An eSATA socket on a desktop motherboard backpanel is yesterday's news too. Among DDR4 motherboards available from Newegg, prices start at $250 for an ASRock, $540 for anything better, and nothing in mATX. Even without the DDR4 restriction, mATX pickings are very slim, 9 total, all with Q87 or older chipsets.
