Summary: This is the heart of a homebuilt NAS. It has a UEFI (newer replacement for BIOS) which has all sorts of settings not found in the older BIOS. The only glitch I can allude to is that I haven't figured out how to make it reboot automatically from a USB thumb drive without manual intervention; but I suspect that is my fault, not that of the board. It has been running 24/7 for several months with no hiccups. Board runs cool with Intel I3-4130 and stock fan.
Summary: See pros. Compsman never looked at what he was buying. Go to your major retailer or intel.com to find memory specs. Also use G.SKILL ram if you can afford it as it is compatible with almost every mobo.
Pros: This is a great motherboard. Do not listen to compsman. He is idiotic. He did not do his pc build homework. Pentium are limited to only 1333mhz memory speed. I3 are limited to 1600mhz. I5 and i7 are pretty much unrestricted. SATA 6 performance? Phenomenlal. Paired with a GTX 760 ITX this board is just amazing. Pair it with an SSD and a 7200rpm 2.5" drive and you got a killer LAN box in a elite 110 case. Give it reliable power and cooling and you got yourself sub 60C t...
Summary: I been reviewing several motherboard brands recently in building a small HTPC, I decided to try the higher end Asus brand. Got this in from Amazon in a timely manner and installed my new CPU on it along with the memory. Put in into my case and when I went to hook up my SSD on SATA1, I noticed the connector was very loose! When I unplugged the cable, the entire on-board connector came with it (and this wasn't even using the included "locking" SATA cables).
Summary: has been working great!! bios updated and running properly. everything is up and running smooth. no complaints. works great with my GTX760 SC 2gb Graphics card and fit Perfectly in my Antec isk600 Case. withour a problem.
Summary: I have been using this for an HTPC (home theater) and have had no issues whatsoever. The small form factor allows for an inconspicuous placement among all other electronics. I love that this motherboard has all the latest technologies so it will be a long time before I will have to upgrade.
Summary: After nine years on a Pentium 4, 1Gb of DDR2 RAM, an ATX mobo using IDE drives in a large case, I decided now was the time for a new PC. After much online research just to familiarize myself with the latest tech, I settled on this board for a SFF build in a Corsair Obsidian 250d case. I'm not a gamer so overclocking was unimportant to me, thus the choice of the H87 chipset. CPU is an i3-4340 and RAM is 8Gb of Crucial Ballistix Sport VLP.
