MSI has just announced a brand new graphics card to their gaming lineup. It is the R9 270X GAMING 2G ITX, which if you can guess by the name is a card made for ITX builds. That card is just 17 centimeters long, which means it will easily be able to fit in your small form factor build.
Cryorig entered the CPU cooler scene with their rather impressive R1 CPU cooler. Now the company is teasing a new CPU cooler that is designed for ITX and SFF desktop markets. The low-profile C1 ITX looks to be quite the interesting CPU cooler.
I think one of the main thing that Zotac is known for is their small form factor PC’s and extremely small motherboards. It always amazes me how much they can fit on a tiny ITX motherboard. Today we are checking out one of their newest ITX motherboards, the Z77-ITX WiFi. Besides being so small this board also features support for memory up to 2133MHz, USB 3.0 support, SATA 6GB/s support, dual Ethernet and of course WiFi.

Today you see more and more home media servers and HTPC’s being sold on the market, along with the parts to build your own. I use a home media server for my PS3 and my other computers so that I can transfer and watch movies all over my house. This also gives me the ability to stream music to all of the PC’s and other wireless Devices. With all of our home electronics becoming more and more connected it’s convenient to have a media server. It allows me to control the music and movies in any of the rooms with PC’s on them with either my Android phone or my iPad. The possibilities are endless. In this review we will be taking a look at the Zotac IONITX-P-E which is an Mini-ITX motherboard with the processor embedded in to the motherboard. Mini-ITX is a very small form factor about half the size of a mATX setup.
Taipei, Taiwan, January 19, 2010 - VIA Technologies, Inc, a leading innovator of power efficient x86 processor platforms, today announced the VIA EPIA-T700: the first product based on the recently announced Mobile-ITX form factor. Measuring a mere 6cm x 6cm, the VIA EPIA-T700 is a uniquely compact computer-on-module that is designed for a range of ultra-compact embedded devices in medical, military and in-vehicle applications. Designed to deliver a simple modular approach to device design that precipitates greater miniaturization and portability, the Mobile-ITX-based VIA EPIA-T700 makes it easier than ever before to design and manufacture compact devices. With customized carrier boards connected using ultra low profile 3mm connectors, the VIA EPIA-T700 is in a class of its own.
Zotac had a small but interesting showing, being one of the refugees from Sands, which wasn’t used during CES this year. They showed a new nettop, as well as some designs of netbooks, Nvidia graphics cards, and some small nano and mini ITX motherboards.
