Summary: So far this board has been perfect. Will update with any future developments.
Pros: Mated this motherboard to an Intel G3258 and couldn't be happier. Literally one-click over clock in UEFI Bios w/o needing to update. -Cheap -Ridiculously fast boot -Easy Overclock -All peripherals I was looking for
Cons: -Board a little on the flimsy side (but not a huge deal)
Cons: This build was for a customer that wanted a small form factor pc that vould be lugged around and play the latest games. It was working well hor him until he brought it in and said that he heard a pop and the computer wouldnt turn on. i immediately assumed it was the psu but after trying my 800 wa...
Summary: My PC case came with a fixed speed fan, so I purchased a PWM fan for quieter operation. I plugged the new fan into the MB chassis fan connector, and tried to set up a fan curve in the BIOS, but kept getting erratic fan operation.
Pros: Rock solid computing platform for my server. I've also used 2 more of these for general home computers.
Pros: Great little ITX board, does everything i want, good for future HTPC down the road.
Cons: audio noise issue through speakers at higher volumes. tried everything, 3 different amps, wires, its definitely something in the audio analog out (green plug). going to try optical out, should eliminate any noise....
Summary: I paired this with an i3 4330 and have had a great deal of issue with the HD4600 graphics. The ONLY driver that works is the stock one from mobo manufacturer. The windows update driver causes a bios screen loop.
Pros: Great price and easy to work with the clear instruction set.
Cons: The only issue I had was installing the stock drivers. My build has no CD ROM so I tried to use the internet flast from BIOS which I could not get to work. Easy work around was to use another computer with CD to load drivers on USB and transfer that way.
Summary: Not officially supported for linux according to some other articles/posts. Possible to get working, but a little more difficult because of driver compatability. Going strong for almost a year now. Overall good value buy.
Pros: Worked right out of box, booted up with relative ease Running quiet, cool, efficiently Relatively cheap at the time (esp. for 4th generation miniATX board) Controls fan well Able to run my home Linux server(Ubuntu Server 12.04) perfectly fine with minimal driver issues BIOS okay to navigate, menu...
Cons: Lack of support (esp. for linux/ubuntu) Wake on lan (WOL) support tricky to set up for Linux
Summary: I really can't believe the value of this motherboard.
Pros: Price and features. I have had a 4770k in this motherboard for the past 4 months at 4.4Ghz rock solid stable. Recently I wanted to try out the G3258 and this board did not disappoint. With the latest BIOS 2.10 it does support the G3258 and it overclocks beautifully on such a low cost board. 4.6 G...
Cons: None whatsoever in my experience with the board.
Pros: It fit perfectly in my Cooler Master Elite 110 case without any major issues.
Cons: Well, for one, the memory channel on this board is defective and won't recognize my RAM (tested with another PC; working fine). So this board is completely useless, whatever other features it has. What a piece of junk. For $75 and rush processing/shipping fees, I expect things to actually work wh...
