Awhile back Nick the Intern & I decided to build a rock star vPro PC on our own. We scoped out the best hardware we could at the time and we built the following:


Intel BOXDQ35JOE Core 2 Quad/ Intel Q35/ FSB 1333/ vPro/ A&V&GbE/ MATX Motherboard

2.83GHz Core 2 Quad


Apevia X-Qpack2 Case

500W PSU

ASUS HD4870 Video Card


32GB SSD (for OS)

2x500GB RAID (storage)

Blu-ray/HDdvd Drive


After building it we started to test out the vPro functionality and that is when we realized that certain Intel MOBO (motherboard) the AMT settings are not seen through a CTRL+P prompt.  So tonight after a bit of VGA2USB conversion I created the following video to show where they are at.   Key message is if your building a vPro machine on your own & are planning on managing then be aware of where the location of the AMT settings.


Here's the video.




Have you created your own?  Let me know. .  post a pix and share.  I guess I should also post out a few pixs .. (will do shortly.).
