I would absolutely love it if someone could reassure me that this board isn't as flaky with HDMI as the DG45FC. It works, but it seems hit or miss when changing settings sometimes :\\ Also would love to know if there are any issues with and/or coming out of S3 (Suspend to RAM) Standby (HDMI related or otherwise). Another common issue the DG45FCs had were a noisy coil... hoping this baby is dead silent.
Once ya got your hands on them of course
Thanks, and good luck with your boards!

MI-100BK (Virtually identical interior to MI-008 AFAIK). A slight warning though, HDD won't fit if you're using RAM with heatspreaders taller than the PCB itself, or a PicoPSU, where the HDD will sit on it and be 1-2mm over the screw holes. Love it otherwise. Solid, amazingly quiet PSU if you choose to use it (tons of clearance if you don't), full sized optical drive, and room for a 120mm exhaust which I plan to run very slow, and as the only fan. A bargain for sure.
On the other hand, it does feel like there's a lot of wasted space, and that SD100 looks pretty darn sweet.
