Inexpensive no frills motherboard that just works.

  • Summary: Pro: If you are not big into overclocking or having RAID setups in your computer, then this is a pretty decent board. It has just enough features that would satisfy most and the price is right Con: The ONLY BIGGEST complaint I have with this board is the lack of fan headers. Seriously? 1 CPU and 1 case fan?? Most M-ATX case have a front can and a rear fan for exhaust. I would of liked to see at least one more fan header.

working great...NOT a review that has nothing to do with the buyers lack of common sense^^^^^

  • Summary: I purchased this board as it had the chipsets I needed to do an xpenology build for a server. It is working beautifully. perfect price to performance ratio. I can saturate my T1000 eithernet with the built in NIC and it had enough sata3(6gig) ports for me to run a decent raid 10 on 4 WD drives. I'm certain not everyone would buy this for my specific purpose, but for what I am doing, it is a great board, low power consumption and it's expandable which is what I needed.

could be better

  • Summary: for some strange reason I did not read what this motherboard features properly and did not realize that it only has 2 slots for ram and can only go up to 16 gb of ram. That's what sucks about this motherboard is I can't add my other ram sticks to it, but putting that aside it does a very good job. One should note is that it comes with the disk to install and fix a bunch of driver updates and two wires you attache your internal harddrive and whatever to your motherboard.

  • Summary: Compact. It is good. But there is no IDE port, SATA only. So I had to convert one from SATA.

Perfect(Almost)

  • Summary: I used this board for my gaming build and I adore it. The only thing I would warn people about, which I should have known, really, is that there is only 1 SYS_FAN header. If you have a case that has 2 SYS_FAN fans, then you can easily purchase a system fan splitter for about £3.50.

Decent board for a great price

mirko, Amazon

  • Summary: Using this for an Ubuntu Server build and all hardware I have tested works fine. Have found the board to be very stable over the last few months. Bios is quite nice too. Using this board with an i3-4330 Haswell CPU and an efficient power supply is only using 27 watts as measured at the wall plug. Just note that this is a slightly smaller version of the micro atx board which might be useful to know depending on your build.
