An ASRock socket 1150 mini-itx board; I've used ASRock in my last two builds, my first being an ATX i7-2600k and now an ITX i7-4770k. This board will be used in a HTPC/Steambox for my living room.
I was going for an absolutely silent build, and I'm happy to report that this motherboard does not emit any buzzing or other noise at all.
Comes with your standard accessories, I bought it so I could take advantage of the displayport connector and future proof myself when I eventually buy a 4k television.
Built in bluetooth made my life a lot easier when I needed to connect a keyboard/remote for HTPC usage.
Build quality is great, as ever. Power over IP is useful for starting up with my phone.
Currently running Windows 8.1 w/ Start8 and XBMC.
None so far.
