Ooo er!

This looks like the business for a quiet HTPC. But then again, having it crammed in a small case with poor ventilation & airflow may just be too much for the heat-sink to handle.

but can it effectively dissipate all the heat? I dunno and it doesn't look like the VRM or Memory ICs are cooled at all, from that pic anywho.

At something like 85W full load and memory running under it's spec - while the same chips on other boards are running faster without cooling - there's no real need. It's great to see passibe, but I want a single slot cooler! Crossfire on a micro ATX only works at the moment if you don't have other cards, but I like my soundcard.

Agreed.

HTPC should be ok. Gaming would probably kill the card.
