Summary: My search for a motherboard / cpu combo for a windows 8 compatible upgrade led me to this choice from the recommendation of an online system builder forum. I believe for the price , this model gives exceptional performance and has many great features that are real world useable . It is easily mounted in a new case or an old mATX case as I have done. With just a little work , you can get this board running fast .
Summary: This was perfectly priced (I got it for around $75) for a server build that I wanted to do. Since I am not gaming with it, then I don't need all the extra stuff. I put a Xeon E3 1275-V3 in it for the CPU and it works great! I've got Corsair XMS RAM and even a Cooler Master T4 CPU cooler in it. (The T4 was kind of a tight fit, but I made it work). I put this in a Cooler Master N200 and it fits very nicely.
Summary: Had the old family PC so decided to do a cheap upgrade of the system when the original motherboard fried itself. Got this motherboard and G3220 Pentium. Got everything installed and things worked fairly well. There were some idiosyncrasies with the motherboard settings but nothing too bad. But after getting everything set up, Windows reinstalled, and everyone's accounts set up again, the sound stopped working.
Summary: Great small board. Fit into my mini tower case (Cooler Master: N200). My configuration is i5 4570 + GTX 770. If you do not do over clock and SLI, I think there is no need to buy more expensive MB.
Summary: My CPU works very fine, so fast excellent performance with ssd and all I recommend this MOBO is micro ATX but run very fine in performance, BIOS normal and runs very fine Excellent benchmark peformance i don't have bad notice about this MOBO is work fine i recommend this MOBO with eye closed :)
Summary: Runs great, three system fan headers and a CPU fan header, so plenty of fans to hook up for a mid range build. No issues at all, came with the 2nd to latest BIOS, which is nice. The USB 3.0 header is nice, with quite a few 2.0 headers. No problems whatsoever, I recommend this to anyone building a budget mid range Intel build.
