5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Board

Pros: After working with ASUS I found that this board will over clock with the G3258 however the unlocked multiplier only affects the processors turbo frequency. Using the Intel Stress test I verified the times to complete the test was less with the increased multiplier even though CPU-Z reported stock speeds. The ASUS utility shows the correct speed and temperature. I have the G3258 running at 4.3GHz turbo with an R7 260 and the system boots in under 5 seconds. Crysis 3 runs at 60 fps with Vsych engaged at 720P. All in All the system does everything I want at a great price point so I am very pleased. Board is loaded with features so I will not write about all of those since you can look at the specs. Bottom line is its solid and great for ITX builds for HTPC's or gaming. This is an update to my original review submission.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board

Pros: This is a very nice board. Well thought out, and just enough frills for a power business user - but it also works well for a game or two (not that the business folks play games <grin>)
Fits beautifully in a Cool Master Elite 130 case. Dropped in an i7 -4790k with a Cool Master Seidon 120V liquid cooler and this thing blazes - very fast system. The addition of a Transcend 256 GB M.2 SSD (TS256GMTS800) for the system and this thing boots Windows 7 Pro in under 5 seconds.

Cons: None to speak of yet.

Other Thoughts: I have installed hundreds of different mobos over the years - this one is a keeper for sure.

3 out of 5 eggsNice Board and features

Pros: Excellent ITX board. Quality components and features in a small form factor. My only gripe is that the board with latest firmware is not allowing me to overclock a new Intel G3258. I would have gone with a less expensive mainboard had I been aware of all the issues with overclocking on this unit. BIOS has a lot of features and so far the board has been solid for me with the exception of the OC issues which many others are reporting online with this same model. I have notified ASUS as well and if they come up with a solution I will update my review and rating.

Cons: Unlocked current model G3258 CPU will not overclock with this board.

4 out of 5 eggsGood ASUS MoBo

Pros: Mini-ITX boards are small by design, this one has the processor in the center, which makes it easier to install. Installation was not too hard, and everything worked without fuss with one exception.

Cons: ASUS did not implement Realtek's Dolby Digital Live or DTS connect features, so you cannot use a digital cable to connect it to your 5.1 system. The analog connectors do this fine, but it's a disappointment given that they are always noisy compared to digital connections.

Other Thoughts: Power connectors were a little tight, I don't know whether fault lies with the Motherboard or the power supply. The pad on back plate was entirely too thick, so I had to peel it off to be able to install the motherboard into the case.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat ITX Board

Pros: For ITX board it is packed with many features.
Put a ZALMAN CNPS8900 Quiet 110mm Ultra Quiet Slim CPU Cooler on it inside a Cooler Master Elite 130 - Mini-ITX Case
With a Crucial MX100 it boots up Windows 8.1 in under 10 seconds
Had no problems navigating BIOS, updating BIOS, installing drivers. Had computer up and running with no problems.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've had good luck with ASUS motherboards, the trend continues here. I am very satisfied with this board and would hightly recommend it.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Mobo

Pros: Great mobo. Bought 3, all worked out of the box.

I used the Stock Intel Cooler for better or worse.
It does fine and does not touch the psu.

Works well in Coolmaster Elite 130 case.
The usb ports on this mobo match the Elite 130 perfectly.
No usb ports left unconnected.
Packed it with 16GB Curcial RAM.
Also has optical audio out, a must for me.

Cons: I had a little problem with one of the drivers for one of the components. Had to download an intel driver from the intel site. Can't remember which one gave me problems.

Other Thoughts: All the other drivers worked well. Only had to download one from web.

Tons of usb 2 & Usb 3 ports.

I did not add a Cg Card. It has vga/hdmi/dvi just what I needed.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid little board

Pros: Motherboard has very neat layout
Very solidly built and handsome
Easy UEFI BIOS...probably the best I've worked with.
Intel Gigabit LAN
CPU placement ideally situated in center of board.

Cons: Rear IO plate not much stronger than aluminum foil sandwich wrap

Other Thoughts: Installed win-7 Home Premium/64 without a glitch and booted right up. Didn't bother updating any drivers as everything works so well, why bother messing with it. With i3-4360 and Samsung 850 Pro 128GB SSD it went from pressing the power button to windows desktop (Cold Boot) in 12 seconds. That's 3 sec faster than my MSI Z97 U3 Plus SSD equipped i5-4690.

For those of you wondering how it runs with an i3 for online use with no GPU, well, it's blazing fast with the SSD and 8GB of RAM. If you run a few apps, have several tabs open on your browser and maybe play some nice looking flash slot games on facebook, then you will be surprised how good it is. No lag at all anywhere. Just a workhorse of a system with this board. 1080p HD youtube videos run smoothly as well with no stuttering.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Motherboard works well and is easy to setup.

Cons: This may be related to the motherboard or to the SSD. There is a hardware conflict between Kingston 64GB SSD V series and the motherboard. With two of them installed they will both be recognized on the first boot. Then when rebooting one or both may not show in BIOS. Using two Samsung SSD's and their is no problem. Changing the Kingston SSD's to different ports makes no difference in their behavior.

Other Thoughts: If you are having problems with HD's or SSD's being recognized it may be worthwhile trying a different brand before sending the motherboard back.

4 out of 5 eggsA powerful board with the future in mind

Pros: ASUS' fan control UEFI configuration is brilliant. This really allows my system to stay cool and quiet.

The board is handsome, and the quantity of USB ports is great.

More configuration options than most people would know what to do with. There's not really anything left locked or untouchable, which is perhaps dangerous for those who don't know what they're doing. Hell, some of these options require you to be an electrician for proper configuration.

I love the M.2 port, which I use for my SSD boot volume. This saves on cable clutter and power consumption. Based on my positive experiences with the interface itself, I can imagine this is the future of SSD storage. I'm glad ASUS thought to include it--it was the deciding factor in choosing this board over others.

Cons: The M.2 port I mentioned previously is a huge plus, but, unfortunately, its placement on the rear of the board means that I have to remove absolutely everything from my ITX enclosure just to get to the M.2 SSD. Also, the screw thing that would hold the M.2 SSD in place is so tightly attached to the board that upon attempting to unscrew it, the top of the screw instantly wore smooth and shredded. Now I can't get it out to move into the proper place for my SSD, which means my SSD is not properly installed, sitting on top of the screw mount rather than securely in it. Thankfully, the backplate of my case keeps the M.2 SSD in place. I'd love to hear back from ASUS on a solution for this. Very frustrating, and a star lost.

Is a bit slow to load the UEFI... I don't remember it being that way on the first few initializations. I set everything back to factory spec at one point, but that didn't fix the issue. It's not a huge deal, but expect to stare at a completely blank screen for five or more seconds after hitting F2 or DEL. If you're not loading to UEFI but instead booting the OS, you won't have this issue.

For a board over a hundred dollars, a colored/black backplate would've been nice. This is the same CRAРРY ugly one from ASUS' $50 line of AMD boards. Not worth losing a star over, of course.

Other Thoughts: As mentioned in the "pros," this board is tremendously configurable. I can't imagine what the Z97 variant has that this doesn't. If my chip were unlockable, I could overclock it despite this being an H97.
