For someone looking to build a small system for a reasonable price and doesn't want or need to put effort into tweaking it, this ASUS ROG Strix motherboard is a decent choice.  The chipset simply doesn't support overclocking which also means less to break when investigating the UEFI.  With the small size, single PCIe 16x slot and two DIMM slots it will not satisfy a power user, but a build for a friend or family member who has fairly basic needs it might be perfect.

"It seems there is a new mini-ITX motherboard model every time you turn around. We’ve often looked at the higher end of the spectrum on these little power houses. This time we switch gears and look at a more budget oriented option than we are used to, how does this $128 motherboard hold up to its more expensive brethren? "

Probably a decent board but that big Shroud on the back end sure looks out of place. I guess they thought if they include the Shroud of ugliness it would make people think the board was more premium like.

Hey, nobody will buy these things if they don't look like those cheap chinese light toys sold at street markets. The people demand, the market supplies.
