Tremayne, London

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good quality board with wifi and dual hdmi is good feature. The ability to be overclocked altho i havn't yet tried with I5 3570k. Will always recommend gigabyte for high quality boards value for money
Bad points:
The lack of fan outputs. This is solved with a 3pin splitter so my advise is to grab one of them before you purchase if you plan to have intake and exhaust fans. Installed this board into a Bit Fenix case

Alan, Pinner Prolific computer user.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
It was a bit different to previous motherboards in that I couldn't find where to plug in the 4-pin "speaker"/beeper but in every other way it did/does what I wanted. I picked a low power processor (i3-core) and an expensive, low profile processor fan, a very quiet power brick and now have a near silent media centre. I am delighted with it.
Bad points:
This will vary with the case i is in but the two pin power button lead was too short to reach the front of the case, but it is the standard length. I just soldered two together. No big deal.

Mark, Glasgow

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great for SFF build, all essentials included.

Get a 3570K/3770K and overclock simply on the multipliers and you have a very nice little system.

As a Bonus OSX can be installed with little fuss.
Bad points:
No mSATA which would make this perfect for great SFF build.
