Pros: Its small and appears sturdy.
Cons: Never received their $15 rebate, and from the other reviews, it appears that they are notoriously bad in sending them out.
Cable to the HDD LED on the front panel appeared snapped. I had to splice a cable in there manually.
The front display is cool, only if you are a geeky teenager, the information on it is pretty useless.
It has fan vents on both sides, so you can't put this case against the wall
Other Thoughts: I can't describe this case by words other than "shiny and stupid". The fan vents on both sides basically rule out possibility of ever putting the case on a side. The ripped cable to the HDD LED made ma do about 30 min of work, but if I would fill out the RMA form, it would likely take even more time. This was not a good purchase and I don't recommend it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS H81M-A LGA 1150 Intel H81 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
supports Intel 4600 graphics
Cons: doesn't have connector for USB 3.0 front plate
Other Thoughts: I bought 3 of these for low budget PCs and absolutely love them. First of all, for roughly $60, its a great MB. Its supports Intel graphics 4600 which is better then most under $100 video cards. I trust its ASUS quality. mATX form factor allows it to be placed into small cases. Using this motherboard, i am able to build PCs under $500 with i5 CPU, 8gb RAM, and SSD drive, with reasonable video card which can play games on medium graphics setting.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS P8H61-M LE/CSM R2.0 LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Its a small factor stable board with built-in support for intel CPU based video processor HD4600.
Cons: none (unless this board will break within the next few years)
Other Thoughts: I built a budget PC for my son for his homework (and maybe occasional game) The micro ATX factor allows this board to fit into a small case, such the a computer doesn't take space like a centerpiece in the bedroom. The board, and the build in general has so far proven be a reliable setup under Windows 7. I have put I5 CPU on it with HD4600 graphics and 8GB ram. Video performance is descent enough to play games like World of Tanks on the medium resolution, which I find pretty good for a Intel Graphics.READ FULL REVIEW
