" but the price/performance ratio is unbeatable"

I personally think that in the past the VIA ITX motheboards have simply been overpriced - probably due to lack of compeition. This lack of competing products has allowed VIA to be complacent. No decent drivers and lno innervation with their line up (no PCI-X for example).

I wonder if that will change. I also think if Intel produced further revisin of this board with non-celeron chips and PCI-X slot then the VIA ITX range will be doomed.

I have a few questions about the D201GLY2:

1. Does it consume less power than the D201GLY?
I think an earlier reply said it uses more, contrary to expectations.

2. Where in the UK or Europe could I buy a cable to connect a picoPSU to the 4-pin ATX12V power socket?

3. Would PC2-5300 RAM be slower than PC2-4200 RAM, in view of the 533 MHz limit?
The price of the two is the same.

4. Has anybody tried installing Windows 98SE?
There have been some moans about the chipsets not being Intel, but if they were then Win98 would not be a possibility.

Hey guys, I'm about to order a power supply (either an SPI220LE or another Sparkle Flex ATX PSU) and a hard drive for my setup with this board. Can you recommend a fairly cool-running hard drive between 250gb and 500gb? I seem to recall reading that WD's SE16 models used less power than most, but it seems like they run pretty hot. Do Seagates run cooler because of the perpendicular recording?

I though innervation was what nerves did? :)

If anybody interested then I've got D201GLY2 installed inside Antec NSK3480:
- Windows Home Server installed
- PSU is PicoPSU 120W 12-25V
- AC-DC brick is Fortron 120W-
- HDD is WD 1TB GreenPower, planning to add one more for data duplication,
- no CD or DVD
- CPU and NB heatsinks are replaced by Noctua NC-U6, by the way there were a very thick layer of thermal grease under the original heatsinks
- single fan is Noctua NF-S12 800rpm, without a fan CPU and NB temperature are very high, I was afraid running it 24/7.

Maplins, £2.99.

I'm using this one on my D201GLY, 120W PicoPSU, 110W power brick, 3HDD's, no optical drives. So far it all works fine :-)

Where can I obtain the D201GLY2T version with the S-video out here in the States? Anyone have any idea?

Just stumbled on the review of this neat motherboard. I'd like to build myself a compact PBX with Linux + Asterisk, a 2.5" hard-drive, and a PCI card to handle a PSTN line.

Do you think it's possible to put all this together in case, using a PCI riser so I can lay the PCI card on the side, or is there just too little space for this? What about interferences from the hard-drive being picked up by the PCI card?

Thanks.

Are SATA data cables designed so that once plugged into a motherboard they can never be removed, or is there some knack to disconnecting them? :roll:

Be careful - some SATA cables come with a metal latch on the connector. You need to press it to release it.

Thanks for the replies.

The SATA cable in question is the one that comes with the Intel D201GLY2. I don't even need SATA, but I thought I'd test the connector while waiting for my RAM to arrive ... :roll:

I picked up a morex case that was sitting in the corner of a computer shop collecting dust for a few years. Although there is no model number on the case, it looks very close to a Morex 2788.
http://www.morex.com.tw/products/produc ... ?fd_id=102

I had replaced the northbridge heatsink when I got the board. I tried to install the cd-rom but the cpu heatsink was in the way. I attempted to bend some of the fins but I was not happy with the result. I ended up looking through my junk box and took a HSF off of a old AMD 400mhz. I used the spring clip that came with the Intel board and attached it. I found the fan too loud so I plugged it in to the case fan plug which regulates the speed.

It's in an iStar S-3 case and runs FreeNAS from a CF card: http://flickr.com/photos/21836199@N02/s ... 455384375/

Replaced the heatsinks, though the CPU heatsink was already sufficient. (long stort-- the M300 case did not work out)

Hi syburgh, is that a Zalman ZM-NB32K?
Thanks

It is indeed-- well done.

The system runs SlimServer on FreeNAS from a CF card. Most of it is geared toward SlimServer users, but there's a longer writeup about the system here: http://wiki.syburgh.com/display/project ... on+FreeNAS

Just noticed today Intel has released another variation of the original board. The changes only effect the thermal properties of the board though, the specs are the same otherwise.

Quote:
The Intel Desktop Board D201GLY2 is built in smaller uATX-Compatible form factor providing lower power consumption and passive thermal solution.

With similar feature set, D201GLY2A is built with active thermal solution (with an optimally positioned fan).

I'm still waiting for the availability of the "T" model with TV-out in the States. Will it ever be sold in the US?

Someone mentioned here that the PCI slot has a maximum power use of only 10w. Looked at all the PDF's from Intel and not one of them states this.

Would something like a FX 5500 GPU work?

Does anyone know how idle power consumption of the D201GLY2 compares to a AMD 690V board with Sempron LE-1100?

Pricing is about the same, but the AMD setup has a lot more features (not to mention a lot more headroom performance wise, but mostly I'm after 4SATA and GigE onboard) and I'm not space constrained, so Mini-ITX is no real bonus.

this is interesting. i read in the specs of the mobo it has a 10/100mbit lan-connection. is that fast enough for making backups with whs?

I am interested in how you got the PicoPSU 120w 12-25v PSU to fit in to the socket on the m/board due to the proximity of USB connector, or do you use an extension cable ?

The PicoPSU 120 12v seems to fit "just", but the 12-15v has thicker "coils" that don't allow me to install it.

for those in the uk looking for this board, I notice kustompcs are now stocking it, not ordered one myself yet.
