Summary: The only ITX board for Ivybridge that has 6 sata ports. Why would I want a ITX board with 6 sata ports? Because this works wonderfully as a 6 drive NAS!! I used this with the Lian Li PCQ25B with 6x 2tb drives running NAS4FREE. Awesome!
Summary: This is a great, low cost Mobo. All components and interfaces work perfectly. This unit fits the 2nd/3rd gen. 1155 socket CPU's. It will not fit the 4th gen. 1150 sockets so care in ordering a CPU that will fit. The American Megatrends UEFI BIOS has many features and functions. I have since ordered a second Asus, Z87I-Deluxe LGA 1150 Intel Z87 Mini ITX MoBo. That unit is a bit more $, supports WiFi and was equally impressed with quality.
Summary: This is plain and simply a great mini-itx motherboard! Lots of SATA ports, good layout, easy to use. Running it in a media server with an I3 processor. So far 2 months, not a glitch. Recommended.
Summary: Overall, I've had no issues with the board. I used it to build a small home server. I was looking for a small board with a large number of SATA slots and this fit the bill. I had no issues working on the board and it booted up the first time. It's been running for several months now without an issue. For the price, this is probably one of the best boards out there if you want a lot of drives.
Summary: Bought it. Smallest form factor there is for an i5. Lots of Sata. Spot for a hefty video card (I currently am using the Nvidia 550ti), and keeps up swiftly on games like Batman Arkham City. Great purchase.
Summary: I had a similar motherboard from a competitor that just wasn't quite up to par. I purchased this and it met all of my needs. Every little advertised thing worked on it, instantly. For me it's knowing everything is working that makes using a product like this worthwhile. Even the front audio jack automatically mutes the speakers if you want. I realize that's not only a feature that this motherboard offers, but I mean this motherboard just does everything right.
Summary: This is a great little board. If you're building an HTPC, it's got more horsepower than you'll need and 6 sata connections. With Intel graphics on-board, you don't even need a video card. I've had this board for several months now and it booted up the first time without error. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a small board.
