Kodi machine possiblilities? I like the performance of my A6 setup but the mATX case is a little too big for my SO's taste(bought it).

Quick review search(in theory, sounds about perfect for kodi/htpc, i.e. reducing heat/quiet operation):

'users should also be aware that the H110M-STX motherboard does not support CPUs with a TDP greater than 65 W. This essentially means it supports all current LGA 1151 Skylake CPUs except the i5-6600K and i7-6700K.'

'The DeskMini 110 is designed to fill the gap between Mini-ITX and Pico-ITX, and it's only slightly larger than most NUCs. The real advantage of the DeskMini 110 is its ability to utilize desktop "Skylake-S" series CPUs such as the i7-6700, or in our case the i5-6500. Many NUCs and other devices use "Skylake-U" series CPUs such as the popular i7-6500U, but a desktop class i3-6100 is capable of matching the i7-6500U as ASRock shows in its marketing materials and what we have seen in our own benchmarks.


In fact, the performance difference between "Skylake-U" and "Skylake-S" series processors is staggering. My own testing shows roughly double the score in CPU bound benchmarks such as CINEBENCH when comparing an i7-6500U and a desktop i5-6500. The power constraints of the "Skylake-U" processors affect their performance, the benefit being that they produce less heat and thus smaller and quieter devices. The mini-STX form factor aims to mash together a desktop class Skylake CPU with mobile bound memory and storage technologies that utilize little space, providing the best of both worlds. Today I take a look at our first mini-STX based system, the ASRock DeskMini 110.'

This is a barebone system, as clearly stated in the OP. For those wondering, it requires additional CPU, hard drive , and memory. It can take Intel Core i7/i5/i3/ Pentium / Celeron (LGA1151); SATA HDD/SDD or M.2 SSD; and "laptop" DDR4 RAM (two slots) up to 32GB.

Any recommendations on a Xeon CPU for this? Figure something like this can replace my aging HP N40L. Looking to run ESXI primarily to handle Plex transcoding and a few VMs.

I just did a build on one of these. Keep in mind the M.2 port is only for NVMe, so if you're not prepared to invest in that, get standard SATA drives.

My build is this, a Celeron G4560, 32GB of RAM, and an SSD I had laying around - running Proxmox for a home lab.

Yes!! Been waiting for a sale on this. Thanks deelseaker! For those wondering, ASRock has a special beta BIOS for Mac OS X support. Thinking of making this into a nice super compact Hackintosh.

CPU support list on their site lists no Xeon CPUs, so that might be a risky gamble.

$100 gets you a Motherboard with WiFi, External Power Supply and a Case.
What i'm wondering is if it'll work with the G4560 or something similar out of the box..
