Pros: I am using this board for NAS. So far working great with no issues.
Cons: I thought this board should have very low idle power consumption based on the specs. I have 27 Watts at Idle with just 4GB memory installed with picopsu. That is kind of high for todays standards.
The processor heatsink does not completely touch the processor die. This was causing the temps to hover around 70-80C idle. I had to remove the padding under the Heatsink for it to touch the die completely. The thermal pound was applied on the wrong side under the heatsink. I have to move it so it touches the proessor die. Now the temps are 40C idle..
PCI Express is not MSATA compatible. That would have saved me one SATA port for attaching additional HDD for NAS.
