My version didn't have WIFI, but only cost £61.82 after cashback. This is a really well-designed Mini-ITX board with many high-end features: SupremeFX audio, Intel 1219-V LAN, M.2 socket with 4xPCIe 3.0/NVMe, Fan Expert 2+ and so on. Unusually, there is a Water Pump header in addition to CPU and Chassis fan headers. All have selectable PWM or DC control. I used the Water Pump header for the front fan

The layout is excellent with all major connectors on the back edge. The PCIe socket is well clear of the memory slots and the CPU socket has plenty of clearance all round. Be aware though that the M.2 socket is on the rear of the board and not accessible when the board is installed.

The LED lighting was quite restrained but no doubt will appeal to some.

Lots of Z features for less, good quality.

So far so good. Has a cool customizable RGB LED strip along one side. Has a WIFI adapter antenna with a magnet to attach to the top or side of the case. No coil whine, unlike the MSI counterpart that I had originally purchased.

Great motherboard, the wifi is fast the LEDs are pretty and the layout is pretty good.

Love the way it looks, and is running great. WiFi attachment works nicely as expected.

Sleek and friendly BIOS, AI suite software with smart fan control, RGB LEDs with breathing effect, comes with LEDs that diagnose boot errors (tells you which of CPU/RAM/OS fails to boot), uses Intel Gigabit Ethernet instead of Realtek/Killer.

The WiFi worked without needing any drivers or plugging in the antenna, which was a godsend as the Ethernet required drivers but I didn't have a CD drive to install them from the included CD.

Decent motherboard, setup was a breeze, wifi is decent. Soundcard blew way past my expectations. However, in the 6 months of me owning this one of the two connrctors for the wifi broke and one of the back USB ports no longer work.

RGB mother board in small form factor. Beware of incompatible with some cooler that have backplate

Despite the lights on the right side of the mobo, this thing runs COLD. At gaming load in my non airconditioned room, this runs between 30 to 40 degrees celsius on a hot summer day.

I love this board, except that it has the second fan header down by the audio header (the first supports a pump) and like all ITX boards with higher end models all the ports face up. The RGB edge is very simple to customize but cables block 1/3 of the light visible from the top case vent. I grabbed a 6" SATA cable to help management.

Supposedly this model shipped new from Asus has the newer BIOS, 0501, but Amazon sells the board with 0402 which does not support Kaby Lake. I ended up getting a second board sent to me by Amazon (no charge) to see if that had teh new BIOS. I also ordered (and returned) a g4400 which I used to update to 0501 and the 7500 ran great from there.

Setup was easy with this board. IMO the board layout is key to an easy ITX build with US 3.0, fan headers, SATA ports, etc all along the edge this board does well. Plus I'm a sucker for red and black.
