    AMD X570 ITX Motherboards

    Question: I have an old Athlon II CPU. Can I use it to update the bios of an AM4 motherboard or is it way too old?

    AMD X570 ITX Motherboards

    The Intel mounting looks more like a problem than a solution. Instead of using a supplied cooler, I now have to buy one to use this board. Not cool. 😕 Gigabyte was able to get AMD cooling + TWO m.2 mounts. Still leaning toward GB. Appears MSI and Biostar are only going to release B550 boards (no...

    AMD X570 ITX Motherboards

    Not sure if this has been posted. The ASUS Strix X570-I https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/ROG-Strix-X570-I-Gaming/ Still waiting for release date and price other than Outlet PC's $300 prediction. Also waiting for official MSI and Biostar offerings. Currently Gigabyte gets my vote for best...

    AMD X570 ITX Motherboards

    In a word, "yes". But here is one place I got my info: https://www.anandtech.com/show/14161/the-amd-x570-motherboard-overview I saw another article that said Biostar was releasing an ITX board, but I can't find it at the moment. This article also has a chart listing the differences of the...

    AMD X570 ITX Motherboards

    MFRP is $400! They are just selling it for $300! Hopefully the Biostar offering is as good and cheaper than ASROCK, ASUS, and Gigabyte boards. Might force prices down a little. Otherwise there is always the EPYC Mini-ITX server option. At least then there is a legit reason for the price. Mal

    Chimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    @Aibohphobia do you have full control over the "Cerberus" name/brand? I ask because it looks like ASUS likes the idea: http://www.very.co.uk/asus-cerberus-pc-gaming-bundle/1600172618.prd?BT-0617

    Incoming AM4 Mini-ITX boards

    Man it's been hard enough waiting this long. Not sure I want to wait until July. I will wait until June simply to have a choice. My last ITX board was an ASUS. Looks like I will be changing brands this time around. Not much longer now.

    Incoming AM4 Mini-ITX boards

    Well if they had a change of heart that leaves the door open for ASUS or MSI. And we will have 4 choices by the end of April. I have my fingers crossed for ASUS (Im kinda a fan). If they were just playing possum; shame on them for playing with my emotions. OK Im over it now.

    Incoming AM4 Mini-ITX boards

    Thought so. Didn't think ASROCK would pass up AM4 ITX. So that makes Biostar, Gigabyte, and ASROCK; the three we heard about during Comdex. That's disappointing ASUS. Would have loved to see an AM4 ITX board from you. If MSI releases one before ASUS I would be really surprised.

    Incoming AM4 Mini-ITX boards

    Well with reports of AMD CPUs reaching 1,2, and 4th on Amazon sales positions and other reports that at launch AMD will ship over 1million chips to pre-order customers; I feel OEMs have really missed the boat with this. It's not like ITX has sold like thin-ITX. There really isn't anything to...
