Summary: No problems with motherboard. Offers everything I need. Even though this is technically a dead socket. Meaning no more CPU's will be released for it. I was able to build an entire PC, minus a monitor, keyboard, mouse & OS for $700. I also picked a solid GPU. An EVGA GeForce GTX760 2 GB SuperClocked, to be precise. For the price vs Intel I cant complain. This performs well and works like a Cambodian child in a sneaker sweatshop for the price I paid.
Summary: Im very impressed with this board and especially for the money. Very well made, BIOS is a breeze, lots of USB ports and 4 USB 3.0 ports on board. Im running AMD FX 8350 8 Core black edition, 16 GB Vengeance RAM, with EVGA GTX 650Ti Boost SC 2GB.
Summary: I love this product it is great for anyone who knows enough about hardware to build their own computer. It has TONS of USB ports and lots of room for you to expand the capabilities of your computer. I would recommend this to anyone looking to build their own computer.
Pros: I built a great budget gaming system for my nephew with this MB. The bios was very nice and fully configurable. It even recognized and used the USB mouse, It was easy to adjust the settings on the ram.
Cons: The driver disk comes with some crapware. Install only the drivers you need, do not do a auto install if you want to avoid the crapware.
Pros: Booted right up recognized FX 8320 right out of the box. Haven't found anything wrong with it seems rock solid. Great power phase and heat sinks on MOSFETS and NB has some OC potential with proper thermal control.
Cons: Only 1 pcie 16x but knew that going in so not really a con just make sure you know what you're getting. The bios feels a little clunky (mostly me not recognizing a few things) coming from ASUS bios but that is just something I gotta get used to however it looks a lot prettier!
