Stephen, Chelmsford

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Small form factor, easy to install and has the PCIe 16 slot so you can put in a high end graphics card if required.
Bad points:
The only downside to this and other micro boards is that there is no SATA 6 connection. So you can put in an SSD but it only transfers data at half its capacity. It is still quick but to get the full benefit one needs an ATX board with SATA 6 connections.

Jon, Eastbourne Engineer of Destiny

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This is such a great MoBo for the price!

It can run HD audio, supports up to 16 GB RAM, has several usb ports - two of which are 3.0.

I actually only bought this to replace my old MoBo - the exact same - which was fried in a lightning storm.
The MoBo is brilliant, it looks good, is well laid out, easy to install, supports enough to be part of quite a high spec machine, and is fairly cheap

Cant recommend enough!
Bad points:
Doesn't have Crossfire or SLR capability.

Could do with more USB 3.0 ports rather than just 2.0's.

Could somehow be lightning resistant!!!!!

.Grey, London

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
It has FOUR ram slots.
Bad points:
Old board with old design, and it's flawed as you cannot fit it in SFF cases even though the board has been allegedly made for them. Note also that this board has legacy SATA (3Gb/s instead of 6Gb/s)
