Most Favorable Review
ASUS P5Q-EM LGA 775 Intel G45 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS P5Q-EM LGA 775 Intel G45 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: works great in a mythbuntu box. this is a good board for your linux media center. everything works out of the box including HDMI, and SPDIF. plenty of SATA connectors and a good overall layout.

Cons: as with all Intel chipsets if you plugin a external graphics card all onboad graphics are disabled, including HDMI.

Overall Review: have this in an Antec Fusion Remote case and couldn't be happier.

Pros: paired with Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste keeps my Q6700 quad a steady 32 c. no matter the load.

Cons: sharp fins! watch the fingers when your installing this baby.

Overall Review: despite what some other reviews say, I had no problems fitting this on my ASUS Striker Extreme MB.

Pros: all the bells and whistles that you could ever want. works flawlessly with my Q6700

Cons: back I/O panal is kinda flimsy, otherwise none if you put the right RAM in and configure the BIOS properly.

Overall Review: make sure you check the QVL before you buy memory as the 680i chipset has issues with some brands.
