My current build is on an mATX in a micro tower and I must say that I've really fallen in like with the smaller form factor. The only downside is that my board is Intel so no OC'ing features for me. :(
These boards look like a nice upgrade/alternative, but would hybrid sli be pointless with a GTX260 since it's already so powerful? In other words: would it even do anything at all for framerates?
The Zotac board's the 1 I'd want since it has 4 ram slots vs. the 2 on mine, has a fan on the northbridge, has the 1x pci-e slot above the 16x instead of below it so I can actually use it(on my board having the 1x below the 16x makes it unusable because my gfx card blocks it)and because it has at least some OC features.
The debug lights are handy too!
Nice right up. My girlfriend has a Matx board and a SFF case. At first I hated it because the heat was causing problems. Finally got that Pentium D I won from HH o so long ago out of there and popped in my e4300 and the heat issue is gone.
This board looks nice, but I'm holding out for the DFI lanparty jr. boards to upgrade her from the Biostar that she has now. The AMD version is out. Intel version to follow soon.
