Mini ITX

EPIA CPUs lack both SSE2 and SSE3 and are therefore quite unusable. there are some mini-itx for normal P4s, but they can't be fitted into a small case due to the bad heat dissipation of such a small case. there are low power versions of the pentium 4 out there, but they don't support SSE3.

 

Next in size are micro-atx boards for the pentium m. the pentium Ms with 2MB cache can run SSE2 and SSE3 code, so that would be the obvious choice for a small system, even though it's not gonna be cheap.

The next up solution from EPIA is Intel's own FlexATX solution. SSE2 is the highest supported currently by the Shelton core. Details here: http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=928961
