use keyboard. I could not get the UEFI boot to work with Linux on the first try and gave up on that. I don't think motherboard manufacturers have figured out UEFI yet, give them another couple of years.

Other Thoughts:

I had no difficulty installing Linux Mint Nadia Xfce and configuring VLC to play movies. Outputting sound to S/PDIF did not require modifying any config files. Instead, complete sound setup via GUI. Nice.

I'm running a Celeron G540 and that's about all I need for htpc.

Linux Mint Nadia Xfce boots in 18 seconds--using a relatively slow WD25EZRX (Green 5400 rpm WD drive) as a boot drive.

Who needs Windows? Not me. But if you want to drop an extra couple hundred dollars to achieve the same ends, have at it.
