Sturdy Quirk Board 8/6/2020 9:57:37 AM

Pros: - Decent VRMs
- Silent VRM fans
- Thunderbolt 3 JHL7530 onboard
- Noctua NH-C14S + NCase M1 clearance
- Unlocked CNVI Wi-Fi port
- 2x M.2 ports
- High quality ALC1220 audio

Cons: - Strange VRM layout (with fans)
- Strange "daughter" card with odd SATA port orientation
- Impossible to remove rear I/O without damaging the PG Logo Plate
- No USB Type-C Header

Overall Review: Really overall fantastic board. Very glad I went with it! Hackintosh's really well, and runs Windows flawlessly. Supports a wide range of RAM speeds and settings, and the BIOS voltage regulation is accurate. Fits in an NCase M1 with a Noctua NH-C14S which was a MUST for me! If you don't need either an Unlocked CNVI Wi-Fi port nor Thunderbolt 3, go for the Gigabyte Z490I Aorus Ultra ITX. Fantastic board as well, but lacks those two features.

Good electrical and bios design, but physical implementation may be an issue. 7/5/2020 10:42:48 AM

Pros: • Good electrical & bios design, great support for the Intel 1200.
• Has Thunderbolt 3 / USB C combo port
• Good VRM implementation
• Active chipset cooling, but audible.
• One of only 2 ITX Z490 solutions with Thunderbolt.
• Good fan and bios support, CMOS reset
• More front panel USB ports than some other boards

Cons: • Hard to see in photo, but it has a riser next to the PCI x16 slot. This may impact some cooling solutions such as the H1 radiator fan or larger fan solutions. If the riser card is removed, you loose the front M2, 2 x SATA, 2 x USB.
• Chipset fans are audible.
• As with many Socket 1200 boards, Universal CPU heat sync brackets may require trimming of the other CPU/AMD tabs to avoid impacting surface mount components including the rear M2 Socket.
• No USB C header on motherboard

Overall Review: I received this board missing the memory guides on the side closet to the video card, both slots were missing the guide with just a hollow hole where they should be. I returned the board for this defect. This is not a board for the H1 chassis, the fan on the radiator will impact the I/O riser card as it is quite tall and in an unusual location between the CPU and PCI slot. This board also does not have a USB C header, they instead opted to put the ports on the front panel as SS 10 A USB ports. As I noted, the chipset fan is audible, not bad, but audible if you have an otherwise silent system.
Other than the minor defect and questionable design, this board is a solid performer and otherwise well designed. If the design choices are a non-issue in your implementation, and your chassis does not have a USB C header, this board may work well for you. I subtracted 1 star for the defect and 1 for the design.

Not NZXT H1 Compatible 6/22/2020 10:15:05 AM

Overall Review: This mobo is not compatible with the NZXT H1 case. The sister IO expansion card will prevent the case from closing. Removing the expansion card will result in a lost of multiple inputs including the ability to have two M.2 cards and will force you to install the M.2 on the back of the mobo. However, you can't install the M.2 on the back of the mobo unless you dremel away part of the NZXT H1 cooler mounting bracket. Would have returned the mobo if newegg didn't charge restocking fees.
