Unluckily I haven't yet touched Atom family close yet, so I can't say
about it's performance. But higher desktop level (even bit old) ICH9R
chipset there is IMHO a good option. It is MUCH better then ICH7, often
used with previous Atoms. If I had nice small Mini-ITX case with 6 drive
bays, I would definitely look for some board like that to build home
