    Catering to needs of all shapes and sizes, Taiwanese company Gigabyte has developed a little, mini-ITX motherboard which offers support for Intel's Sandy Bridge processors.

    Called MSH61DK, the board in question is 17 by 17 cm, it makes use of the Intel H61 Express chipset and features two DDR3-1333 SO-DIMM slots (for up to 8 GB of RAM), two SATA 3.0 Gbps ports, two Mini PCIe slots, two USB 3.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, a Realtek ALC 887 audio chip, and a HDMI output. The MSH61DK complies with the Thin Mini-ITX standard so it can be used within Gigabyte's All-in-One barebone PCs.

    Basic green PCB. Haven't seen this for years... this has to be the very bottom model of them all.

    It's te retro look man, it's all good.

    Other than that, HDMI only = fail. SO-DIMM = fail.

    Don't really see the point in making it so slim, ultimately a CPU cooler is required unless....
    It would be ideal if you are making some exotic heatpipe-to-case passive system with a low power CPU. then you could make the thing RIDICULOUSLY thin.

    Fair enough. I suppose only because I'm less likely to have one lying around. Which means purchasing. For a cheapskate like me that's a big deal.
