SilverStone has shown off their one of their Mini-STX enclosures which can hold a motherboard of the new 5"x5" STX form factor, which is smaller than Mini ITX.

This new form factor will allow PC builders to create PCs which are much smaller than is currently possible, with many of these motherboards using a laptop like, DC power in power solution and again making the system/ chassis smaller.

Above is a picture of the motherboard that is contained inside the below system, which has a full LGA 1151 socket and can handle CPUs with a TDP of up to 65W, making this motherboard unsuitable for Intel's i7 6700K and i5 6600K CPUs. 

The below case is not a production model, but it gives us a look at what we can expect in the future for these form factors, allowing us to build some tiny custom PCs.

The case above looks like it was made with this specific motherboard in mind, given the fact that the rear and front IO slots line up perfectly with the case, though it could be passable that SilverStone is considering making mini PCs.

That's basically what the small rig enthusiasts have been asking for for ages and ages. Why, for example, must ITX use full sized ram when we have great laptop memory now and etc.Quote

Well, there was also Thin Mini-ITX which in my opinion is pretty awesome. Love small form factor PCs with a nice amount of horsepower.Quote

Yeah I like watching them being built I did satisfy my urge and build a ITX PC but I never did switch to it full time. All it really needed was a better CPU..

Have a read of that. If he pulls it off that's going to be a serious rocket.Quote

Well because memory will fit on any board with a full PCIe slot. It's epic if you don't need a graphics card though
