Conclusion:

For a media platform the Atom and ION work very well together. When it comes to power, the whole system uses less than 50 watts of power even when overclocked and placed under load. When it came to temperatures, surprisingly the heat sink design did quite well with the little airflow in the chassis. Even when overclocked to 2.1GHz the temperatures stayed well below operating limits with the maximum operating temperature for the Atom 330 being 85.2°C. Speaking of overclocking, this was the one big limitation of the system. But really, that's far from what it was designed to do. You can set the system to use one of the presets for pushing the CPU but if you deviate and try to tune the AT3IONT-I Deluxe yourself, you are going to run into a wealth of problems. This is especially the case if you try to alter the memory settings.

The AT3IONT-I Deluxe is a joy of a board to work with. It offers you reasonable performance at a great price. The inclusion of so many connectivity sources including the 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and integrated Bluetooth chip means you can setup and run this as an HTPC anywhere you want without having to use wires. Add in the accessories included and you have one great base for your media PC. ASUS has really put a lot of time into the design of this combo and it shows. With a dual core Atom, Integrated ION graphics and DDR3 memory, you have all of the power you need without the overhead, power consumption and heat of a higher-end system.

 

Pros:

  • Compact all in one design
  • Integrated 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • Integrated Bluetooth
  • Low Power Consumption
  • Cool and Quiet design
  • Laptop style power brick

 

Cons:

  • Only three SATA power plugs
  • No DVI connection or adapter
