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.
