    X470 and Mini-ITX? Good or bad?

    I think I can live without SATA now. In fact I think most users could, especially since there are two M.2.

    USB-C on a desktop.. not sure I've got one at the moment but don't use it.

    a second M.2 if you are willing to sacrifice graphics bandwidth
    Any testing been done on what the impact is? I seem to recall that no GPUs come close to maxing out the PCI-E bandwidth.

    Nice board by the look of it, good thing as it seems to be the only game in town for x470 mini-ITX as far as I can tell.

    Running SATA on the m.2 ports doesn't trouble the GPU bandwidth, right? Because that's the way I'd go if I needed two SSDs on this board, identical performance to nvme and a whole lot cheaper

    Well there is the ASRock Fatal1ty X470 Gaming-ITX/ac, but otherwise, no there isn't much in the X470 mini itx market.

    Nope, it just switches off one of the physical SATA ports. That said, you would be 'limited' to 550MB/s or so.

    Great motherboard, but slightly overkill for me. I wish ASRock would hurry up and release their X470 Gaming-ITX/ac in the UK. Really keen to replace my Intel Haswell NUC as an HTPC.

    Re: Asus ROG Strix X470-I Gaming

    Does the board support ECC memory? I guess not, because ASUS usually CBA to support it.

    On another note, I currently still believe mATX is the best size for a motherboard. All the necessary space for things not to get cramped, including but not limited to 4 DIMM sockets.
