That's FM2, not FM2+.

Very true my bad for missing the +.

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+

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...
e-SATA plus
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...


GA-F2A88XN-WIFI
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.

i'm stuck between these two boards too.

the asrock looks great and i like the hdmi-in
the gigabyte has wireless ac which is a plus

the asrock cloud stuff is irrelevant to me, as is Realtek ALC 1150 as I will use hdmi for audio.
gigabyte board doesn't 'look' as nice, but does this really matter. :)


i too was puzzled about where the wifi antennae output from...

another thing i like about asrock is placement of the cpu socket, is farther away from PCIe slot, would allow use of bigger cooler and won't block the PCIe.

kaveri is still not available yet after the a88x itx widely available for two months, amd is really slow.
