    Again amazing for the price! Cannot recommend this enough. Although the BIOS is very annoying to use due to the mouse DPI in the BIOS, I was still able to overclock easily. A thing to watch for.. I broke my USB3 pin on my motherboard so be careful! I am currently using a USB2 to USB3 converter to get my front panel USB3 ports to work.

    UEFI bios, seen better implementations but it worked well enough. Lower end motherboard but has the features she will actually use.

    I'm not qualified to review a motherboard but it definitely works.

    Great motherboard however some of the sata ports are hard to connect into if your gpu is already connected.

    Good motherboard for AM3+ socket CPUs. Don't particularly like how it looks however.

    This motherboard was a very good price, and offers an 8+2 power phase, which gives me a little more overclocking headroom. The bump up in price for a 990FX motherboard was not worth it considering the benefits. I have overclocked very well with this motherboard, as it offers a very easy to use UEFI bios. My SSD now runs faster as this motherboard has a SATA 3, whereas my last had SATA 2. Overall this is a good motherboard which looks attractive and performs well.

    from completed build First PC Build: I'm hooked.

    It does exactly what it should, and then some. This motherboard is a great overclocker, I easily took my AMD 8320 to 4GHz and it's pretty sturdy feeling. I wouldn't pick another AMD board.

    Good motherboard. No frills. Not a huge fan of the BIOS though.
