    This motherboard isn't high end, by any means, and you can't really overclock too well on it (3+1 power phasing! can you believe it???). But then again, that's not a surprise at all, and this wasn't marketed as a high end mobo, by any means. I also don't really like the BIOS screen, it's pretty ugly. Also no USB 3. And, here's the big one, it actually doesn't support UEFI, it just uses plain old legacy BIOS. Doesn't really affect much, but legacy bios is reaaaly outdated. I didn't even think they made that kind of mobo anymore, but apparently they do. This motherboard actually is pretty old, however, and since I bought it on black friday it has gone out of production. However, for the ultra-low price, it's not too bad
