ASRock M8 Barebones Review: My Steam Box

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or so the saying goes.  Most development in home computers veers towards the ultra large (high impact gaming machines for 4K+) or the ultra-tiny (Intel NUC, Raspberry Pi).  The downside of these two extremes is usually cost, and most regular Joes go for something in the middle trading one side for the other.  One popular build right now is mini-ITX in a Bitfenix Prodigy chassis, as it offers space for a full on GPU or many 2.5” storage drives.  ASRock now come to the market with the M8 barebones based on a BMW design for the Z87 platform, at half the width of the Bitfenix Prodigy and a high build quality.  It mirrors what we are seeing with the latest consoles, and thus offers a prime opportunity as a Steam Box.
