As those of you who frequent out forums will no doubt have noticed, ITXGamer has been acquired by LOSIAS Technologies. I was hoping we would have the transfer complete a week ago so the announcement would coincide with ITXGamer’s second birthday (Sept. 19 for those who are counting) but a few technical hurdles required some [...]
When the temptation strikes me to build a new ITX rig, the first thing I look for is a case to house it.

Clad in trademark yellow and orange, the A75-ITX is priced at the higher end of the Llano mini-ITX range, but upon first [...]
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. Announced months ago as the GA-A75N-USB3, a few images and some specifications have begun to appear for Gigabyte newest mini-ITX [...]
