Suitable Processors: The Zotac Z68-ITX-A-E is *not* provided with a processor. At product launch, this desktop board supports up to 130W TDP Intel i3, i5 and i7 2nd Gen Core processors. Suitable processors are available here
Suitable Cases: All our Mini-ITX chassis with at least a 120W power supply, and an appropriate low profile heatsink if necessary. If using a larger than 65W TDP processor, a larger power supply than 120W may be required. Some suitable cases that will work with the Zotac Z68-ITX-A-E with a standard Intel Socket 1155 heatsink: The ES32067, ES30068, ES34069, Venus 669, Compucase 8K01, Compucase 8K07, Silverstone SG05, Jou Jue NU-528i 220W and Jou Jue NU-568i 220W.
picoPSU support: Due to the proximity of the ATX connector to the DIMM slots, it is only possible to fit one stick of memory into this board if a picoPSU is used.
Suitable Power Supplies: The picoPSU-160-XT & 192W AC Adapter or picoPSU-150-XT & 4pin 150W AC Adapter or 2.5mm Jack plug 150W AC Adapter combinations are both suitable for this motherboard. Only 4pin 12V needs to be connected to the 8pin ATX 12V connector.
Overclockable: Adventurous users can take advantage of the overclocking capabilities available on the Z68-ITX-A-Eto push 2nd Generation Intel Core K-series processors beyond the stock limits for an extra performance kick.
Heatsinks: The standard heatsink provided with the CPU will fit taller cases (including Compucase 8K01/8K07, Jou Jye 526/528/568). To use this board in a low profile case (e.g. M300, M350) please use the Akasa 7106HP Low Profile heatsink. To use this board in a 1U case please use the Dynatron K2 1U Side blower heatsink.
Suitable Memory: The Zotac Z68-ITX-A-E uses DDR3 DIMM memory. This is not compatible with DDR/DDR2 memory. Fully tested DDR3 DIMMs are available here.
Extended Warranty: Since Feb 2008, Zotac have provided an extended 5 year warranty on their motherboards. Please register with Zotac here within 14 days of purchase to qualify and for further details.
