Great little motherboard

Pros: For the price this board looks good. Haven't had any problems with it.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It's a great budget board.

Maybe it was just the One I got

Pros: Decentboard but time will tell
NewEgg support was very responsive
2 eggs because of NewEgg's responsive support :)

Cons: CPU fan pin did not work. Had to plug it into the Antec power supply to get the CPU fan to work. Glad the PS had one of those connectors.
Maybe I got one that was made on a Friday afternoon of Monday morning??
*** Cannot stress enough not to use anything on the CD/DVD that comes with it***
After getting Windows 8.1 Prof up and running, I installed the items on the disk relating to the motherboard. After a restart or lack there of (it sat at the spinning dots for hours) I was able to do a Win 8.1 refresh which removed all that stuff from the disk I installed and she starts fine now.

Other Thoughts: After trouble shooting for over a day, I figured I would try just hooking it up to the PS. Bingo bongo!
I could RMA it but after all the time put in, it's working and hopefully stays that way for quite some time.
I will look at a different brand next time.
Asus has been good to me over the years so I will rule out Gigabyte from now on.

Good product on the combo deal

Pros: It worked

Cons: none that I can see

Other Thoughts: I got this on the sub $110 Combo deal with the Rosewill case and Athlon 5350. I needed a cheap office computer solution and that fit the bill nicely. This is a super basic MoBo, as the specs show. It was super easy to install and get up and running. The "directions" don't exist, but if you turn on a light and look at the board, and look at your cables it is pretty fool proof.

With the Athlon, some 1600 RAM and an SSD this made for a super snappy little office computer. At the price it was included with the combo it's a no brainer. Recommended.

Great value

Pros: - Board layout is nice
- Very feature-rich for the price
- Supports SPDIF (good for some media centers)
- Great fan control. You can make your system run nearly silent
- Seems to be very Linux-friendly

Cons: - Many BIOS features are completely useless. You can underclock the CPU, but you can't undervolt it. You can overvolt the CPU, but you can't overclock it. I was hoping to drop the voltage a little, for power-saving reasons.
- Not that I really needed it, but there wasn't much use for the manual at all.
- I'd much rather have DVI-D than VGA. But, a single HDMI port is all I *really* need.
- RAID support would've been nice.

Other Thoughts: I got this board for a home server. I found AM1 processors are the best combination in terms of price, performance, wattage, and available features. If I went for Intel, I'd get worse features while paying a higher premium without much of a difference in performance-per-watt. If I went for ARM, I would pay less and get a lower wattage, but I couldn't do a speedy and reliable RAID setup and I'd miss out on things like XAMPP.

If you use a single SSD, no expansion cards, and no frivolous USB devices, you could probably get your entire computer to run at 20W when idle. In my case, I have three hard drives (two of which are laptop drives connected to a PCIe RAID card), and a DVD burner and my system runs at around 32W idle and I have yet to see it breach 60W under load. Not bad by any means. I may consider getting a cheap SSD and a more power efficient PSU down the road. But for a ~$110 computer, this is fantastic.

Great board 4 a homebrew NAS

Pros: Low power consumption, little heat, pairs well with Kabini quad core 5350. Has all the amenities of a full ATX motherboard, just less of quantity of them.

Cons: None so far. I will report back after completing my NAS build.

Other Thoughts: Using it for a NAS with OpenMediaVault installed. Added 8 Gigs of ram, Kabini 5350, Artic Alpinte M1 CPU cooler, (4) 2TB drives and (3) 1TB drives. Raid 10 and Raid 5 respectively. Added (2) SYBA PCI express Sata 6 controllers just for the software raids too. Just ordered a new 500 Watt power supply as my old recycled 650 Watt was noisy as heck. All parts from Newegg of course. So far testing file transfer rates, additional services installed within OMV does not have any overall impact to the system. The rig does look promising...I will let you know after more stress testing of motherboard :)
