DFI MI P55-T36 mini-ITX Motherboard packs a lot of power

The general rule a few years ago was that the smaller a computer was the less powerful it became which was essentially true given that the focus had been on beefy computers which left the smaller system relegated to a niche status.

The DFI MI P55-T36 mini-ITX Motherboard will astound you with its Intel Core i5/i7 supporting LGA1156 socket and full PCIe X16 expansion slot should you want that mighty dual GPU solution. bit-tech has the review:

So, here it is, the littlest of DFI motherboards: the MI P55-T36. It simultaneously has the potential to be the highest performing, small motherboard out there. We’ve dropped in a Core i7-870 and overclocked it without too much issue, and it’s likely you’ll be using a cooler larger than the board itself if you fancy a flurry down that route. That’s not to forget that unlike every other mini-ITX board on the market – this one does not have on-board video, meaning you’ll have to drop a graphics card into its fully fledged 16x PCI-E 2.0 slot. Whether that’s a basic Radeon HD 4350 or lightening quick HD 5970 – that’s your call.

If you do opt for that massive graphics card you’re more than likely going to have to grab yourself a massive case to go along with it.
