5* Great for Linux
Reviewed by Glen on 04/03/2015
Used this with Debian Linux and with Mint and have not had any problems with it as described in previous review.

I did install Windows on it and had a couple of crashes but that turned out to be a problem with the anti-virus software. Once everything was updated it worked fine.

Seems to run much faster with Linux though so prefer to use that - have been using it with a PCI-E satellite receiver as my main HTPC for a while now and have no complaints! Great motherboard.
3* Jury is still out
Reviewed by Malcolm on 17/09/2014
Purchased this for installation into a case for a home media server given the low power consumption specifications. Installed windows Home Server 2011 and set up the computers etc - Machine has constantly crashed, occasionally with BSOD. POST beep code suggested video, so no running with monitor connected rather than headless. Other BSOD suggests network issue (has dropped of the network several times) or memory. The ram has been swapped out but still the thing reboots on a daily basis. Re-installing the OS didn't resolve the issue, so not sure if this is a hardware issue or caused by the bloatware that gets installed as part of the driver installation process. For £23 it's hardly worth the hassle and cost to pack it up and return it to BT. If the problem continues I'll replace it with a different manufacture such as Gigabyte or Biostar.
