Price History (Excluding Tax & Combo Deals) History:


A standard, well-built low end motherboard. Doesn't have as many features, but for my needs, it's perfect.

from completed build £190 - $300 Proof of concept

Solid card, One Gpu slot Ideal for a budget build no USB 3.0 front panel connectors. Decent Overclock good Pairing with a i3 or Pentium (G3258) CPU.

The motherboard was a very good price and had a lot of good features with good reviews online so went with that. Works great so far as I can tell and will check on everything when I visit home again.

A great pair for the G3258. Cheap and allows overclocking!

from completed build We talking about PRACTICE

Well-built, cheap, and can overclock the G3258. Point-and-click BIOS is a big step up from the ancient P55 board in my current build.

I bought this in August so I had to update the BIOS to overclock the G3258.

4/5 because a USB 3.0 header would've been nice, but at this price I can't complain.

This motherboard is commonly used with the G3258 and has good reviews and overclocking functionality. The price was perfect for my budget as well so it was an obvious choice. No USB 3.0 headers but even if there are I am not sure if they would work on the USB 2.0 ports of my case. The BIOS was already up-to-date when I got this motherboard, and enabling overclocking was out of the box and easy.

Installing the motherboard and connecting the cables was the trickiest and most challenging part of my build since I have always been intimidated by the idea of it, trying to figure out which goes where and paying attention to the positives and negatives. Now that I have successfully managed to install a CPU/cooler to the motherboard and attach/wire the whole thing into the case I feel great and more confident to tackle my future dream PC build!

from completed build 2nd Office Computer

No issues, seems well built and the bios was easy to understand.

This mobo has seen three different rebuilds and it has performed well since day one.

There is no on-board USB 3.0 header which would require an adapter for support with newer case hardware.
