The front of the box does not give us the product name but instead hails this as the MiniMax Home Entertainment Center. Along the bottom there are badges to show off what Asus feels are the main selling points of this system. One of the biggest is the included power supply; Asus refers to this as DC on board. The back Asus AT3IONT-I DELUXE the box finally give us the product name and also a picture of what you are getting.

There is also a little more information about the feature of the board [at Asus AT3IONT-I DELUXE a few of them]. Inside the box is a pretty good haul. Overall if you are looking to build and HTPC system this Asus AT3IONT-I DELUXE has almost everything you need to get going. It will also allow some great choices for system cases as there is no need to have a large power supply.

As such it has a severely limited amount of space to place components and to tune the traces. However as this is such a small device tuning the trace and making sure the BIOS is setup properly is everything. Even looking at the top down view you can see examples of quite a bit of trace tuning already. You can also see one thing that is glaringly absent. This is the pin power connector; as Asus has given you an external power supply Asus AT3IONT-I DELUXE is no need for the traditional pin ATX connector on the board. However, as this board design is probably used in more than one product the place for it is still there.

Of course the thing that draws the most attention is the rather large heatsink in the middle of the board.

Once we removed it we saw something a bit funny. Instead it is two Atom CPUs on the same packaging.


You can also see more examples of the type of tuning required to get this running properly [and stable]. Looking at the bottom of the board now we find the single PCIe slot. This is actually fully x16 so you have the option to drop in a very high end GPU if you want Asus AT3IONT-I DELUXE although, to be honest, I am not sure why you would try to Asus AT3IONT-I DELUXE that. This is an odd configuration as there are only three power connectors on the single power cable included.

Here we can see the antenna Asus AT3IONT-I DELUXE that leads to the external antenna Asus AT3IONT-I DELUXE. Right under that is the DC power port. You can also see a row of three fan headers with is interesting as the hard sell on the box would seem to indicate you do not need any fans. We see six USB 2. Like I said, it is loaded not for bear but for the home theater. These range from the mundane like Stack Cool 3 which covers the heatsink and PCB design to ensure efficient heat transfer all the way up to built-in Bluetooth. Home Theater Gate This is an included piece of software that has been designed with easy visual usage.

The software allows you to quickly identify icons even from a long distance.

However, it is also as limited as most digital media players. It has no ability to view live TV from a TV Tuner and also Asus AT3IONT-I DELUXE a few issues with media that is not stored locally on the system.

Still it is not a bad piece of software if you are building this to operate as a media player instead of a full HTPC. Wireless and Power Onboard This is actually a combination of multiple features. The first is pretty simple Asus has dropped a Wireless N adapter into a mini PCIe slot and have also thrown in a Bluetooth module for good measure. The last one is [to me anyway] one of the coolest features they have thrown in. The advantage of having this is that you are not limited to a traditional PC case. You can get something much smaller; something that resembles a piece of home audio equipment. Of course you can also experience full digital audio in the Asus AT3IONT-I DELUXE of Toslink and HDMI out [again only 6 channel]. This is a big improvement over the p from some of the other Atom based products we have tinkered with [including Pine Trail ].

We have witnessed this on more than a few displays and is something to be aware of with any nVidia product. Dropping in to the BIOS on the Advanced [jumper free config] screen you can see that despite being an Atom CPU you can still kick things up a bit right from a single page. In fact Asus offers a very simple overclocking feature for the Atom but having a few present overclock profiles available for you. In this shot you can see the 2GHz settings loaded. As usual Asus still has their Q-Fan controls although I am again at a little bit of a loss here; if this is meant to Asus AT3IONT-I DELUXE fanless and silent, why the need for the Q-fan controls?

Still they are nice if you are intent on overclocking the CPU and GPU on the board as that little extra bit of cooling Asus AT3IONT-I DELUXE mean the difference between success and failure. As we told you above there are preset clock speeds set up in the BIOS. We picked out the fastest one [2. Now as we were not using any type of active cooling on the heatsink our 2.

We were able to run all of our tests at 2GHz with no active cooling and no issues. We are fairly confident that with even a small fan on the heatsink you could get to the 2. Intel® Atom™ Processor.
