5 out of 5 eggsits ASUS, nuff said

Pros: Good solid board for something so small. Was purchased to replace another brand that failed out of the box. Great tech support from ASUS when I had an issue. works works works. fits in my custom install. Running completely fanless, BIOS is easy to work with and understand. once setup it boots incredibly fast. SAndy Bridge and Ivy Bridge support without updating the BIOS.

Cons: Big miss is its SATA2 connection, should have SATA3, and no usb 3.0 header on the board.Not the end of te world since its a custom build...also dont like the fact that there are only four sata connections instead of 6, more is better.

Other Thoughts: Ive yet to have an ASUS product fail me and so for they are keeping up the good work, even in such a space constrained board. no wireless or BT installed.The system is as follows,
This motherboard
16gig corsair CMS3
128gig Plextor M6e boot drive m.2 format
2 500gig samsung ssd m.s format
500 watt flex atx power supply
intel i7 2600k processor
Zalman fx70 fanless heatsink
LG Blu Ray burner
LG Lightscribe DVD burner.
Due to space constraints the optical drives are in an external esata 2 bay tower.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Layout

Pros: Unknown since cannot build without causing short on system.

Cons: CPU cooler layout terrible. The transistors on the bottom of the board interfere with proper mounting of the CPU cooler bracket. The brackets for 3 different coolers sit on top of the transistors and solder points for 2 of the holes. This leaves the bracket loose and unstable.

Other Thoughts: Being my first Mini ITX build this could be me, but I have tried 3 different coolers including a liquid cooler that will not mount properly. If there is a special cooler that will work it should be in BIG TEXT in the product description.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Board

Pros: Great little board. I've used ASUS for years, without ever having a DOA. It's been solid for me.

Cons: None I've come across.

Other Thoughts: I was wanting to build a small form factor desktop box. I used this board with a EVGA 750Ti which doesn't require a secondary power supply, and it's been great. I don't do a ton of gaming, but it has the juice I need.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap BUT not cheaply build

Pros: For the price I don't think you could find a better MB. It works great and was easy to install. As the price is cheap the actual build of it is not.

Cons: Only con I have is it didn't come with a USB 3.0 20 pin male socket for my Corsair Graphite 380T Mini ITX case. Not so much of a con to actually take an egg off. Work around would to get a USB 3.0 20 pin to a USB 2.0 female 9 pin for those who would like to know.

5 out of 5 eggsRunning on 120W Supply

Pros: Small, Compact, Perfect for the RV it is indented on going into.

Cons: Haven't had one yet...

Other Thoughts: Read reviews about needing a 350Watt power supply. I installed this in an In Win B656T case that has a 120W power supply and it runs great. I am using an SSD for a hard drive and no cd rom though. It powers my external hard drive as well for which I watch movies from.

1 out of 5 eggsNever Buying a Motherboard from Newegg, EVER again

Pros: Shipping was fast Received it the next day.
But that's about it

Cons: -DOA
-Refused Refund/Replacement by newegg
- Had to pay Shipping cost only to get same Broken motherboard shipped back to me.

So I want to start of by saying that I have been a newegg member for sometime now. And have been using them as my #1 store for all my electronic needs. Never had a problem. Was always pleased with what I received. Everything was always received in working condition.

I received this motherboard with BENT Pins on the CPU socket. So the ram slot away from the CPU wasn't working out the box. So I immediately opened a RMA ticket and shipped it to newegg only to be denied, Because they said that "I damaged the board". Mind you I have been building and working with computers for many years. never have I damaged a CPU socket. So because there is no way to prove I received a damaged motherboard. They of coarse denied me and sent me the broken board back.

I contacted ASUS. And they said it would cost me anywhere from $60-$90 to fix the problem. To fix something that I received DEFECTIVE from the start.

I am now out of $79.49 + $12 shipping and also without a motherboard.

So lesson learned for me. Don't buy MOTHERBOARDS from Newegg, and don't buy motherboards from ASUS. As they will send you something broken, refuse to help you and want you to pay more money for something you received broken.

Save yourself the headache/Time/Money and buy else Where. If your shopping around for motherboards, i repeat, STAY away newegg/Asus and buy else where. Avoid buying motherboards from here and be very cautious of newegg's shaddy practices

Other Thoughts: I have always suggested Newegg to all my friends/family members. I will definitely stir them away from here and never recommending this site to any one EVER again.

3 out of 5 eggsPSU requirement

Pros: Fulfilled a client request for WinXP compatibility, connectors are positioned well for easier installation, and supports Asus' EPU for energy saving.

Cons: Requires more than 150W PSU so it doesn't work with Antec's slim ISK offerings for micro ITX, even with a low power Celeron and no dedicated graphics card.

Other Thoughts: I'm still keeping the board, but now I have to get a case that can accommodate a higher watt PSU, probably SFX types. IIRC another review says this board needs ~350W PSU.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good

Pros: Everything I needed from a mini ITX motherboard, at the right price, and it's stable.

Cons: The CPU and RAM, and CPU and PCI-E are extremely close together, be wary of using a non-stock heatsink as it may block one of your RAM slots.
I was using ARCTIC Freezer 11 LP ( ) for my build, which barely fits in here without blocking the PCI-E slot and does block 1 RAM slot. This was more of an inconvenience, since I was only using 1 RAM stick..however it would be nice to see ASUS consider this in future generations of mini-itx boards.

Other Thoughts: I used this for my first mini-ITX build, so partially the con was a newcomer's mistake, not checking size extensively. I am pleased with the board, the building was just a bit more troublesome than it could have been.
