    Good board, does what is asked and has plenty of options for overclocking.

    Good solid, cheap, budget mobo. Good features, USB 3.0 headers, good I/O features (I/O shield is a little cheap but w/ever.) Three fan headers + CPU fan, Great on board audio in my opinion. Something to bare in mind is the power phase of this motherboard, it only uses 4 +1, this means it is NOT good for overclocking as the board cannot handle large increases in voltage. The mobo is very important for OCing, but for non OCing purposes this is fine. BIOS is decent enough.

    Wish I had spent a bit more for a better MOBO, but for the price I can't complain. Basic OC is easy to do, but I wish there was an option to WOL, at the time I never thought about it but now I'd love the added convenience.

    I have certain issues with this mobo. if you are a heavy overclocked this is not one for you. I have noticed that the read/write speed of the bus is not that high if you compare it with Asus or MSI. Sometimes all the USB 3.0 jacks stops working abruptly and then you need to re-install drives. I would suggest to but a 990FXA series board rather than this.

    Heard a lot of people having issues with this board on NewEgg but I am yet to have an issue with it. I like all the USB ports and the built in audio card is fantastic!

    Good for the price, the color is a bit ugly but it gets the job done.

    No problem whatsoever, keeps everything running well. I cannot risk OCing with it though.
