Intel BOXDH77DF LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Small and full featured.

Cons: Random Shutdowns with nothing running.

Other Thoughts: This is the core of my Win 7 Ultimate SP1 HTPC and I would experience random shutdowns with only AIDA64 running. Once I ran Window 7 update, my reboot problems went away which tells me that Intel issued a fix in one of the updates. 3 stars because whatever the issue was that caused the reboots, it is fundamental enough that Intel should have caught that prior to releasing to market as it causes the customer to spend additional funds troubleshooting Intel's poor testing. I will not consider another Intel brand board after this experience since my time is very limited.

GIGABYTE GA-MA78GM-S2H AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Onboard HDMI (for April 2008)
Lot's of ports

Cons: Overheated easily requiring a good dusting a few times prior to restarting.

Other Thoughts: This was purchased for use as a HTPC and torrent box in the Silverstone LC19 case. Last night the onboard video locked up during a 1080p x264 movie and never came back after reboot. It was starting to show snow and other distortion when any video was placed on pause including iMDB previews. Over the last few months the majority of movies played have been 1080p x264 and this probably took the NB over the edge.

I can still access the system using remote desktop for torrent work, but even using the system as networked storage to play video across the gigabit network causes stuttering playback when I've been able to seamlessly play 1080p x264 video from a USB 2.0 external drive from the other side of the house.

To be fair, the LC19 case and the confined shelf below the 50" plasma didn't allow for the best air circulation. Also, I have a 65W CPU and should be using a lower-power one since this will just be performing video playback and torrent work.
