The DeskMini 310 is ASRock's latest iteration of their SFFPC using their STX motherboard form factor. The form factor allows for NUC style expansion options but with support for a desktop CPU, in this case, up to 65W.
We tossed in an i7-8700, and it did just fine with Intel's stock cooler and ASRock's VRM on their H310M-STX motherboard. Let's see how this SFFPC stacks up against the rest.
We put in an i7-8700, as you need to use an 8th gen CPU because of the chipset. We also added in two 8GB DDR4 2666MHz SO-DIMM modules, as that is the highest support DRAM speed. We used an NVMe drive from Kingston, the KC1000 512GB. The motherboard offers two fan headers, but we only used the one for our Intel stock cooler. There was a WIFI kit included, and it included the Intel Wireless-AC 3168 controller, but you can use any M.2 WIFI card, including the new Intel CNVi modules.
The DeskMini 310 is $157 on Newegg.
