Lian Li SFF offerings look stunning but once you get your power-hungry gaming rig up and running in one of those, it slaps you in the face with high thermals and noise but you still like it redface.gif

I'm not sure if this counts, but I got a quad-core Hummingboard (sans motherboard doh.gif - I got the CPU/GPU/RAM SoC though!) today from the lovely people at Solid Run. You know what a Raspberry Pi is? You know why Lance Armstrong got his Tour de France wins revoked? (An RPi on steroids is what I'm getting at. biggrin.gif) This was supposed to be the flagship, but I guess it was too expensive for the target price. It's got two more cores, 1GB more memory, and infinity times the wireless bandwidth of the flagship that actually launched.

BUT! If you want, you can buy the "true" flagship through this link by, under the first drop-down list labeled "carrier," selecting the "Hummingboard Carrier Pro." No need for a power adapter since it uses micro USB power and no need for an SD card because you should have at least one spare. The SoC is modular, called a "MicroSOM" (micro system-on-module), and it used in another of their products with a different motherboard.

Newegg has all the models that actually made it to market available, and it looks like I'm going to get the dual-core flagship with 1GB of DDR3 from them. Buying a standalone carrier board from Solid Run is $81 plus shipping from Israel, so for a net $5 more, I basically get that board and a free SoC from Newegg. Because I screwed up, I'm paying an extra $60 or so. Yeah. Don't do that. wink.gif


As for what I'm doing with this, I don't actually know. I'm thinking about making a box with a Hummingboard and a battery pack to mount to the back of a mechanical keyboard. Then, I want to get a laptop screen and mount it to some rail system. That gets bolted below the keyboard assembly and can slide out when it's needed. I dunno, like one of those two-in-one laptops with the reversible screens, if that makes sense? Sounds like it should be a liter or two. Maybe I can even use the mini PCIe slot for a desktop GPU! biggrin.gif

Been looking at the SoCs around Id love to make an emulator for every console in a retro case or inside an old crt tv for that genuine retro gaming feel

Damn this thing looks awesome, not sure what I'd do with it but it should make a great little linux machine. Tbh I'm more interested in stuff like this than whatever AMD/Intel/Nvidia biggest, best and latest consumer desktop is.

True, but even with that in mind, it's pretty large. But hey, everyone likes different things and I have to say I like the idea of hiding the I/O pane for GPU and mobo to make it look clean from every angle.

I'm possibly planning to mod my ISK600, I want to hear what you guys think about it.

If I say, I will put a 280mm radiator in the ISK600 in push, re-orient the power supply along with a watercooled cpu and gpu, would that turn anyone in here on? wink.gif

My package came today. wheee.gif Had to swap out the MicroSOM, or the circuit board with all the important parts covered up by the sexy red heatsink. Its form-factor is basically identical to an RPi Model B (not B+), but it won't fit in the Pi case I got. You'll need to make sure the case has enough vertical space for the mSATA slot or you'll need the other board without it.

Still, it's something like ten times as powerful as a Pi depending on how much better each core is and assuming 100% multithreading. Frequency is a lot higher (1200MHz vs 700MHz) but I'm not sure about any architectural improvements.

Finally decided to build a HTPC in a ISK-110 case. I got a AsRock Q1900-ITX running in this case since I had 4gb of spare laptop ram sitting around. So far I'm very pleased with what this motherboard can do for being fanless.

How's the single threaded performance? Was thinking about making an HTPC for it and need good on the fly transcoding.
