Mini ATX vs Micro ITX for an AROS system?

I'm intrigued by @clusteruk's CDL 1500 plus case and was wondering whether there was any advantage in choosing between a micro-ATX or mini-ITX mobo for an AROS build? Is it possible?

What do you mean is it possible?

To fit in the case of install AROS?

If the first you have to ask ClusterUK. If secound it does not realy matter the size of the mobo but if compatible or not is the question. As most hardware now is usb 3 we have no support for that so better look for something little older with USB 2. Something with core2duo are in my experience very good with AROS. Then you also have a good chance that sound with HD audio is working. Sure thing is to add cards but depends on slots you have aviable.
You should have native gfx, you must have networking and sound.
Come up with some alternatives and I can guide you.

Actually it looks like mini-ITX is the preferred option for the case (I may have misheard ATX).

So it sounds like I'll need to find a mini-ITX mobo with USB2.0 and IDE not SATA?

I'll need a supported video card too. Any wisdom on onboard audio (Intel HD works yeah?), onboard NIC?

For reference, here's the potential layout:

Buying some older stuff with USB 2.0 it is a big chance audio works. Do you plan to use wi-fi or ethernet?

Wi-fi is no problem. Just buy the right type on ebay.

You would need a micro pci-express wi-fi card adapter so I don't know if Micro ITX have that. Maybe it only have one normal pci-express slot you will use for gfx-card?

Hmmmm... I guess the only way for Mini-ITX to work is with ethernet or a usb wifi dongle given the PCIe slot is going to be taken by the graphics card. Could a SATA drive be connected in legacy mode?

If the above stars aligned... maybe this mobo would work?

Not that one. We don't have support for USB 3 yet.
It is possible that we get USB 3 soon though. I know Neil is looking into it but difficult to say whey it is ready.
Find something older with USB 2 and Intel chipset.

You can also use android phone and share internet throug USB.

I thought it might work because the spec sheet claims it has USB 2.0 ports: https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/H110I-PLUS-CSM/specifications/

Thanks for the help. I'll keep searching!
