    Does the IC near the SATA ports get hot? Is the Zalman ZM-NB47J Northbridge Cooler (SY-007-ZA) needed and does it fit?

    What's the onboard graphics like? Suitable for HTPC use 1:1 pixel mapping, mpeg 2/4 acceleration?

    Well, I've used the Geforce 6100 IGP, which is inferior to the 6150 on the A8N-VM, and it was fine (CPU usage ~60% on 1080i with a lowly Sempron)
