    This is so cool!!

    Asrock MXM IPC-Q370-12V motherboard!

    This seems fun, built a mini PC with an MXM card! Just seems like it could be fun.

    But it says "12V DC-In (4-pin plug PWR cable for maximum 200 watt DC input)" ? That is it? That is a bit of a bummer. Still could be pretty fun to have a creative build.

    How to mount a cooler on the MXM card, or what kind of cooling solution to use would also be a potential issue.

    I wonder if the MXM Quadros or Tesla MXM cards can be used on a build with this, or tested?

    This is the "Industrial" version of the Z390 Asrock Deskmini GTX board.

    They have a similar version of previous Deskmini GTX boards, but they sure are fun sized.

    Interesting but impractical outside of special use cases.

    This would be more of an edge device IMO where you would mount it inside an existing cabinet with other equipment to allow for some extra HP and inter cabinet communication. Cooling for higher CPU tasks would be done with the existing cabinet cooling with high CFM fans pushing air across everything. The CPU would need a tower cooler to dissipate heat across more surface area.

    200W isn't going to get you much from the stand point of higher processing power. The board doesn't even have a single PCI slot on it for any mods . I suppose you could use the secondary M2 for an adapter of some sort to mux additional ports of need.
