GIGABYTE GA-B85N-WIFI LGA 1150 Intel B85 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good bios. Good spacing from RAM and especially PCIe slot. Decent features for price. The wifi works well.

Cons: Some of the connections (front panel especially are in inconvenient places, even for such a small board. Only one system fan input (but that can be expected on many of these boards)

Other Thoughts: This is my first Gigabyte mobo, and my first mini-itx board. I was pleasantly surprised by the simple to navigate Bios. The board has good spacing between CPU and PCIe, better than the GA-H87n and GA-Z87n, which allows relatively larger heatsinks. This board posted right away, and has decent specs for the price. The wifi so far seems to outperform the built in wifi in my ASUS-Z87-pro boards. The biggest downside is that in some mini-itx cases the heatsink must be installed before the mobo goes in the case. This makes it difficult to route and connect some of the connections, especially the front panel connectors.

ASUS Z87-PRO LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Simple to install.
Great Bios.
TPU overclock is simple and works well.

Cons: I cannot think of any cons at the moment. It's a great mobo.

Other Thoughts: I bought a second one of these for another build after experiencing how simple and easy the first build was with this mobo. I overclocked the CPU using the ASUS software, and it has been stable ever since.
