    I've seen a bit of talk about ITX boards in this thread now and decided to stop lurking and start contributing for a change :tongue:

    I imported a biostar x370gtn racing
    Edit - I imported this, because I really wanted to give Ryzen 7 a go, but was too impatient waiting for local offerings.

    It recently (as in the last week) got the AGESA 1.0.0.6 patch, and I have some SK Hynix Memory running at 3200mhz (XMP profile) with a solid 3.7ghz p-state overclock on a 1700.

    The board is a bit feature light (it does have an M2 slot, which I'm not currently using), but it is certainly doing the yards in the overclocking department, which is what I was hoping for!

    I don't think this board will come to AUS, but overall, I'm really happy with it.

    Thanks for sharing SoulFire-Z :thumbup:

    Interesting looking board! Awesome work getting the RAM and CPU stable at those speeds on such a tiny board, with such tiny heatsinks and only a 4 pin CPU power connector :shock:
    Gigabyte recently announced their first ITX AM4 offering, the GA-AB350N-Gaming WIFI which is something that we should be able to find in Aus soon, perhaps even already. More brands should follow soon, be wicked to see more tiny ITX systems running 6 or 8 core CPU's.

    AB350N-WIFI has an ETA of 28-07-2017 according to Scorptec :)

    Im not sure intel gigabit will feature on amd mitx boards.

    These are lower price point boards. You might get intel wifi tho. Realtec gb aint that bad.

    AM4 is very tight for itx. Gigabyte has a crzy layout, msi has no wifi, and asrock has no USB 3.1.

    I am suprised Asrock didn't offer a version where they stuck a 5Gbps or 10Gbps on ITX.

    With ECC that would have made it a heck of a mini workstation or file server.

    OT but Just go straight to real server kit - Xeon-D is what you want. Something like this will absolutely cane anything Ryzen for a server. 8 cores @ 45W with ECC and dual intel and IPMI/KVM. No need to mess around with slipstreamed drivers, hacks or whatever with anything enterprise.

    for me the most important thing is wifi and a good OC

    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/318889 dig your heart out $357 AUD for a 1700 still not getting a 1600 yet though as i got 0 idea on what board i want

    i was hoping to get gigabyte but idk, for me i heard bad stuff about it and i really want a stable board to get those good OC's

    edit

    might go for asrock 3.1 usb isnt that big of a deal for me gonna go check it out :)

    http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/Fatal1ty AB350 Gaming-ITXac/index.asp - looks good got a x370 model too but at this form factor is the x370 chipset even worth it ?

    as far as i know all the boards do ecc that gigabyte one has ecc in the specs.
    as for lan...i agree with if you are using a server wouldn't it be better to use a pcie lan adapter...but then again with that particular itx board that would be a bit tough :)

    i do like it though and if they ever release a apu chip my lounge is getting an upgrade :)

    i myself would wait till august to buy and see how the dust settles... there should be a few ryzen systems for sale then(including mine) :)
