Summary: Used this board for a budget HTPC build. I could get no display out of the VGA or HDMI ports on multiple monitors/TV's. Contacted technical support for further troubleshooting and followed their advice and still not work. Sending back for a refund.

Summary: Using this as the mobo for an Ubuntu NAS I built to stream content to Plex clients, host backups for two Apple laptops, and possibly serve as extra storage in the future. The board is good, and it has a nice interface for the BIOS.
Summary: Used this board a small htpc and it performs much better than I anticipated. With 4gb ram, intel celeron processor and a 60gb ssd, it outperforms my old core 2 quad htpc which has an asus rampage formula board that was far more expensive.
