5 out of 5 eggs Solid mITX board with plenty of features 07/12/2014

This review is from: Gigabyte Ultra Durable 4 Classic GA-B75N Desktop Motherboard - Intel B75 Express Chipset - Socket H2 LGA-1155

Pros:

Excellent feature set on an mITX board. Very quick bootup with an i7 and SSD (not all motherboard boot times are equivalent, even with the same CPU and SSD/HDD). Dual gigabit LAN (although, uncertain why). Use of full-sized DIMMs for DDR3 is quite nice as most people transitioning to SFF cases often want to move their i5/i7 and DDR3, as well. This motherboard allows a better transition path for the end user wishing to make this switch to a small form factor on a reasonable budget. USB 3 is quite nice, and have been pleasantly surprised by the onboard audio thus far (Realtek).

Cons:

Not many cons, but the board layout could use some improvement. For instance, USB 3 and audio headers could be better served at the front end of the board instead of the back and sides, but this is really only relevant based on your case layout. Small board requires a well thought out CPU cooler as most larger coolers will not fit next to the PCI-e slot which will likely be occupied by a graphics card.

Other Thoughts:

Moved from an ATX, i7, nvidia SLI setup in a large tower to an mITX cube using a Corsair Obsidian 250D. So far have been very pleased with the build. I love the small, compact and powerful build possibilities using mITX.
