Summary: It works perfectly, the bios are easy to set up and everything is as expected! The plug ins for the power and ram and stuff seems weird, it doesnt really "snap" in. But all is good and Ive been using it and running it non-stop for a month now.
Summary: This motherboard has the basic features I needed and is running smoothly. It came with software that allows me to monitor the processor temperature from within Windows 8, which is nice. It does the trick.
Summary: This motherboard is priced very well for the features that it has. That being said, I will save my time listing its features since they are listed in the product description. There is only one issue with the board, and this has been addressed already in other reviews, so I will be brief. You will have to put some serious pressure on the board when attempting to connect the main power connector to the board.
Summary: I am in the process of transforming everything in my former Dell Inspiron 560 to a respectable gaming computer by replacing every single component, so I needed a good micro-ATX board, and this was the most reliable one I could find while retaining a good price. For your first build or just a budget build, this should be everything you need if you aim to use 2nd or 3rd generation Intel processors (LGA 1155).
Summary: One thing I forgot to do was look to see if there was an HDMI port. I forgot and when it arrived I got my first computer build up. When I looked for a HDMI port there wasn't any. I'm connecting it to my 47" flat screen so i would have to go buy a cord from Walt-Mart to hook up the TV to the PC.
Summary: took me awhile to do the review because i wanted to see how it ran first. but not i had my pc for almost a few days. the MB is doing a great job. it came wrapped in a static plastic. so thats a plus + im running a i3-3220 with this MB. im upgrading next year to i7 to work with this MB. sooo yeah buy it !
