It's easy to know. The Mini-ITX fits in the 1st 4 stand off holes in a case. Just look at them that's how small the board is. So the center stand off's of bigger mother boards is the out side corner of a Mini-ITX mother board. The back plate still lines up too.

Thanks to Georg and Raymond for their replies. Looks like the board will fit.

Anybody know if the onboard gigabit LAN works with the Linux kernel in M2 1.01?

I have this Atom mother board it's a 1.6 MHz 1 core CPU. Just a little heat sink on it with no fan on the CPU. The video chip has a big heat sink on it with a little fan.

I don't think I ever used NASLite on it. I installed Windows XP home on it and that's how I am on here now. It works super good with that. Can't play like HD video with it good or games. But about any thing else it does good.

I would have to take it down and I guess install NASLite on a USB key to test it out. So not sure it it works good with the on board LAN on it.

I have a Mini-ITX that is a 1.2 celeron. I have NASLite-M2 running on it. The board is a D201GLY2 and it's on board Ethernet don't work good with NASLite-M2. It reads data fast but sending data to it is very slow. About as slow as old phone modems! I am not sure if it's the same chip set as the Atom board. They do have the Atom one out now with a Dual core and Gigabit Ethernet. Not sure if NASLite-M2 works with that Ethernet or not. I don't think it would. But they do have one PCI slot were you can stick a card.

I got sick of my NASLite-M2 being so slow and order a PWLA8391MT-REF Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop Gigabit Adapter. I looked on here and seems like it's the best Gigabit Ethernet card that works with NASLite.

I order a Intel PRO/1000 MT card but I was at a store and seen a Linksys Gigabit EG1032 for a good price and got it. Because the Intel one I order has not came in the mail yet and I can use it some place else.

But I found out NASlite-M2 don't see this Linksys Gigabit card. I know I had a Gigabit card in a old PC and it has on board Ethernet so I took the Gigabit card out of it and it's a Intel PRO/1000 MT and works very good with NASlite-M2. Sending data to it now is very fast with that card! The onboard Ethernet I turned off in the BIOS and it was so very slow sending data to the NASLite-M2. It did get data back fast.

So if any one wants a good gigabit Ethernet card the Intel PRO/1000 MT is a good one to get for NASlite.

When I put this card in I had to redo the unlock code to get a new one.

Wow the Intel PRO/1000 MT works real good with NASLite-M2! I wanted to test it and I have Windows 7 running on a Gigabit PC. I have a D-Link DGS-2208 Gigabit Swich. I did not have any big file to test it with. But I had a DVD with Transfer Digital Copy and after I put the Authorization it copied it from DVD to the hard drive. It's 1.75 GB in size. That took about 3 minutes from DVD to HD. Then I copied it to the NASLite-M2. That took about 1 minute! Wow faster then DVD to HD.

From this can see that's it's a lot better.

I got the card from http://www.tekby.com/product_info.php?p ... _id=831708 it seems like the best price then shipping cost added to it.

When I got it the plate looked bent. But other then that the card looks new. But I don't think it was.

I can say this Gigabit card does work good with NASLite-M2.

They have a new Gigabit card out not MT but GT. I don't know if that one works with the NASlite or not. But it seems easy to find on the net.

Can anybody who has an Intel D945GCLF2 motherboard say whether or not it fully supports ACPI including providing updates of the CPU TEMP in real time? I noticed that nobody has yet included this motherboard in the forum thread dealing with ACPI, but that might just be an oversight.
