Pros: Low power draw
Low temps with stock cooling. I'm currently running some distributed computing software on it and its reporting room temp (74F)
Performs better than Atom
Relative low cost
Cons: Needs to be a bit cheaper
Single channel memory
No overclocking but its not supposed to be OC'd anyways
Graphics are a tad weak but ok for something like Bastion
No word on whether or not Beema is compatible with the AM1 socket
Other Thoughts: The price of this and a mobo are within the region of a Haswell Celeron and mobo. However as a low power solution, you won't find better than this.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-Z87-HD3 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Stock settings sort of work as intended. Decent for anyone with a non-k CPU that may want to Crossfire later.
Cons: Was the sole purpose of numerous BSODS before a UEFI update.
Other Thoughts: Doesn't like OCing either, but will happily underclock my CPU to 800MHz at 1.2 volts. Kind of odd that it has OCing options that do this.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's cheap. Faster than anything VIA has to offer right now. 2 USB headers for 6 USB ports total.
Cons: The integrated graphics system sucks horribly. No reset CMOS jumper. One ram slot, though it's no big deal.
Other Thoughts: The SiS chipset was a horrible idea. You can't listen to music and play a Genesis game in full screen at the same time without dropped frames. Unless you will use this board as a server, get a graphics card.READ FULL REVIEW
