good board 06/25/2013
Good board, nics work well, boot quickly. Stays cool and quiet. CPU is very good for what it is. Plays 1080 Netflix but CPU usage is very high. Connected to infinitytv 4 tuner, able to use all 4 tuners at once (hd 1080i, 3 record, 1 watching). Comes out of suspend quickly. Connected as a htpc with a SSD boot drive and a iscsi drive(2tb) using a dedicated network interface. 0 issues so far, it has been on constantly since I received it and been threw a few power failures with no problems. In small htpc case with no additional cooling other than CPU fan. With 50" plasma attached.
Ivy bridge but no USB 3.0, only 1 sata 6gb port.
Very impressed with this board. Runs WMC very well, just waiting for UbuntuTV.....
I have had 3 other htpc(s) although this was least powerful, it's my favorite cause it is quiet and cool and dual nics allow for large storage with small footprint, iscsi is the way to go.
