Pros: Not many options for FM2 in mITX format. The WEFI firmware update function worked like a champ. Relatively easy to use.
Cons: The Motherboard was rather slow. It seemed to underclock the processor to 14x more often than desired. Then it died after 45 days.
Other Thoughts: It had been working fine (although slow) for a month and a half, on firmware 1.1, then I wanted to update the firmware to see if the performance improved. I did so, but performance did not improve. I turned the dehumdifier function on and rebooted, and everything was normal for a few hours. I put the machine to sleep, and woke up the next day and the system would not post. Took everything unessential out of the rig, still would not post. Switched PSU's (original was a seasonic, substitue was a coolermaster) and still nothing. Took it out of case, rinse and repeat, still nothing =(. I guess we will see what ASrock suppor has to say.READ FULL REVIEW

Cons: After about 6-8 months the fan would die and it would make horrible beeping noises and turn off...READ FULL REVIEW
