1 out of 5 eggsDoes not Work after 2 Week

Pros: Worked well at first

Cons: Does not work now.
The board does not provide enough power through my PSU to turn on the CPU fan or to start the BIOS.

I tried resetting it. Pulled out all power pins and replaced and still does not work.

I have a brand new CX750 Power supply and only 1 GPU and 3 fans so the PSU is not the problem.

4 out of 5 eggsSo so.

Pros: Started with a newegg kit and modified most selections to make a custom build. I probably would have upgraded this mobo but that was overlooked. It performs well so far.

Cons: My fault for not looking harder into this board, but there is no firewire. So, 20-30 bucks for an add on card. Also the mounting clips for cpu fans only allow my zalman to point up or down, not back. that's ok with this case since it has a top exhaust.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks good

Pros: Board has a nice layout. Nothing feels cramped. Has USB 3.0 onboard with a slot for expansion. I like the BIOS. The manual was detailed enough to be useful as well.

Cons: Changing the BIOS boot order wasn't as straightforward as it appeared from the boot menu.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked great for 10 days.

Pros: Booted right up first time with no problem. Bios is really easy use. More than enough 2.0 usb ports. Sound quality is fairly good from the board. I have been using Gigabyte boards for years.

Cons: After 10 days it is in the hands of UPS for return. Started my system yesterday and crash dump all day long. It wouldn't even be that bad returning it except it cost me almost 16 dollars to ship. Makes me wish I had got it from a brick and mortar store. Now I get to look at my PC in pieces until I get my new board.

Other Thoughts: Something needs to be done about the return policy. I would be afraid to buy anything large from Newegg for fear of having to get it back to them.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: I have two XFX 7950's on this motherboard running crossfire with no problem. I also have 4x2GB of Mushkin Enhanced Redline at 1600Mhz and a 6-8-6 timing and still haven't found a hickup! Not to mention the AMD FX 8350 CPU! Runs any high end add-on with out a problem. Oh, and overclocking it super easy!

Cons: The Northbridge does run a little hot in game as I have seen it hit 56c. That's not too high, but it bothers me and makes me want to upgrade, but then I remember.. All the pros.

Other Thoughts: If you;re looking for an inexpensive mobo that can do just about anything, this is for you.

2 out of 5 eggs6 months and dead

Pros: Big, full of usb slots. Room for most anything you want to fit in it. Bios is nice and clean. No issues with heat dispersion.

Cons: It worked great until it died, not sure if refund or replacement is available

Other Thoughts: I'm curious just curious about its warranty. I really enjoyed it while it worked and if I'd be content with a replacement over a refund

3 out of 5 eggsSquirrely Bios

Pros: Still works after about 2 years. Plenty of inputs including internal usb 3.0. So far all works including Audio

Cons: No onboard video, but I knew that when I bought it.. However, it has a squirrely Bios that randomly reboots and forgets drive order.

Other Thoughts: Not much to say about this board which is starting to show it's age a little. The reboots and random forgetting of drive settings (with new battery, and latest bios) is annoying. Had more stable for less (including gigabyte mobos.).

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the price

Pros: Great motherboard with everything I need! It's pretty sturdy and has more than enough usb ports.

Cons: Well... I couldn't connect to an Lan connection for some reason. 2 hrs layer of troubleshooting I found that it needed new drivers. Problem solved.

Other Thoughts: Even with the troubleshooting, this motherboard is pretty nice.
