I was wondering if the reported power usage of the system under load (225W and idle 125W) was correct as is very high.
I would have expected the power consumption for such Mini-ITX board (combined with the Intel E8500 - 65W TDP) to be 100-120W under load, and 60-80W idle.

Also, could you provide details of which boards were used for comparison, as the only details provided were 'Intel G45' and 'VIA Nano'.

First of all, I am a Zotac employee...
Regarding the display output, Zotac do offer DVI+VGA dual-display in another similar model "Zotac NForce630i-ITX". Please refer to this URL:

Thanks for your interest!

Small error at that link -- it says 4 SATA ports, but the image shows 2.

More generally ...
I hope Zotac updates these to nForce 730i / GeForce 9x00 chipsets PDQ. And in doing so make sure:
* DL-DVI is supported
* HDMI over DVI is supported
* GbE added (even better 2x GbE :-)
* and another two SATA would be nice.
