I guess you mean Audio thru HDMI right? The ATI drivers is all you need. I have a similar setup with a DFI board.
Has the I-E allso got undervolting options? it didnt before? bios update?
Hi, I've got the first version of the Zotac board which only has two SATA II ports instead of four / six.Any remarks on your previous setup before I go and buy this board? Did you just wanna upgrade to the Sandy Bridge?

On the new system I noticed an increase in graphics performance (HD3000), it has 8Gb instead of 4 installed and (according to AIDA64) the 32nm CPU runs considerable cooler than the 45nm one.
Old setup was allright, but I'm happier with the new system.
Not in the market to be making that big of an upgrade, twice.Your wasting your time trying to OC on these boards, especially with a quad core.
Not to mention RAM is too expensive on these.
You should grab Zotac's newer Z68 board (the one for overclocking), a 2500k, and 8 GB DDR3 RAM.
On these ITX 9300 boards you can probably only take say a 3 GHz quad up to 3.3GHz or so before the FSB can't handle the speed increase anymore.
On older chips like the Q6600, trying to overclock them further (say to around 3+GHz) can be dangerous due to the amount of current they will draw. Your 9300 mobo will probably catch on fire if you try a serious overclock.
On Zotac's new ITX you should be able to easily hit around 4.5 GHz OC with a 2500k without any real effort or tweaking I imagine.
Why remove it?Anyone still running this board? I have Q9550, 8GB ram, Geforce GT740, system runs great. I was wondering if I can remove the heatsink that sits on the board since I have an external GPU? Does this also cool some chipsets that still get used?
