I still love these boards and have used them for several more builds. I have found that downloading Gigabyte App Center from their website once the computer is all setup allows for super easy BIOS updates. I have noticed the computer is even more stable (especially with Windows 10) after updating BIOS through this utility.
I have used this board for 5 different builds so far. Each of them is performing very well. I build computers for business users who want high end, fast computers but do not need the gaming features such as overclocking and graphics. My last personal build scored a 3496.7 on Passmark's benchmark test completely stock with no tuning. (See specs in photos.)
M.2 SSD - FAST!!! (1996MBs read 1275MBs write.)
Socket 1151 (Intel's 6th Gen Processors)
Supports triple display with VGA - DVI - HDMI outputs (4k support on HDMI)
Supports DDR4 up 2133MHz (Faster DDR4 may be compatible but will be capped at 2133MHz)
Surround Sound 7.1 Channel
4 X USB 3.0 and 2 X USB 2.0 on rear panel
Build/parts list: All products are completely compatible as a completely stock build without any tweaking required. (prices are as of 5/24/16)

Although it's not on the official "compatible" list, I am using a the Samsung 850 EVO 500 GB M.2 3.5-Inch SSD (MZ-N5E500BW) M.2 drive and haven't had any issues with it. Because of the small form factor most of the mini-ITX boards have placed the M.2 drive on the back of the mother board. The downsides of this design is that for some cases you will have to take the mother board completely out of the case to service the drive and it might restrict airflow to the drive. So far I haven't had any temperature issues with my drive but it's something to consider for these smaller builds.
The only other complaint I have with this board is that the USB3 header connector is too close to the processor so if you add any type of decent heatsink it might interfere with the header. For the 304 and the Hyper 212 Evo it was a tight fit but I was able to make it work without having to add a slimmer extension cable. It seems that all of the Gigabyte 170 mini-ITX boards have this issue.
Overall this seems to be a solid board with a good set of features all packed into a small form factor.
a. The HTPC size should considerably the same size as my AV receiver. When I search
on Internet I come to know that HTPC cases which accommodates miniATX, miniITX mother boards that is suitable for my space.
b. Also I have 7.2 Ch home theater system and decided that the mother broad should have 7.1 Ch output with 4 K Video support over HDMI.
c. I want to upgrade the RAM later and want 4 DIMM slots.
d. If I want to upgrade the storage then I should have option to add internal hard drive inside the case.
e. Don't want to over clock the CPU and decided to go with H170 intel chipset motherboard with 1151 socket.
f. Front panel USB
g. Economical but don't want sacrifice the features
Considering all the above I compared Asus, Gigabyte, ASRock and cost and feature that I was expecting I end of choosing the below parts
1. Motherboard: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B012N6LM1Y?ref_=pe_584750_33951330
This above mother board is a MicroATX board has 4 DIMM slots. This H170 intel chipset with 1151 socket board has HDMI with 7.1 Ch Audio and 4K video support along with 2 more display ports for computer monitor. Totally 3 display support. Doesn't have WIFi and Bluetooth and will not support over clocking.
2. Case : http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004EMSH9Q?ref_=pe_584750_33951330
This case supports MicroATX mother board and comes with 300W FlexATX power supply and one case fan. The case is strong and good quality has space for CD drive and internal hard drives. The power supply cpu connector has only 4 pin, Still it is suitable for the mother board's CPU's 8 pin connector(just plugged in only 4 of 8 pin)
3. CPU: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0136JON7M?ref_=pe_584750_33951330
The above CPU is Intel's 6th generation processor, Supports gaming and 4K video. This CPU comes with the Intel cooler. I think we no need any third party cooler for my purpose.
4. DDR4 RAM: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MMLUYQK?ref_=pe_584750_33951330
As per the above mentioned motherboard that supports only DDR4 on 4 slots, better to go with DDR4 which will give faster processing of the application tasks. I bought 8+8 2 DDR4 RAM as above and kept in 2 slots for now, later I can upgrade to another 8+8 DDR4 RAM later when price drops. Mother board manual says there 4 DIMM slots supports up to 64 GB, But the processor manual says it supports 32 GB max. So I decided to stick with 32 GB max.
5. SSD M.2:http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NY4VIPA?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s04
The above SSD is very tiny and go with mother board itself with m.2 connector. For better booting and rebooting and faster application response M.2 SSDs are very good and this is latest compare with SATA/eSATA.
6. Operating System - Ubuntu 15 (Linux based)
This OS is free and open source. It has nice look and navigation. No need to install any driver software for the above components or motherboard. The OS detects all of them fine. The media player comes with the OS doing great and able to install and play with Kodi and Plex.
