Not good if you want a massive OVERCLOCK
on 30 June 2013
The motherboard is very impressive. It has everything you need for a decent PC. Great value for money.
-Supports PCI 3.0
-Supports USB 3.0
-Supports SATA 3 6gb/s which is great for an SSD
-Four memory slots up to 32GB DDR3 RAM
-Seems durable my last Gigabyte board lasted 5 years without any issues and is still going.
-You'll find it hard to get another board that offers the same for a cheaper price
-3D BIOS looks cool and it's easy to tune the system
-Integrated audio and graphics, which is great if you don't have a sound card or graphics card, also has DVI socket.
-Wide choice of 1155 CPU's i3, i5, i7 both 2nd and 3rd generation
-Very easy to build as the board is well labelled or in the instruction booklet
-If you planning on getting a massive overclock like 4.5 Ghz or higher with a i5 3570k, i7 3770k or another K series then try another board. There is no adjustable Vcore option in the BIOS on this board making it difficult reach higher overclocks above 4.2-4.4 Have a look on google to find out more.
-The board only comes with one black SATA 3 cable, where as my previous Gigabyte board came with loads of cables but I suppose that's what for a cheap board like this.
-Seemed to rattle around in the box a bit.
Overall highly recommended.
