ZOTAC Reveals Two AMD 800 Series Mini-ITX Mainboards

Need a new system? Not willing to buy a full-size tower? Don't sweat it, as ZOTAC has just what you need. The company has just introduced a new pair of AMD 800 Series Platforms, including the planet's first AMD mobile-on-desktop platform -- M880G-ITX WiFi and the socket AM3 compatible 880G-ITX WiFi. 

 Both of these mainboards will fit in tight Mini-ITX enclosures, with the M880G-ITX WiFi offering a 1.5GHz dual-core AMD Turion II Neo K625 processor, a Radeon HD 4200 series GPU, two DDR-800 DIMM slots, a PCIe expansion slot, HDMI, dual-link DVI and a VGA output. The 880G-ITX WiFi  is AMD Phenom II, Athlon II & Sempron ready, and ships with a Radeon HD 4250 GPU, two DDR-1333 DIMM slots, a PCIe expansion slot, HDMI, DVI/VGA outputs, two USB 3.0 ports and onboard 802.11n Wi-Fi. Pricing information isn't available yet, much to our dismay.

I'm really interested in doing a media box with a m-itx and this case:

Hm any idea if it could support 1080p vids, looks great for a media box setup but if you're gonna build something dedicated to media it might as well be able to pump out the best quality stuff

I agree on both lifeskills and O Sunday's post's. That little DD box is very nice, however I would not put it between a desk and a sub woofer as wood gathers and holds heat, and a sub woofer when running (when you were using the box almost certainly) also put out sufficient heat. SO you'd be sticking your media computer between a heat and a heat retention source. This would be a good way to blow out everything in it almost definitely through extended use.

To top that off you would want a decent video card that could easily pump out 1080P, and would also add to a sandwiched system whether in that current location or not. Plus the case is DD, should it not at least be accepting of a liquid cooling solution.

If it was you could get a glass reservoir, fill it with liquid actively running or not, and a light source making it look like a lava lamp or something. I really like the case though and will be checking into it further. I personally cannot believe as I said before that it is DD, but not liquid cool able. That seems almost like sacrilege.

i have been looking for something along those lines. I have using my main computer as my DVR then use my PS3 to play it back. But the PS3 has moved to the computer room since GT5 came out.........no more play back of recorded shows, she will have to just watch them off the computer. TV cards are great

maybe you could get one of the new 92mm asetek coolers in there.  I bet it would fit

I think I personally would go with the Corsair H70, unless I could use that dual cooling Asetek unit to cool my GPU as well as my CPU.
