Great little motherboard. Has worked well the year and a half.
I tried out three boards from Microcenter...I tried the gigabyte + Asrock mini itx z97s...both were okay but this Asus is polished. From the Bios to the support and the placement of ports on the motherboard it is perfect. Mini itx because of its size has to give up some things that larger boards have...But with a cpu and two case fan headers this thing is well done. I would have appreciated six sata ports instead of 4, but I plan to add a M.2 at some point which further gives this board exceptional customization.
a very nice layout mini itx board for high compatibility air cooling.
A bit pricey for what it is, but it can take full length 2080 or 2060 M.2's.
Has everything I wanted in a Broadwell supporting mITX motherboard; overclocking, M.2 port, built in WiFi, and good fan speed control, brilliant.
A bit more expensive than I wanted, however it's UEFI BIOS is amazingly versatile, but above all else makes overclocking simple for novices like me, A host of utilities make is easy to overclock the board without have to leave the OS.
Has all the features I'm looking for, clean looking BIOS, very sexy.
Great board for the money. Ram is a little close to the CPU, had a bit of an issue mounting a fan to my heatsink. Otherwise you can definitely see that this was made very well. I expect this to last quite a long time, and I only just got it.
While the mini-itx form does limit multiple GPUs, amount of RAM, number of fan headers, SATA drives, and so on, this mobo is very well made and does feature a M.2 slot (albeit hidden on the rear of the board, requiring a full removal should I ever go down that road) and a very good, very fast, dual band wifi card. It's odd that many full-sized mobos don't come with a wifi card, so another plus for the mini-itx form.
Has every feature I've been craving for the last 5 years. 4 sata ports and an m.2 port if needed. Asus does really well with drivers, I only had a few small hiccups and I think they were Windows 10 related anyway. Bios is very clear and only one page.
