6 posts in this topic

I am looking for a very small form factor case and motherboard

I will be building 2 one for pfsense and the other as a webbrowser/dvd player to be hooked up to a bigscreen (no gaming or heavy usage)

 

motherbord has to have wifi to keep size down if possible

How is the wifi in it?

It's really good, they have it in their bedroom and use it for Netflix/video streaming in general. It's about 25-30 meters away from the router through a couple of quite thick walls and they have no problem with speeds :) The only thing that might put you off is you need to buy your own SO-DIMM memory and mSATA SSD. All together it cost me about ?300 to build for them with 4Gb ram and a 60Gb SSD. I'm sure that if you shop around though you'll be able to find things a bit cheaper and the UK is quite bad for prices. For reference these are the parts I used.
