    Really nice ITX system.

    I'm just waiting for my A6-3650 to finish rebuilding my HTPC but in uATX form factor. Should be fun to tweak and then enjoy for both movies as well as some gaming

    I'm looking for such a system like yours. Really nice low consumption by Llano. If only we knew when the unlocked cpus are going to be available..

    I have this ASRock board at work and discovered one issue:
    It comes without a backplate and there are parts in the area where a backplate would usually sit. Considering that many good coolers require a backplate for installation, this is a problem one should keep in mind.

    I'm also wondering how qcmadness installed the cooler, since the AC model seems to rely on a backplate as well.

    How's the voltage control in BIOS? and have you tried undervolting the CPU? -- as I'm sure you're aware, Llanos have very liberal vCore applied to them... Ive been lurking around the buy button at newEgg for awhile for this board

    The options are good, with a range of 0.6V - 2.0V possible.
    Considering this is an ITX mainboard, I think ASRock did a great job as there are many options you would expect on a "big" board only.

    this CPU HS comes with a backplate itself

    Yes, I saw it on the photo.
    So you just put the backplate on top of the SMD components on the back.

    Possible if you are careful: obviously yes
    A good idea: definitely not, especially if you want to use a better (heavier) cooler

    because isk-300 is limited in space, i cannot put any cooler which is bigger than 1u

    @SBB
    Who overclocks Llano in a Mini-ITX system? O_o
    I'd be undervolting the CPU and reducing power consumption by a large margin.

    Very nice build qcmadness
    Intel all dey erry dey
    AMD all nite erry nite party party party
