Summary: First off, I hav built many full scale kick your butt computers. This was my first HTPC build, I did the research and decided to go with this motherboard due to the HDMI and SPDIF hook ups. Everything went flawless..The only complaint if any I have is the Blu-Ray wont work..Dont know if it is limitations with memory(4g) or video.
Summary: Excelente tarjeta, ya esta instalada y funcionando perfectamente. Los tiempos de entrega muy buenos. Recomiendo este producto al 100%. El transporte a Venezuela fue rapido y eficiente, desde Amazon - Miami...
Summary: Used this motherboard for my first HTPC. Really happy with the end result so far. Booted up the first time with no issues. Pros: Built in video chip is sufficient to play movies at 1080p so no additional video card is required if that's all you're going to use it for. 6 sata ports HDMI outputs both video and audio. Some boards have HDMI but have issues this one works.
Summary: Have owned ASUS motherboards before. Think they do an excellent job. This board is fast and can handle blueray movies no problem. It also has an IDE connection so older drives may still be used. Was surprised by first screen at bootup for internet connection without going to OS. I'm really happy with performance so far. No problems.
Summary: This is a nice board for not-so-much money. It has all the I/O ports and options I wanted, plus a BIOS that lets you tune everything in sight. You can download the manual in .PDF form and use that information to vet memory choices and such. The construction seems solid, with even a flair to decorative in the heat sink design. I'm happy with this board for my application.
