A fancy looking of EFI (Extensible Firmware Interface) BIOS Utility:

More details.

Now that's the kind of news I've been waiting for. One gripe, though, the CPU socket is still too close to the PCIe slot.

It looks very good!
But on the other hand, I heard sandy bridge still has the 24p bug.

Can you point me to a link where it says SB has the 23.976fps issue?

There is no link since everything is still under NDA.
You could treat it as a rumor but it is coming from someone who actually has the CPU and done the test...

I really hope Intel could fix this issue before official launch.

I hope our fellow AVSForum member archibael is looking into this

There is no doubt that Intel knows about the issue.

I heard some positive rumors shortly after IDF that SB will address the problem, but unfortunately anyone who knows for certain can't talk about it, so we'll just have to wait.

What kind of memory is used for that board? Doesn't look like an SODIMM interface.

I'm guessing 204 pin DDR3 SO-DIMM. It is definitely a shorter length than normal desktop 240 pin DDR3 DIMMs. It looks like the retaining clips are folded down.

Maybe it's the photo angle, but the notch position doesn't look compatible with a 204-pin DDR3 module.

The ASUS mb supports 2 x 204pin DDR3 SO-DIMM (explicitly stated so in this review). It looks like ASUS decided to use SO-DIMM in mini-ITX mbs (like J&R). Have a look at ASUS M4A88T-I Deluxe AMD 880G/SB710 chipset mini-ITX mb.

Is it true that the H55 (for the i5 etc) used in the shuttle SFF etc PCIe slot is DISABLED if the HDMI from the onboard is used???

I am trying to find a SFF case (preferably with board installed) for my CETON CableCard coming soon...... HDMI onbaord from the i3/i5 would be fine.

I think that most H55/H57 motherboards disable the onboard HDMI when a graphics card is installed in the PCIe x16 slot, but the onboard HDMI should still work if something other than a graphics card is installed in it. The integrated graphics still work in my Intel DH55TC with a PCIe x1 card installed in the x16 slot. I have 3 PCIe x1 cards, 2 TV capture cards and one card with a couple of esata ports, installed in the PCIe x1 and x16 slots.

All ASRock, GIGABYTE, MSI H55 mb I tested support the simultaneous use of onboard video and a discrete graphics card in the PCI Express x16 slot.

The manual of Shuttle SH55J2 says, "Note, that the integrated graphics will be disabled, while using a discrete graphics card." So SH55J2 may be similar to ASUS and Intel. Check also AVADirect (you can select a PCIe x1 TV tuner card).

Yay! More M-ITX choices. Seriously though, why is the CPU socket so close to the PCIe slots on all of these boards?

Maybe because there isn't room to put it anywhere else? The PCIe slot is going to define the left edge of the M-ITX motherboard. Therefore things like sata ports are going to be somewhere else, like on the right side of the motherboard. The sata ports need to be close to the southbridge, which means the southbridge has to be near the right, and therefore the CPU is to the left, very close to the PCIe. I'd expect it to be this way until the southbridge is also integrated into the CPU, but I'm not sure when that is going to happen for mainstream desktop CPUs.

What are the rather last-minute-looking copper sockets on the upper right - connected by cables that seem likely to get in the way of SATAs and/or top right headers - WiFi antennae?

But it doesn't have to be. The DFI LANParty P55 didn't have its CPU socket close to the PCIe. Neither did countless LGA-775 boards from Zotac. Why can't they do the same for the H55/H57/H67 chipset motherboards? Something to do with FDI perhaps?

Does anyone have success using ReClock with Core i3?
post #3502 of 3674
Just received my i5 611 and Gygabyte H57usb3 MB.
I am realy disapointed in video quality when using Windows Media Center 7 (HD WTV files or live tv).

It seems that there are no deinterlacing nor gamma correction features in Intel driver tool... what am I missing ?

Trying to set up a DH57JG but my receiver is constantly losing the audio signal from the HDMI connection when there's no sound playing, is there a way to fix this? I keep finding reference to a "silent stream bug" but always in reference to ATI cards.

Should work fine.. I have two intel jg systems and they bitstream without issue. What software you using for playback?

Nothing yet, right now I'm just talking Windows in general. Whenever a system sound plays, my receiver clicks when it picks up the signal, the last part of the sound plays, then the receiver clicks again when it loses signal.

Looks like Feb 20th would be the day... I was thinking about holding off buying my HTPC until then, but that's still 3 months away and I am pretty much good to go. I guess I'll just go with the i3 530 + 5450 solution. All of the Jan 9 chips will certainly idle higher than an i3 530 today, although the i5-2500T could be interesting.

Thanks
Chris

Why not just use the onboard video if it is just for a HTPC, just wondering.

The symptoms you are describing sound like the silent stream bug. Have you tried graphics drivers version 2226? I don't have the silent stream bug with my DH55TC/Core i5.

Mostly because of the 24hz and 60hz bugs... although I guess ATI has it's own problems. We shall see soon.
