Solid Motherboard All Round
on 6 July 2012
Anyone out there who's looking at building their own PC perhaps for the first time or whatever, and you're looking for a motherboard that you can fiddle with, this is it for you.
The price is excellent for what it delivers and I did a hell of a lot of research before deciding on this. If you're looking into overclocking your CPU this can handle the temperatures like a champ. If you want multiple GPUs it comes with an SLi bridge and your graphics card will come with an ATI crossfire so you have the options. 4 RAM slots so supports up to 32GB if you really want, but mine's running with 8 at the moment. USB3.0 native and 6 slots in the interface and then there's the 4 6GB/s sATA ports (2 belonging to the Intel chip and therefore better, 2 for the Marvel chip) along with the 4 other 3GB/s sATA ports (all Intel) for your disk drives, so the latest technology being used is excellent. The BIOS has a friendly 3D interface and an advanced mode for anyone who wants to OC or tinker about. And it looks brilliant, nothing too flashy or pedantic about it, it just goes well with a black case and the blue isn't in your face either.
Bad points... The heat sinks are a little small so as a consequence don't expect OCing opportunities like you might get with an extreme-tier motherboard. That's pretty much it.
Real easy to install, drivers come on a disk for you and I've had no problems with it so far.
Recommended to anyone looking for a mobo with an 1155 socket to go with the latest Intel CPUs on the market.
