Thanks! I appreciate yours' hard work.
That said, are all motherboards using this adapter in the review? No offense, just curious to see fair comparison.
No, I'm afraid not. It's very difficult to maintain the same system components for testing over the 6 year span that comparison covers, over the variety of power requirements for them. That said, one glaring omission I just noticed in this comparison is the Intel D945GSEJT in the Morex T1610 case, powered directly (to on-board DC/DC converters) by an 80% eff. 60W 12VDC Seasonic adapter -- going back 2.5 years. The D945GSEJT was the first of the "Thin-ITX" boards which made DIY "systems" like the tiny, super-lower profile Morex possible, and the Jetway NF9C-2600, though not from Intel, obviously follows in the same low-height form. Link to that review: http://www.silentpcreview.com/Intel_D94 ... orex_T1610
The D945GSEJT w/ max 80% eff. 12VDC adapter pulled 11~12W at idle and 18W at max load. This is substantially lower than any of the boards in the above comparison, and remember that the adapter for the 17W idle Jetway is 85% max eff. Admittedly, the old D945GSEJT could not play HD video w/o help, but a Broadcom Hardware Decoder BCM970012 PCIe Mini Card which enabled the board for HD video
only added 1W at idle and increased max power to just 20W (playing HD video or max CPU/GPU load.)
For those seeking a new energy "Thin-ITX" champ, the Intel DN2800MT I mentioned in an earlier post is a much more likely candidate.
