Pros: Great Mobo/CPU/GPU combo! Everyone says this Mobo is not for gaming, while that is true to a degree, it's not entirely true. I use this mob in a system I built as a media server and yet it games pretty well. I get 40-50 fps in World of Warcraft with all settings set to low except textures and view distance, which I have set to high. Game still looks great and runs awesome. That ION really is a little powerhouse!
Cons: The CPU is the weak point on this mobo but from what I read it out performs its Atom brothers and I really can't complain as, despite the fact it is the lowest score on the Windows Experience Index, I notice no sluggeshness when doing anything on the computer.
Other Thoughts: System specs

Excellent so far
Pros: silentpcreview loves this board.
Cons: No fan control on case fan -- why in the world not? A bizarre oversight, particularly on an SFF board.
Other Thoughts: The wifi I got was an Atheros AR9285, but I guess that could change in future revisions of the board. Other than that chip, everything on the board should be well supported by your freenix of choice.

Very low power at idle, modest power under load, with decent performance.
