Good mobo

Nate B., Newegg
29 March 2014
  • Summary: This is a very general mobo. I use it as a gaming/video editing build. Since it is cheap and entry level, there isn't room for many upgrades. There are only 2 Sata slots so I will probably use both for storage instead of 1 storage and 1 optical drive.
  • Pros: Has USB 3.0 connectivity for the back panel IO. Cheap. Good placement of inputs. Works as advertised with my Intel Xeon E3 1270.
  • Cons: No USB 3.0 inputs for front panel headers, but at least it came with USB 3.0 inputs on the back panel IO.

Stable good Board

David A., Newegg
9 December 2013
  • Summary: Cant go wrong with this board even has an IDE mode in case things arent recognized in the operating system your installing.
  • Pros: Works well using I-5 with no built in video, Nvidia card. Its a real Stable board , everything works USB 3 Esata, Sata, HDMI, VGA
  • Cons: It has BIOS text screen so if you were looking for fancy UEFI bios screen its not there. I tried to install Windows 7 and 8 (the beta test version) with a GPT drive, but they wouldnt take. (worked fine with MBR drive) I thought that it was possible with UEFI but I was just experimenting, and Im not sure if Im right. Other than that I really like the board, I have two of them

My own fault, but not with the times

ADH77, Amazon
22 September 2013
  • Summary: This board worked, but was not a good value. Unfortunately, (and it's my own fault) I didn't realize it only had two SATA headers internally and it did not have an internal 30 pin USB3 header. So, 1 SSD + 1 HDD + 1 Burner=no happy times. You have to add a card either way. Either to add more ports for SATA or for USB. (Or use the USB to 30 pin adapter outside the case.

  • Summary: Installed this into a Silverstone Tek SG07B case. Fit perfectly. Nice layout. Nice large heatsinks to help with cooling when installed in small cases such as that I put it in.

Great board, not the most modern

Spence, Amazon
16 May 2013
  • Summary: This is a great little mini-itx board, would be good for a hackintosh. There are some irritating limitations though. This board only has 2 SATA plugs, so you are limited to 2 devices. This means one hard drive and one optical drive, or two hard drives and no optical drive. I found this didn't work for my computer plans, but if you do not find that limiting this board should work great.

PCI Card Issues

tk, Amazon
23 March 2013
  • Summary: I'm building a bunch of systems with avertv cards in the PCI Express slot and standardized on this motherboard due to price and feature set. I've had more issues that can be believed. From the PCI slot seemingly turning off to it simply blacking out. I tried swapping avertv cards and even other motherboards. I tried reloading windows and nothing seems to work. All drivers are updated and the only thing installed is avertv application and driver and windows 7.
