I just ordered components for my first mini itx build ever with a FM2 gigabyte board. I'm looking forward to building something so small. I am a little disappointed in not finding any that fit the thin standard for ultra compacts, but still this system should be pretty compact.
trying to decide between GA-F2A88XN-WIFI and FM2A88X-ITX+
6 SATA (my miniITX Lian-Li could fit 6 hdds) plus
Realtek ALC 1150 plus
Atheros Gigabit Lan not to much experience
Atheros 802.11n Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.0 con, n standard only
DVI-D, D-Sub, HDMI why D-Sub....
HDMI-In could be useful...
DTS Connect plus
Asrock HomeCloud can wake up over internet on the I/O plate, I don't see were a place to plug in the WiFi antenna...
4 SATA (my miniITX Lian-Li could fit 6 hdds) con, if i ever decide to expand HTPC
Realtek ALC 892 con
Realtek Gigabit Lan its a realtek lan, not much to expact...
Intel 802.11ac Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.0 ac standard, and by Intel! not sure about model, since they claim 867 Mbps data rate most likely 7260
DVI-D, 2xHDMI 3 digital outputs
no e-SATA con
leaning towards the Asrock, I can replace the wifi card for Intel for extra $40 bucks.
