Pros: I have it running a G4400 Pentium, and CORSAIR Vengeance DDR4 2133, and it is all very fast. Skylake is great.
Cons: None so far.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock AM1B-ITX AM1 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Has 4 sata ports which makes it better as a file server, and it supports 16GB ram. The AM1 socket allows upgrades, the board has a TPM Header, and it comes in a small form factor. It also has DVI and HDMI connectors. With the right network card, a 1.6GHz 5150 apu can support 1179175 pps or 70 MB / second.
Cons: The motherboard itself (PCB) is very thin and flexes a lot when installing ram or the power connector, so be careful. The PCI-e slot is only x4, but I that's what all AM1 boards have, so its not ASRock's fault.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Low power use, true x86_64 cpu thats fast enough to do some real work. Holds 32GB of ram, and you could use it as a KVM virtual machine host, but its likely too slow for most guests. Works great as a firewall or file server, or even a basic desktop.
Cons: I've purchased one of these and two of the ECS KBN-I/5200 AMD A6-5200 Quad Core, and they have all died after a few months of light use. I usually never have problems with ECS motherboards, but I think from now on I'll buy other brands.READ FULL REVIEW
