1 out of 5 eggsExtremely Upset

Pros: Easy to install.

Cons: No customer service for me on this one. No matter what I say they will not listen to me.

Other Thoughts: When I received the product it would only acknowledge one stick of ram (8 gig). I am using two sticks (16 gig total). I called customer service and they told me that it was the ram. I could accept that. Thank Goodness the ram company (G.Skill) sent me another stick of ram with no questions asked. I received the new stick of ram in a matter of a couple of days - installed it all once again and its the Same problem with the motherboard. I called again and went through it again. They told me it was the ram and I explained how it wasn't. They finally offered me an RMA. I paid a fee so that I could have one shipped to me before shipping back to them. This way I am not out of a MB. I send it back just like I was asked to send it back. 2-3 weeks ago. I received a message from fedex that they had received it. I get an email today stating: "Product was received with bent pins in the CPU socket. The CPU socket protector was installed when received. RMA notes have no mention of the product coming back to us in this condition. EVGA only will be able to accept your product for warranty if the product returns undamaged and in factory condition as indicated here - The amount is due to repair the unit at a discounted price if you choose as we are unable to accept this product in as-is for RMA."

This is where my problem is. They are now wanting me to pay $71 to have something repaired that they can't prove that it wasn't already that way. This is not my first rodeo. You can keep the MB and my extra $220+ to get it shipped here. After paying $500 for a board that I will not even use because I will not do business with companies like this. I rather eat it then use it. So EVGA you just lost a customer with your video card and your MotherBoard forever. To be that dis-repectful to me on the phone is just not professional. This is the first bad comment I have ever had to make on any company EVER. I just could not let this one go.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am very sorry to hear that you feel that you are not being supported as I can confirm that we are trying to work with you. Please keep in mind that bending the CPU pins does require that the entire socket is replaced to fix the problem that you are experiencing with the product. In this case since the memory was not detecting then this unfortunately does likely mean that the pins controlling that memory slot were accidentally bent during the install of the processor. Please do not hesitate to let us know if you should have any further questions by contacting us by phone at 1-888-881-3842 or by replying to the email that was received about the damage to this product.

5 out of 5 eggsEVGA ROCKS!

Pros: Color scheme, USB 3.0 and the layout. I love everything about this little board.

Cons: NONE.

Other Thoughts: This board has everything I needed and more. I don't really use wireless for gaming (who games on WiFi : / ) so that wasn't really a con. Plus, people who write bad reviews because a product didn't have what they needed it for lol really? Go read the product description and specifications first before clicking Add to Cart.

5 out of 5 eggsJust what I was looking for

Pros: I like to have sound cards in my rigs. One thing that was holding me back from making an ITX build was that there isn't enough room for a video card and a sound card. Putting a creative labs sound core on the board is what finally pushed me to being able to make my ITX build. This is the exact reason why I chose this board over the ASUS ROG competitor, and I hope more ITX boards like this are offered in the future. Besides that, EVGA makes great boards. And I'm loving the new BIOS menu. Being able to use my mouse is great. Do I need it? No, but its nice.

Cons: NO WIFI ON BOARD. This is such a huge con. I'm not docking an egg because this is literally the only ITX board on the market right now that satisfied my needs. But I would have paid more money to have wifi, honestly. I'm using a USB wifi adapter and it is pulling great speeds thanks to USB 3.0, but it would be so much cleaner to have an onboard solution. I hope ITX picks up enough consumers to push for more full feature boards in the future. But for now this is a great first step (or maybe the ASUS ROG board is the first step and this is a step and a half?).

Other Thoughts: I was more of an ASUS xonar fan for a while, but this new creative line seems to have cleaned up their act BIG TIME. The software and drivers are light years (i'm really not exaggerating here) ahead of the last time I used a creative labs sound card (X-fi titanium... or platinum?). I will happily look back into creative labs products for future sound needs thanks to what I am seeing here. I'm glad Asus gave them a run for their money forcing them to clean up their software, competition is always good for the consumer.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome performance, layout, size, EVERYTHING.

Pros: Fast, fast, FAST, especially when paired with a Haswell i7 4770 CPU, 16GB Corsair Dominator Platinum RAM, a nice Corsair H100i CPU cooler (or a eVGA Hadron Hydro case/radiator combo, along with an eVGA Titan GPU w/Hydrocopper waterblock... nice, clean, tight-fit... but I found that the pump/reservoir combo included with the eVGA Hadron Hydro watercooling kit is a little questionable, in terms of quality and providing sufficient output for BOTH a CPU and a GPU... but I digress...) and a nice NVIDIA GPU... and it fits beautifully in nearly ANY itty-bitty ITX case. Oh, and it fits pretty good in most mITX, ATX, eATX, or, (insert your favorite letter of the alphabet)-ATX case you can imagine.

Cons: Older BIOS was BAD, BAD, BAD... I'd go as far as to call it the epitome of evil-doing and baby-hating, for being so temperamental and uncooperative with virtually any non-completely-mainstream hardware/semi-aggressive settings.

