Summary: Used in 3 i7 2600ks for 3D rendering. All overclock super easy. Have not had any bad loops that weren't fixed by resetting BIOS. Great bang for buck. Recommended highly. Very stable. Good RAM can be hard to come by these days so if you have problems, always swap RAM to make sure it isn't the problem as it often is. Other thoughts: The USB 3.0 ports in one are finnicky, that's it though.
Summary: I paid 95 dollars for this product on amazon. Works great for if you are a moderate user which do not do harcore gaming. The good thing about this motherboard is it supports ivybridge processors with a bios update. So to get ivybridge working on this MOBO you will need to purchase or borrow a sandybridge cpu, install it in a fully built computer. turn it on go into the bios and flash the latest version of this MOBOs bios.
Summary: Just a look a all of the features you get with the board for what you pay are ridiculous. There are a few things that caught me off guard but nothing to want me to return it for a more expensive product. Pros -USB 3.0 -PCIe 3.0 (Though to enable this you will need an Intel 22 nn chip) -2 SATA3 and 3 SATA2 connectors -Integrated audio sounds AMAZING -This is a z68 board so you do have overclock capabilities -Bios is really easy to manage through Cons -More of my own...
Summary: I'll preface this with saying that this isn't my first build. At all. I've used mother boards from $75 to $300. My rating keeps in mind what you get for the price you pay. The price on this motherboard is a steal for a Z68 board, especially considering everything it comes coupled with.
Summary: Great features, small size fits great in an old Mac Pro G4 tower to make the ultimate Hackintosh. Supports sandy bridge intel processors making the OSx86 project easy with lots of support from tonymac
Great value for the price, and good for first-time builders

Summary: Built my first PC with this motherboard. Got one of the last 8 Amazon Prime units in stock for $104.24. Perfect for a lower mid-level gaming PC. If I had to build another PC, I would go right back to a Gigabyte Z68 board. Pros: - More than enough PCI-E and PCI 16 slots for a network adapter, two graphics cards, and more. Can Crossfire between two ATI graphics cards. - 4 DDR3 SDRAM slots, with enough clearance for low profile memory and a Hyper212+ CPU Cooler.
Summary: I used this MB for my first build this month. First of all, it looks real good and virtually everything is clearly identified. It provides all the usual power and data functions generously enough though, as it turns out, I'd have liked more than the 6 SATA ports on the board. Three things that stand out about this MB for me are: 1. It supports the software Touch BIOS, which allows BIOS update from Windows. 2.
