I used the same Kingston HyperX Impact (HX421S13IBK2/16) DDR4 2133MHz SO-DIMM kit I used in my ASRock BeeBox-S review along with a Samsung 950 Pro NVMe based PCI-E 3.0 x4 SSD. GIGABYTE made sure to include an oversized thermal pad to cool down the M.2 drive you use.

Since the BRIX BKi5A-7200 uses an i5-7200U and ASRock's BeeBox-S uses the i5-6200U, we can see the improvements that Intel has brought to the table with Kaby Lake. Both CPUs have the same TDP, but the i5-7200U is clocked 200-300MHz higher.
Regardless of clocks, Intel was able to get more performance out of the 14nm node. While higher clocks are nice, Kaby Lake also has a much nicer integrated GPU and scores better in gaming benchmarks.
Storage and Network Performance
ixChariot Network Throughput:
Storage and network performance are also very strong. The BRIX BKi5A-7200 provides the same storage performance as a full-blown desktop.
