Effortless setup for Windows 8.1!

azasadny, Amazon
11 April 2014
  • Summary: This little system is great! I used the Thermaltake Element Qi case and 4GB of DDR3 SODIMM RAM, additional GT-610 video card, 120GB SSD and DVD RW drive. I installed Win 8.1 and the provided drivers and the system was all setup and ready to go in a few hours. If you're looking for a nice, reliable business PC or family PC (not gaming!), then this is for you! It's small, quiet and fast!!

solid low-powered entry level motherboard. (get lots of RAM though)

  • Summary: Repair shop; we order tons of these for our custom builds. Its for the entry-level machine build. Internet, word processing, kiosk, simple computer task.(the average user would Its a dual-core celeron... BUT still a celeron! (inherently slower! Comparable to the AMD E350) ... BUT it does perform well with Windows 7 + 4-6 GB of memory. If you are a light gamer (say minecraft, etc), be sure to add a PCIe video card.

Decent motherboard with some issues

Sauron@Mordor, Amazon
1 November 2013
  • Summary: The board works as advertised. It's got sufficient horsepower to act ad my home theater pc in a small shoebox-sized case. It handles 1080p video without issues and even does OK as a lightweight desktop PC in a pinch. It also appears to use VERY little power. A couple of nits: It has no integrated HDMI out port. My bad for not noticing (which is why I didn't return it), but I had to buy an extra PCIe graphics card.

Runs Windows 8.1 64bit

Michael J., Newegg
22 October 2013
  • Summary: Since my first review I've bought a couple more of these boards. I got a slightly better WEI on the next board with a 3.9 processor rating (and obviously that was from a Win7 installation since MS has removed this feature from Win 8.1).
  • Pros: Everything I've stated before. Plus Windows 8.1 detects all components and easily installs the drivers.
  • Cons: None

Doesn't work with all operating systems

CopyDoctor, Amazon
23 August 2013
  • Summary: I bought two of these main boards and used them in 2 pc's. Each pc had the exact same hardware in it. On one PC I loaded Windows 7, 64 bit operating system, and the board worked flawlessly. If this was the only system I loaded, then I would have given it a 5 star rating. The second system I tried to load Windows Home Server (2008) and got the dreaded Blue Screen of Death once the installation program rebooted after loading files onto the pc.
