DN2800MT motherboard replacement advise?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Today my DN2800MT motherboard of my caps music pc has stopped working.

What would currently be a good 'drop in' replacement, possibly a step up, nowadays?

(Using a PPA usb V2 card and a separate external powersupply)

 

Thank you,

Jock

That one needs 19V PSU. Otherwise is looks like a good drop in replacement with almost 3x more CPU processing power.

This MoBo looks to accept 12V:

Thank you Elberoth,

The Gigabite looks interesting.

I noticed that the clock speed is relatively low on the N3160 (1.6Ghz) compared to the 1.86Ghz of the DN2800. Will this be an issue/have an effect?

But you have 4 cores to share the load vs 2 on the DN2800. On passmark CPU test the N3160 is almost 3x faster than N2800.

Ok, than this board looks like the perfect replacement.

Thanks for your help, i would have missed the 19v on the ASRock boards for sure

 

Jock

My NAS uses one of these ASRock boards but it's the standard ATX model.  You can use a 12 volt Pico supply, which works great.  Otherwise a fancy hdplex DC to DC power supply will work as well, but you need more voltage like 19 volts.

Thanks

The Keces will work.  Just get a 12 volt pick supply.
