mSATA support: The Z87E-ITX supports mSATA through a compatible Mini-PCI Express slot on the underside of the board. Suitable mSATA drives are available in the 'you may also require' section.
Onboard RAID: The Z87E-ITX supports Intel Rapid Storage Technology which provides the following RAID levels via the Intel Z87 Express Chipset: RAID 0 - data striping; RAID 1 - data mirroring; RAID 0+1 (or RAID 10) - data striping and mirroring; RAID 5 - distributed parity.
Suitable Processors: The Z87E-ITX board supports 4th Gen "Haswell" processors. The Z87E-ITX is *not* provided with a processor. Suitable 4th generation processors are available here or in the 'you may also require' section to the left. A BIOS update (using a "Haswell" processor) may be required if a "Haswell Refresh" processor is to be fitted.
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 GA-Z87N-WiFi with a standard Intel Socket 1150 heatsink: The CFI-A7879, ES32067, ES30068, ES34069, Venus 669, Compucase 8K01, Compucase 8K07, Silverstone SG05, Jou Jue NU-528i 220W and Jou Jue NU-568i 220W.
Heatsinks: The standard heatsink provided with 65W and 84W TDP CPUs will fit taller cases (including Compucase 8K01/8K07, Jou Jye 526/528/568). To use this board in a 1U case please use the Dynatron K2 1U Side blower heatsink and a 35W or 65W TDP CPU.
Typical M350 configuration: To use this board in the M350, we recommend the 150W AC Adapter and picoPSU-150-XT or picoPSU-160-XT together with a 65W TDP CPU and Akasa 7106HP or K25 heatsink or 35W TDP CPU and supplied heatsink, plus 1 or 2 sticks of DDR3 RAM and a 2.5in HDD/SSD (add an M350 HDD tray to use 2x HDD/SSDs).
