Shuttle SH87R6 Intel 4th Generation Core i3/i5/i7 Intel Socket LGA1150 Intel H87 1 x HDMI Barebone
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Well made little box - nice and tidy inside - comes with a liquid cooler for the CPU, so I have yet another Intel-supplied CPU fan to decorate my office with. Plenty of USB ports front and back.

Cons: There is something fishy going on with the keyboard input. I've set this up as a dual-boot Linux/Win 8.1 box, and no matter which O/S is running, keyboard input frequently "buffers up", so to speak. It's almost like typing on an old mechanical TTY terminal (yes, I've done that) except it will sometimes sit there for 30 seconds after you've pressed the keys before anything shows up on the screen. I swapped my wireless keyboard for a hardwired mechanical one - same problem. The only thing left that could be causing this is the mobo.

Other Thoughts: I'd happily give this 5 eggs if it weren't for the keyboard input issues. While I can't be 100% sure it's the mobo, I've swapped out everything else and the problem persists. It's intermittent enough that the machine is still usable, but still happens several times an hour.

ASUS P8Z68 DELUXE/GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: When it works - very fast & lots of ports for everything.

Cons: First board RMA'd for RAID failures (disks & cables known good from another installation). Second board now has bluescreens. I've built a fair number of systems using ASUS components, and never had a problem until now. Of course, I went 2 days over the 30-day newegg time limit for returns, so had to deal directly with ASUS on this. What a PITA! "Slow" doesn't begin to describe their level of service. Definitely going to be trying out other vendors after this.
