    I do like the minimalist design of the ProArt boards. Especially after the WRX80 they did which look fantastic.

    Wendell at L1Techs has the WRX80 and it just looks and works fantastically, definitely a money no object desirable.

    Pretty sure it's a new revision as they have introduced new stepping for a few cpu's recently too
    Old puter - still good enuff till I save some pennies!

    Wonder how long it will be before we get iTX offerings, one less fan in the machine, be nice if they dropped 2.5Gb LAN on there as well..

    ITX boxes with a 2.5gbe would be a boon for small format home NAS'!

    Yeah, some of the B550 boards have 2.5Gb, I was torn between that and an X570 board, which is what I finally ended up with for re-casing my home server box..

    Re: Asus lists quartet of passively cooled X570 motherboards

    all this passive and liquid and on air coolind and whatever... I would like to see some passive phase changer system that can keep any GPU/CPU below 50C all time and even during heavy/extreme load, I am as for one a little bit irritated with a bunch of these so called cooling solutions and often the price sky high... and little or next to no actual gain.

    It is difficult to find proper cooling out there and if you compare all the lets say finished all in one cooling systems out there... then the only difference whenever it get to it for real and when looking at all these reviews.. the price.. which it not in harmony with the actual performance.

    Still a bit slow really, 10GbE and I might raise an eyebrow.

    It is a hassle with ITX that you only tend to get 4 SATA ports, leaving your one PCIe slot for a choice between uprated network or a small sata card. Poor APU availability and current APU motherboard support on AM4 is a pain as well.

    Agreed, it's why I like some of the Asrock Rack products, they have an x570 mini-ITX board with dual 10G lan, an 8x SATA 3 capable oculink, m.2 and a 4.0x16!

    Plus, its x16 slot can even be bifurcated to x8x8, x8x4x4 and x4x4x4x4 at 4.0 speeds which is insanely good for a mini-ITX board meaning if you're willing to expand on the mini-ITX size, you could add more PCI-e cards in a small footprint area or even add a PCIe 4.0 HyperX m.2 breakout and have an extra 4 m.2 drives running at 4.0 speeds.

    It's a bit pricy at ~£450 but they seem to have added a whole host of supported CPUs to their list including 4xxxG and 5xxx CPUs since Patrick @ STHs review of the board.

    But yeah, the mini-ITX market is pretty slim for chonky SATA systems, but I'd love that Asrock Rack Board.

    Yeah 10GbE would be nice, but then there's the rest fo the network, so gets a bit expensive for home usage
    My iTX board has 2x NVMe slots which does boot and VM storage, then I have the 4 SATA for the spinner so its fine for what I use, although I have stuck a PCIEx to NVMe card into mine as the NVMe on the back of the board had the VM storage 970Evo+ getting a bit warm so moved it, I could move to a cooler running drive and free up the slot if I really wanted too but for my usage, there's no point at the mo..

    APU wise, I have the 3400g in there which does the job, I'll see what 5000 series availability is like at some point and stick something with a bit more grunt in there just because..

    I like their rack line, the dimms go in the right direction for decent airflow as well.

    I have a 2200G which seems to no longer be supported by pretty much anything.

    There seem to be plenty of ITX NAS cases out there with lots of HDD slots, just seems a bit tricky to drive them.
