<-- SHOP FOR A VIA EPIA BASED MINI-ITX MOTHERBOARD HERE
For around US$200, you will receive the following.
As with most motherboards, you will receive a driver and
software CD along with an installation/product manual. Driver installation
is pretty straight forward. Pop the CD into your optical drive and it
will bring up the disc menu where you can install the motherboard and
onboard feature drivers. Missing from the MII10000 is VIA's inhouse
hardware monitoring software suite (FlightDeck) which was included with
previous EPIA versions.
Also included is a ATA-133 PATA cable, a floppy drive
cable, a case badge and a rear I/O backplate for your Micro, Mini or
Last out of the box is your new MII10000 motherboard.
The above photo does a great job of showing you just how small this
motherboard is. With 17cm x 17cm dimensions, the length and width of
this motherboard is just a fraction longer than a standard stick of
DDR memory. And yes, I am an ogre with large hands. ;)
