Just in case you didn't want to upgrade your CPU to Kaby lake to take advantage of Play Ready 3.0 and Netflix 4K support, you can do it on GTX 1050 4GB+ models of GPU now.

Yea, plug it in, open netflix (Usually a netflix original as they support 4K) and then press Shift + Ctrl + Alt + S and if you see 16000 kbps in the list, then you can do it.  If not, it either the content isn't 4K or your display doesn't support it

I only use fanless (passively cooled) graphics cards and there is one available (shortly) using this chipset, although somewhat more expensive.  Palit GTX 1050 Ti Kalmx.

Shame that's not half height.  Though I  don't know if people are still building SFF HTPC's anymore.

Agreed, though it is good to see this functionality come to chipsets outside of Kaby Lake.  One of the reasons I upgraded to the 10 series Initially was because of it's PlayReady 3.0 support and HDCP 2.2 support.  I think Intel and Netflix (as well as maybe Microsoft) had a sweetheart deal to give exclusivity to Intel, guess that period is up.
