Well enough... 05/16/2013
It's the cheapest motherboard you can get with 3 PCI-E 2.0x16 slots.
It works well enough to do what I bought it for.
The driver install disk has loads of bloatware, beware.
One USB 3.0 port doesn't seem to work at all, and the other only works half the time, fortunately i don't need them to mine litecoins.
I'm not sure if any other I/O ports are faulty because i don't need to use them
Low cost or not, everything should work. I don't feel like taking the time to RMA so long as it does what I intended for it...
This is the cheapest/best motherboard you can get for litecoin/bitcoin mining.
OEM's should know better than to gratify bloatware developers... I recommend running a custom install from the disk to ensure you don't get stuck with any of it.
