On the other hand the board offers, thanks to the nVidia chipset, everything you need for a Media Center machine. This format was created by VIA Technologies in , and was designed to be passively cooled using low power consumption chipset architectures. The possibilities and performance of this chipset are good. On the question of computer cases, any standard mid or full-tower desktop case can be used with a Mini-ITX motherboard. At the bottom of the board we find the two network chips.

I’m not sure if the problem lay with the motherboard or processor, but four sets of DDR memory were tested, all with the same result. Socket based Athlon 64, Turion 64, Sempron processors. The possibilities and performance of this chipset are good.

Read on to see if that combination makes this board a hot hatch like the Audi S3 or something that more closely resembles a Yugo. Dell returns to the stock market after six years.

Albatron should be taking full advantage of the capabilities of the nForce chipset, including its support for high definition “Azalia” audio 74 Gigabit Ethernet.

Albatron’s KI51PV-754 motherboard

Stressed, the system uses about The ideal base for numerous Mini-ITX adventures. For a long time the ki51v between consumer electronics devices and the PC has been touted, however it has taken quite a longer time than expected to actually reach a mainstream market.

No Interruptions Day Shortbread. Processor horsepower has always been a problem, and while it would be unfair to expect the performance of a six-liter V8 from a two-door hatchback, you want more than a one-liter four banger under the hood. Privacy policy and Terms of Use.


Albatron KI51PV-754 – motherboard – mini ITX – Socket 754 – GeForce 6150

Confusion continues when we move to audio, where the nForce ‘s HD audio capabilities are bypassed in favor of basic AC’ VIA’s EPIA boards dominate oi51pv scene, and they all sport relatively slow processors that can’t be upgraded or replaced.

The basis of the board is nVidia’s GeForce chipset with integrated graphics.

Like you, we’re so familiar with desktop computer hardware that its kind of a shock to see an entire motherboard shrunk down to x mm, or slightly larger than the footprint of a CDROM. A pin ‘RS’ header is also found just next to the PCI bracket, but there is no further information on it in the documentation.

Small formfactor toaster sized cases generally have proprietory mounting posts for which ever motherboard they are designed for, so look around for Mini-ITX compatible chassis instead.

This AMD Athlon64 compatible motherboard could easily replace conventional single purpose devices like a car stereo system, multi camera home security system, or form the backbone of a dedicated network attached storage server, home automation computer, car Ki5p1v, point of sales terminal or any number of other uses.

Email the author s: Headers include two pairs of USB2.

Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff! To get full functionality, Albatron not only uses the top side, but also placed chips on the down side of the board. First you’ll need to choose an AMD K8 heatsink which doesn’t extend too far beyond the heatsink retention frame, or else you may find it interferes with the DDR memory slot.


User Comments Got something to say? At the bottom of the board we find the two network chips. Notwithanding whether a Mini-ITX board even needs a secondary mi51pv option, it doesn’t make sense to add a Gigabit chip to a board whose inherent GigE capabilities have already been crippled. It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Ki51vp over the holidays. But my dream of owning a powerful Mini-ITX computer is still alive thanks to motherboard maker Albatron.

The specs Less than square centimeters doesn’t leave much room for onboard components, but the KI51PV still manages to host a decent array of integrated peripherals.

Where most single board computers are stuck in the Pentium III days, Albatron brings the potential of bit computing into the fold.

This format was created by VIA Technologies inand was designed to be passively cooled using low power consumption chipset architectures. Directly next to kl51pv CPU-socket and the cooling bracket, which take in most of the space on the board, we find the GeForce north bridge and nVidia nForce south bridge, both hid under one cooler. The same goes for the TV-out which can be activated with an extra bracket.

It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate 7754 of the above details without first throwing
