Thin Mini ITX PIO boards are usually used in AIO PCs and are a bit difficult to find. For my build I am going to use the H310C-D4-IG
I already owned a few JUBO boards before and the overall build quality is great. Here are some pictures:
I/O from left to right:
- 19VDC input (10mm 4PIN, top: +, bottom: GND)
- HDMI input
- HDMI output
- USB 3.0 Type A/C
- USB 3.0 Type A
- Mic In
- Line Out
the board does also have a 12V 6PIN output to power a GPU up to 150W (depending on the PSU you are using)
note that on my board the writing for GND and +12V was mixed up... however, the pinout matches with a normal 6PIN cable...
those two small switches near the yellow USB connectors are there to choose between SATA and NVME mode for the M.2 Slot
JUBO also sells a version of this board with internal 12VDC power input. on my board this connector is missing but it might also work.
speaking of power: here is the 19V 240W GaN adapter
the seller can customize the cable/connector upon request and I think the quality is fine for EUR 50,- (but let's wait and see how long it will last)
normal power cord for size comparison:
finding a powerful low profile single slot graphics card was already hard enough before the "GPU crisis" and I am very regretful that I sold my ASL GTX 1650
last year... you still can find it but prices have more than doubled, so I chose a no-name GTX1050Ti for this build:
I was a bit concerned if it was fake because there are also some sellers who offer modded GTX750 as GTX1050(Ti) cards but it seems this one is legit.
Only problem with this card is the fan which seems not to be temperature controlled and therefore is really noisy even on idle - so this needs some modding
Speaking of coolers and noise, I found this 19mm tall gem which is a perfect fit for Thin ITX
motherboards with LGA115X cooler mounting pattern:
I have tested many sub 22mm coolers and this is my favorite so far - it's pretty quiet and cooling performance is excellent for this size.
