Great no frills and rock solid 1155 mobo

Fabián Gómez, Amazon
4 June 2014
  • Summary: I do love 1155 platform because you don't really miss anything from newer sockets and are able to buy powerful rigs at a much lower price. This is a no-frills motherboard and it works perfectly. I've paired it to a i5 2500T, two sticks of 4GB Kingston low profile RAM, a Gelid Solutions Slim Silence i-Plus, a Corsair Force GS 128 GB SSD, and a low profile Galaxy 750Ti slim.

Nice motherboard, wish it had USB 3 but who cares for the price

TriOptimum, Amazon
24 February 2014
  • Summary: Cheapest MicroATX LGA1155 motherboard available when I built this system, no problem using a Intel Pentium 2 LGA 1155 Processor BX80637G2030 (Ivy Bridge) out of the box without needing a bios update. If you get an older stock or used one, note that supposedly some of them need a bios update (requiring you to send it in or have a Sandy Bridge LGA1155 chip lying around) to run Ivy Bridge processors, but mine didn't.

You know, there's not much to say, as long as it worked fine. It does!

Ganbold, Amazon
30 November 2013
  • Summary: Considering price, best motherboard investment! Setting up my PC was no trouble. Just in case, some of you might interest in what was assembled, here my rig: - Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced case - Intel Pentium G860 - Kingston ValueRAM 2x4GB - 1TB HDD - Radeon HD6870 2GB graphics - Logisys 550W PSU Only downside: no USB 3.0 (not a deal breaker to me though)

  • Cons: Only SATA 2, SATA 3 would be nice for SSD.

Lean!

11 September 2013
  • Summary: Does what is intended. Very lean and basic but fast enough. PCI-E perfect to add a good graphics card in a low budget mini itx build.

Good little mobo.

Matthew T., Newegg
23 August 2013
  • Summary: I use it in a small game server build and I'm pleased with the results. Drop a Ivy bridge i3 in and install Linux, this becomes a remarkably powerful board.
  • Pros: Small form factor and low price. Works great in a HTPC case only designed to house 1 or 2 drives.
  • Cons: If you are using this as a HTPC or personal server? No cons really, it works well. If you are using it for anything else, get something bigger.

Does everything for me (own 6)

Bryan S., Newegg
15 August 2013
  • Summary: I have no less than a half-dozen (6) of these units now with an i5-2400, Pentium G860 and even the new IvyBridge Pentium G2130. They are fine, upper-mid end gaming systems running Windows 7. They are Linux Filers for RHEL iSCSI and RHS (Gluster). They are Linux Compute Nodes for RHEV-H and RHOS Nova (OpenStack).
  • Pros: - Inexpensive cost, but works with any OS - Takes IvyBridge CPU with updated BIOS/uEFI - LGA-1155 generation, so 16GiB support (2x8GiB)
  • Cons: - Not the H67S (which is very hard to find now) - Only two (2) SATA ports -- not a loss for most Mini-ITX applications - Standard Intel cripple of low-cost chipsets (don't expect SATA-3, USB-3)

In an ITX gaming build

Tony V., Amazon
14 March 2013
  • Summary: This motherboard is a great bang for the buck! It has the DDR3, Core i3 support, and PCI Express x16 that I was looking for. I bought this to be part of a low-power ITX gaming PC build for my little brother who games all day every day so he would use up A LOT of wattage (reason for the ITX build). It's been running around 8 hours each day every day with constant use for 3 months now and there have been no problems as of yet.
