MSI Z77IA-E53: a well-equipped mini-ITX motherboard

The Z77IA-E53 embarks a LGA 1155 and a Z77 chipset and has a power stage to 7 phases which should provide reasonable performance in overclocking. Also on the PCB, two DDR3 slots, a single PCI-Express 3.0 x16 but also a mPCI-Express 2.0. In terms of connectivity, small but tough as they say with two SATA 6Gbps ports, two SATA 3Gbps with an eSATA 3Gbps also. Something to put one or two drives, with a SSD system and one or two HDD of storage…

At the back of the card we find many USB 2.0 (x4) ports, two USB 3.0 ports, 1Gb Ethernet port, WiFi, Bluetooth, and a combo mouse/keyboard PS2. To take advantage of the graphics processor, the card has a DVI and HDMI output . The price has not been announced, but this card is for those who want the mini-ITX with good capacity, and the price could be spicy!
