I'm updating my mythtv/house server to a system with this board and a X2 555 Phenom processor from Frys $99 combo sale with a ($30 after rebate) GT210 for video. It has the Realtek ALC892 chipset for sound. After flashing the latest bios , installing Debian sid and rebuilding alsa from the 1.0.23 source everything looks to be working stable. If anyone else has a similar setup have you had any problems with heavy 7/24 usage? I've run cpuburn on both processors and bonnie++ on three drives for 24hrs with no issues so far.
