Pros: Lightning fast as expected. Can't beat the price. Great integrated graphics.
Other Thoughts: Got this to build an economical workstation for my local library. The system is very fast despite being on a budget. No need for a video card with Intel's integrated graphics, runs a HD widescreen monitor with no trouble at all.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: APEX MI-008 Black Steel Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case 250W Power Supply
Pros: Attractive design, compact and well built
Cons: Very low clearance between PSU and motherboard. The new Intel CPU coolers do not quite fit without shimming up the power supply.
Other Thoughts: The PSU fan and CPU fan end up being right on top of each other. They will pull in opposite directions and overheat the system unless you flip one of the fans around. I did that by opening the power supply (bye warranty) and reversing that fan so it would draw air in and blow it down on the cpu. Now my i3 idles around 38C which is still a little warm but acceptable.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ECS H61H2-I3 (v1.0) LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Excellent price, has everything onboard that you would typically need
Cons: First board was DOA, similar to a few other customer reviews. Newegg was great as usual and replaced the product in a timely manner.
Other Thoughts: I used this board to build an economical workstation for my local library. With a i3and 8GB of ram I was able to build it for under $400 thanks to this motherboard being so cheap.READ FULL REVIEW
