5 out of 5 eggsgreat MoBo

Pros: Did very extensive research before buying and building my first pc, this MoBo seems to be the best or one of the best in the price range i was looking for. It has more than enough PCI slots to add on, not to mention it has all 4 types which makes things even better. Plenty of flexibility in the RAM speeds to allow for more shopping around thus getting a better deal. I am using an APU until i can afford a dedicated GPU so the flexibility that this MoBo gave me with that is extremely nice and also means that if i have an issue with the GPU i don't have to lose all use of my computer.

Cons: The cap's could be a bit more heavy duty heat desperation wise. This would attract more gamers because it would allow for even harder OC'ing than it already can do.
2 of the SATA ports are in an difficult position not on the edge of the board like most SATA ports are. This isn't an issue however because it comes with 2 SATA cables, both with one end at a 90 degree angle. If you use one at an angle and the other strait than this is no longer an issue which worked out fine for me because because of the mounts for a 2.5" SSD forced me to use the strait end while the case was so close to the HDD that i had to use the angled cable for it. If this is still an issue than you can fix it for a hole $2-5 with shipping included by buying a SATA cable separate that has both ends strait or angled.
All in all no real issues that were really bad enough to even call an issue.

Other Thoughts: my computer build as of yet
1. AMD A8-6600K Richland Quad-Core 3.9GHz Socket, Black Edition AMD Radeon HD 8570D
2. Rosewill RCX-ZAIO-92 92mm Sleeve Bearing Fan CPU Cooler (this CPU is notorious for being extra hot and despite this CPU coolers's reviews it wasn't terrible to install)
3. WD WD Blue WD2500AAKX 250GB 7200 RPM (HDD for storage)
4. PNY XLR8 SSD9SC120GMDF-RB 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD for OS, 1 most commonly played game, and more intensive applications)
5.HyperX 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory (after purchasing i found out the difference between RAM stick speeds is negligible at even a mid to high level gaming)
6. Rosewill Green Series RG530-S12 530W Continuous (agin after purchasing i found modular power supplies at the same price)
7. Sentey Optimus Extreme Division Tower Case
8. LITE-ON Black SATA DVD-ROM Drive Model iHDS118-04
