    I may not be completely representative of all computer builders, but here are some words about this board.

    The first thing to note is that the integrated IO plate and the metal housing that encloses the IO ports make the motherboard higher than any other ITX motherboard. This made me rebuild a little bit in my chassis when the top of the motherboard hit a metal rail in my computer box (Streacom DA2). Stupid of Asus to make an ITX motherboard higher than standard, you buy ITX motherboards to squeeze into small spaces.

    This motherboard also has problems displaying the BIOS prompt on 8K screens (in my case a Dell UP3218K). As a result, I have to change the screen to a lower version of the Display Port standard in order to enter the BIOS. It is especially disturbing when both MSI and ASRock support this, then Asus with its resources should also fix this.

    Well, I still chose to keep this. This is because I experienced quite extreme coil whine on the motherboards of MSI and ASRock, at idle the motherboards were the loudest in the chassis which is not acceptable. Here, Asus seems to have better components so plus for that.

    Asus software also does not have the support for 8K screens, UI is barely visible. Large minus for this year 2019.

    If you intended to use this motherboard for a few years and possibly upgrade to 8K when the wave of 8K screens begins to roll in, you may have to think again. However, it is possible to work around the problems, but given the cost of the motherboard, it is only half-rated.
