It seems like we can always count on Zotac to release a mini-ITX motherboard based on a new chipset. One of their more recent mini-ITX motherboards is the Zotac Z68ITX-A-E based on Intel’s Z68 chipset. Zotac has not only made its mark designing HTPC-friendly mini-ITX motherboards, but by designing exceptionally feature-rich mini-ITX boards, and the Z68ITX-A-E looks to be no exception.

With hundreds of content channels to choose from, the addition of three new channels to the Roku Channel Store wouldn’t normally be big news, but today’s announcement is a doozy, if only for one of the three channels.

Thermaltake DH 202 Touch Chassis Reviewed


In this day and age, it seems that home theater PC (HTPC) chassis styles have more niches than ever with many preferring smaller, minimalist and understated looks without a display. Thermaltake’s DH 202 Touch case wildly bucks that trend with a huge 7″ touch interface dominating the front of the very large chassis. If you’re the type that can handle […]
