4 out of 5 eggsGood Motherboard

Pros: Small enough MB to fit in a large case to allow for great cooling airflow.

Cons: 1. Wish it had another PCI slot.
2. Placement of the SATA 1 and 2 ports should have been thought out better. When you place a graphics card on the motherboard it covers these ports. You need to buy a straight to left angle SATA III cable to allow use of these two ports. Regular cables wont work.

Other Thoughts: Yes if you can overcome the design flaws listed above.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the price!

Pros: Easy to install, booklet comes with pin out diagram to show where to plug the case in.
Very small
PCI Express 3.0 x 16 on a budget

Cons: For me - too small (see other)

Other Thoughts: A thing to consider, I have a hyper 212 evo cooler, and a nvida GTX 480 with a zalman cooler attached to it.. It is worth mentioning that the PCI Express port is too close for this alignment, you have to turn the hyper 212 evo like this -- instead of | if that make sense. I am now going to have to mod the case to get the cooler to sit right.

Also the zalman cooler covers two of the sata ports leaving only two. (Why isn't turning the sata port on the side a "norm"?) I may be able to get a L shaped connector and remedy at least one port though.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price! :)

Pros: -CHEAP!
-Simple Bios
- Light Overclocking. I WOULD NOT overclock your CPU heavily on this motherboard. The power phases are only good enough for light overclocking. Maybe medium overclocking if you get some aftermarket heat sinks for the VRMS/Chokes
-6 USB ports (only USB 2.0, but they are still there)
-Black (no cheap green)
- Solid State Capacitors
- 2 Case fan headers (One 4 pin, and one 3 pin)

Cons: - Top SATA ports are too close to the PCIE x16 slot. Regular SATA cables will get in the way of a graphics card fan. You must a 90 degree connector on SATA port 2 which would render SATA port 1 useless. They do make low profile/super slim SATA cables which may fix this problem though.
- Some Bloatware on Driver installation disc.

Other Thoughts: - Don't let the 4 pin CPU power connector scare you off. If you are using this board, as I said before, at most you will be doing light overclocking. A 4 pin CPU connector can supply 192 Watts. An i7-3770K will use 166 Watts under full load at stock speeds so you still have a bit of room.
- RAM will run at 1333Mhz at max. That is the max speed for a Sandy Bridge processor, but an Ivy Bridge processor can utilize RAM at 1600Mhz. I am sure you can figure out how to overclock the RAM/CPU to accept 1600Mhz though. Also your CAS latency will be lower at a lower clock speed so it won't be a hit in performance regardless.

5 out of 5 eggsWorking Perfect.

Pros: I paired this Motherboard up with an Intel Core i3-2120, and Kingston KVR1333D3N9/2G X2. I was able to watch HD movies from Youtube on this with no issues. So this works perfect for my budget build.

Cons: No SATA III.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard for a Good Price

Pros: -Plenty of room on the PCI-E slot (I fit an r9 390 no problem)
-Clean BIOS, nothing fancy but it's simple and it works
-Fantastic price

Cons: -No HDMI port. This is pretty much standard now and I'm a bit disappointed this one doesn't have one.
-Weird fan control. I'm not sure if this is just me, or a regular issue, but when I installed mine my CPU fan spun at 4900 rpm. It sounded like a loud vacuum and scared the heck out of me. It was a simple enough fix though: just go into the BIOS and lower fan speeds. After that no problem.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: Have had this board for over a year. Never had a problem with it. Bought it originally due to ratings and specs versus cost. Very happy I chose it. I have upgraded RAM on it (had several different kinds over time with no compatibility issues), gone through several drives (had every single SATA port used, along with nearly all USB ports, all at once), etc. and never a hiccup.

Cons: None.

4 out of 5 eggsSimple, cost-effective solution for micro-ATX builds

Pros: I bought this motherboard to put together a cheap micro-ATX build based off of a Sandy Bridge i5 2400S processor I had lying around. The small form factor is nice, limited capability (no USB 3.0/1, 2 DIMM slots) but great for a cheaper, older generation build. For $50 it is a great purchase.

There is also spacing between the two PCI slots so you can fit in larger graphics processing units which is definitely a nice touch.

Cons: Only two case fan controllers on the board, if you are going to have more than two fans besides your CPU's cooler, I would recommend buying a fan splitter.

Other Thoughts: Good purchase for $50. High quality component, limited functionality and a bit older generation but expected with this product. Overall I would recommend this if you are pairing with an Ivy-Bridge or older CPU.

5 out of 5 eggsMSI H61M-P31/W8 LGA 1155 Intel H61

Pros: Super cheap for a LGA 1155 microATX board
Two fan headers
MSI reliability

Cons: No USB 3
No Hdmi

Other Thoughts: This is a nice little board. I had a LGA 1155 i5 laying around and wanted build a mini pc to put behind a entertainment stand. This worked perfect for me. Slapped in 2-4gb sticks of ram, SSD for the boot drive and a 500gb Spinner for storage. It has descent BIOS. It doesn't have USB 3, not a huge deal for me, I mostly stream or copy over my network. It also doesn't have HDMI, also not a big deal for me, I threw in a 7770 card that had HDMI to hook to the TV. Depending on what you need, you really can't bet this for the price.
