MSI Launches the Z170I Gaming Pro AC Mini-ITX Motherboard

MSI has released a new mini-ITX motherboard today, which seems like a perfect day since the compact AMD Radeon R9 Nano was also launched today! The board is the Z170I Gaming Pro AC and is of course based on the Z170 chipset supporting the latest Intel Skylake processors.
