Mini-ITX from Intel: Intel DH57JG LGA1156 Mainboard Review
So, I have looked to see if I could build something similar for less money and this MB seems to go some way to achieve that. If only there was a similar board that came with dual Gb Ethernet ports as I have read that the limiting factor is the Ethernet connection.
The Chenbro case seems perfect although it only has a 120W PSU - I wonder is this will be man enough to drive an i2 and 4 drives. There is a slightly bigger case with a 180W, but the price rises and it also seems to be scarce. I echo the comment posted by CSMR and would like to see these board test using the graphics on board (utilising Clarkdale processors?) as I think most would be utilised in this configuration, whether it be as specific appliances such as NAS, or simple HTPC front ends.
In any case, I wonder the benefit of running the on-board RAID in an OS such as Windows 2008 against a purpose build file storage OS, such as FreeNAS (assuming this board would be supported) or UnRAID? Help or tests showing comparisons of all these types of systems would be interesting
