EVGA Z87 Stinger Mini-ITX Motherboard Review

There’s more Mini-ITX goodness in store today thanks to EVGA’s Z87 Stinger.

Since the dawn of computers, one goal has always been to stuff more power into a smaller space.

Even more impressive is that almost every feature of a full sized ATX motherboard has been crammed into the miniature footprint of the Minix 890GX…and it can overclock, too. Read More
