Capable motherboard in small form factor

Good quality giving sufficient flex when building on a tight small case. This only has one port for case fan. Pin specifications are not included on manual for case power switches but available online.

Another good Asus mobo

Bought this to replace an 11 year old Asus P5K premium that has worked perfectly - so Asus is the natural choice, and this is the third Asus mobo I have bought in the last year from PB. All have been easy to setup and worked first time. This model is more of a budget mobo but has all most would need. Only snag is that connecting the front panel connectors for power, reset HD LED etc is not that clear in the manual but the info required is easy to find online. Great for the price and as always top service and knowledgable staff in Tauranga.

Fit for purpose

Well made, well featured motherboard for new AMD Athlon / Ryzen CPU's. It is not intended for high end gaming builds. As a simple server/desktop mobo it is more than fit for purpose. N.B. onboard 'RAID' is not hardware RAID but some horrible Windozy fake software RAID. Disable & use Linux's own software RAID.
