Pros: As small cases go, this can handle most any setup. Just need to make an ITX for a client that had a long front-to-back area but not much height. this fit the bill AND it wasn't expensive. Plenty of room to upgrade. I used an Asrock H170M-ITX/DL with the Intel i5-6400. ONE MAJOR NOTE. if you use this set up use win 10. Apparently the new motherboard/chip set wont recognize the win 7 set up for USB ports with out having to do an elaborate sub-setup! Your USB mouse/keyboard cant be use without this sub-setup (unless you have a PS/2 mouse/keyboard)
Cons: The ON/Reset button is the SAME button! You press the top for ON and the bottom of the button for Reset. Can get confusing if you not looking directly at it!
Other Thoughts: Just a tip. Remove the small black side fan first, then leave it off. Make it the last thing you put in the case! It gets in the way of other installations! I like the idea of the rubber grommets for the hard drives, better yet the CORRECT screws to go with it!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice Solid ITX board. Nice layout. Easy to place equipment I used it in a Elite 130 case by Cooler Master. Has all the necessary amenities from general work to gaming. It even contains a WiFi bracket!
Cons: Only have one con, Because of the bios setup, The newest 1151 CPU/Chip set apparently doesn't like win 7 USB ports. You need to jump though hoops to use Win 7 with this set up. However it works perfectly with Win 10.
Other Thoughts: If you want a small footprint computer with big performance this will fill the bill. and at a price that wont brake the bank!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 10 Home - 64-bit
Pros: A bit faster than 7,
Cons: I bought this so its not the "upgrade". Built a brand new machine just for this. It seem a lot of drivers don't work in this new OS I have yet to sort them out but it is annoying to have a whole bunch of error messages pop up saying driver failed. Less ability to get to an area were you can change some settings without having to get permission or jump though hoops. Need more time to get things straight
Other Thoughts: Not completely happy with Win 10 as a desktop OS but may try it on a touch screen laptop. Seems to be a bit less graphics intensive.
As to its ...better than Win 7, 8.0, 8.1,...the jury is still out!
