It has HDMI 1.4, I want to build a DIY HTPC mainly for 3D MVC playback

If it doesn't work (Intel graphics seems to have a problem with HDMI 2.0 which might be purposely) you could always install an Nvidia GPU and use whatever port on it you desire. I'd recommend HDMI 2.0. Then you can use 4k settings everywhere and still decode 3D MVC perfectly without ever changing a setting. On top of that, your 1080 3D will upscale on your 4k display. Makes for an enhanced resolution GUI too. Not to mention Windows desktop will also render in 4k and not be limited to 1080. 4k is the new standard imo. Too bad there is no standard above 1080 for 3D. Would solve a lot of state of the art problems. With 3D slowed down until HDR and 4k is milked, all we can do is work with what we can.

*Edit*
This would still require PDVD and the Intel Media SDK install OR setting all the environments to 1080. This would allow you to have an unlimited port to work with.
