The horizontal connector can be a problem if a picoPSU is connected, since there is no space below for the cables that exit from it.

Very cool, just curious why did you lay the power connector horizontal?

Thanks 😀

And because I like the look of a side-entering ATX connector more.
This board is not as wide as MicroATX boards can be, so there is plenty of space in a MicroATX case.

The wires exit the top of picoPSU (except the extra peripheral connector).
The chinese clones off eBay exit the bottom, but I advise against using those.
The footprint can accommodate a vertical connector if one desires.

Another option may be to acquire a right angle adapter like this one, even if it is 24 pins, the 20 pins enter correctly: https://m.es.aliexpress.com/item/32880547486.html
