I'm reading spcr forum for a long time now, but this is my first post
Until now I was using intel d945gsejt board for my home server (mostly file server). Previously it was running on Slackware, lately on Windows 2003 server.
I've decided to upgrade a little bit - to a sandy bridge platform.
I've red few opinion and one test of intel dh61dl board, here on spcr forums - and decided to go for it.
As a matter of fact I've just bought it.
BUT, I ran on some good offer for intel dh61be (something about 45EUR) and that board is way more equipped than mini itx dh61dl!
AND I do not need small mini itx size, I just want to keep about 15W idle power consumption
My other components:
CPU intel G530, RAM G.SKILL 2x 4GB 1333mhz CL7 ripjaws, HDD Samsung HD204UI (2tb eco series).
PSU - pico psu 120W. and I'm getting mean well RS-150-12 12V power brick.
CPU and RAM are coming to me in next few days.
Previous config (atom n270) was iddling about 16W on wall (with some shitty 35W 12V power brick).So.. the point:
Does anyone have some knowledge about intel DH61BE board? Is it as good for power efficient build as DH61DL?
