Pros: Very nice looking, excellent build quality, documentation and accessories all great. APU is faster than you probably think. Integrated GPU is quite capable with the right software. Looks amazing on a 120hz HDTV. Cons: Still expensive. A little too expensive for how long it's been out. Had the setup been completely painless the price might be acceptable. I also docked a star because my board arrived with an ancient BIOS chiseled by cavemen. Manufacturing date was summer of 2011. Some of ... the RAM on the QVL list did not work as advertised, notably Kingston KVR1333D3N9/4G. I bought 8 gigs to use 2gigs for the IGFX but the board would only post with one stick in either slot. Both just triggers the onboard RAM LED. Updated BIOS which is best done by downloading the update from ASUS's site. You will need to rename the file to E35M1ID.rom. After this is done, boot to BIOS in advanced mode and find the option to go to EZFlash, over on the far right menu. I know the manual says there are other ways to update BIOS, but trust me, this is the best way. BIOS 1404 supports this RAM and changes a few things. Even then you still may not be able to run 8gb of it, I had to use some Crucial Ballistix DDR3 to get the timings stable and then swap the RAM back in. I have it posting consistently now with the full 8GB of KVR1333D3N9/4G, but we will see how long that lasts. You should definitely consider some other type of RAM for this board, low profile or not. Ignore what the QVL list says, I have also had other ASUS boards that didn't like Kingston RAM... Other Thoughts: This mobo seems to want to OC without you asking it to. If you are getting strange issues or posting issues, try setting the OC function to manual, then manually entering the stock settings. BIOS is pretty otherwise. All fancy like. I built this into a HTPC with zero moving parts. Along with a Samsung 840SSD this PC runs at 65c with pretty much no delay for anything. Picture is just amazing on a new 120hz HDTV and sound is great too. In a hot climate or heavy use, a tiny heatsink fan is a good idea. More >

Pros: Great stability, small size, packed with features, very low power consumption. Cons: Runs hot. I picked out a bunch of parts to build a small fanless HTPC, and it required me to use a couple small case fans to keep it cool. I'd give it 5 stars if it wasn't for the heat issue, plus the cost, as some comparable boards can be found for ~$100. Other Thoughts: Installed the moterboard in a M350 case from mini-box.com. Has slight interference with the picoPSU and one of the memory slots, but I ... was aware of this, so I just purchased a single memory module. It did run very hot in this case though, due to relying on passive cooling. Having a couple quiet 40 mm case fans solves that though. I use it to run OpenELEC XBMC software, and it works great for that purpose. I have installed the OS to a CF card on a StarTech SATA to CF adapter. I've played a bunch of HD content, haven't found a file that it has problems with yet.k More >

Pros: a whole lot of features in one small board!! Low power consumption runs cool 5 SATA6 ports Cons: -Could be a little faster -Video drivers in ubuntu are useless for playing 1080p mkv files on this board. -price is high Other Thoughts: I originally bought this to handle windows 7 running XBMC and in the background having a virtual machine of ubuntu downloading all my stuff. It handles it well, but then i wanted to build an UnRAID server and have this run XBMC live. The problem is that ... this board does not do well running linux. Playing 1080p mkv files in xbmc live is horrible, not even watchable. However, if you run windows 7 and install the drivers, it performs well. As of right now, i have a different setup running xbmc and i use this board for UnRAID since it runs cool, and i can afford to run it 24/7 as a network file share. More >
