ASRock unveiled the H110-STX MXM motherboard. Designed for the STX form-factor, this board features a type-B MXM slot, letting you install notebook discrete graphics cards, with TDP of up to 120W.

The board features Intel H110 Express chipset, and features essential connectivity.

Storage connectivity on the H110-STX MXM includes two SATA 6 Gb/s ports, and one 32 Gb/s M.2 slot. Display connectivity includes one HDMI port that's wired to the CPU's onboard graphics, a second HDMI port wired to the MXM slot, a full-size DisplayPort wired to the MXM, and a Thunderbolt port with mini-DisplayPort wiring to the MXM. USB connectivity includes four USB 3.0 ports. The board's single gigabit Ethernet interface is driven by an Intel i219V controller. The board features a total of two 20 Gb/s Thunderbolt interfaces, one on the rear panel, and one on the front panel. The onboard HD audio controller puts out stereo audio, and 7.1-channel digital (SPDIF) output. We also spy an ASUS Aura Sync compatible RGB LED header. A 220W power-brick comes included.

Well.. if only end users can have wide selection of mxm cards and able to purchase them easily this would be sff builder's wet dream. For now, only OEMs might be interested in this board.

True, would love to put a 1060/480 om that board for really tiny 1440p gaming rig. Also Rgb bug hasnt even spared this tiny board, it also has a rgb header.

Asrock is also using this board in one of their desktops.

Personally, I think it's a great idea. But cases for these types of boards are non existent, ditto for MXM cards and heatsinks.

Putting the cart a bit before the horse it seems.

Nice board... But mxm craphics cards costs arm and leg, so I'm not expecting it to be very popular.

Is this a different form factor to mini-stx?

Yeah, it's different. Asrock calls it micro-stx, but its bigger(5.8"x 7.4") than intel mini-STX 5"x 5". So good luck for finding case for it.

Yes, ASRock calls it Micro STX. I'm using the Deskmini 110 mini-STX PC right now and really like it. This form factor looks awesome, but it all comes down to MXM graphics card price and availability. I'm hoping there are some reasonable barebone kits available in the future, like the Deskmini 110.

I'm pretty sure this is one of those times where AsRock made this motherboard specifically for the DeskMini 110, but then people asked for just the motherboard so AsRock released it as a separate product.

This is nice. I love it! Problem is MXM cards cost more than the real deal, and they are damn hard to find. This would make me think, these are OEM boards.

This type of board is suppose to be in their new DeskMini line offering RX470 RX480 and GTX 1060 solutions. And it might be adopted by other companies with MXM cards already included I guess.

Imo this is awesome I really want something like this. I still don´t get why we stuck at tower cases when everything got so small. We go out with computers stronger than a Core 2 Quad on our pocket.
