Roundup: Eight Mini-ITX Mainboards for LGA1155 Processors
Too bad none of these have Dual LAN though. I see these ITX machines used as Gateways/Routers/Servers very often and there dual LAN is just a necessity.
Wondering why your collegue (Doors4ever) didn't have the same ridiculous low power consumption on idle state for the MB he tested? My own build based on I3 2105 Corsair Force F60 SSD & AsrockH67M-GE ( on this Asrock ,I lowered all voltages permited ICH VCC etc to the minimum stable), 2 x 2GB low voltage Dimm & Fortron 300W 80Plus Bronze PSU will record only 24.9 W AC in idle C6 state. If one assumes that for the 7% of rated nominal power ,the efficiency will be in lower 70 , one can guesstimate that the DC POWER consumption AFTER the PSU is somewhere around 18 - 19 W. In the mini ITX round-up you stated that computer power draw DC for Asus H67-I was around 12W. I specially went in a retail store and bought that mobo.
Resulted a total AC power draw from the mains of 24.5W on idle with the C6 state enabled, a meager 0,5 W less than a full m-atx H67 . Taking into account the efficency of the PSU(70%) it will result 17W . That is 60% more than your stated power. As I suspected something was wrong with your special built PSU with reading for each rail, voila !. Hope you will post my comment, it costed me 120 Euro to follow your build. Thanks
