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 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835186060 ) 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.

Pros: - Small form factor

3 out of 5 eggsRequires more power than neccessary

Pros: Very small, easy to fit, amazing integrated features

Cons: Requires 350 watt power supply, despite being ITX

Other Thoughts: I was under the impression that the entire point of an ITX motherboard is that it draws extremely little power with an appropriate CPU. I purchased this to go with a miniITX case a friend sent me with an integrated 125 watt power supply.

Buried in the manual is a line about how the motherboard requires at least a 350 watt power supply. Why? By my calculations, this system should draw only 75 watts at peak. Perhaps I'm an idiot, but I really do not understand this.

Regardless, the motherboard has insufficient power to work. I will need to buy a new case and PSU, hiking the costs up. I really wish ASUS had put information about the inflated power requirements on it's website, and Newegg had done likewise for this page.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Sorry to hear that you purchased the motherboad assuming it will handle the 125W PSU. Here is a link below that will help you calculate how much power you will actually need with your setup.
http://support.asus.com/powersupply.aspx

Just using the bare minimum 125W is not powerful enough.

If you have any questions or comments you can email me again at cl-jeffrey@asus.com which I reside in the U.S

ASUS strives to meet and exceeds our customer expectations within our warranty policy.

Regards,

Jeffrey

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board

Pros: Easy to install, fired right up. Connections on the board & I/O very solid feeling. Well laid out

Cons: For an ITX board, I would have liked to have seem a digital audio out plug included with the board. It is available on the board with a separate connector. But you must buy the I/O connector which I found online for $10.00.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard.

Pros: Very nice, cheap motherboard. UEFI is cool. Fits my Pentium G630 to make the perfect budget Mini-ITX home file server. I made sure to get a USB 3.0 motherboard so I can use my USB 3.0 external SATA drive so I can get fast transfer speeds, as this is a file server. So far so good.

Cons: No Wi-Fi, but I wouldn't be running a server over Wi-Fi for sure.

Other Thoughts: buy it.
