Summary: I bought this motherboard for a new computer I was building for my wife. She is not likely to put too many demands on it and so I went for a cheap but reliable make. It's been in use for three months and there have been no problems. Assembly gave no problems at all. Didn't need any expansion cards as everything, including graphics and audio, is included. I put it into a Fractal Design Core 1000 Series Micro ATX case but I guess it would fit into an even smaller one.
Very happy with the performance of this cheap motherboard

Summary: I bought this as a replacement for a dead ABit AN8-32X motherboard on my children's computer (one of my old cast-offs), and coupled it with an Intel Core i3 3220 CPU and 8 GB of Crucial DDR3 PC3-12800 RAM (2x 4 GB sticks). Putting that in the carcass of the dead machine (which was running Fedora Linux) resurrected it and resulted in a very respectable machine for an upgrade cost of under £200.
Summary: An excellent compact motherboard at a very good price. These boards are just as good as the more expensive series and are more than half the price. This board can provide the basis for a good cheap pc.
Summary: Only giving this motherboard 3 stars, not because it's bad but because it's 'ok' nice and easy to setup with all the ports and plugs in sensible positions. My only grievance is that for all it can take RAM higher than 1600Mhz it doesn't seem to like it, I've not been able to clock my RAM which is rated as 2133 to anything over 1600, this could be down to my own incompetence and lack luster care to persist at achieving higher RAM speed but it was something I noticed.
