    from completed build NFC S4 MINI Rare Breed 4.3L

    All i have to say 2 m.2 in a small form itx motherboard is game changing. Amazing, the color scheme is on point with this board. I have very happy asus went with neutral colors. Overclocking is there and wifi. Really you get so much with this board it is stunning how they do this now and days. Plus the rgb is classy and not overdone at all.

    Great motherboard... only issue is that it doesn't have 2.0 headers!!

    Very pretty and performs well. I'm removing a star because I had to replace the first one for coil whine (on a motherboard? really?) during stress testing. Even the replacement board has a teeny tiny bit of whine during Prime95/Realbench, albeit less loud than the CPU cooler. Since I have another 30 days until my return policy expires, I may RMA it one more time to make absolutely sure, but if I don't then it's still fine.

    One of the easiest ITX layouts I've dealt with. Only thing in a funky spot is front audio.

    Overall a decent ITX board. Beware, there is an orange light that let's you know it is operating correctly. -1 for this because it throws off most color schemes.

    High quality as expected from ASUS!

    Solid board. Love it. Love the color scheme, the rgb lighting is in a great location and the second M.2 port is pure pleasure. Bios are just like any other Asus board and they get the job done. Would totally purchase this board again.

    Best mini itx motherboard you can get now. Full of features and it has two m.2 pcie slots on the motherboard. Good looks and the aura underglow is pretty cool.

    Note, the audio quality on this guy is not as good as the maximus viii impact. That one actually has a saber dac, like the rest of the modern maximus motherboards, which is actually a very good dac. This just has some cheap audio solution with Asus' software on top of it. I use an external dac/amp for my headphones, so not a huge issue, but if you're wanting to upgrade from a previous maximus board for added features and such, you'll get a very noticeable drop in audio quality from this.

    Great board with an overclocking potential of the much larger, and more expensive Apex. No USB 2.0 header for your AIO, but otherwise an absolute gem.

    from completed build Nano sRGB - small dev pc updated

    Lots of USB ports on the back panel. Two M.2 ports. Front mounted M.2 960 EVO has a few degrees less without heatsink. Great fan control.

    UPDATE: Changed rating from 5 to 4 because of 2 things: 1) Did not realize there is no USB 2.0 header, so you cannot connect most of fancy AIO or Air coolers. 2) Last BIOS update (812) causes system instability.
