I have been "out-of-the-loop" regarding PC hardware but I decided to build a mini system to get rid of the huge PC Case I had on the floor so I opted for a Mini-ITX system. The price was right on this Gigabyte board (I'm partial to Gigabyte). Specs, well, I wont talk about those but I will say that the board performs as expected.
2) Accepts newest Intel i3/i5/i7 gen 3 CPUs (no firmware updates needed)
3) Enough USB2/3 SATA2/3 ports for my use.
1) As most mITX motherboards, if you use the wrong cooler YOU WILL BLOCK the PCI-Express slot! Right now I'm using the stock Intel cooler :-(. The only 2 mini-ITX motherboards that are designed differently are: Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe and the new ECS Stinger Z77 mini-ITX board. I will probably try one of those in the future... not sure.
2) Overall board design is a bit iffy... I thought I was the only one but I read a review online (Anandtech I believe) and it seems I'm not alone in this.
Anyway, all in all I can't fault the design that much. My system works as it should and the board seems to handle everything well. Four solid stars!
** First "review" :) Yay! **
1: There is an included system speaker in the bag of assorted goodies (at least I am fairly certain it came with the motherboard, it could have been from the case). However, I have searched and searched, and cannot find a system speaker header on this board, not in the io panel header, not anywhere on the board. It would be nice to have a system speaker for running a headless server, to let you know that the bios has passed POST, but it's not an absolute necessity, and, while a headless server is probably not the intended market for this board, I think that its features will make it fairly common for that.
2: There are two HDMI ports and one DVI, but the bios cannot use the hdmi ports for output. I had hooked it up to a TV just so that I could configure the BIOS and do the initial installation, but it would not work. I had to find a DVI to VGA adapter and use a regular monitor instead.
Overall, I am happy with the purchase, and with running a 100% duty cycle, we will see what kind of durability this board has.
Also, with running Linux and using FFMPEG to encode videos for DVD, this board with its i3 beats my first generation i7 desktop hands down. I would think that video encoding would be much better on the multithreaded machine, since the GUI on Windows has an option to allow it to use all 8 threads, but the command line Linux version works significantly faster. Maybe better software, lower overhead, or ??. Either way, I'm extremely satisfied with this board
This is a really solid, robust mini-itx motherboard that is good for everything from mini servers to gaming pcs... but the odd graphical BIOS takes some getting used to. I'm more of an old school PC user and prefer text post screens and ASCII BIOS interfaces. Recently, Gigabyte has been including "3D BIOS" in all of their newer boards, which is a graphically heavy eye candy interface that is suited for mouse interaction. I find I can get things done faster using the keyboard and while there is no option to switch to a traditional BIOS interface, the sheer amount of BIOS configurability, true to Gigabyte tradition, more than makes up for it.
All of the clocking and voltage setting options are available to do everything from building a small form factor underclocked, undervolted silent power sipper, to an overclocked, voltage bumped gaming machine.
I really, really like the inclusion of dual gigabit LAN, which allows me to do NIC teaming, as I'm using mine as a miniature server. Load balancing and server use isn't something that is really considered on a lot of mini-itx boards that are also suitable for gaming, so it's nice to see everything in one package with this board. The external antennas, included Intel Centrino wireless adapter, dual gigabit lan, dual HDMI, and other features make this an incredibly feature rich board for not a lot of money. The only thing it is missing, that would make it perfect is an mSATA HDD slot.
Very good layout, with everything well placed. With an i3 3225 and PicoPSU 160, at stock voltages and speeds, it's only using around 14W at idle. Still happy with this board.
