Summary: DQ77KB is the most full-featured Thin Mini ITX motherboard for Ivy Bridge procs and since none exist for Haswells as of now, this and one from Gigabyte are pretty much the only choices if you want to build your own AIO, or simply an ultra small PC (for example using Silverstone Petit PT13B).
Summary: The board is very good and works great for business requirement, However after 4 months only the board has failed without any prior error. It just suddenly turned off and never was able to turn on again.
Summary: I used to have 20 1u rack mount servers. These servers drew over 30 amps, and were loud and a pain in the rear to service. I replaced all those with 10 of these. I hang these vertically inside the rack without any chassis. The only moving part is the CPU fan, which does not spin furiously. A bit of velcro holds the SSDs. I use less than 10 amps now and do not need the rack internet controlled power switch or the internet controlled KVM anymore.
Summary: I upgraded my Intel D2500CCE motherboard because the Atom cpu could not handle pfsense x64 with snort when torrenting. The cpu would jump to 70% utilization. I picked up this board because I have a spare Intel i3-2100 laying around and needed the cpu horsepower to handle pfsense + snort when torrenting. I put this board in a m350 case and it looks great.
Summary: It's running debian GNU/Linux at 9 watts and only reaches 30W on full load when compiling using all cores. Case: Akasa Euler (don't install backplate) PSU: Cooler Master NA 90W (black plug) CPU: Intel i3-3220T RAM: 16GB Corsair Vengeance SSD: Intel X25-M 160GB
Summary: I got this mobo, i5-3330, 1.35V RAM. With a dell laptop power adapter and laptop hard drives(spun down) it idles at 10W (screen unplugged)! I was pretty happy with 17W idle, but after some bios + software tweaking idle power usage dropped to 10W. This mobo allows one to build PCs that are more efficient than various Atom, E350, etc options. With a Cooler Master Hyper TX3 - CPU Cooler with 3 Direct Contact Heat Pipes (RR-910-HTX3-G1) I can't hear the system run.
Summary: To all the people who posted negative reviews, maybe they should do their homework first instead of complaining about the product. I put mine together and it's running awesome, super slim profile, completely silent, low power, and really powerful. The case is only 2 inches tall! And The PSU is only 90W. Seems like the part hardest to find is the PSU.
Summary: Using in the In-Win K-1 case with Asus 22" monitor. Cpu is i-3 2125 with Intel low-prifile cooler and have 16Gb DDR 3 1600 , 204 pin RAM; Corsair Force GT 120gb SSD with Win 7. This rocks!! Oh and PSU is a 180 watt brick. I am SO glad that I read what this board requires and what it is capable of before just buying it.
First one was defective, second worked for less than a year, trying third...

Summary: Update: The board I had was completely defective, it took almost a month but I managed to RMA it through Intel. The new board works fine with the exact same parts, so the doubters were wrong. After having used it for awhile, I would give it 4/5 stars. Its a nice board for specific uses, but it still has its quirks. Theres really nothing else like it, which is a shame because I'd love for some other board vendors to give this form factor a shot with different features.
