We are big fans of ASRock. Why? Well they create some great quality boards with loads of features at very reasonable prices.
The ASRock FM2A88X-ITX+ is the first Mini-ITX board to use the Kaveri CPU which will make an appearance in Q4 this year. The board is based on the A88X "Bolton D4" chipset. Again, there has been no scrimping when it comes to quality components and features. The board is equipped with 4+2 phase supply, gold solid-state capacitors and 2 DIMM RAM slots that allow a whopping 32 GB of RAM up to speeds of 2600 MHz! See the spec list below for more of an idea as to what is included.
- 6 SATA 6 Gbps ports
- PCI-e 3.0 x16 slot
- Bluetooth 4.0
- WiFi 802.11n (dual band)
- 4 USB 2.0 and 4 USB 3.0 slots

While no official price has been announced the board is expected to retail for under $150.
