I've had two attempts at using Jetway boards. Both are J7F4 boards, one 
is fanless, the other is fanfull :-)

The fanless board is completely unreliable, in that the tiny heatsink 
causes the CPU to overheat in no time. This is without any overclocking. 
In fact, it still overheats if underclocked to 1 GHz (the board is rated 
at 1.2 GHz) and left at 100% CPU for a while (such as during a 
transcoding job).

The board with fan has a 1.5 GHz CPU and is less reliable, but it still 
sometimes crashes. Its heatsink is also very small compared to Via Epia 
boards that have the same CPU and a comparable chipset on them.

I've ditched the fanless board but am still using the other-one.

I don't know about the specific Jetway board you're asking about, but I 
suggest you have a close look at photos of it and other manufacturers' 
comparable boards.

Cheers, Jan
