Socket P MoDT boards are rare, precious, and very often either outdated or underpowered. Another BIG issue is the medium voltage of the P-Penryns: usually MoDT/industrial boards support only std. voltage cpus (T-Penryns).
I have notice that, i'm having some issues about it
Anyway, you have to check industrial-PC makers (as Commell, BMC, but also the industrial arm of ASUS - Pegatron -, DFI, or MSI - maybe the MSI mobo you quoted is a ÂµATX
I have to check these industrial-PC makers but the problem may be that the boards usually don't have DVI or HDMI outputs.I will check it.
If you plan on putting a graphics card in it then the chipset itself shouldn't matter as the graphics card will be able to handle the HD decoding. (assuming that graphics card supports HD decoding)
You are correct about it and i'm aware of that if the graphic card fails i have to ensure that there's a alternative in the moment.
Are you just going to use it for HTPC stuff or do you plan on gaming some on it too? If it's just for video and you do have a chipset that support HD decoding, then I would think the extra graphics card would be unnecessary. And do you have specific audio needs that the onboard audio can't handle? I'm not an audiophile myself and onboard sound is plenty for me. But I know others aren't happy with the quality or abilities of onboard sound. Just trying to get an idea of what you want out of this thing.
Regarding this question the HTPC it's for all things, playing games and HD movies with a BD drive and a ATI 4670 . i will use this sound card - Auzen X-Fi Prelude 7.1 or the Auzen X-Fi HomeTheater HD, already in study. I haven't say all the configuration because i don't think that was relevant but...
Thanks to for the replys
