New motherboard for PC from Taiwanese BIOSTAR with mini-ITX form factor and named BIOSTAR J4125NHU.
A motherboard that includes a low-power Intel Celeron J4125 processor that, from what we see in the brand’s photographs, only includes a heatsink for cooling, so we will have 0 noise in this aspect. A motherboard suitable for mounting from an office PC to a multimedia center and easily expandable thanks to its two DDR4 DIMM slots and its PCIe 2.0 x16 slot that gives us plenty of room if we want to mount a 4K multimedia centre by clicking on a graphics card.
