3 out of 5 eggsOK but has a flaw

Pros: Decent specs for the price, for most people it will work fine

Cons: The C6 state appears flawed. Windows and older Linux kernels don't use that state so most people won't have a problem. The ubuntu and linux mint flavors do use later Linux Kernels however which does make use of the C6 state and they will experience random reboots unless they apply the workaround below to disable it.

Other Thoughts: There is a simple workaround to disable the c6 kernel state in these systems:

edit /etc/default/grub
find the line that starts like the one below and make it finish like it also:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash i915.i915_enable_rc6=0"

4 out of 5 eggsPlenty happy

Pros: Fast enough for what I need, act as a router.

Cons: I bought this to act as a hybrid internet gateway, and traffic manager. I use Linux mint on a 64 GB SSD and am happy.

Low cost, LOW power consumption, and good performance. If you want to watch movies I suggest a quad core, if just surf, this is the cheapest you can get.

Other Thoughts: Not per se a media center pc... but dummy terminal and basic internet client, and other base functions are easily handled. Get quality memory.

4 out of 5 eggsGood little board....Debian issues....

Pros: Silent, HDMI, Low power.

Cons: Flakiness with Debian.

Other Thoughts: If you plan on using any sort of Debian flavor (Ubuntu, Mint, etc.) You will need to do this to fix the random reboots due to some flukiness with the power management between Debian and this board. Since figuring it out this thing is rock solid.

Go to the Console:

nano /etc/default/grub

and update the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT like this

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="i915.i915_enable_rc6=0"

Finally,

update-grub

reboot

4 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Small, (also a con in some cases), quiet, works.

Cons: I wouldnt want such a low powered item going in one of my builds but for my customer who checks email and plays spider solitaire it should be just fine.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard for the Price

Pros: I built an HTPC with this computer and it works really well. If you plan on gaming with this board don't get it the CPU isn't strong enough to run games. The CPU however does support OSX 10.9 so you can use this board as hackintosh machine. I have both Mac OSX and Windows on the PC I built it.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat HTPC System

Pros: Great little board and system. I leave it on 24/7, and don't have any issues. This is our primary media center system, and it works great. I use Media Center (with Media Browser) and don't have one complaint. I added an AverMedia HDTV Tuner (ATSC) dual tuner card, and I don't have any hiccups watching 1080p live TV. My setup has 8GBs memory and no after market video card. I also stream 1080p MKV files and VOB files over my network, and have no issues.

Great little system at a great price, and I highly recommend this as a cost effective HTPC.

Cons: No USB 3.0

5 out of 5 eggsAlmost perfect for HTPC

Pros: - Reliable; powered on for 6 straight months now with no hiccups.
- Low power
- Decent CPU
- OK GPU

Cons: On-board graphics don't quite cut it for streaming live 1080i TV

Other Thoughts: I decided to see how this board would do in an HTPC setup. Much to my surprise....it's wonderful! The CPU is plenty to run Windows Media Center. You will; however, want to invest in a dedicated graphics card as the integrated Intel HD Graphics simply couldn't hack it for streaming live HD TV channels from my HD HomeRun Prime. Now that I have a dedicated graphics card installed, I have an ample performing, low power DVR!

My HTPC:
BIOSTAR NM70I-847
Antec ISK 300-150
Radeon HD6450
8GB RAM
60GB SSD
1TB HDD

5 out of 5 eggsC6 :(

Pros: It is a mini-itx board, fan isn't too loud, it works.

Cons: running with relatively recent linux kernels causes it to reboot from time to time. On the ubuntu forums, MadOCer found a workaround by adding i915.i915_enable_rc6=0 to the kernel parameters preventing the cpu from going into a lower C-state. This fix appears to be working.
