Very good compatibility, feature packed. 01/25/2014
This motherboard is able to boot with Kaveri processors even on BIOS as old as 1.00! I was worried that I would need a Trinity/Richland chip just to update the BIOS for Kaveri but a tech with ASRock assured me that this board will post with the new APUs enough to update it. It also comes packed with more features than I ever thought I would see on a mini ITX board.
The WiFi antenna is big, clumsy and generally works against the simplicity of a mITX system. I used normal SMA WiFi antennas instead. The only problem is that the connectors are supposed to be mounted to the motherboard I/O shield plate. The fasteners cannot get a very good grip on the plate and have a tendency to rotate.
Fasten those antenna connectors as tightly as possible.
