System is up and running:

Case: http://geizhals.de/ms-tech-ci-70-a725798.html (63 Euro)
Board: http://geizhals.de/asrock-j4205-itx-90-m...25586.html (120 Euro) alternative: http://www.mindfactory.de/product_info.p...25605.html (90 Euro)
Memory: 2x http://www.mindfactory.de/product_info.p...14925.html (50 Euro)
SSD: https://www.alternate.de/Transcend/TS16G...ct/1171310? (30 Euro)
Sum: 263 Euro or 233 Euro - fully silent.

One thing that is missing is VP9 Profile 2 support. But hey (consider the 200 rule), meaning the core components (Board + Memory) < 200 euro as you can keep the case and the ssd.

Edit: For now I think you can also savely go with a 3445 version of the board and save another 30 euros.
The best thing is: In future you just have to change the board, rest will stay....so upgrade always will cost around 100€

Mindfactory are really great, got delivery to Sweden within 3 days Smile
I have some BIOS issues
My SSD is not visible until i enable CSM compatibility.
If i choose ultra fast boot my SSD is again gone
If i disable onboard audio then audio is also gone from HDMI, i just want to disable ALC892 but they are somehow connected to the Intel audio also
Disabling USB Legacy removed all usb connections before Windows so i had to reset flash on the motherboard.
My TV show "unsupported resolution" during start up, before windows boot.


Otherwise great board with great future potential. I'm happy that we will now get some dedicated support from the developers Smile
if anyone is wondering pulse8 usb adapter works fine with the asrock board
Does 4K Netflix work on Apollo lake under Windows 10 / Edge browser ?
I have 2 Apollo Lake htpcs where YouTube is broken with piotrasd version. Someone else too, or is that known? Thanks

Take care with drm-intel-next. It seems it is currently "a bit" broken. I got severe volume issues, e.g. zapping TV and suddenly the soundcard sent out stuff terribly loud :-)

@piotrasd: You should have realized that, right?
Can I switch for testing to millhouse release without compatibility issues?!

Yeah, no problem to do so.
ASRock has released today HDMI Firmware upgrade v1.61 for BeeBox-S (Kaby Lake). There are no release notes, and not even instructions how to run it.

Available here

It comes with Windows only GUI executable (BobcatAuxISPTool.exe). Run it as administrator. Update went without problems. Can't say I see any difference so far. Here is the log file after run:

====================================
12/26/16 13:30:17
====================================
Current Firmware Version: Bobcat App: MC2800 v1.56 (cut2.2)
Loading ISP driver... Done
Flash ID = 0xC213
Erasing flash (FFA1)... Done
Flash writing firmware... Done
Flash FW version comparison successful! (v1.61)
ISP completed!
System Reset ...Done
So you mean still the HDMI 2.0 problem's?!

So I will test it and when it fales I will have another server board :-)

From that screenshot it looks like you are starting it out of a zip.
If you are, try extracting it and running it as administrator.
No, extracted
