Works, with some quirks. 03/04/2014
Wasn't dead, appealing color scheme, multiple USB 3.0 ports and video outputs.
I'm not putting this under con as it's more an issue of Windows (and I guess myself as the PC doesn't have a DVD drive). I figured I would share for anyone else who might happen upon my scenario.
During installation of Windows 7 via a USB stick, the installation would have an error reading the USB. Turns out unplugging it and then choosing to continue with the install and then plugging the stick back in fixed the issue.
Also with Windows 7, the correct drivers for the USB 3.0 ports had to be manually downloaded from the ASUS site as a 1GB chipset driver set (I assume they were on the disk, but being Micro ATX many might also not be using a DVD drive).
Once that all was done, everything on the board worked and ran smoothly.
Rest of specs:
Kingston HyperX Blu 8GB 1600Mhz
WD 250GB SATA HDD
