This review is from: ASUS P8H61-M LE/CSM R2.0 LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: My first Mini ATX board. Booted right up after installing Sandybridge CPU.
Cons: (1) The mobo initially had been difficult to install in my case. For example, the video card would not make full contact with PCI-E socket unless I took the board out of the case & installed the card first. But it's possible that my case isn't designed for smaller mobos to begin with. (2) No SATA-600 ports, just SATA-300. But then again, this is a MINI ATX motherboard, hehe! (3) AMI UEFI BIOS. VERY layered, unlike the more streamlined BIOS of regular, ATX boards.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Boots right up on ASRock Z77 Extreme 4. Had to manually adjust BIOS to 2400 with no hassles.
Cons: None.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Easy to set up. Booted right up. Can OC to a stable 4.4 Ghz using an Ivy Bridge CPU.
Cons: AMI UEFI Bios. Very layered. Took me a good week before I could maneuver around settings. Then again, I'm been using Award Bios's for many years, hence the learning curve. No other issues to report, such as faulty USB ports.
Other Thoughts: My first AsRock board. Hopefully, this 3 yr. old board will last the warranty period.READ FULL REVIEW
