Kinda. No need to say too cheap. if money was a different situation right
now, I'd just drop the $150-200 on a ion box. But right now, I can't
justify that. My other frontend just died. I haven't found anything like
say under 60. So I saw the MB that comes with the CPU pre sodered in for
like $20. Figured power supply is $10, salvage heatsink/fan from old
frontend, just got to figure out a way to power it on.

Do you have one to verify this? And eh as a frontend on a USB stick, don't
really care about shutting down gracefully TBH. Ty for your time/response.
