Pros: Good layout
High quality components
Solid feature set
Cons: Tech support is a joke
Other Thoughts: The quality of construction and design is quite high. The layout makes sense to me and it was easy to work with. It has the basic features I was looking for and serves as a nice base for an ITX format AMD APU system.
On the minus side, I couldn't get the BIOS to update using the Q-Flash utility and sent in support request. The response parroted the documentation which is quite annoying. I eventually solved the problem using the @BIOS tool, but tech support was no help.
Note that if you want to use a FM2+ AMD chip you will have to have an FM2 chip around to boot it up and update the BIOS first. This is visible if you read the notes on the GIGABYTE website, but should be more prominent because that would be highly disappointing.
Overall, a nice board if you are willing to figure a few things out.
Pros: Looks good
Plenty of room
Cons: Larger than I thought
Other Thoughts: I've had good experience with SilverStone power supplies so I gave this a try and I'm not disappointed. The PSU has enough juice for a small system and the airflow in the case is very good. The fans seem quiet to me. There is a lot of room inside and it is a bit larger (taller) than I had thought. Construction is of decent quality and it is an unobtrusive design. Overall, a nice case that was worth the money.READ FULL REVIEW
