4 out of 5 eggs Watch out if you are not using Intel cooler 11/19/2012

This review is from: Intel BOXDH77DF LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Pros:

Full of features. Firewire, USB3, Intel NIC.
Pretty energy efficient.
With a Sandy Bridge CPU (G630T) + 80PLUS PSU, it idles around 20W at AC without disks. (I'm a little disappointed. I expected even less.)
16GB max memory.
I'm using this for FreeNAS home server. Between USB3 and Firewire, moving large data out from the box is relatively painless.
Ivy Bridge ready.

Cons:

It cannot take the CPU cooler with back plate because of the surface mount components on the backside of motherboard interferes with it.
I was planning to use a large cooler as passive, but I had to use another cooler that uses push-pin style. (I don't like Intel's push-pins.)
I'm using ARCTIC Freezer 11 LP, and it's tight but works.

Other Thoughts:

I have no need for video, I cannot comment on that. I hooked up monitor while setting up BIOS and first boot, but after that, it's monitor less.
Being unable to use the planned cooler was a mild annoyance. Looking at the back of motherboard now, I realize that there is no space for the back plate that exists for microATX and larger boards.
Live and learn.
