great match for silverstone SG08

MSI Z87I LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Pros: I have it in a silverstone SG08 but it will work well with most SG cases. The cooler I have is a cooler master GeminII. It fits perfectly after I remove the CPU fan as it's not necessary in SG08. Some other ITX boards have SATA and power connectors behind RAM slots or next to PCI-E. That's bad for SG cases. This one has most ports lined up on the opposite side of PCI-E. That's the best layout for an ITX in my opinion.

Cons: I don't know the thinking behind dual LAN for a mini ITX board intended for SFF.

sweet spot

Pros: best capacity to price ratio if you catch it on sale then it's not much more expansive than the 1TB version.

Cons: none

great choice for a boot drive

Pros: I have this case with MSI Z87I and EVGA 780 SC with ACX cooler. Without going SLI, SFF doesn't get any better than this.

Cons: some cables are way too long.
