I have purchased an MSI motherboard recently but it didn't support the wattage for the older Pentium D processors.
So I replaced it with a GIGABYTE GA-G31M-ES2L
That was a really small Micro-ATX motherboard. So far it seems to work just fine.

It's funny that Small Form Factor mainboards are much smaller than Micro-ATX. I've used Micro-ATX many times, when high performance wasn't needed. One of these days I gotta get brave and build a SFF little box.

What's even "crazier" is that the Raspberry Pi is even smaller, yet less functional, tbh. You can't plug DIMMs into it, sigh.
