Pros:

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.

Cons:

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

Other Thoughts:

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.
