Not even listed on ASUS web site
Pros: Nice feature set at attractive price point, has nearly everything you would ever want (well, except a clear description).
Cons: This board isn't listed on the ASUS web site, so you cannot look up the listing for which memory is supposed to work. If you search on the promos.asus.com site, you can find it, but it doesn't matter how many times you click on that pretty picture, you never get to the mobo documentation.
Other Thoughts: ASUS: Hire a human factors engineer and industrial designer to fix your impossible to navigate web site

Other Thoughts: decided to leave suitcase sized desktops behind, so sold my socket 2011 stuff and bought maximus mITX board, doa, another maximus, another doa, then got this. build went easy. 3x sata III ssd raid 0 array loaded win7 no problem. on the socket 2011 rampage IV formula, loading win7 to a raid 0 array (only 2x sata III raid) was pia. layout should have been a little better thought out, as mITX boards are going to be put into tiny cases almost always. bios is extremely comprehensive, but i left overclocking behind several years ago when it got too easy and presented no challenge.

Great so far
Pros: Haven't had any problems with the board over the last month. Also have not seen any of the wifi problems others have noted with either ac or n. Booted up on first try without any messing around. Only had to select XMP for memory to get the correct speed.
Cons: None at this time
Other Thoughts: Current Build

Zippy little motherboard with a few issues
Pros: Little board with all the little things included! This board was used in a build that moves around from week to week, and having to only carry the box and my headset makes everything worth it.
Cons: - A lot of people have commented on this, but the wireless, for me, has connection stuttering issues. An example is when I am playing WoT, I get issues with my tank jumping around occasionally. This could be my internet connection, but meh.
Other Thoughts: Overall, the board has better offerings than most ITX boards for Haswell out on the market today, but the board still has flaws. A good amount of them.

Great if you don't wan't 5G wi-fi
Pros: Not many
Cons: I bought this board with it's limitations because of the 802.11ac with 5ghz connection to improve it's ability to remotely get on the internet. My first MB did't recognize my 5Ghz router in the next room. I updated everything, then called ASUS. They claimed it was a faulty WiFi Board, and recommended I return it.

Excellent (aside from wireless issues)
Pros: I bought this motherboard to build an HTPC that could stream from my NAS to by TV. I needed a small, powerful mobo and have always loved ASUS.
Cons: My first board had some trouble connecting over wifi. After about a week, the wireless stopped altogether, so I RMA'd it.
Other Thoughts: This mobo is great. One thing to consider is that overclocking a Haswell will necessitate a CPU fan (pretty high temps). But, an mITX means you probably are dealing with space constraints.

Love this board
Pros: Like the yellow color scheme and Asus is an awesome brand. Nice Bios menu and for a small form factor things are arranged very well. can accommodate a large heatsink.
Cons: I put a bigger heatsink on this and I had clearance issues for the USB 3.0 header and access to the mobo fan connectors. If you have offset pliers you can easily access the fan connectors so that's not enough of a con to take an egg off, however the USB 3.0 header is,
Other Thoughts: make sure to use the lowest profile screws on the side where the PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot is for GPU clearance

Pros: Nice board. I like the position of the cpu socket. I can use a 120mm cpu cooler. Lots of features some of which I won't use.
Cons: The first board I got would not recognize my USB 3.0 flash drive that I had in my front panel USB 3.0 port after the USB 3.0 drivers were installed. I was using it to install the drivers I had downloaded from Asus. It was working ok until I installed the USB 3.0 drivers and rebooted. It would not recognize the USB 3.0 flash drive after that. USB 2 flash drives work ok. I reinstalled Win 7 OS and used the Asus included dvd to load the drivers and same thing. I tried one of the USB 3 ports on the back panel and it recognized it ok. I know there is no problem with the case front panel ports as I've use this case before.
Other Thoughts: Another thing I noticed is when I run CPUID Hardware Monitor it shows a "Mainboard" as having a temp of 112 degrees C. It varys bewteen 111 and 114. If this is indeed the motherboard temp it is EXTREMELY high. I've never seen a MB temp that high.They usually run cooler then the CPU which is running at 35 C at idle.

Great mobo, with built in Wi-Fi (fast)
Pros: When first starting up your computer with this mobo, you won't get any weird splash logos on your screen but instead, you get a nice and out of your way text at the bottom saying you can press delete to enter bios and a small splash of the logo on the top, it's very easy on the eyes (especially if you see it a lot)
Cons: None so far, other than the two slots of RAM (but you can get a lot of ram with two slots now a days, so i'm not really complaining)
Other Thoughts: Alright so, this motherboard having built in wireless is perfect for my little gaming power house build, (especially when i want to do steambox capablities)
