Thanks OP & repped, just got 1. This is the same board that Microcenter initially bundled with the I3-2100 combo they had (back in June I think). It's probably one of the cheapest boards you'll find with HDMI out - the I3-2100 or G620 Pentium does a decent enough job on 1080P content to avoid having to put a video card in.
With a Antec Earthwatts 380D I was able to get 30 watts idle and 33 watts when viewing using 1 5400 2TB drive.
If you're looking for a low power HTPC build this is a great board if you want to avoid getting a passive card (which would suck 10 more watts).
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.” - Senator Barack Obama
