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.
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.
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.
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
