Has everything a real expensive board has and even some more for a good price. Clear CMOS button on rear panel, PWR & RESET buttons on board. Nice looking heatsinks on NB & SB. Good spacing for CPU & memory. Supports AM3+ and much more...
Cannot enter BIOS UEFI: just get a frozen black screen with a mouse pointer in the middle! Now I can't set my memory to 800MHz, or use the supposed awesome Turbo Overclocker options, or change anything. Windows still boots and everything still works but it's not at the speeds it's supposed to be. Updated first, then tried reverting back thru previous versions of BIOS, just got a messed up board or something. I'll give it a few days to try and get this figured out but seems like I've tried everything.
There's no IDE and only 5 SATA but it's not a big deal nowadays. Gives me an excuse to buy a SATA Blu-Ray drive.
