Nice for the price

  • Summary: Bought used for $65 shipped. CONS: The audio was out when it arrived. I tried everything, emailed for support, replied in 2 days saying if none of that worked send it in for RMA number. Seller has receipt to RMA, which I haven't set up yet. Now, I use the audio out from the monitor via the HDMI connection and I bought a little USB sound card for $5. So, not really worth the down time to return. Not sure if it was the motherboards fault, but I have 2 dead ram sticks now.

It's great!!!

  • Summary: If you pair this with an AMD FX CPU, you will NOT be disappointed. I have been using this motherboard for gaming, and it has not let me down. My previous board and cpu were Intel integrated and caused many crashes. This motherboard, however, has not crashed or conflicted at all; most likely because it's AMD based. Anyway, I would highly recommend this motherboard to anyone looking to upgrade or build a powerful PC.

So far so good

Siphandone, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought a used one for $55 from individual that came with everything except the bar code (I knew before I bought). Install the board, connect connectors, power it up, go to BIOS, optimize it and install a clean Win 7. CPU is FX6300 (also it came in today) and overclocks to 4.2 GHz (WEI = 7.5). First day is working fine. No complaint.

Great Motherboard for a good price...

David Perez, Amazon
18 July 2014
  • Summary: Great Motherboard. Not too expensive and has many quality features. For a budget PC build this is an excelent Motherboard. Accepted the RAM values at 1600Mhz without any changes to the BIOS. I installed Windows 8.1 and it found most all the drivers including the NIC. A good rule of thumb before you purchase any Motherboard is to visit the manufactures website and check their Quality Vendors List (QVL).
