Summary: This is a feature rich high performance gamer's mobo, for which I could give 5 stars if not for the very poor initial quality control (typical Chinese). Buying one of these is a crapshoot. If the board works initially you've had good luck. I had to go through 4 of them to get the 2 good ones I have working now on my network. Remains to be seen how long they last, but I'm hopeful (once the board burns in it seems to be reliable). And you can't beat the price!
Summary: The PCIe x1 slot is stuck right beside a huge chip cooler tower. So unless the card you're using is short, it's useless. Luckily there's two PCIe x-16 slots, and I'm only using one, so I was able to use one of them for my card. Other than that little design flaw, I think it's a good solid board. Lots of overclocking stuff, and a core unlocker, although it's not called that in bios. Went together easily and booted up flawlessly.
Summary: So usually when I an item and it arrives DOA I wait till I get a replacement. DOA items happen with all electronics. So the first motherboard came in I started getting blue screens. So I took it in to have it tested because i bought many other parts at the same time and had no way of really testing them. When I got it back I was told the RAM was bad so I sent the RAM back and ordered replacement RAM only to find out that the same thing was happening.
Summary: Wer glaubt, mit diesem Board "für den kleinen Geldbeutel" ein Schnäppchen gemacht zu haben, der irrt. Nach dem Einbau und dem Verkabeln wollte ich das neu installierte Board in Betrieb nehmen, mußte aber feststellen, daß gar kein VGA-Anschluß vorhanden ist, obwohl er in der detaillierten technischen Spezifikation bei Amazon aufgeführt ist. Wer dann noch glaubt, er könne vielleicht auf einen HDMI-Anschluß ausweichen, wird ebenso enttäuscht sein.
