Summary: I am not giving up on this board yet. However, it appears that the only other reviewer, for this mobo, may have had the same issue and figured out how to resolve the crash issue. I'm also using windows 7 64bit and having the system reboot when I try to use it as a media server.
A sturdy and simple board. Perfect for building a somewhat portable workstation that is surprisingly powerful!

Summary: i do love this board. It is perfect for running 4 drives and 16 gigs of ram in a small box. It is slightly limited for overclocking [H77 rather than the more featured Z77], but does come with a handy windows application for boosting those settings that may be changed.
Summary: Ten minutes after I placed the order, I decided to cancel it. However, was not able do it since, according to the seller, the order was already on the truck in Pennsylvania ready to be delivered in New Jersey. It is hard to believe the order was on the truck less than 10 minutes after I submit it.
Summary: One of the biggest reasons I got this one is because it had built in wifi, which I was worried about because I thought it would be slow, but it turned out really nice. It plays all online games without noticeable differences, so I can move my desktop around anywhere without connecting a bunch of...
Summary: If you're building an intel mini-itx system, this is the only board I would consider. All modern features, like USB 3.0 and SATA3 are present, as well as very strong built in wifi and bluetooth functionality. It works with the latest intel i3, i5, and i7 processors and DDR3 ram.
Summary: One of the best motherboards ever made, and really breathes new life into the ITX profile. My only disappointment is that it lacks a TPM socket that Gigabyte was known to be the one to count on for including a TPM. Yeah, it has UEFI, great, but I'd prefer SO-DIMMs and a TPM slot.
Summary: Supports 16GB of RAM, works perfectly under Windows 7, Windows 8, Linux (Fedora 17 detects all hardware and works great for me), and apparently is a great choice if you ever want to try making a Hackintosh.
