5 out of 5 eggs Awesome Intel ITX Board 02/23/2014

This review is from: ASRock H61MV-ITX LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Pros:

I'm going to keep this review short and sweet. For the money the value is hard to beat solid state caps for longer board life, supports relatively low power CPU's up to higher end LGA 1155 CPU's. I built this to replace an AMD E-450 build that was solid but just a bit under powered for my Virtualbox sessions to support customers on. I went with an Antec ISK 300-150 case which has 150watt PSU enough to have just enough overhead to run clean and small and tight, I almost went with their ultra SFF case but decided I wanted just a bit more space and an internal PSU. No problems using the stock Intel cooler, system performs very well even given the weak power of the integrated GPU. Paired with an SSD the system screams for regular business tasks using the Intel Celeron G1610. For HTPC purposes this has enough power to handle HD video and productivity apps with ease. Were talking 90$ for a CPU/MB that has plenty of performance for everything but gaming. The G1610 CPUScores 2543 on CPU Marks; again modest but plenty of power for the average user. Mainboard required little customization, BIOS menus were easy to navigate and I had no problems loading up Win7 home premium on an external slim drive. All in All the motherboard is fantastic, nothing too fancy at this price point, no USB 3.0 but enough features to make the small system builders like me very happy. My recommendation is for HTPC builds pair this board with an Intel CPU with integrated graphics capability and your set. Just pick the CPU and PSU/Case that fills your needs along with this board and you are set.

Cons:

No USB 3.0 and could use more USB headers on back of board but at this price not a biggie.

Other Thoughts:

As a sidebar; I would like to see Intel work on greater performance of their integrated GPU's however the bang for your dollar cant be beat on a ITX build like this. This motherboard is an outstanding value and should sway some AMD system builders back to the Intel camp for its price/performance ratio.
