2 out of 5 eggsInsufficient power to video?

Pros: Nicely compact board, onboard wifi, LGA 1150 ITX architecture

Cons: I seem to be experiencing the same problem one of the other owners had. After a few months of ownership, I am getting flickering of video output (AMD Display Driver Recovered). It seems to be something wrong w/ the power output in the PCI-Express slot to the video card. I tried it with another video card and it is also happening. I also reinstalled windows, tried different versions of the AMD Catalyst Drivers (yes, I know their history from years ago). It cannot be the drivers. I also previously used the exact same 700 watt psu, video card in my previous asus full-tax motherboard build and never had an issue. I wanted to downgrade to a mini-ITX design to clear up space in my work area and get rid of a bulky full ATX design. Maybe a mistake in retrospect.

5 out of 5 eggsJust What I wanted

Pros: AC WIFI

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This just may be the perfect gaming WIFI mini-ITX board, and I don't care that it's not the gaming version. Roll with a Xeon E3 and be done with it.

4 out of 5 eggsUSB 3 panel pins too delicate

Pros: Lots of features, good price.

Cons: Finishing the setup of my new PC, I just had one thing left to do: plug in the chassis front panel USB 3.0 cable. I centered it carefully over the pins, pushed it down gently but firmly... and met hard resistance. Pulled the connector back out and not one, but two pins were bent. I was able to get one of them to mostly stand back up, but the other snapped off, despite all of my delicate maneuvering.

I guess it's my fault, and maybe I could've been even more careful, but it's not like this was my first rodeo. Ultimately, having my front panel ports be 2.0 and not 3.0 is a minor inconvenience; too minor to justify tearing down the machine I just put together in order to send the mobo off for repair. C'est la vie.

2 out of 5 eggsdoa

Pros: none

Cons: dead

Other Thoughts: I wish that newegg would be able to work with me even though I am outside the window. I spent a couple hours putting it together and then running diagnostics. Be warned: make this your last purchase as even if you're just a couple days on the wrong side of the return period = you have to deal with gigabyte.

1 out of 5 eggsNot working

Pros: On board Wifi seems nice

Cons: The PCI express slot for the video card is not working, I've tried 3 different video cards and the results are the same, any load on the graphics results in stuttering crash and fails. It doesn't seem to be getting enough power. These cards do not require any additional power connectors and must be powered by the slot.

Other Thoughts: I've attempted to contact Gigabyte and requested an RMA, nothing yet.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Mini ITX

Pros: Easy to set up. BIOS is easy to navigate. WiFi performance is outstanding.

Cons: SATA ports too close to PCIe slot. Front panel pins not labeled on board, so I had to open the manual to find where to plug in the power switch and LED cables. Only 1 system fan port available.

Other Thoughts: There's not much to say except that This motherboard is pretty well made. One of the bad things, not about this board, but about the WiFi signal being strong is that my other devices on WiFi seem to get the bad end of the priority list and can't seem to use them on WiFi if my desktop is streaming or downloading a really large file. Also, plug in any SATA ports before putting in anything into the PCIe slot. I put it in the opposite order and it was so hard to plug into SATA ports 0 and 2. Other than that, I'm truly liking this motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsTrick little board

Pros: If you are not planning to overclock, this is one trick little mobo. The board layout is very smart, with most headers and connectors neatly placed at the edge of the board, outboard of the RAM modules (there are 4 SATA connectors inboard of the RAM slots and two outboard. All six SATA ports share the same controller so you can just use the outer two in a two-drive installation without any hassle). The 24-pin mobo connector, front panel headers, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 headers are also inline at the edge of the board. The 4-pin CPU header is at the very "top" edge of the board, and the audio connector is near the very "bottom" edge. This translates to a very efficient setup for cable management and routing, an important consideration when building ITX.

The onboard dual-band Wifi and dual ethernet seems to work a treat. I have had no problems thus far with connection dropouts as some people have mentioned. I have not tested Bluetooth.

The CPU slot is near the "top", with ample room for wide, low-profile coolers between the RAM slots and back panel connectors. This placement also keeps the CPU neatly away from the PCIE connector at the very "bottom" of the board. Really nicely thought layout on the whole.

I used the "classic" BIOS interface for setup, as it's simple and familiar to me. I have not used the UEFI interface at all yet, but will play with it going forward. My Rev. 1.0 board shipped with BIOS version F3 (Late August 2014).

Likewise, I have not played with any of the included Gigabyte software apps, but plan to in the future.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Perfect board for my new Mini ITX HTPC/Steambox build. Installation in a Coolermaster Elite 130 case was smooth and relatively painless.

4 out of 5 eggsSmall bluetooth problem, small board

Pros: It is tiny and has all the major components of the other boards. Plenty of USB 3.0.

Cons: Bluetooth adapter or card was a bit sporadic. Sometimes I had to uninstall and re-install the bluetooth driver to get it to work. As of the past week I have not had another problem though(I just jinxed it...)

Other Thoughts: My RAM will not go to the advertised speed. I assume it is RAM related problem, but it is possible the BIOS is a bit strange.
