VE-900

Postposted on Sun Dec 18, 2011 2:00 am

I know ViA doesn't get much love on the 'report, but I picked up a VE-900 board (promo $89 on VIA Store website) with a Nano X2 1.4 cpu for the living room. I assume most people in this market have gone with an E-350 board or some derivative by now which arguably may be a better buy, but if you want to try something different the VE-900 isn't that bad at all. For a small comparison I also have a Ion based Atom 330 in the kids room and the Nano X2 is noticeably faster.

Guess it would have helped to ask my question to the community. Right now I have this in an old matx case just to install and set it up, but want to pick out a slick itx case for the living room, preferably with a brick external psu (but not a must). I poked around the Egg but still looking. Any recommendations?

TIA

No worries, I found something on the Egg that worked nicely. 60w brick it came with did the trick.
