Summary: As stated it works great for me with my Nas4Free Box right now I have two 2TB drives, one 3TB drive and a 221GB drive for the operating system. I have Transmission and Sickbeard running with know problems. During heavy use the CPU shoots up to 99% but never crashes or anything like that. 5 Media Centers playing the same high def movie at the same time with Transmission and Sickbeard running...NO JUMPS IN THE FRAME.
Summary: This motherboard is one of the best I have seen or used for an all-in-one unit with CPU, video, lan, etc on board. It has a good selection of ports with six SATA 6Gbps ports, built in video with DVD, and even a PCI-e slot. I love the fanless design - and Asus did a good job here of making sure things are staying cool even with the passive cooling. The heatsync is large - but doesn't get in the way of any other components that I've tried to use.
Summary: Due to the CPU speed, certain games might not run on it (Halo2) or at least will give a warning. It is good for me and I use it to provide remote desktop support up to 3 customers at the time, plus I run other 4 programs which have access to databases in other locations. I am happy with it.
Asus C60M1-I AMD C-60/ AMD FCH A50M/ DDR3/ SATA3/ A&V&GbE/ Mini ITX motherboard

Summary: Amazing product for the money. I use this as a music system at work. It replaced a system that was over ten years old, and the difference is fantastic. This ASUS mB and AMD dual core chip would be fine for web surfing or music processing, but I wouldn't try using it of any type of heavy gaming or challenging data processing chores.
Summary: This MB is a work of art with a stylish yet functional oversize fanless heatsink, 6 SATA ports, and a generous itx-size lay out for the various connection points. The BIOS interface is pretty, although I would prefer the familiar utilitarian BIOS provided in generations past. While the working motherboard is a pleasure to use ... and rock solid stable ... you first need to get your hands on a working motherboard.
Summary: Linux and FreeBSD diver support is already there. Running NAS4Free (a FreeBSD 9 distro). Haven't tried overclocking it. Bios is quite good. It has a "silent mode", which is nice. It does rock a single 8 gig ram module, leaving the second free. It did run a little hot, and I end up putting a small CPU fan on the heat sync.
Summary: This mini-itx motherboard and CPU, with the graphics processor built in do such a wonderful job at streaming TV, and movies at a full 1080p its amazing. I run Linux (Ubuntu 64 bit) and XBMC for a nice little home entertainment center. You get a lot of bang for your dollar with this board.
Great for NAS, but a little tempermental booting off usb stick

Summary: I fought with this mobo trying to get it to boot off of my USB stick for a couple of days thinking I did something incompatible with the MBR. After updating the BIOS still no luck. It wasn't until I reset the BIOS TWICE that I could get it to boot off the USB reliabiy. Although I'm spending time writing about this very painful issue overall I like the motherboard and haven't had any compatibility issues with Ubuntu Server or FreeBSD.
