    from completed build RX 480 FTW!!!

    Great looking, nice UEFI, but one star off for USB3.0 header. Right in the middle of the board, if I saw this before buying, would have gone for Asus Z170I Pro Gaming

    from completed build First Ever Build: The Manta Ray

    Has everything I could possible look for or for my needs. The wireless works fine, with full bars. And the bluetooth is top notch. The speaker stays connected even from about 30 feet away. It is the first motherboard I have ever owned, and it is working fine for me, and encountered no problems at all. The bios is also simple to navigate through.

    from completed build Don't hate my 2017 build!

    I would totally give a 5 stars if the port for the USB3.0 isn't so stupidly located.

    from completed build Mini ITX Cougar QBX Kaze

    Decent mini ITX motherboard, with lots of features (m.2, wifi, USB C, etc). Disappointing fan controls though - I am unable to use SpeedFan

    from completed build Maximum Overdrive

    A super sweet little , feature packed motherboard. Matches well with a g1 graphics card :)

    also it has great onboard sound.

    Had everything I was looking for in a motherboard. The only compromises are the internal USB 3 connection is placed in a bit of an awkward spot (not a problem if you go with water cooling though) and there is only one system fan header which supports 0.5 amps (x 12 volts = 6 watts). That was just enough for me to daisy chain 3 case fans off of.

    from completed build Tesseract - Mini ITX Powerhouse

    I really like the mobo - it has great features, the wifi and ethernet have both been super fast. The sound seems to be pretty good though I haven't tried any high-def audio. The Bios UI has been easy to use. If I want I can add a M.2 stick to the back of the board, but as I read more I found that there wouldn't be that much more of a performance boost it what I am doing over a regular SSD. Instead I saved a bit of money and got a 960Gb SSD instead.

    from completed build i3 6100 OC / GTX 970 mITX HTGPC

    Great layout, save for the USB 3 header, with every possible connection I could hope for, including USB C 3.1 with Thunderbolt 3! A full-size M.2 slot on the back is a nice treat, too.

    Subjectively, I love the aesthetic, and every piece of the board looks and feels well-made (backed up by the spec sheet in most cases).

    The AC wireless is top-notch, and the magnetic antenna is a welcome feature, although it makes my tower look a bit like an airplane (still deciding if that's good or bad).

    Great board, I love the wi-fi antenna that comes with it, the only downpoint is that usb 3.0 port on the middle of the board, pisses me off lol.
