Pros: This is a little gem. Small, low power, up to date chips, 16 Gig of memory is plenty for my Win 8.1 set up. It is so small it seems like it is hiding out in my tower case but it fits perfectly and the fan is always on slow silent mode. I have gone small the last two times and I don't regret it. No longer have to worry about heat and noise. This thing is quicker than I imagined. I'm not a gamer so I have plenty of power to run 6 or 8 apps all the time as well as listen to the internet radio stations. I am a happy camper!
Pros: My former experience with Gigabyte and their former reputation
Cons: I have had nothing but trouble with this motherboard.since I got it in April or May of 2014. Blue screens of death for no apparent reason. Reinstalled new operating system three times, The hard drive was new but just to be safe, I bought two new hard drives and set them up in RAID array. Had two 8 Gig sticks of ram and took one out to see if it was because of too much RAM. Still failed, cycled repeatedly yesterday and now will not start at all. Is it the power supply? (Gigabyle 550 watt) or is it the motherboard? I will be buying a different brand of mother board and power supply just to try and avoid the problems. My reputation is now on the line with my employees and family (many late nights!)
