Summary: I got this motherboard since there were hardly any other Mini-ITX motherboard that was capable of accepting the new AMD A10-7850K processor. I've noticed that system boot up with this motherboard is slower than I would like even with the latest Samsung EVO 850 Pro SSD, while my laptop boots up under three seconds with a cheap Crucial SSD.
Summary: very nice board, i have it with a A10 7850K I did not have to do any bios update (I was afraid the revision would be old after reading a couple of reviews). Up until now the unit is working like a charm.

Summary: Fits with room to spare for a big opera singer in my http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008J0ZODQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 mansion of a case. Despite my low profile fan the ram fits fine.

Summary: Overall, great board for overclocked AMD HTPC builds with a few quirks Cons: - Bios may need to be updated if using Kaveri APUs (Richland/Trinity should work fine out of the box) - Gigabyte EasyTune Software poor interface and feels bloated - FM2 Socket is very close to the PCI-E slot, which limits cooler choice. I had no problems with sealed AIO water coolers - no eSATA ports Pros: - onboard Intel Dual Band AC 7260 WiFi (2.4GHz/5GHz) makes it ideal for HTPCs.
Summary: Works well with gaming, and overclocking. put an A8-5600k and overclocked it with an corsair H_60. The best part is that they used AC Wireless. and the antenna has a magnet and adjustable head. fits in a CM elite 130 just right.
Summary: I didn't read the reviews claiming that this board didn't support the A10-7850k until after it shipped. I was very pleased to find that the board had been updated and everything worked on the first boot attempt. Pros: A10-7850k support Wifi/bluetooth Cons: None so far. I would recommend this motherboard to anyone looking for a small build to pair with an A10 who needs wifi OTB. I built this thing as a Steambox, and so far it hasn't disappointed.
Summary: If you are trying to build a mini-itx machine like I did then this is the board you want. Perfect for my DIY brand case. Fit perfectly, can fit an A10 processor in it for speed, I've got 16gb of RAM and an MSI Graphics Card N760 2GD5/OC ITX. I would highly recommend getting that graphics card with this board because they work great together. Plus the built in wifi/bluetooth is great. Really fast and stops you from having to buy an adapter.
Summary: Unlike other reviewers, I fortunately had none of the issues with CPU incompatibilities. I bought three of these for PCs for my kids. All three ran exactly as they should. I paired them with AMD A10-6800K CPUs, which run great with the board. The only gripe I have, and it's not worth a star, is that the temperature monitoring seems a few degrees off. A very accurate temp sensor I've used shows internal case temps 4C lower than the onboard sensor reports.
