Gigabyte now has another new mini-itx GA-b75TN.
This is a thin board. Really thin. Amazing what you can do when you leave out serial ports,parallel and PS2.
Recently the GA-B75N (not thin) became available in US.
Although not in manual or block diagram it does have mini lci for wireless. Also msata connector !!!
So now we have two new mini itx from Gigabyte.
I noticed $20 price drop in Z77. Maybe it is going away.
At New Egg the reviews show a very high rate of failures for Z77.
This is one of the few times reviews do not seem to be coming from bozos.
NewEgg seems to be slow on getting these new boards out.
Maybe because they are clearing out other stock,thus price drop.

Feel free to move this,if it is in wrong section.

This board has many connections for LVDS so it is good candidate for AIO to make a Hack iMac.
I guess the special Intel heat sink will work with this.

The board also runs off 19 volt power brick

New Gigabyte Mini itx board

There's also a new GA-H77-TN. The TN seems to point to Thin Mini-ITX. With their use of up to 8 GB of SO-DIMM (to get the low profile) memory and all the other features, they definitely look like they're targetted at the embedded market.

I understand these were mainly designed for "custom" All-in-One systems, but let's see how thin some Mini-ITX cases can get with these things. I'll bet you can stick a thin heat-sink in there and vent the hot air directly out the top of the case!

These look great. I've been thinking about building a small hackintosh in one of the classic all-in-one Macintoshes, like I've seen recently on this site, and these boards would make it incredibly simple. I'm thinking I could even just use mSATA for the boot drive and have almost nothing inside the case except the motherboard and the PSU. And a screen, I suppose.

Or now that it's so thin, maybe I'll build a Hackintosh out of a Macintosh LC!

I loved the Pizza Mac, Raygan.
When I was thinking of designs I forgot that one.
That was one of the easiest Macs to get into.
It was quiet and cool.
I think there was a special edition in black or SE grey.
