Beautiful looking ITX board, been using it for a couple of weeks now.

Even though the front M.2 is rated for Gen4, I am unable to get two different Gen4 NVMe drives to boot with the board, but both drives are working fine in other builds. Gen 3 drives work and boot properly, but ocasionally it doesn't read the drive and i have reset the PC itself to try. BIOS used was the lastest by Colorful, and it seems that users have reported the ame issue too.

Buyer caution as there have been numerous reports that the board has quite a number of issues, as reported by users in China as well.

1. Some overclocking, RAM XMP issues. (Personally didn't have any issue using TeamGroup's Xtreme 4000 to run XMP at Gear 1)
2. BIOS options for changing PCIe gen can be hard to fine. (Didn't have any issues with post, using a Gen 4 cable with a Gen 4 GPU)
3. Dr.MOS power delivery issues (Didn't face any, but am using a 12100 only)
