Good Board 10/29/2012
Affordable board with a good amount of external USB 3.0 ports.
Makes a whining noise, as others have stated. Also only having 6 screws is a bit annoying, although I was extra careful with inserting memory and the 24 pin connector.
Ram location is really close to the CPU. I use the stock cooler with the RAM that came with this board, and it is about 1cm away from touching the heatsink on the fan. This pretty much leaves zero room for some of the "thicker" ram out there. Also, an aftermarket CPU cooler would have to be able to raise off the board enough to clear the RAM.
All in all I am happy with the board, just wish I had researched a bit more before buying it. I was in a rush, so that's on me.
