Summary: Great bang for the buck as this board has more than enough power for expansion and future capacity. I've started out with an i3 and 8 GB of Kingston DDR3 RAM...runs smoothly so far for the past 3 months. I really like that it has dual display at the back for a dual monitor set up on an mITX system.
Pros: Great mITX board
Cons: Wish it had a USB 3.0 header for front USB ports on case

Summary: I got this mainboard to build my HTPC. Has all the i/o ports that I wanted, and is working stable for the time being. Its great that this board and several others, offer a PCI -E slot for upgraded graphics card. Its a good buy and a good price.
Summary: I assembled my computer with this motherboard and everything was wired up correctly. i went to turn my computer on and it didnt turn on. when this package arrived i noticed some marks on some of bits of the motherboard.
Summary: ITX MB is normally cost more than the MATX and ATX MBs, but it enable you can install it into very small case which suit for a HTPC in the bedroom or the living room. Nice BIOS interface and give you many settings allow you to change for overclocking etc,.
Summary: Overall a great performer for a very reasonable price. BIOS is great giving you full mouse and keyboard control over every aspect of the system including fan speeds. In summary the board provides all the necessary features making it a great for either a mid-high performance PC or media center PC.
Summary: This motherboard is tiny, as a result there's not much on it. If up to date is your ideal, this may be your next motherboard. There is a PCIe 16 graphics card socket. There are USB connectors, two that connect to the case giving four USB 2.0 connectors there, four 2.0 on the backplane and two 3.0...
