Still, it’s tough to tolerate even the slightest indiscretion when you’re dropping three bills. 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. Confusion continues when we move to audio, where the nForce ‘s HD audio capabilities are bypassed in favor of basic AC’ About us Privacy policy Mailing list Mobile.

Albatron KI51PV-754 User Manual: Specification

One of these is serving as physical layer chip for the network controller in the nForce ,i51pv, the other one is connected using PCI-express. No Interruptions Day Shortbread. What’s even more puzzling is that Ki51vp complements the nForce ‘s castrated Ethernet with a Gigabit chip from Marvell running at full speed. The performance on the other side is a lot better: We mentioned that there are a bunch of headers on the Albatron KI51PV motherboard; these are ik51pv of jumper pins for connecting additional brackets to.

Stressed, the system uses about 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. Dell returns to the stock market after six years.

The KI51PV is a great idea on paper, but Albatron’s execution is hampered by a handful of questionable design decisions and missing features. It’s a shame that there is not a standard out for digital audio, but on the board there is a connection for that, so that you can implement this with an extra bracket.


Notwithanding whether a Mini-ITX board even needs a secondary networking 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 Chuckula over the holidays. I’m not sure if the problem lay with the motherboard or processor, but four sets of Oi51pv memory were tested, all with the same result.

Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff! Normally, we don’t go into this level of detail, but given kl51pv variety of applications the KI51PV board could be put to task to, we’re going to list them all next. Which ever kind of power supply you select, just make sure of one thing above all others On the question of computer cases, any standard mid or full-tower desktop case can be used with a Ki551pv motherboard.

Customize The Tech Report The ki15pv had to do with running the memory at DDR, for whatever reason the ‘performance’ DDR we selected just wouldn’t play ball.

There are no brackets other than the TV-out included with the system board. Steam names the best-selling games of The biggest challenge set for the HTPC then is to blend and be able to fit in with the rest of your home entertainment devices.

Compact sizes also make the Mini-ITX motherboard a really versatile x86 platform. A pin ‘RS’ header is also found just next to the PCI bracket, but there is no further information on it in the documentation. But my dream of owning a powerful Mini-ITX computer is still alive thanks to motherboard maker Albatron.


Furthermore, specialized Mini-ITX cases are also typically quite expensive, as manufacturers are not shipping significant ko51pv of them. The board supports six USB 2.

Dell returns to the stock market after six years. There are lots out built with PC users in mind, and even more designed primarily for industrial applications. Customize The Tech Report For the power source there is a standard pins ATX connector on top of the board.

Albatron should be taking full advantage of the capabilities of the nForce chipset, including its support for high definition ki551pv audio and Gigabit Ethernet.

To get full functionality, Albatron not only uses the top side, but also placed chips on the down side of the board. Most of those features come courtesy of Nvidia’s GeForce north bridge and nForce south bridge combo.

While these Mini-ITX systems consume very little power and produce very little heat, they are also incredibly slow by today’s system standards.
