    Asus C60M1-I,a passively cooled AMD C60 based mini-ITX motherboard for around £60!!

    This motherboard is starting to appear at UK retailers for around £60:

    http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD..._Board/C60M1I/

    It has six SATA3.0 ports and a PCI-E 2.0 4X slot too.

    Would have been awesome if they make it with a bundled external laptop style PSU. They did this with Atom mobos a while back and they worked great.

    Hmm, good point - I always forget audio over HDMI (never use it myself!).

    Usually works OK these days. Modern GPUs don't target DVI, they target HDMI so even on a DVI-D connector that is really what you are getting. Don't know if the crypto part is supported as there may not be a key for that port, but again I don't see why it wouldn't.

    I was under the impression that some DVI ports can carry audio e.g. HD4xxx ATI cards, using some unconventional use of pins but required a proprietary DVI-HDMI adapter, and in the case of the ATI cards, this practice was discontinued due to the inclusion of a physical HDMI port.

    Are you saying I'd be able to use a regular DVI-HDMI adapter on this board and get audio through?

    Similarly passive cooled cpu&mobo:

    Biostar NM70I with Intel Celeron 847 Dual-Core 1.1GHz Processor
    SATA3 and HDMI:
    http://www.ebuyer.com/407427-biostar...mi-6-nm70i-847 for £60

    I think the 847 is a bit better CPU than atoms/ amd c60

    Its not passive as it has a small noisy fan on the CPU heatsink and less SATA ports too. It might be better for media usage than a C60, with media which is not efficiently decoded by the AMD IGP.

    There's precious little the IGP in the C60 can't handle; it's even got GPU acceleration for Flash. Sure the Celeron will be faster CPUwise, but at this end of the market you're talking fine grades of "good enough". Personally I'd rather have the better IGP of the AMD, particularly as more and more things are starting to be GPU accelerated (a lot of web browsers are now doing hardware accelerated web page rendering, for instance).

    I expect it would have an HD2000 derivative??

    Re: Asus C60M1-I,a passively cooled AMD C60 based mini-ITX motherboard for around £6

    C60 is a Brazos APU, so it's got the same IGP as the E350 etc. i.e. an HD4000-derived (even thought it's marketed as a 6290) 80 shader IGP. It features the full UVD3 decoding block, so I'd be surprised if there were any popular formats it didn't handle...