Other Thoughts: In the more recently-released MB's, or those that have been updated with the newer v1.08 BIOS, the updated BIOS is OUTSTANDING (x3), fixing many of the (lack of)compatibility and (weedtodddid)configuration issues. Aesthetically, this board looks beautiful and can be dressed-up/easily adjusted to match nearly any setup, with it's black/red color scheme. Performance-wise, when paired with the standard-issue Z87-compatible performance-oriented hardware, it can keep up with, and/or surprise you, in comparison with it's mITX/ATX/eATX brethren. Just don't expect it to be outperforming that one dude's X79, Socket 2011 eleventeen-core, quad-SLI giga-rig, jam-packed in a custom Frigidaire icebox, lit-up like the Griswold Family's house on National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation...

5 out of 5 eggsI love this little guy

Pros: It's only a mini-itx board and was so simple to put into my tower (my tower can fit mITX or mATX). Everything that you need is on this little guy: usb 3.0, sata 6gb/s, and not only that but it's fast. The thing I love most though: the bios. I couldn't have asked for an easier to use bios, seriously. That and it's made by EVGA, need I say more? Although I do wish EVGA made a mATX z87 chipset. Reset button and power button right on the mobo is definitely a pro

Cons: The only thing I can think of is how the USB 3.0 I/O port is a little close the pci-e x16 slot. Not a big deal, just wish it was up a couple mm higher

Other Thoughts: My setup:
Fractal Design R2 mini case with all fan slots filled
EVGA z87 Stinger Mobo
Core i7 Haswell cooled by Zalman CNPS9700
EVGA GTX 650 ti cooled by Arctic Accelero Mono Plus
8gb g.skill DDR3@2400mhz
120Gb Samsung SSD
300Gb WD Raptor Drive

It even comes with a cool little cover that goes over your backports for aesthetic purposes like if you have a windowed side panel. Cool looking south and northbridge heatsinks. It's a sexy little mobo

I like the fact that my computer is faster than all of my friend's and brother's computers despite the fact they have full ATX setups :)

5 out of 5 eggsWhy you should choose this board

Pros: I'm having no issues with it. The BIOS works perfect. Overclocking has no issues.

I have a 4770k at a mild overclock of 4.2GHz, completely stable. And also a ATI 7970. Very small case so i'm just RAIDing 2 Samsung 250GB SSDs. I came from a EVGA Z77 board, not the stinger, but the improvements across the board make the board worth it.

Pros: Just as good as a ATX board for gaming systems.
UEFI (BIOS) Looks and works easy as can be, tons of options
Plenty of USB 3 ports
Plenty of Fan connectors

Pros: Just as good as a ATX board for gaming systems.
UEFI (BIOS) Looks and works easy as can be, tons of options
Plenty of USB 3 ports

Cons: The front panel audio and USB2 are impossible to get at after installing the rear I/O cover plate. Do that first if you want those options. For cable management reasons i just opt'd out of using them.

Other Thoughts: This board is the perfect medium. Let me explain. It overclocks fine. And that's all you really need for a m-ITX. Works just as well as any ATX. You aren't going to nitrogen cool this board at completions, you dont need a daughter board with extra power. The ASUS board is really really nice, but you just dont need it. I choose the EVGA mainly because i'm using the EVGA Hadron Hydro and it's made to fit. Plus the daughter board would most likely block some fan stream. Overall great board and great new BIOS (uefi).

2x8 Corsair Dominator platinum ddr3 1600
corsair cx750m psu
LianLi pc-q28b case
Samsung 250gb ssd

5 out of 5 eggsnice!

Pros: Nice mobo with easy options. Seems to be compatible with everything. If you are new or old to overclocking it is a breeze. Lots of easy features for the new people with plenty of customization for the experienced to maximize performance.

Soundblaster on board is a nice touch.

Cons: nothing really, for a mitx form factor it has everything you'd need.

Other Thoughts: Nice setup and I am currently using this as my main pc. I have 3 other mitx pc's hooked up to all of the tv's in my house as I cut the cable cord awhile ago.

I'm probably going to upgrading a few other components as the switch to mitx for my main pc has sacrificed the ability to run xfire or sli. Went from xfire 7950 to just one.

4770k @ 4.5ghz, Corsair h60 (h90 ordered), 16gb Adata 2400, samsung 840 pro, 3x seagate 3tb, 7950 3gb, 650w, fractal node 304.

5 out of 5 eggsDefinitely a good purchase

Pros: Everything booted the first try. BIOS was very easy to use, even someone new to building would understand it. OC'd nicely.

Cons: None that I can think of so far.

Other Thoughts: Haven't had a chance to see if the Sound Core3d makes any difference. Will compare to a Realtek soon.

EVGA Z87 Stinger, 4670k CPU, 1866 Corsair Vengeance Pro, EVGA 770 Classified Hydro Copper, 120GB Corsair Neutron GTX SSD, WD Caviar Black 1TB HDD, Modified EVGA HAdron Hydro.
