SFF.Network [SFF Network] ASRock announces the H110M-STX motherboard

While ASRock showed off a Mini-PC utilizing this motherboard at CES this year, it wasn't clear then if the motherboard would be available for purchase by itself. Well, today ASRock is announcing the standalone H110M-STX motherboard! While John may be dubious on the use case for Mini-STX, I think there's modding potential for ultra small gaming builds by way of M.2 to PCIe slot adapters (which hopefully will work with this board).

I was thinking the same thing. Could do a "Founder's Edition" mod like on the FE 1060 quite easily.

Gigabyte finally has their STX motherboard up here:

Looked through all the documentation and it wasn't immediately clear to me whether or not the M.2 slot is true PCIe x4 or simply a SATA comparable version of the M Key. Power header is missing, but the solder points are still there which makes me hopeful a modded connector could be soldered onto the board for 2 pin power.

Every mention of storage on M.2 is of "SATA Mode SSD Support" which I read as a pretty clear signal that it's *not* PCIe x4.
