Most Favorable Review

My favorite!

ECS 945GCD-M(1.0) Intel Atom 330 Intel 945GC Micro ATX Motherboard / CPU Combo

Pros: *PCIe x16 *Gigabit LAN *Supports Overclocking

Cons: *32-bit memory controller (does not fully support 4GB of RAM even with 64-bit OS)...we're going to need a different chipset! *With a PCIe X16 graphics card installed, the PCIe x1 slot is pretty unusable.

Overall Review: This is the 3rd Atom 330 board I've owned, and it is my favorite. It's the same size as the JetWay JATOM-GM1-330-LF. I've put an EVGA Geforce GT 220 into this board and am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. I also have 4GB Kingston 667 RAM and a 120GB 2.5" Western Digital Scorpio drive. I'm hoping to build a compact HTPC with this motherboard. I've overclocked the CPU in the BIOS to 1.92Ghz without a problem (haven't tried higher yet). My windows experience index is 3.2 with the processor being the bottleneck. Other Experience Index scores... * Processor 3.2 * Memory(RAM) 4.3 * Graphics 5.4 * Gaming Graphics 6.2 * Primary Hard Disk 4.5 Kudos to all Newegg customers that write reviews. They are always helpful! This is my first product review...thought I'd chip in for once.
