I should mention that I originally used a USB live version of Linux to test out the cpu/mobo, and the board was getting really hot, I think it even restarted from overheating. Not sure what was causing it to overheat in linux but since then I have been using a 120mm high cfm fan, just sitting ontop of the cpu/video heatsink.

WIll post pictures up soon. I used some wood and 8 standoffs to create a little test bench type setup.

I received the slim line sata cable that allows me to use my notebook blu ray drive to test on the mobo/cpu. Aswel as testing the blu-ray playback I also tested playback with 1080p.mkv files.

Test hardware:

OS: WIndows XP Performance edition (stripped down to bare minimum)
Cpu: Intel Atom 330 + 120mm High CFM fan directly on top, sitting.
GFX: Nvidia 9400M, stock settings
Mobo: Asus AT3Iont-I Deluxe
Ram: 1x4gb DDR3 G.SKill Trident 1600mhz @ 1066mhz not sure on timings. (will try later to run it at 800)
BD Drive: HP CT10L
HDD: WD Recertified 740gb green with possible malfunctioning symptoms.

I used CoreAVC + WMPC for the 1080p streams, and this little system passed with flying colors.

-SIdeNote: Is there a way to show HD playback statistics, like a bench mark?

For the Blu-Ray playback, I used PowerDvd 10, and again this thing passed with flying colors. It seems like it takes a couple minutes to get into the Blu ray menu, wondering how this loading time can be reduced. Possible SSD will lower these times? I also hooked up the RF sensor and the remote was very responsive. SO far, very pleased with this purchase.


On a sidenote for the Brazos platform, A benchmark that has been done with a brazos test station shows the Atom330+Ion is on par with power consumption.

Thats all for now!

My mistake.. I guess it was the LianLi I was thinking of. For some reason I had Sugo stuck in my mind :S

Just to let you know - Northbridge / chipset heatsinks work well for replacements if you want. I did it just for fun, to use up crap laying around, but hey - worked really well.

idle of cpu1 and 2 are 27 and 25 - Gpu/ion was 30 or something??? 31 actually ( checked a text message to my brother. )

I have a 120mm fan on the case above this running at around medium on a knob fan controller. ( zalman fanmate. )
