Help me find a motherbord for the HDPLEX H3 V3 Fanless PC Chassis

Recommended Posts

I watch a video on YouTube where someone was building a silent pc with the HDPLEX H3 V3 Fanless PC Chassis.

So I was going to do the same (: But unfortunately the Gigabyte H370M DS3H is out of production.


Can you help me find a replacement?


I going to use the server as a roon core / roon endpoint connected to my dac with USB.


Requirement for the MB

  • 2 x NVMe
  • 2 x PCI slots
  • Disable SATA, GPU and maybe sound and build in USB
  • Size Mini-ITX


CPU could be the Intel i5-9400 C.


This is my shopping list so fare


  • HDPlex H3 Case with psu
  • Gigabyte H370M DS3H
  • Intel i5-9400 CPU
  • G.Skill Ripjaws V RAM
  • Crucial P1 NVMe SSD
  • Matrix Audio Element H usb card
  • PSU for usb card

I have been looking into the same, after watching the video.  Look carefully at the motherboard PCIe slots with respect to the rear panel on HDPLEX H3 V3.  Many of the microATX board leave space for a nVMe card between the first PCIe slot and the third slot.  I believe the HDPLEX case is arranged so only cards in slot 1 and 2 will have rear panel access.  I ended up getting a GigaByte B365M DS3H motherboard, which has slots configured the same as the H370M DS3H.  It only has one NVMe slot, so it may not meet your requirements.
