OK motherboard, after some work.

Anonymous, Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Pros: It's an OK motherboard, BIOS is a bit flaky and splash screen stays there for a bit, but it works.
  • Cons: It didn't ship with the CMOS jumper, meaning it didn't boot, so I thought it was dead. Bought a new motherboard. Couple weeks later, played around with it, noticed there wasn't a cmos jumper installed, put some aluminium foil over it, and it posted.

STILL WORKS GREAT 3+ YEARS

Ulysses H., Newegg
10 December 2015
  • Pros: STILL GOING STRONG AFTER 3 YEARS, MEMORY, CPU, VIDEO CARD, AND HDD CONVERTED TO SSD. HANDLED EACH UPGRADE EASILY AND STILL HAS ROOM TO UPGRADE AGAIN IF I WANT TO, EVEN AFTER 3 YEARS.
  • Cons: WASN'T FREE?

Can't run a FX6300 at stock speeds!

tracy m., Newegg
10 November 2015
  • Summary: It's a good board if you only plan on going to 3.7ghz if not buy a better board, get something with 8+2 VRM's!
  • Pros: Bios settings are nice...
  • Cons: It has low quality VRM's 4+1 and can't support my FX6300 at base clock speeds, 3.5ghz and turbo 3.8Ghz. Once it gets past 1.25v the VRM's throttle the CPU to .800v. I was able to get it working just fine at 3.7ghz, but in my opinion that SUCKS.

Good solid board.

RJ D., Newegg
28 October 2015
  • Pros: Easy process to OC the processor. Had to update the bios, which I could do easily as well, to accomodate for my fx-8320e processor I was using. Nothing really negative to report from my end on this board.
  • Cons: None.

Joshua S., Newegg

  • Pros: Cheap board, nice UEFI BIOS 970 chipset, not to great, yet not terrible
  • Cons: Runs really hot, I don't know why Overclocking just does not seem to want to work with my CPU, even though it is unlocked RAM speeds are kind of low

Not SLI ready.

Aeolwind "The Cranky Old Guy", Amazon
10 August 2015
  • Summary: I liked it enough to buy it without paying attention that it doesn't work with SLI. So, having to return lol. Also, the description just says AM3; when I got it it indicated that it was AM3+. So it may do both. But I didn't even crack the box.

  • Summary: I went back and forth with this motherboard because of the rating, and decided to get it and it has been wonderful. Currently running a FX-6350, XFX 290A EDBD, and 8gb of Kingston Fury X 1866 mhz and everything is great.
  • Pros: -Easy install -Straightforward BIOS -Fast boot is really fast -Stable -Runs cool (North bridge the hottest -Good Sata cables
  • Cons: -Oddly placed USB 3 pins -Only 2 Sata cables
