5 out of 5 eggsExactly how I wanted to start off an entry level PC build

1 out of 5 eggsdont bother

Pros: Compact. At least it occasionally posted.

Cons: Where to begin? It was problematic right out of the box. I had issues getting it to recognize ram, the video card, the hdd, even the monitor at times. I repeatedly tested each part, and after numerous posting and just general stability issues, i gave up. Due to the low price i payed for this item, and how unreliable it was, i decided not to bother with an RMA to avoid getting back what might be an equally frustrating hunk of junk and just bought a new motherboard somewhere else. Avoid this thing, save yourself the time,money and effort. I nailed it to my wall as a reminder to myself to never go cheap on a motherboard again.

Other Thoughts: Although i do realize some items arent directly from newegg, it is worth mentioning that working in the customer service industry has taught me something over the years. If you sell an inferior product, you WILL lose customers and therefore profit in the long run if you continue to sell that product.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for HTPC

Pros: - So far, it seems to be the usual Gigabyte quality
- Slightly smaller dimensions for a micro-ATX board, at least compared to the Zotac micro-ATX board it replaced. Not at all a problem for fitting into my nMEDIAPC 1000B HTPC case -- even better actually to have some room freed up.

Cons: - None so far.

Other Thoughts: - Note that this is a fairly minimalist mobo as far as micro-ATX boards go. For example, only two memory slots.
Using with:
- AMD A6 6400K CPU.
- Noctua NH-L9a CPU cooler.
- nMEDIA PC 1000B HTPC case.
- HyperX 8GB KHX1600C9D3LK2/8GX memory
