worthy successor mainboard of the Intel DH87RL


Hello all,

are there any plans for an worthy successor mainboard of the Intel DH87RL?

I want to build a HTPC after august this year and the DH87RL board really fits my needs.

I want to avoid buying one year old Hardware in case there are no hints or features about new series 9 media boards from Intel and I can't find any helpful information so far.

What I need are the following features:

Micro-ATX board

CIR (Consumer Infrared) port/header !!!! with wake up from S5 state!

mSATA port/slot for Intel 525 SSD (system drive)

min. 5 SATA ports (4 HDDs + BD drive)

HDMI or at least DisplayPort for video playback

Two dual USB header on mainboard (usb 2.0 is enough)

actual key components:

Intel DH87RL

Intel Core i5-4670T (new i5-4690T with newer mainboard/chipset)

Intel 525 SSD 120 GB mSATA (or m2 or whatever comes with series 9 chipset)

IR receiver for CIR connector

Kind regards.
