I've been using this motherboard for a little while, and although I have yet to overclock in any drastic measure, all the other features are going well.

It doesn't have a vga port, which could be an issue for some people, but it wasn't for me as I have a separate graphics card. So far I haven't received any error messages relating the the board (eg, usb bandwidth overloads) which were commonplace on my old board, and it runs my AMD Phenom x6 without throttling (again a common issue on my old board).

I'll comment again when i've had a chance to overclock but for now, it's a really stable board, especially within this price range.

Great Motherboard, Great Price.

Bought for my custom build:

- This Board
- AMD Phenom ii x4 Black Edition Processor
- Kingston 4GB 1333MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 DIMM Memory (Now Corsair Vengeance Blue 4GB 1333MHz DDR3)
- Generic 500gb HDD
- Sapphire HD6670 1GB GDDR5 (Now Sapphire HD7790 1GB GDDR5 OC)
- Some Sony DVD Drive
- Corsair GS 500W PSU
- Vantage Gaiviers Case (Now Military Green C70 by Corsair, last one was a little on small side for me)
- Windows 8 64-Bit

Had this build a while now no trouble at all.

A great motherboard if you want to start out, it has 4 slots for ram (2X dual channel) 1 graphics card slot and usb3 (no header) and many of the other "bells and whistles" that a board 3 times the price has.
The only down side to this board I could find was the chip set which happens to be the only one you can't "quick bypass" and so your limited to a start up time of minimum 12 seconds and the single graphics card (not good if u want a triple monitor set up).
What I suggest is buying this for a short while and upgrading to a better high end motherboard such as a gigabyte one.
Taking all this into account, the board arrived fast, was easy to fit and great to start out with but defiantly you should should upgrade
A definitive 5stars from me.
Hope this review helped any buyers.

Does everything it says on the tin really and for the money you can't get anything better really. The 3 PCI lanes are helpful and the fact that there is a fairly large gap between the PCI-E lane and the regular PCI lanes mean that you shouldn't have any problem fitting your graphics card in there. Not a huge gap between the CPU and the RAM so be careful if you have an XL after-market cooler especially if you are intending on running 4 RAM chips. Apart from that been running for almost 2 months now not a single problem :) Great Buy!

Had very few issues and had more than enough space for my components in my case

the only issue was a slight problem with surge protection. though this may be due to the power supply than the motherboard itself
