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.

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!

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.

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.

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

As soon as this got delivered, it went straight into my PC. Its ATX (NOT M-ATX) so it went into my case perfectly. Doesnt come with any standoffs or screws so have about 6 of them handy when your installing this. Everything connected perfectly, no problems so far and I'v had it for about 4 months now. If your deciding whether or not to get it, let this review shift your view towards buying it!

This MB has given me so much headache I can't even rate it. I'm having difficulty installing windows 7 64bit. Installation hangs and does not go beyond the user agreement. I've changed my memory modules, power unit, graphics card to no avail. Am using the following components: AMD Athlon II 3.2Ghz processor, radeon HD5450 1GB DDR3 PCI express 2.1 card, 4GB corsair TW3X41333C9A XMS3 memory modules, 650W Powercool 80+ PSU. Can someone please tell me where am going wrong? What components have people used for a successful build and installation?. I really need help.
