    SFFLAB to sell ASRock STX MXM board?

    Listing is found here. As much as I applaud the addition, three issues I'd like to know more on: 1) I don't know of any cases that are designed for those board dimensions other than ASRock's own. The MXM board is 5.8'' x 7.4'', not the typical STX 5.8'' x 5.4''. Silverstone's recently...

    Need help with ITX Z390 Boards

    I just bought an NCASE M1, and I am planning on putting a 9600k in it. I am stuck between the Gigabyte - Z390 I AORUS PRO WIFI Mini ITX LGA1151 Motherboard or Asus ROG STRIX Z390-I GAMING. I don't know if the $50 is worth the difference between the two of them. I also really dislike the...

    Any idea if this is legitimate? It seems too cheap to be true.

    Found this where there's a listing for ASRock B150M motherboards for 45.36 USD and they supposedly have over 1000 of them. If this is real, that is quite tempting.

    Concept A weird idea for a weird "PIO motherboard"

    Have you ever thought how easy would be building a SFF *IF* the PCIe slot protrudes from the underside of the motherboard? Just like the PIO mobos we've seen on SEA market, a while ago, that have it's PCIe slots above (considering tradicional orientation) the CPU slot! Think about the Dan-A4...

    Potential interest: GIGABYTE 8th gen Thin ITX with PCIe slot spotted in a (pricy) prebuilt

    Thin ITX has interested me although its pretty much impossible to get one with modern specs: namely an 8th gen Intel CPU (i would totally be down for AM4 but that's even less of a thing). There is one board that you could buy right now: The ASUS PRIME H310T. This is probably good enough, but it...

    Thoughts on using used / replacement AIO motherboards

    I want to start this off by saying that I realize this idea is highly impractical. Many AIOs use non-standard motherboard form factors, many have few to no standard sata connectors, awkwardly placed ports, and good luck finding them with standard power connectors. But every now and then you see...
