Cheap mobo that doesn't cause issues with Ubuntu.

Whenever I buy parts, which is infrequently, I look for the low energy
option. I have no need at all for a system with stellar performance, it
needs to Just Work.

The processor is low energy with a huge heat sink on it and runs at
about 35°C. I always look for the lower spindle speed on a hard drive.
I'm currently running Toshiba drives in my desktop, server and laptop,
no problems so far.

My reasoning is that lower power, lower speed implies lower internal
stress which should lead to better long term reliability. I've not had
any component failures in a long time now....
