Summary: For a $230 board that is really a disappointment. Now I'm faced with the aggravation of removing the board and sending it in for a replacement (what am supposed to do without a computer that time??) or just leaving the ports busted and buying a new ethernet card. grrrrr....
Pros: Tons of ports and onboard functions
Cons: Ethernet card failed after less than 90 days of use!!!
Summary: I followed every safety procedure while installing the motherboard using exact instructions from the manual. I used an anti static mat to prevent static damage and had the power suply unplugged but the pc will not turn on. All other components are working perfectly but when using this motherboard it will not start, I even try'd re-installing it and still nothing.
Summary: OK I wanted Sniper M3 for my mate but due to lack of stock i told him to go with this one instead.
Box is nice
It looks nice
Feels well build
But power section burned down after 4 months of working on stock speed system..
First motherboard that packed up on me in 14 years putting PCs together.
