A : Power Supply Unit (450W)
B : Standard Mini-ITX Motherboard (Z87-M8)
C : Standard PCIe x16 VGA card Holder
D : Hard Disk Drive Tray
E : ODD + 2.5” SSD/HDD Tray

  Standard Mini-ITX Case for Endless Upgrade Options
M8 is not your typical gaming rig, it has everything packed within a standard mini-ITX sized case with advanced flexibility for future upgrades. Gamers may customize their own gaming machine, including the PCIe x16 graphics card, mini-ITX motherboard, CPU, memory, 1 set of 3.5" hard drive or 4 sets of 2.5" solid state drives and even other components. M8_web_Chassis_Design_img_6-2.jpg
Streamline Build with
Aluminum Alloy
Robustly built with 2.5mm of aluminum alloy, the chassis exudes the elegance of simplicity, meanwhile the red and black color scheme screams out hardcore gaming.   M8_web_Chassis_Design_img_1.jpg   M8_web_Chassis_Design_img_1-2.jpg
M8_web_Side_Cover_1.gifM8_web_Side_Cover_2.gif   Magnetic Case Design

Employing grade N48 magnets to hold the case together, this innovative design makes it easier for users to quickly disassemble or assemble the chassis.

Plus an uniquely designed set of keys to ensure all of the components are sitting safely inside the chassis.

Handles for Portability
Sturdy aluminum handles on both sides of the case for advanced portability.   M8_web_Chassis_Design_img_3.jpg
M8_web_Chassis_Design_img_4.jpg   Creative Front Panel Design

A cunningly designed hidden front panel which includes a 4 in 1 card reader (SD3.0 / MMC / MS / MS PRO) plus microphone and headphone jacks.



Intensive Heat Dissipation Mechanisms
For the system to remain cool while gaming, there's a total of 4 quiet built in chassis fans that suck in cold air and pump out the heat simultaneously.   M8_web_Chassis_Design_img_5.jpg

ASRock and BMW Group DesignworksUSA collaborated on a small form factor (SFF) system called M8 that offers "unstoppable gaming" and lots of other hyperbole, though before we get into the nuts and bolts of the machine, a little background is in order. ASRock, as you probably already know, is a player in the PC space and was originally formed as a subsidiary of Asus. It's now a part of Pegatron, which itself was spun off from Asus.

The M8 is coming soon, though ASRock didn't spill the beans on price.

 

I love small form factor beast PC so I would love to pick on of these up. What do you think?

 

 

Thanks for reading and Have a Good Day.

I think it looks neat.

 

Random question, though. Why is it that a premium brand like BMW teams up with "B brands"? ASRock isn't Foxconn or anything, but it isn't Asus (I see ASRock as Scion is to Toyota - I know they are under Asus), Gigabyte or MSI. Same goes for their Level 10 thing with Thermaltake. Why no partnership with Lian Li, Silverstone, CaseLabs or Corsair?

I really can't get into the BMW aesthetic on all these peripherals and cases they've worked on. I guess they're just not my style.

Wow some people love this case some people hate it.

I am confused, does this come with a motherboard?

or are they just selling a case+power supply unit, such as how some of the itx cases are

 

also, how would one cool their processor with this?

It doesn't look like there'll be a whole lot of space for cpu coolers. Could the standard cooler even fit in there?

To be fair, when it comes to motherboards, I only ever get Asus or gigabyte. I don't trust any others.
