Summary: I got this mb on April, and just after 4 months the mb died, no POST, indicator light all normal, fan spin, and that's it. I send the board to ASUS RMA center, bubble wrapped whole board, card board, canadapost express mail, and ASUS told me several pins bend. They asked me 140 dollar (+I spend 30 on mailing it back), which almost the price of buying a new one.
Summary: To much trouble to configurate bios to OC with 3770k also use igpu and gtx570 doesnt work... USB 3.0 front panel trouble The clear cmos doesnt appear work.... Try to start windows with PCIE as primary card (with hdmi in my gtx570) no video sometimes ... Back to hdmi in igpu no video ( ramdon times) To much other problems Very frustrating I sold my z77 ud3h to migrate to this Asus card but really bad mistake...
Summary: I was building a low heat compact system to replace my much older loud gaming PC. this mobo paired with a i7-3770k with the stock fan is perfectly silent and crushes any game i can throw at it! the auto-overclocking feature on this motherboard is quit nice if not a little timid... but it will do the job perfectly if you let it! only two DIMMS might have been a challenge, but thankfully I installed some 8GB Crucial Ballisitx DIMMs to meet my memory needs.
Summary: I purchased this to go into a portable gaming rig (Bitfenix Prodigy case). Asus has managed to pack quite a bit onto this extremely small form factor. Most importantly, the CPU socket is set more or less in the center of the board, rather than right up against the PCI-E slot, meaning this board can fit some of the largest aftermarket coolers, including the Noctua NH-D14 and the Phanteks PC-TH14 series.
Summary: Used this in a Bitfenix Prodigy case. Pros: The layout of the board is nice, the position of the CPU slot gave enough room for a Cooler Master Hyper EVO (although I had to use low profile RAM). Built-in Wifi has better range than I was expecting. Cons: The HD audio connector is right infront of the GPU slot (meaning the graphics card goes over the connection) so I couldn't plug in the extra audio connectors on the side panel of the prodigy case. Not a big deal.
Summary: This is the best I could find to build my Home Theater Personal Computer (HTPC) with 8GB RAM and i5 CPU I have at home and sell here on Amazon. The 1000 Gb LAN with built in WiFi can be configured to push a WiFi Hotspot, 4 USB 2.0 Ports, 3 USB 3.0/UASP, 2 eSATA, BIOS Flashback, WIDI (Stream your desktop to Flatscreen), HDMI, DVI and Displayport. So awesome I could go on and on.
Summary: Asus always deliver, this Mini ITX board is in a small case with i5 Ivy Bridge running Win7 Pro and has an SSD and 2 X 2.5" drives for data inside, it's a powerful, quiet, low-power usage unit that is easily moved around. I like that Wi-i & Bluetooth are on the MB too, just get some better antenna - the supplied ones are a fiddle. I don't need to overclock, but this board will do all that if you want.
Summary: I bought this for my first computer build and it worked great. The only con that I've found is that the case audio header is right next to the pcie slot, so if you have a dual slot graphics card (like I do) you can't use the front panel audio connectors. But all in all a great buy, especially for the built in wifi and bluetooth.
