Flashing the BIOS to the latest version didn't solve either problem.
Eric L.
The future is here when they can put so much power a versatility into such a small board and it is an Asus.

If you're looking for a good basic motherboard for a SFF build this is it.

With the exception of the WOL bug I will describe below, this is actually a great motherboard for most things that people needing a mini ITX form factor that supports Haswell chips. For the price, it is very reasonable.

The bug is only present when WOL is enabled in the BIOS (Onboard>APM>Power on by PCIE). The machine will NOT stay shutdown when you power it off. In other words, execute a shutdown, machine goes down, fans and HDD stop spinning. The board will turn on by itself approx. 4-5 sec after the shutdown. Disabling WOL in the BIOS seems to ablate this behavior. At the time I write this review, the current BIOS version offered by Asus is 1005 which I am running. I have tried resetting the factory settings in the BIOS but the bug persists. I have verified it under several Linux and Unix distros which use (various init systems) including: Arch, Fedora, FreeNAS, Gentoo, and Ubuntu.

I have been in email contact with Asus about this issue but they are refusing to acknowledge it which makes getting a fix difficult. If you google around for this problem, you will see this particular model mentioned as well as others. Consensus among users is that the bug lies in the UEFI firmware but this is just speculation.

Another bug worth mentioning will be present if the boot disk lacks a UEFI Shell.efi. In this situation, the BIOS falsely warns you that secure boot is enabled and cannot boot without either adding a key or disabling secure boot. This needs to be corrected to simply state that no valid UEFI shell can be found. Can mislead novice UEFI users.

Summary: If WOL is a feature you need, look elsewhere. If you plan to keep WOL disabled, this is a great purchase.

I purchased this board for a very low power home lab Hyper-V server. I needed lots of SATA and USB 3.0 ports, and this board delivers on those counts. I set up tiered storage with 6x160GB SSDs and 4x2TB portable laptop drives. Running with an i3-4130T 35W processor, 16GB low voltage RAM and a high-efficiency power supply nets a total power draw of ~30W at idle.

One star is removed for a few minor points:
1) Network chip is annoying and somewhat obscure. Intel provides official 2012 R2 drivers on their website for this exact chip, yet the installer would not detect it, nor would Windows see the driver as being compatible. I forced the issue and that did work.
2) Price. This board is small and low on component counts and only comes with a book, disc, back plate and 2 SATA cables. I think the price is about $35 too high for what I'm getting.
3) BIOS update procedure is a bit harder than it needs to be. You can copy the BIOS file to a USB thumb stick or browse the hard drive for the file, but it will not accept it unless you run another program first that renames the file. How stupid is that. Other companies simply provide a Windows executable that you can run with 2 clicks and you're done.
4) My USB 3.0 WD 2TB portable drive would not work AT ALL with this board until I updated the BIOS. Whatever happened to standards???

UPDATE: 3/31/14
Ended up with 2x160GB Intel G2 SSDs for boot mirror (and VMs), 2x240GB Intel G3 SSDs + 2x4TB WD RED for the hybrid array. Storage spaces buffers almost all writes to the SSDs so I needed faster ones to keep up. Also got tired of the USB drives spinning down all the time. The system has been running for 4+ months 24x7 and I've only had one unexplained crash and reboot. It happened during a nightly backup. I have had the WD 3TB USB 3.0 drive used for backups freeze before, but this time it seemed to cause a BSOD. Otherwise everything has been working great.

Overall this is a good motherboard. Seems to be well built with good features. It worked perfectly out of the box with a Core i74770S and DDR3-1600. Rather than repeat the product specs I will confirm this is a good motherboard, and then note the issues I have with it.

Missing eSATA port. This motherboard has 6 internal SATA ports, that is a high number for a mini-ITX board. With that many ports you could use this board to build a NAS/Storage server. I would prefer 4-5 internal SATA ports and 1 eSATA port. Perhaps they expect with the advent of USB3 eSATA is not needed, however many of us have external eSATA drives.

Flashing power LED while on standby. This is by far the most annoying thing with the motherboard. If I knew of this problem I probably would have bought another brand. The problem is when in standby/sleep the power LED pulses on and off. It is very annoying especially in a dark room. It caused me to cover most of the power LED so it is almost impossible to see.

Graphics Overclocking is either missing or difficult to find. When you read the instructions on the ASUS BIOS it indicates that the BIOS supports graphics overclocking. I am not able to find this feature. Perhaps it is not available on this particular board and the documentation is wrong, or it is hidden somewhere I cannot find.

Of these issues it is surprisingly the power LED problem that would cause me to purchase a different board the next time. The support forums are filled with complaints and people trying to find workarounds for this problem.

I would not buy this product again unless I was building a small high powered storage server that is always on.
