Any update, or word on this? I know this motherboard may be a pipe dream. But ITX + DTX + riser options sounds like a dream.
Also I'm totally for ditching excessive connectors like the 24 pin connector if we could get away with less.
Understandable. Honestly I just need a spine with two radiator brackets. Probably 8 bends (4 of which are tabs). I'll probably model it up and see about getting a quote. It would seriously help a ton to have those pieces made out of metal instead of acrylic. Just need to look at the guides...
Asus seems to ignore that bifurcation exists for ITX. I've asked their reps in person and been given the run around and asked on Twitter where they blatantly ignore it.
If you are interested I'm working on a case, trying to support too much IO in an ITX setup.
My goal is to eventually...
there are a bunch of bifurcation risers out there, most common are this from amerirack or any that C_Payne makes. You can ask questions over at this thread or on Hardforum. But basically just include a mounting plate for the riser you choose to support and you are good.
Exciting indeed, this is close to my dream layout. I'm prototyping a similar layout but supporting M.2 Risers and Bifurcation risers, excited to see where you take this. I'm watching this thread for sure.
