5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Dual built-in hdmi on a mini-itx board was one of the bigger selling points for me, the wifi is a plus.
Like all motherboards now-a-days, has a large complement of features, and everything has been working perfectly (though I did have to manually clock the ram, see cons).

Cons: I'm not sure if it's the ram I used, or this motherboard (which is why I don't take away an egg), but it underclocked my ram from its advertised speed, I was able to use EasyTune to correct the voltage and speed, and it has been stable at 2133MHz with 1.6v.

I used: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2133 Memory, which is listed on the supported memory list on Gigabyte's website.

Other Thoughts: CPU ** AMD A8-6600K 3.9GHz Quad-Core Processor
MB ** Gigabyte GA-F2A88XN-WIFI Mini ITX FM2+ Motherboard
Ram ** G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2133 Memory
HD ** Seagate 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Hybrid Internal Hard Drive
Case ** Cooler Master Elite 130 Mini ITX Tower Case
PSU ** Corsair CX 430W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply
DVD ** Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer
OS ** Microsoft Windows 8.1 (OEM)(64-bit)

5 out of 5 eggsBest FM2+ Mini-ITX available

Pros: Easy setup
Perfectly fine motherboard layout
Feature Rich
Great price/performance with AMD APUs or an X4 with a dedicated GPU.

Cons: BIOS needed some tweaking

Other Thoughts: The primary complaint on this board seemed to be the BIOS update for Kaveri CPUs not being done out of box, which is no longer a problem and wasn't when I purchased this board in April.

Other complaints seem to be from people that did poor planning for a M-ITX build. Do your research and make sure your parts are compatible with each other and you shouldn't have any problems using this board.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Deal

Pros: Great Board for the price. The on-board wireless is perfect for being able to move the system when Wife wants to rearrange the living room.

Cons: I bought this mother board with the onboard Video and the CPU to match. But found that it is just not strong enough to suite my needs. Microsoft gave the onboard Video a performance score of: 5.4 on both Graphics and Gaming graphics, with new Video card I got: 6.8. I am not a big gamer and I am researching on how to get benchmarks. I will update once I get them and if I remember.

Other Thoughts: Part of my new Build:
- 850W Gaming 120MM Fan Silent ATX Power Supply SATA 12V
- Cooler Master Elite 130 - Mini-ITX Computer Case with Mesh Front Panel and Water Cooling Support

5 out of 5 eggsNice, solid little board

Pros: Great, solid little board. The construction quality is on par with my Sabertooth 990fx...supports fast and plentiful memory, at 64GB's...which, I don't think you could ever want even half of that in DDR3...DDR4, sure...

Cons: Only a 4+2 power phase system(4 CPU, 2 RAM). This makes casual OC'ng doable, but it's better than any other options out there right now...I believe the MSI board only has 4+1(4 CPU, 1 RAM), which makes it not as good for OC'ng memory.

Other Thoughts: I can't speak of the longevity of the board, seeing as I have only had it a week, but it's in my Raven RVZ01 case now and it's been pushing my 7850k at 4.2GHZ with ease, as of now.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent After F6 Bios

Pros: It is stable & runs my G-Skill 2400 Ripjaws with the 7850 APU great. I had trouble with early bios f4 & lower But it is great now!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought the board else where from someone who had trouble

5 out of 5 eggssending the 3rd one back

Pros: very nice layout
i cant knock the board yet, i need to get it to function first

Cons: This is the 3rd board that wont post into bios, the first board would not post at all. nor did any board have the updated f4 or even the f3 bios, the operating system installed with no problems, (windows 7 Ultimate). usb 3.0 not working either. swapped out the apu's with an a4, a6, a8, a10-5800k, and even tried the a10-7850k, (after updating to f4 bios) tried 3 different brands of ram also, still a black bios screen. i even installed an xfx r9 gpu to see if that would help. i used the @bios to flash the new bios from the file. not an issue doing that. my issue with this board is i cannot get into the bios screen to do any settings, it's just a black screen, I can hit the f10 / enter when the screen is black, and it will reboot. but to a black screen for the bios.
every part of this pc build is new, no used parts. I tested every part just to make sure everything functioned proper (on a bench)
I had this setup in an atx board, then the customer changed direction to the itx setup....i cannot get into the bios screen to do any settings..please chime in if you have this issue figured out ☻

Other Thoughts: This seems like it would be a great board, running window 7 Ultimate, everything in the windows experience is @ 7.9 score
the A10-7850k is running @ 34C i couldn't be happier with that.

1 out of 5 eggsthe 3rd board is also a dud

Pros: the layout is perfect for a bitfenix itx case with all the connections at the rear of the board.
Newegg have been great with the RMA's

Cons: this is the 3rd board that wont post into bios, the first board would not post at all. nor did any board have the updated f4 or even the f3 bios, the operating system installed with no problems, (windows 7 Ultimate). usb 3.0 not working either. swapped out the apu's with an a4, a6, a8, a10-5800k, and even tried the a10-7850k, (after updating to f4 bios) tried 3 different brands of ram also, still a black bios screen. i even installed an xfx r9 gpu to see if that would help. i used the @bios to flash the new bios from the file. not an issue doing that. my issue with this board is i can not get into the bios screen to do any settings, its just a black screen.

i had this setup in an atx board, then the customer changed direction to the itx setup....i cannot get into the bios screen to do any settings.. please chime in if you have this issue figured out, or could recommend a board that would work. ?☻

Other Thoughts: the Gigabyte help center is horrible, and refuse to believe that they are sending out boards with old bios on them.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board so far

Pros: This board is currently in my Mini-ITX build, it has performed flawlessly so far. I have yet to test out the gaming side of things just got it all setup again after changing the boot drive. Bought this board on a whim to complete my build.

Cons: Connections all over the place. Did have a problem with the USB 2.0 header not working but after reinstalling windows 7 and the drivers its back working again.
