ITXGamer Gets a New Home at LOSIAS

I was hoping we would have the transfer complete a week ago so the announcement would coincide with ITXGamer’s book of ra online second birthday (Sept. 19 for those who are counting) but a few [...]

Preview: Cool Master Elite 120 Advanced ITX Case

When the temptation strikes me to build a new ITX rig, the first thing I look for is a case to house it. There’s new mini-ITX hardware dropping regularly these days and it’s fast becoming a viable format for many PC gamers. Sadly, finding a quality case with the features most gamers want is still [...]

ZOTAC Previews a Z77-Based Mini-ITX Motherboard

Zotac was one of only two manufacturers who brought the overclockable Z68 chipset to the mini-ITX platform (ASRock was the other). Their attempt, the Z68-ITX, was met with decidedly mixed results.

Tips for Installing the Scythe Kozuti Low Profile Cooler

I’ve had my ThermalTake Element Q Llano ITX build on the back burner for a while owing to the need to find a low profile CPU cooler that would fit under the SFX power supply. Mini-ITX cases with the PSU directly over the CPU are quite common, but as most are designed to be used [...]

Expected to be available this week for about $150, the Zotac A75-ITX Wifi is the second mini-ITX FM1 motherboard that we’ve previewed with built in WiFi support (the other being the ASUS F1A75-I). Clad in trademark yellow and orange, the A75-ITX is priced at the higher end of the Llano mini-ITX range, but upon first [...]

First Look: Gigabyte’s GA-A75N-USB3 Pictured

With a model from ASRock already on the table and a preview from ASUS circulating, it was only a matter of time before Gigabyte dropped hints about their upcoming mini-ITX socket FM1 mini-ITX Llano motherboard.

Apples to Apples: TT Reviews the ASRock Z68M-ITX/HT

Good reviews on mini-ITX hardware are hard to come by. Not only is the format always the last on the list for the ‘big’ sites to review, but when they do get around to reviewing, the first thing they do is compare the mini-ITX offering to larger formats and find the mini-ITX model lacking in [...]
