5 out of 5 eggsGreat Haswell ITX board.

Pros: I bought this when I was moving an ATX build into an ITX case and saw all the reviews about how well-built and reliable it was, as well as the /eight/ rear USB ports and M.2 support. I haven't been disappointed at all -- it was easy to build with, presented no issues at all, and boots lightning fast (<10 seconds from power button to logging in). The BIOS is incredibly intuitive and well-designed -- setting up CPU and case fan curves was a matter of a few clicks. Also looks awesome. Definitely an improvement on my last board.

Cons: Mostly minor:

M.2 slot is only PCIe 2.0 x2.
Loud, annoying CMOS beep every time the computer boots up. Had I known I wouldn't have connected the speaker.
Couldn't find any option in BIOS to power on via USB keyboard/mouse.
No BIOS option to disable blinking power LED when in sleep mode (my computer and bed are about six feet apart).

The board shipped to me had visible scratches on metal parts and was clearly a returned or refurbished board sold as new. It works fine and none of the other cons are major, so it still gets five eggs. But still.

Other Thoughts: I'd pay another $20 for a wifi/Bluetooth card. Also kind of wish it had a second rear optical out. "ASUS" splash screen on boot could be bigger!

My build:
SanDisk SSD Plus 120GB
EVGA SuperNova GS 650
DVD drive
Fractal Design Core 500

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: a lot of features

Cons: Only one RAM slot works

Other Thoughts: I tried to RMA the board but ASUS didn't do anything and they just sent it back.... still broken. I'm ordering a different board

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for sharing your ASUS experience. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this issue has caused. What is the part number to the RAM you are using? Is you memory provided on ASUS Qualified Vendor's List. If you still can't boot please make sure to Clear CMOS. Use one memory module only. Remove GPU and other devices from board. Just leave the CPU and plug you monitor into the motherboard directly to check for POST. Once the system POSTs, proceed with a firmware update for the latest microcode for your CPU. For the latest UEFI build (2704) please visitour ASUS Online Help Desk at: If you need further troubleshooting tips, feel free to contact me at

Thank you for choosing ASUS!

Best Regards,
ASUS Customer Loyalty - US Support

5 out of 5 eggsWork Great!

Pros: I've owned this mobo for 8 months now and everything is working great. Bios features make things easy for those who want to overlock. I recommend this mobo.

Cons: Only con would be the capacitors in the way for liquids cooling. H100 corsair cooling system won't fit due to the size and location of the capacitors. Just heads up!

4 out of 5 eggsgreat motherboard

Pros: Itx boards are a game of tradeoffs, this one does it better than most. Fan header placement is great, no issues getting fans plugged in. Love the unified case header plug for power on/reset/led. Getting those on the right pins is always tricky for me. I don't have the best vision for reading small print on pcbs.

Cons: They could of left in the WiFi card and the heatsink for the power management portion of the board. I'm sure they didn't bother to equip these thing to lower costs and thus price to clear out stock.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend only using haswell cpus with this board, if you wish to use a broadwell cpu, you'll have to flash the bios using a usb jump drive. It is the only way I know of to fully update bios. The cpu management portion of the bios won't update any other way that I know of, check with manufacturer on how to properly flash the bios via jump drive.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for my NAS/Media server

Pros: Great board
BIOS is ok, easy enough to configure

Cons: A couple more SATA ports would have been nice.

Other Thoughts: Chose this for my Unraid NAS/Plex server. Already owned the Z97I-Plus MB in my gaming PC, so was familiar with the board and BIOS. Had everything I needed. Used a i7-4970k that i wasn't using instead of buying a more efficient CPU, but enabled "power saving mode" in the BIOS to lower core voltages. Had no issues with first start, everything came up.

-Cubitek Mini Cube ITX Case
-16gb USB 2.0 Flashdrive w/ Unraid OS
-Asus H97I-Plus MB
-Intel i7-4970k CPU w/ Noctua NH-L9x65
-Silverstone SX500-LG SFX PSU
-G.SKILL TridentX 1600 (2x8gb)
-3xSeagate 4TB NAS HDDs (1-Parity 2-Storage)
-1xSamsung 840 EVO 120gb SSD(Cache drive)

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid if using Broadwell i5-5676C or i7-5775C

Pros: Lots of features in a small package. The BIOS is pretty cool.

Cons: Did not POST with a Core i7-5775C out of the box. Had to install a Haswell CPU to upgrade to the latest BIOS, then re-install the i7-5775C. After installing the i7-5775C, it POSTs and I can get into BIOS, but the HDMI output doesn't work at all and the system just hangs when I try to install the OS from bootable media to install the OS. I've tried USB Flash and USB DVD drive. Neither work with this board, but both work fine when plugged into another H87-chipset computer with UEFI BIOS.

Other Thoughts: Wish I could actually see this thing work. Board seems to be discontinued.

5 out of 5 eggsMighty Mite

Pros: Best UEFI BIOS setup of any major vendor
MiniPCIe and M.2 slots
VGA/, DVI, HDMI, Displayport all there
All solid caps, great power delivery setup
Intel NIC

Cons: Onboard analog audio is lackluster (Realtek 1150 would improve this, doesn't merit subtracting an egg; you can use HDMI in a media center)
Could use one more USB header (don't know where you'll find the room though, and doesn't merit subtracting an egg)

Other Thoughts: I purchased this board as part of a combo to upgrade my HTPC. I'm using a Core i5-4590S, a Noctua NH-L9i cooler, 2 x 4GB Kingston DDR3L, a Samsung PM851 M.2 128GB SSD, LiteON BD-ROM, in an nMedia 7000B case with the LCD kit. It's a rock-solid board. For small applications, I don't see how you can go wrong.

4 out of 5 eggsGood

Pros: -Looks great, layout of everything is mostly perfect for most ITX cases. Fan headers are in acceptable position.
-Functional and sleek bios. Works great.
-A huge number of USB ports on the back
-Great packaging, came with a lot of useful little items

Cons: -Questionable placement of sata ports to the left of the RAM slots. Makes it pretty tough to get sata cables in there cleanly. When trying to get it snug, the port actually ripped right off the motherboard. Oh well.
-Questionable color scheme.. my build is mostly black, and it looks great, but if you're trying to make a color themed build it might be a problem.

Other Thoughts: Quality motherboard for a great price. Simple as that.

5 out of 5 eggsSo small, but so epic!

Pros: I love how this board has everything I need and more in such a small package. Not sure if I will ever go back to a full ATX board anymore. Unless you really need the expansion space, just no reason to go that route. Running this in my midtower Antec case right now, but will eventually put this in a smaller ITX case. Love the 1150 as it gives me room to upgrade to a core i7 in the future, but allows me to keep my build within budget now. Can't say that about many of the AMD options out there. Really happy with my purchase. Solid board!

Build: Core i3 4160, ASUS H97I-PLUS, Intel 120GB SSD, G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600, EVGA 02G-P4-2962-KR GeForce GTX 960 Superclocked 2GB GDDR5 128bit

Cons: None
