MSI's Z87I GAMING AC is a mini-ITX board suitable for a small mobile gaming machine thanks to a 16x PCIe 3.0 port and both a KillerNIC for wired connectivity and dual band WiFi thanks to the onboard Intel 7260 chip.  Also worth noting is the PS/2 port, aka the gaming port, which has been modified to accept a polling rate of 1000Hz for either a mouse or keyboard.  [H]ard|OCP had some small difficulty with the extra drivers for the KillerNIC and Command Centre but as they are optional that did not concern them overly; especially once they got around to overclocking with this board.  Check out the full review here.

Sounds like a nice little board. I just bought a Asus Maximus VI Gene mATX board 3 weeks ago, and i really love it. Threw it into a Corsair 350D case with a i7 4770k and a Corsair H100i.

I guess I'm a dinosaur, because I still like my "gigantic towers".
