ZOTAC IONITX-L-E Intel Atom 330 (1.6GHz, dual-core) PBGA437 NVIDIA ION Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I put Zotac USA's web support and RMA process to the test, and they came through just fine.

Cons: Was not able to obtain non-ECC, non-registered VLP DDR3 DIMMs which my low-profile case required. (one or two manufacturers list such a thing, but just try actually buying it) Ended up buying an IONITX-F-E which appears nearly identical save that it uses DDR2.

Other Thoughts: I goofed on my 7/31/10 review: Motherboard was not bad, my RAM was, or rather, it was the wrong type of RAM, and I didn't catch that. Since I now have a spare motherboard and power supply, I guess I'm building myself an HTPC!

ZOTAC IONITX-F-E Intel Atom 330 (1.6GHz, dual-core) MCP7A-ION Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: A good fit for my HFX Micro M2 fanless enclosure: Idles at around 40 degrees. Boots just fine without a keyboard plugged in, very important for my application as I am running it without keyboard, mouse or monitor.

Cons: My case has very limited vertical clearance, and I needed to use VLP DIMMs and had to relocate my PicoPSU. Lower-profile DIMM sockets and a right-angle power supply connector might have helped.

Other Thoughts: This isn't a comprehensive review because my application (Vortexbox server) doesn't even have a GUI, I'm not using the wifi, onboard audio, etc. Briefly booted it with a Linux Mint 9 DVD and that worked fine, and the ethernet worked without a hitch. Probably want to use the proprietary nVidia drivers for snappiest Linux video performance.

ZOTAC IONITX-L-E Intel Atom 330 (1.6GHz, dual-core) PBGA437 NVIDIA ION Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Newegg processed my RMA and shipped out my replacement unit promptly. Looks like a good combination of features if I can get one that actually works.

Cons: Replacement unit also appears to be DOA (no POST, no video output, no beep, etc). Was very thorough in my troubleshooting (I'm not new to this sort of thing).

Other Thoughts: Am handling this second RMA through Zotac USA (knock on wood). Will try and post followup, hope to have better news to report.
