Product Description

New Mini-STX Format PC, dual LAN, high performance


  • Miniature dimensions with full power desktop CPU
  • Kaby Lake 7th Generation Quad Core i5 7400
  • Ultra fast PCIe M.2 SSD
  • Options for additional 2x 2.5" SSD or HDD
  • Integrated HD Graphics 630
  • Displayport output with 4k @ 60Hz
  • HDMI output with 4k @ 24hz
  • Dual Gigabit LAN
  • Type-C USB 3.0 Port


This new mini-STX format PC uses a 5"x5" motherboard that has a socketed CPU that supports standard desktop CPUs with 65W TDP. This listing features the latest PCIe M.2 SSD with blistering speeds. There is also space for 2x 2.5" SSD (or HDD) storage so you can easily add storage in future.

The latest 7th Generation (Kaby Lake) Quad Core i5-7400 processor gives performance of a high end large PC, yet it is packed into a miniature box measuring 193 x 153 x 67mm. This is a volume of less than 2 litres, compared to typically 7-8 litres in "SFF" Small Form Factor PCs. In normal use the fan is almost silent, and the PC has full quad core turbo boosted performance when needed.

The PC can be used for everything from office work or general home PC, or as a media centre connected to a LCD TV set using HDMI.

The rear of the case has VESA mounting holes (100x100) so the PC can be mounted onto the back of large LCD monitors/TVs that have VESA mounting holes. Rubber feet and a pair of stands are supplied for use on a desktop, either standing vertically or horizontally.

Configured to your specification

We can configure this unit with up to 32GB DDR4 Memory. As well as the inbuilt M.2 PCIe SSD an extra 2 x 2.5" Solid State Drive (SSD) or Hard Disk Drive (HDD) can be fitted, enabling various options for SSD, HDD and SSHD hybrid disks. Hardware RAID is NOT supported. See the performance information below.  Please contact us if you want a custom configuration. We can also pre-install with Windows or other Operating Systems.

If you choose the Windows installation option, as well as installing on the internal SSD/HDD drive, so it is ready to use out of the box, we also include a USB memory stick with the Windows installation, so you can rebuild or repair Windows if you need to.

You need to supply your own Monitor, Keyboard and Mouse. Please contact us if you need any recommendations or want custom additions bundled with your order.
