Even your Mini ITX chassis? Regardless, my original revision 01 PCB for the ITX WiFi also has 3 USB headers, though it only has 2 internal SATA II ports and does not support dual link DVI (though can hit the same resolutions through HDMI if I'm correct).
Yes, the older version had the same GPU/northbridge. Also looking through the bios you get a few differences, the CPU and memory can now be lowered in voltage, my board only offers +.3V on the CPU (no undervolt options) and only down to 1.9V on the memory. The GPU is clocked much higher in the new version though, the old version is 450/1200, so it sounds like the northbridge may have gotten a die shrink. That would explain the higher clocks and smaller heatsink without much of a layout change.
