As a friendly reminder to anyone questioning the justification of a such a unique product, please note that this motherboard is pretty much the holy grail of SFF products in that it houses an enthusiast Intel i7-7700k, z270 chipset, and up to an MXM 1060! (at time of writing, the MXM 1060 is the most powerful card that can be used)
That being said, we noticed a few discrepancies on the current specifications page with their datasheet. The change that stood out most was that the listed specifications show 2 x M.2 (Key M) vs the datasheet’s 3 x M.2 (Key M). This is important because the version we saw at CES most definitely had 3. We will have to wait for some clarification from ASRock on the matter.
Outside of that, the ASRock H110-STX MXM motherboard still supports 32GB of DDR4 ram at 2400MHz and offers a 120w MXM card slot running at PCIe 3.0 x16 specifications.
This tiny powerhouse could double as the ultimate HTPC and/or LAN box.
Although we still don’t have an official retail price, here are the specifications as listed on the website.
|Socket LGA1151 for Intel® Core i7/i5/i3/Pentium/Celeron (Kabylake)|
|Supports MXM Graphics Card (Type-B , Up to 120W)|
|Supports DDR4 2400MHz, 2 x SO-DIMM, up to 32GB system memory|

|3 x USB3.0 Type-A , 1 x Thunderbolt 3 with USB3.1 Type-C|
|1 x M.2 (Key E) , 2 x M.2 (Key M)|
|Gigabit LAN : 1 x Intel® LAN|
|DC 19V / 220W power input|
If a prebuilt version is not explicitly provided by ASRock at release, Akasa’s recently launched 1.97L Cypher XT STX case might be the perfect companion.
