Summary: The only issue is no USB 3.0. I bought it to build an htpc and it does the job nicely and without issues. If you're installing WHS 2008 R2, you'll need to find some drivers but that's just an annoying 15 minutes. The board with the 3770k is very, very fast and serves multiple media devices without a hiccup. Highly recommend for htpc applications.
Summary: I purchased this item in October 2011 to build a new PC. It has been exactly two years since I purchased this motherboard and it works flawlessly. I haven't had ANY problems and I am beyond pleased with this motherboard.
Summary: I purchased 10+ boards and more than half were damaged. When you pulled CPU cover the pins were bent from the get go. I am using these boards out there for the gaming industry and this batch must of had a mad employee.
Summary: Bought this and built an i5 3rd gen system. I get it all hooked up and turned on. No video at first I thought it was a problem with the onboard video until I realized the 3rd gen i5 I had ordered did not support onboard graphics. Would have saved myself a lot of time and headache if I had RTFM.
Summary: I have had this motherboard working in a HTPC for about a year now. I am completely happy with the way this board has preformed for me. I am running windows 7, along with Windows Media Center, and a Hauppauge tuner card. It was easy to install, set up, and it does all I ask it to do. Asus is the only MOBO that I trust.
Summary: These motherboards work almost too well. They seem to be capable of running operating systems that were installed on completely separate systems. Take the hours you spent trouble shooting those other motherboards and go play some Battlefield or Tombraider you deserve it.
Summary: i have no complaints whatsoever about this board. it was my first mini itx build. went flawlessly. i put an i3 in it with 4gb of ram and a solid state drive and the thing is like little wonder. performs like champion and emits little, to no heat. technology is amazing.
