I've gotten this board working great as a Hackintosh (search tonymacx86 forums for "Mini Beast"). The only thing that doesn't work is WiFi, but I use GigE anyway, so that doesn't matter to me. I needed to install the Intel 2.4.14 Ethernet drivers to get stable network transfers (huge, multi-gig transfers) to my NAS. Also got iMessage working by deleting GenericUSBXHCI.kext and setting Intel ethernet to 'en0'.
6 SATA ports is amazing on a mini-ITX. At first, I wanted my four WD Reds in this Fractal Node 304 case along with my Hackintosh, so it could be an always-on machine, running Plex Media Server, et al. However, I decided that due to spacial constraints, and the fact that I shouldn't be leaving a 4770k on all day, I put my RAID5 array into a separate enclosure. I get transfer speeds of 90-110MB/s to that NAS, over hard wired connection.
I love the abundance of ports on this thing, and it's really well built. Like other reviewers, I also had spacing issues on the Z87N board - it wouldn't fit a Noctua U12S. This board fixed the spacing problems, and I can successfully fit the U12S with two fans on it. Next up, I need to overclock!
Contrary to other reviews I read before purchasing this MB, I'm reasonably overclocked on the i5 4690k I have placed on this motherboard and have not run into any issues. Very easy overclocking provided by Gigabyte's EasyTune app (provided a VERY SAFE 15% overclock by one click), did some extra minor voltage/clock speed tweaking using the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility to maximize the overclock as best as I could.
I've also heard of people complaining about the USB 3.0 jack being too close the the PCI-e slot. I ASSURE YOU THIS IS NOT A FACTOR! I have an ultra thick 2 slot GPU with an massive back-plate and while the USB 3.0 comes very close to touching the GPU, they do not. The only reason I'm making a big deal about this is that this was a key reason I almost fully steered clear of this great value-priced motherboard.
Interestingly, the built in WIFI/Bluetooth 4.0 card that came pre-installed was extremely sufficient. I was worried about getting slow wireless connection at this price and was beginning to look at other wifi cards as an alternative, but I assure you this card is fast. Fastest download I have had yet has been @ ~6mb/sec. Not sure if capable of more or if it should'nt be getting this fast of a download speed, but its more than enough. Also, the dual LAN is nice feature for office/server environments.
I still think this is a great mobo for the price, would like to try out the MSI or EVGA 1150 mini-itx if I had to re-build just to see if the audio would turn out cleaner due since they are about the same price and offering just about the same features. However, I know this mobo is holding up very well and aside from the audio discrepancy, I would recommend it due to the value it does deliver.
Minor installation notes: make sure to clear BIOS via pins with a jumper before you begin your build (being a mini-itx mobo there is a chance your case is as small as mine, if not smaller, and it can be a hassle trying to get to the pins at a later time). Had to reset my BIOS due to the battery needing to be re-kickstarted upon first boot, didn't have any other issues after that. Also, ONLY USE THE DVI OUT WHEN SETTING UP BIOS, while I'm sure most seasoned builders know this: HDMI is not the default primary output and you will get a black placeholder screen after the start up screen, only the DVI will output the bios screen, think this can be changed after initial setup. If you are getting a black screen at boot it might be because you didnt reset BIOS or you might be plugged in via HDMI for setup
This board is incredibly easy to set up, which is something I've noticed about Gigabyte boards. I've been an ASUS loyalist for quite a while, and they've served me well, but Gigabyte makes boards that are just as good. Always nice to find a manufacturer that takes quality seriously.
About the board: thus far, I've been able to overclock my 4790K to 4.8 GHz, which is 100 MHz higher than I ever got with the ASUS board. Admittedly the ASUS was an H97, so overclocking is possible but is not the focus of the board. Additionally, I was finally able to get my memory
to run at the advertised speed of 2400 MHz. The ASUS always crashed when I would employ the XMP so I never really bothered with it, I just ran it at 1600 MHz. I don't usually run my CPUs overclocked on a daily basis, I use it as another metric in judging the stability of a board. You may wonder why I chose an unlocked CPU and don't OC it. A lot of what I do is dependent on the single threaded performance of a CPU, and the 4790K was the absolute king of single threaded measurements. As a matter of fact, it wasn't until the release of the i3-7350K and the i7-7700K that the 4790k was surpassed in single threaded performance. Even so, the difference is only about 2%.
The wireless module is actually very good, which is always a pleasant surprise for an included module. Unfortunately, my situation requires that I use wireless most times, so this particular point is a very high priority for me.
So, to clear up my word salad:
About the board: Awesome. buy it if you can.
About the vendor (MITXPC): Just as awesome, use them if you can.
