Summary: Gigabyte continues to be my favourite mobo maker. For the price they have the best feature set and the quality is outstanding - I've never had a DOA board or any issues with a build. Highly recommended.
Summary: I very much doubt there is a better mATX or ATX FM2 motherboard than this one. This is about the only board that makes use of all 8xSATA ports from the chipset without wasting it on useless eSATA or not using it at all. The overclockability is good, as to be expected with A85X chipsets. The layout is excellent and very roomy for an mATX board.
Pros: 8x SATA ports, cheap, good layout, very expandable
