Summary: I built a machine with this mobo 9 months ago and I have zero complaints. It runs like a champ. I have 16GB RAM and an i3 processor. It was super easy to install. I'm about to buy another one.
Summary: well its been around 6 months with this board and is amazing, no problems so far, i pay call of duty with out video card, is super fast, for the price i cant get something better, i recommend this for everybody, if u are looking for a cheap option go for it, im not a gamer but this board does more than what i need. is just perfect UPDATE 8/11/2013, im still using this board and is just amazing, 0 problems so far, u cant go wrong with this one.
Summary: I've installed this motherboard and a Pentium G860 processor into a budget Windows Home Server build. If I later decide to shift any other duties to the home server, I can just upgrade the processor and this board will still have all the power and connectivity I'll need. I'd also recommend this board for a budget-friendly desktop PC build.
Summary: This is a great little motherboard. I installed it with 16 GB of memory (Corsair XMS3 16GB [2x8GB] DDR3 1333 MHz), an Antec VP-450 power supply, an ATI FirePro v3800 video card, and Core-I3 CPU. The full memory amount was recognized by Windows 7-64. I seems stable, and I've been running it pretty hard with Lightroom and Photoshop. I did not have success in getting the OC Genie to work, however.
Summary: This is the best matx mobo with intel G540, within $100, you get a good intel dual core cpu, motherboard and an HDMI output video card, what more can you expect? Simply add a 4G ram, 500G HDD and a cheap case with PSU, that's a nice and decent office desktop or HTPC.
