Pros: Overall this has been a great board. For the price you will not find a board with more features. Supports everything I need it to. The feel of this board is very sturdy. Does not feel flimsy like others I've used in the past. Running solid other than below mentioned complaint for about a year now.
Cons: Came with two bad DIMM slots so I cannot run the RAM in dual channel mode. I've tested the RAM for errors (check voltages, etc.) and it runs fine in single channel mode so there is some quality issues. For that it loses two eggs.
Other Thoughts: Wasn't worth sending back. I needed the build up and running and even with two bad DIMM slots, I'm still soaring on 16 GB of RAM. By the time I need 32 GB of RAM, this will be obsolete.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Running smooth at 4.3 Ghz on a stock cooler and still runs adequately cool even on heavier loads. Super fast for the price. Upgraded from a Q9450. Blows it out of the water. Processing effects for photoshop is almost instant. Runs games like SWTOR with no complaints.
Other Thoughts: Only way I'd go for the i7 is you have programs that can utilize hyperthreading. Otherwise i5 is more than adequate and will save you money.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit
Pros: Going from 32 bit vista to 64 bit Win7 is like a dream come true. Much better allocation of system resources. Solid system performance. Very sturdy system with no crashes. Does not get stuck in sleep mode like Vista did.
Other Thoughts: I would still prefer this over the newer Windows 8.READ FULL REVIEW
