Summary: I'd like to say the GIGABYTE H61M-S2P-B3 Cougar Point Motherboard takes the Sandy Bridge processor to new heights. But, that isn't the board's objective. The board's mission is to offer the same level of performance you would get from any standard ATX platform board without spending nearly as much.
Pros: Extremely Affordable, Low power consumption, Full speed performance micro-ATX, Full speed PCI Express x16 slot, Very stable platform throughout testing
Cons: No USB 3.0 support, 16GB DDR3 MAX Supported (via 2x8GB DIMMS), Overclockers will be disappointed
