ZOTAC Z68ITX-A-E LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

4 out of 5 eggs Some problems, but otherwise a good board 03/27/2012

This review is from: ZOTAC Z68ITX-A-E LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Pros: This board is just feature rich. I picked it up because it had a Mini-PCIe port for both WiFi and mini-SATA, 2x HDMI and 1 Min-DP, along with USB 3.0 and SATA 6.0. While it does come with a low profile WiFi adapter, it has a bracket to hold a full height WiFi adapter in the Mini-PCIe slot. There have been a few short commings, but nothing that would make me change my mind on this purchase.

Cons: My Seagate 3 TB USB 3.0 GoFlex drive is not recognized on boot through the USB 3.0 ports. It works just fine on the USB 2.0 ports though. If I want it to work on the USB 3.0 ports I have to plug it in after booting up.

Another thing I did not like was the Atheros WiFi adapter. Mainly because it does not support the 5GHz range. Worked great on the 2.4GHz range though. Thankfuly I had a spare Intel Adapter lying around from an old laptop that supported it and that has now taken the spot of the Atheros adapter.

Pros: I purchased this CPU to put on a Zotac Z68-ITX board and the thing is a work horse. The lower voltage is excellent for the tighter confines of the chassis, and the lower wattage power supply. I picked this CPU for the lower wattage, Quad Core (despite the lack of Hyperthreading), and the Intel HD Graphics 3000. This machine was not meant to be a gaming power house, but if I wanted to, and one could fit, I could pop in a higher end graphics card and have it definitely be a mid range system. And for a decent price over all. So far though the integrated graphics have worked excellently for anything that does not require more GPU processing. And I could probably play a few older games with few issues.

Cons: This CPU has a big foot print for an ITX board, but that was a consequence of going with a standard desktop CPU for a compact system.
