I used that motherboard because it has 2 Ethernet ports which can be teamed, that means I can have very fast connection to my NAS which is also teamed to my Ethernet switch.


Also it is one of the only thin itx motherboards that can support a decent CPU. The CPU is. I5 3475s

That work is inspiring!

Too bad that I need place for GPU and sound card otherwise I would go with something similar.
Having big heatsinks laying around does not help the urge ether.

Yes, I didn't need a fancy graphics card because its just for Driving a TV by HDMI and intel 4000 is good enough (no serious gaming), and audio also goes out by HDMI to my reciever.

Maybe you could make a larger box and use heat pipes part kind of like my old version.

I got the heatpipes fairly cheaply by getting one of those zalman hard drive coolers and ripping out the heat pipes.
