Pros: All black PCB...
Cons: BIOS sucks on this board....temp sensors are ether very cheap or bios/firmware need major work cant get usable/consistent temps from any program or the bios....north bridge and vrm heat sinks use a poorly designed mounting solution...back I/O plate does not set right at all...some settings seem missing or not right (no cpu core voltage only offset which does not seam to work right....to new of a board to be with out a UEFI....has realtek chips (LAN and Audio)....TPM port is useless because no one (even gigabyte) seams to sell TPM modules....the 990FX chips set runs hot...no leavel of fan control (PWM or not) wish SATA ports were more configurable....so buying ASUS or MSI form now on....READ FULL REVIEW
