Great gaming MB for under $150 01/18/2014
This is my daily gaming rig. I build computers for others and for work, so the fact that I am happy with this board should carry some weight. The SATA ports are 90- degree outlets to allow the video cards clearance, I like that feature. The BIOS program from ASUS is top notch, and works very well. Ready for dual SLI/Crossfire.
I agree with others who commented about the fan outputs, there could be more fan ports, and the placement makes for longer cable runs. I used a fan controller mounted in a 5.25 external slot so I can adjust the fans how I want, and if you really want clean wiring have a couple 4 wire extensions handy.
For the money this is a fantastic value. I also own boards that cost more than double the cost of this one, and the performance gains are negligible. I would recommend this board for any build using an ATX case.
