Cons: The EA-380D is NOT fully haswell compatible!!! I repeat, it is not. After purchasing this PSU the Intel CPU included a warning sheet on the C& sleep state that goes to a very low level of power and PSUs need to be certified to handle this very low voltage.

Pros: I used this motherboard in 4 computers in a small insurance agency. Did well. Inexpensive and has SATA 6 Gbs and USB 3.
Cons: This latest mobo I received is not so good. DOA. Has the same "3-beep" memory error reported by another user. Never could even get it going, even when I used memory from 2 other working computers with the same mobo. Looks to be a bad batch to me!
