Those with more modest needs can get by with Intel's tiny Next Unit of Computing (NUC). Those who need more expansion slots can default to micro-ATX. But if you're the kind of person whose only required add-in board is a beefy GPU, as many are, chances...

So now that we have had a look at the ASRock Z97E-ITX/ac motherboard and have put it through its paces on the test bench, what is my final verdict on what looks to be a great option at a great price for those looking to build a small form factor system? ...

An energy friendly HTPC or a monster gaming gaming PC: with the latest generation of mini ITX motherboards anything is possible in a small form factor case. We tested a total of 15 ITX boards for Intel Haswell processors, in a price range of 50 to 200...

Intel's Z97 platform is a perfect basis for a mini-ITX system build as it features enough performance to please even the most demanding user while still being power efficient enough to be tamed by small form factor cases and modest cooling solutions. Due...

The overclocking ability of the ASRock Z97E-ITX/ac is good. A 4.5MHz clock speed with 1.3v would be great for a system that sees daily use. I know I would be perfectly happy with it. Overclocking was also quite easy, thanks to the well laid out BIOS and...

With every new chipset release, a large part of the community is always interested in the smaller form factor builds. Building a small yet powerful system seems to be an expanding niche, and for Intel's Z97 platform we took three of the cheaper mini-ITX...

International Review By Le comptoir du hardware on 80

Comme on l'a déjà dit lors de nos différents articles à ce sujet, le chipset Z97 n'avait pas grand-chose d'autre à amener que les ports SATA Express et M.2. C'est ici qu'ASRock fait carton plein en équipant les deux (mais un seul utilisable à la fois)...

La nuova ASRock Z97E-ITX/AC è indubbiamente una scheda madre capace di catturare l'attenzione già al primo sguardo, grazie alla sua colorazione di base nera (Sapphire Black) abbinata al blu dei dissipatori della zona PWM e chipset. Il layout appare molto...

Das ASRock Z97E-ITX/ac LGA1150 DDR3 Mainboard wäre für einen kleinen ITX Office PC fast schon zu schade, denn das Mini-ITX Mainboard bietet eine hochwertige ITX Plattform mit einer starken Grundausstattung auf kleinstem Raum und ermöglicht damit den Bau...

The Z97E from ASRock is a good motherboard but is not recommended if you are into overclocking your CPU. The small size limits the cards and components which can be installed but the M.2 slot at the back does redeem some functionality in this Mini-ITX...
