This review is from: MSI A68HI AC FM2+ AMD A68H SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard
Pros: I'll go on record to say that these DOA reviewers are probably novices that don't know what they are doing. I have been building computers for twenty years and have one DOA board (in the 1990's) which was before modern QC protocols were in effect.
Cons: The heat sink rubs against my Corsair water cooling device. Not a big deal.
Other Thoughts: Great product, Windows 10 doesn't work too well, but it didn't work too well with any board I have tested. So, Windows 8.1 is it, which I feel is the finest OS by MS ever !READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The first PRO that lead me to purchase this case was the fact that I could use a normal sized power supply for my first venture into the ITX form factor. The price is certainly right. I was also able to install a Corsair H60 and a platter drive in the top with plenty of room to spare.
Cons: I just can't think of any.
Other Thoughts: This being my first ITX build and working with such tight spaces, I was very satisfied that at "post time" (like in the horse races...) everything booted up just perfectly. Case looks great next to my other stereo components, and even though it feels big inside, it still has a very small and polished look. unlike a normal ugly desktop box.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Like another reviewer said... it's all you need. I'm not an over-clocker.... in fact, I think the obsession with squeezing another mega or giga hertz out of your CPU is just plain SILLY ! I don't get it.
Also trialed an ASrock Extreme4 and it was a total disaster compared to my experience with the UD3P. Windows 10 x64 is just FAST and STABLE with this board.
Cons: Didn't do my homework completely and found out after the purchase that my SM951 required an additional hardware investment in an x4 adapter card in order to unleash its full potential. Oh well. The horizontal orientation of the ATX4P connector is just stupid. My mouse pointer moves very slowly in the UEFI bios which is annoying.
Other Thoughts: I'm a Gigabyte fan for sure. Have used all different brands over the years - I'm sure Gigabyte will provide support for this product for many years to come..READ FULL REVIEW
