yeh ive contacted the guy, im gonna send it back
he seems ok anyways, computer shop
My 2 boards were waiting for me when I got home. Just booted both to BIOS with cheap 256MB sticks, so far so good. I did kill one briefly...don't try the 3x multiplier. It was amusing to see the 12v rail reading 12.5-12.6v from my 500W iGreen lol.
so can u overclock thse thingss/
ohh ffs i would have grabbed one of these for sure, and he lives in the same dam town as me lol.
BTW Did you try CMOS reset WooKiE_MaN?
For overclocking there are options for 13+ multi and half multipliers. At stock with ~25C ambient CPU temp was showing 46-49C - doubt we will get much more with stock HSF
The little fan is nice & quiet too. Audible if you're close enough but I believe it will be silent in any case/enclosure. The Bios also shows sufficient USB boot options
So these CPUs are still unlocked? That would make them the only reasonably cheap unlocked CPUs available, wouldn't it?
How's the heatsink connected to the CPU? If it's got push-pins, something like the HR-05 should be easily capable of silently cooling it - maybe with quite a bit of overclocking too.
Not sure if they actually are unlocked, the option is there in BIOS though...will test tomorrow when I have a usb drive to boot from. It does use pushpin for cpu heatsink too =)
This is the company that is shown in BIOS full screen splash and printed on the mobo CD.

Sorry, not the best person to talk to about this. I only using them as unix servers, hardly any display at all. Just find some reviews on epia, there are plenty around.
Nice! I wonder how much weight you can hang off a pair of push-pins.
Thanks for that. It's got lots of useful info. The manual for the board seems to be amazingly well written (adequate info about everything and no super-dodgy English).
I fail to see SATA support listed anywhere
mine came this morning (sydney so normal 2 days as expected). wont have time to check it out yet though.
mine have also come this morning...
Yeh that model doesnt have sata.. Gotta wait for the D201GLY2 (supposed to be released end of the month)
My board arrived today, have just connected everything up and booted with the latest Ubuntu live CD, works great.
The noisiest component for me is the crappy old cd-rom drive I used, the board itself is very quiet as mentioned above. What a bargain.........
Mine arrived today too. It's not the quietest board around, but when inside a case it should be fine (and if it's not, there are plenty of chipset coolers which will fit).
Found an old hard disk and installed kubuntu on it. Runs much faster than off the livecd .
For youtube video playback the integrated video is quite horrible, DivX and stuff likely much worse, but any pci card should be able to overcome that.
Still waiting for mine
I hope it does not suffer the same fate as an HDD I recently ordered, the AU post package delivery driver has sticky hands
Mine was waiting for me when I got home just now. Time to see what it can do and then decide on it's place and purpose.
Then I'll have to buy a heatgun for a plexi case for it.
Oh and a heads up on this item on ebay, it's a PCI riser. I know a few people wish there were two PCI slots, it's something obvious but someone might of overlooked this option.
what would be the best pci video card i could get for this mobo?
