I decided to go with MSI's H110 chipset board based on the highly customizable fan speed utility they provide. I want as quiet as a PC as possible and their fan speed utility allows you to set custom speed curves based on temperature, and it works great. The utility might work with non-MSI boards but I wanted to support them since it is so good. I paired the MB with an i5-6500 cooled with a CoolerMaster 212 EVO and things are very quiet. I can also confirm the built-in Realtek 2.1 and 5.1 surround sound output works great and produces a nice, clean sound.
One complaint, MSI mentions it has USB 3.1 connectors while other manufacturers with similar boards simply mention USB 3.0 is included. It turns out both are the same, * "the USB-IF organisation published an article where they announced that USB 3.0 connectors capable of 5Gbps (SuperSpeed) would now be classified as USB 3.1 Gen 1. While the new USB 3.1 connectors, capable of 10Gbps (SuperSpeed+) would now be...
Purchased this motherboard for the base of my new mITX build. I had read comments from others that state that the M.2 slot does not work as a boot device and also that you cannot boot via USB to install the OS. I had neither of these issues. I used the list on the MSI site for compatibility for the M.2 card and memory. I also had no issue using the onboard HDMI for the OS install which has been mentioned as well. After 2 days I have had no issues. Windows 10 Pro installed with no issues and all hardware was seen with no problem. I did download the drivers and updated BIOS before install to have on hand once the OS was loaded. But it did not appear that I actually needed them. The board came with BIOS v3.4 loaded. The most current is v3.5.
I purchased the following M.2 card and memory for my build and they worked with no issues:

If you're planning on getting a 7th Gen Kaby Lake processor read the warning first.
This is a great budget board. I used this board to build a great starter gaming PC for my nephew (i5 6600k with a MSI GTX 1060 i know the k wasn't necessary as it won't get overclocked, but it was the same price as the non k when i bought it) , and i bought this board for a very compact build (media & gaming pc). Other than the fact that you have to update the bios before it will post with a 7th gen processor, it's a great motherboard and that's the only reason i rated it 4 stars.
The mobo i received did not come with bios v3.7 installed. THIS MOBO WILL NOT POST WITH A KABY LAKE (7TH GEN) PROCESSOR UNTIL YOU UPDATE TO 3.7 This means you will have to put a 6th gen (skylake) processor in it and update the bios before it will post with a 7th gen inside.
I bought an i3 7100 for this mini build, but had to put my i7 6700k in it and update the bios...
