LostCircuits just came through with the review of the Soltek SL-85MIR (i845G-based microATX) motherboard.

The Intel i845G chipset featuring a real AGP interface instead of relying exclusively on integrated graphics has made a splash as the one size fits all wonder amongst contemporary chipsets. With official support only for PC2100 but the back orifice into the realm of DDR333, the i845G is an unlimited playground for the mainboard manufacturers to build ATX boards, and micro-ATX boards and ATX 2.03 boards (required anyway by Intel). While most other manufacturers are shooting for the most colorful presentation of their boards, Soltek goes with the pure albino look of white on white. Silver components such as capacitors blend in perfectly with the surrounding PCB and any rework borders on the impossible. But then, who needs reworks, we did not and we don't expect anyone else.
