Summary: I have purchased 2 of these this year. all of them have been excellent. It works as advertised, easy to install, easy to setup and very good price too. The computer is in a very rugged environment but the motherboard has stood up to the challenge.
Very good motherboard, but only has 2 fan headers. Be careful with your planning!

Summary: This motherboard is fantastic quality, but keep in mind that there are only 2 fan headers (1 cpu header, and 1 chassis header). I did not plan well for this and experienced some slight delays/headaches in getting my build fully functional. Other than that, the motherboard has worked extremely well.
Summary: Good ITX board. The only thing to watch out for is that the Wi-Fi will not work automatically for Linux. I read somewhere that you could do some type of mod, replacing the on-board module but it's best just to buy a Alfa USB Wi-Fi and you're on your way.
Summary: Great motherboard. Small and fits in any smaller case. Lets give cons first 1. "Surround" - have to jump through hoops to get 5.1 surround enabled, even with included drivers. 2.1 is fine out of the box. 2.
Summary: I'm pretty happy with the ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe. It's tiny, but it's a workhorse. Good overclocking on my 3570K (with Cooler Master Seidon 120M). This is paired with 2 WD Black HDDs, DVD drive, GTX 770 and Cooler Master Elite 130 case. Range with the built-in wifi is pretty good.
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.
Summary: Pros: tiny and has everything I might want on board. Cons: Wish there was another choice in color of antenna. The white just doesn't go with the black case it is mounted in. I'll probably try spray painting them black.
Summary: I first bought the ASrock version of this board but it arrived defective so I returned it and bought this. I'm not using any of the fancy features of this board such as overclocking so I can't speak to that. However the breadth of ports and features available on such a small board is impressive.
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...
