Small form factor PCs have often compromised on the performance aspect, but with the Intel H55 Express chipset and its relatively decent integrated graphics, this is set to change. Gigabyte's latest mini-ITX board hopes to change our mindsets about tiny boards and their capabilities.
Filling up our palm is the DFI LanParty MI P55-T36, a mini-ITX board that belies its dimensions by having Intel's mainstream P55 chipset onboard. It opens the way for mini-ITX systems powered by a quad-core processor. We check it out to see if it's as capable as its full-sized rivals.
The new ISK series from Antec is a new line of casings designed specifically for mini-ITX motherboards and the ISK300-65 is their maiden offering. We take a closer look at this pint-sized casing designed specially for mini-ITX and HTPC enthusiasts to see if it fits the bill.
SilverStone ventures into the very small form factor arena with its latest chassis design, the Sugo SG05. Meant for mini-ITX motherboards, this small chassis features a quiet 120mm fan, adequate ventilation and a respectable power supply. Is it good enough to build a decent system?
