Pros: Excellent price for its capabilities, tested pretty good. HDMI produced excellent video. Setup was very easy.

Cons: Only has 2 SATA slots and both are filled. Case is too small for any dual graphics card, Putting a 2nd memory DIMM will require removing the CPU fan. Rear connections are limited.

Other Thoughts: Would be outstanding for kids computer where add-ons are not wanted. Quick, light and inexpensive.

Pros: Best performance to price on the market for what I do in photography (not a gamer). The BIOS can be flashed over the inet, and is the best BIOS I have ever seen. Overclocking is very simple and system is running very stable. Excellent layout for what I need. I will do more tests later to see if any more ram will be needed, but at this point I don't think it will be necessary. it is extremely fast. I will update again when my M.2 comes in and is tested.

Cons: CMOS caused system not to boot initially. See Other!!!!

Other Thoughts: If you are going to an i7 board I definitely will give this a recommendation. If Gaming, you may want more bells and whistles. VERY IMPORTANT: If your initial start-up hangs, and the VGA LED stays lit, remove the power and then remove the CMOS battery and clear the CMOS. Put the battery back in, connect the power and restart FIRST! I did this last and went thru every other testing option there was before I did this and wasted a lot of time.
