Innovation through Miniaturization

35 degrees, man that's hot. I think if you're dealing with those sorts of thermals in your room you should probably drop the DeskMini and run from your burning house.
pffft, its 30C in my house right now according to my desk clock D:I think if you're dealing with those sorts of thermals in your room you should probably drop the DeskMini and run from your burning house.
Been very interested in ASRock hardware and they scored another point in my heart. Maybe gonna impulse buy an ASRock ITX server board next ;-)
3rd party cooling solution incoming! Also I'm pretty sure Aetina will sell MXM GeForce cards to the public
If ASUS and Gigabyte see they are losing ITX motherboard share to AsRock, then at least they might join the SFF party in some relevant way.
Any word on the release of z370? And maybe a cpu bundle deal for the 1080 versions too ^.^ I really wanna pick up the 1080 version but the amount I save on the 1060 version has me leaning more towards the lower end of the scale :/President offers a special combo sale for you
DeskMini GTX1060 + i5-7400 = $799.99
By the way, we announced Z370 DeskMini GTX in this year.
My suspicion is that the CPU used in the review (7700K) may have been slightly power limited on the tests I ran. The board was actually rated to handle 65W chips only and the 7700K is a 95W part. I am planning to repeat these tests on the new Deskmini Z370 (which has a more robust power system) with both a Zotac 1080 and Gigabyte 1080 Mini to give a better and more relevant comparison.
