5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board

Pros: Easy Install
Great BIOS
Plenty of connections

Cons: Comes with 6 SATA ports, but only 4 SATA cords? Weird.

Other Thoughts: I am a first time PC builder and I chose this board due to price and a great track record. I have not been disappointed thus far.
I did not run into any issues with this board, or any components for that matter, during installation. I am very happy with this MOBO. I built this machine as an upgrade from my old system that will also do some mid-range occasional gaming. For that purpose, it is great.

3 out of 5 eggsAlright except for audio

Pros: Works really well overall. Fit perfectly in my case and handles just about anything

Cons: About a month ago I started getting these really really weird audio issues that I could've only assumed came from the on board audio on the motherboard, as I hadn't bothered with a soundcard. Picked up a soundcard and the problem smoothed right out, but still, something to be wary of

Other Thoughts: It's good for the price, but I do kinda wish I'd gotten a little higher quality of a motherboard after these audio issues I got not even a full year after owning it

3 out of 5 eggsTerrible UEFI / BIOS

Pros: -Works
-A lot of USB ports
-A lot of USB headers
-Good chipset
-Good audio chip
-Nice front-panel I/O headers

Cons: The UEFI interface is terrible. The mouse lags and it is better to use the arrow keys like it's 2005. Very poorly designed and lain out UEFI. It is hard to find what you want to find. It turns on very strangely; it starts the fans and turns them off for about 7 seconds, then turns the computer back on. The SATA ports are perpendicular with the board. There aren't very many fan headers (only 3).

1 out of 5 eggsDefective

Pros: Would be a decent board if it worked...

Cons: Came with the box damaged in the corner, no big deal as long as it works right?
Wrong it does not work at all the CPU_Fan connector does not work right the Heat sink will start up and stop after 5 seconds,
The PCI express slots don't work (its not my GPU either I just tried it on my old motherboard to make sure).
These are only the problems I know about I cant get into any display to work so I have no clue what else could be wrong and now newegg wants me to pay to ship it back on an Item I paid for and does not work, I just don't get it

5 out of 5 eggsWorking great

Pros: You can all see the features and specs on this motherboard, so I won't put any of that here.

It's working great. No problems at all.

Cons: A minor con, not worth deducting an egg -- the motherboard has an "always on" USB feature that's intended to allow phone/gadget charging even when the PC is off.

I installed a card reader which connects via USB, and as a result an LED light was on all the time.

I found that if I went into the BIOS and enabled "ErP the light would go off. However, as a result the following features wouldn't work:

PME event wake up, power on by mouse, power on by keyboard, and wake on LAN

This didn't bother me because I don't use any of those.

Other Thoughts: I am very happy with the purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard!

Pros: User friendly BIOS. Easy to navigate. Instructions are there to help first time builders. Putting everything all in it's place was quite easy. Good performance and hasn't failed me so far!

Cons: Nothing for now.

Other Thoughts: Buy this motherboard with confidence! I'm very satisfied with my first build!

5 out of 5 eggsSolid board so far

Pros: I was a little sketch with this board because of some of the reviews but I'd have to say it was a good buy. No funny, quirky issues to speak of. Booted up rock solid the first time and every time since.

Cons: The USB and Network drivers had to be installed from the disk. It's always a bonus when drivers can be found through windows update.
