So they finally released this board. It was the most promising board when it only existed in rumours and as a small picture on the Gigabyte site. And it actually became the nicest FM2 mini-itx board available.

I already went for the MSI mini-itx board this spring, but given the availability I would have bought the Gigabyte. It's a pity that FM2+ for Kaveri should be released in about half a year and the waiting for a decent AMD mini-itx board begins anew. Gigabyte - create a board like this for FM2+ closer to launch and you have my money.

It was mentioned in the review that the layout is irrelevant because it's itx -- I disagree. The layout prevents this motherboard from being used in passively cooled cases such as those from Streacom or HD-Plex. To me, that is a huuuuge downside.
