Great software and MB

  • Pros: Great software with the motherboard, came with a free 4gb of RAM.
  • Cons: Lost an egg for not being as big as it could have been. I bought a full size tower and it had room for a larger board. I bought this board for the size but it wasn't as big it could have been. But, it is a good size still.

  • Summary: It's a very nice motherboard, and if you exclusively use the BIOS to control fans then you should be golden and have no issues and I'd highly recommend. However, if you plan to use windows fan control, I'd look to an Asus board for their Fan Xpert software.
  • Pros: This motherboard has excellent hardware and does an overall fantastic job when overclocking from my experience, and is fairly easy to use for an amateur.

  • Summary: all in all i am extremely satisfied with my board. hardware wise it was a super easy set up. no bent pins and no dead ram sockets like so many have complained about. dont let those 1's and 2's scare you away chances are they have no idea what they were doign upon installs (i base this off reading...
  • Pros: Great board. easy install and easy set up. the buttons for benchecking are a dream come true. instruction packet that came with the board was beyond descriptive on every component. Looks great, runs great, super user friendly
  • Cons: just a few, no real game changer for me, however it may bother some people. 1. did not come with a antistatic bag.(i have no bag to store my old MB in now. 2. A few software issues. -Make sure you primary Harddrive is in the 0 Sata slot other wise you will more than likely get a crash upon a rest...

  • Summary: Paired this board with AVEXIR RAM sticks (the one's with yellow LED's). P/N AVD3U16000904G-4CIY. This RAM seems to work very well--system was powered up for only 5 hours before I killed it.

  • Cons: * None
