From my research some time ago, the chipset does have the option for bifurcation, but no consumer ITX board has the option (it also have to be in the BIOS).
Not all Z97 or newer has it due to the BIOS need. Asrock seems to be the first (and only?).

Also, he post a link in this post:

Uh what's bifurcation??? Lol

The only thing that scares me with the itx board is when I'm doing extended stress tests the vrm get really hot... I know its somewhat "normal" for vrm to get upto 70c but they're also the hottest components on my system... I did 4.6ghz awhile back in my rig but backed off because I need my rig to last me another year or 2...not sure how long this itx and 2500k will last but I've got a great overclocking chip... I used to get upto 70c using pk-2 @ 4.5ghz but since changing to clu I'm now under 59c...lol

Bifurcation is a chipset feature that is enabled in the bios that can split the pcie lanes from x16 to x8,x8. Cool vid here that kind of explains it: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/intelligent-systems/maho-bay/core-i7-pcie-slot-bifurcation-demo.html#t=2m30s

Finished the design of the case. Here's a look at the back side.



Hacked together a test bench. Going to order another nano tonight or tomorrow!
