I have just received my Mainboard (11th Gen Intel® Core™) - i5-1135G7. I am planning to use it as a standalone computer.
Where is the power connection. What is the voltage and amps needed etc.
Where is the HDMI output?
Is there a link to the motherboard documentation?
Thanks in advance for the community support.
Well to answer #1 and #2, use any of the 4 USB C ports on the motherboard that you want. It’s designed to be modular. As for #3 yes, there is tons of resources all over the community, just search for it.
E.g. Getting started guide with a bare motherboard - Creators & Developers - Framework Community
Just uses USB-C PD. Ideally Framework recommends a USB-C PD source capable of 5A @ 20v for standalone operation, however PD sources of around 60w (3A @ 20v) should also work (but the performance may be slightly reduced).
No HDMI directly on the board. The USB-C ports can carry a DisplayPort signal, which many hubs and adapters (including the Framework HDMI expansion card) will translate to HDMI to get you an HDMI signal.
Thank you all for your prompt help and responses. This is indeed a wonderful forum.
