Pros: HDMI in/out, DP, DVI
Digital optical out, ALC1150 audio
Intel gigabit, wifi-AC
Cons: For my HTPC use, not a thing to complain about.
Other Thoughts: This board is the basis of my Windows Media Center+Plex mini-itx box that hides behind the TV and includes these other energy efficient components:
SIlverstone Milo ML06B mini-itx HTPC case
HDPlex 160w nano size fanless DC-ATX power supply
i3-4130T 35w TDP processor w/HD4400 graphics
2x Crucial Ballistix Tactical low profile 1.35v 1600@8-8-8-24 RAM
Avermedia Duet ATSC tuner + HDHomerun Prime cablecard tuner
Samsung 850 Pro 256gb SSD / 4TB WD AV-GP HDD
Inteset PC-IRS5-01 external IR receiver / INT-422 remote
Pros: Low noise, low profile
Silicon corner pads
No PWM "churning" noice.
Cons: Could they offer just the fan for $5 less?
Other Thoughts: I would never try to cool my 125W TDP FX-8350 with this fan. I got a 212 EVO for that right away. However, the 8350's cooler with this fan mounted on top of it does a real nice job on a mini-itx HTPC build with a 45W TDP A8-7600 APU.
Noctura's custom PWM IC suppresses the annoying PWM "churning" noise that other fans I tried had.

No cap to lose
Cons: Not that fast, but that's not why I bought this.
Other Thoughts: Newegg's combo deal for 3 makes them only 3 bucks each. Just what I was looking for. They hold enough for Windows ISOs or other frequently installed programs. My recent builds don't include optical disc drives.READ FULL REVIEW
