Intel m-itx 1150 motherboard recommendation

I am looking to use my i3-4170 lga 1150, ssd, and 1050ti video card in a new m-itx build. Can someone recommend an affordable and reliable m-itx motherboard for these parts. I tried looking around at ncix and canada computers and it looks like they are all out of stock of 1150 m-itx boards.

You're looking for Haswell and Broadwell, Skylake has come and gone and we are now at Kabylake

It will be tough to find, you'll need to look at used.

It's gonna be hard to find. You can look for h81, h87, h97 chipset boards. With ITX you also have to check if the board has onboard WiFi or not since there's no expansion slot for WiFi (unless you use USB dongle).

I run an Asus h81i pro on my media PC and it works well. Also check and sort motherboards that are socket 1150 and ITX. It should show you what stores still carry them.

Here's one for example. Double check if bios update is needed to support your chip. This board doesn't have wifi.

If you see a deal on one grab one quick, I had the same issue earlier this year when my mobo failed (I was playing around with it) and took me a week to find one in stock that wouldn't cost me 200+
