Ok, I got the DN2800MT board, I'm actually posting this from the CedarTrail Meego Linux 1.2 ISO booted on this board from a USB stick.
The heat sink on the cpu doesn't get hot at all (I'm not using any fans), only warm, so this board definitely can run completely passively cooled (= silent!), without any thermal issues.
I can confirm that power consumption at idle is only 7.5 Watts.
X works fine out of the box with this Meego ISO (I wasn't expecting anything else since this Meego ISO is made for CedarTrail Atoms), but unfortunately Meego comes without any useful (h.264/vc1/mpeg) video codecs so I wasn't able to test video playback yet. Youtube works fine at 720p with software decoding, 1080p with software decoding stutters, but I still have to try the flash plugin with CedarTrail hw decoding support that I linked to in one of my previous posts.
