Pros: Looks are amazing. Green and Black is absolutely gorgeous on the board. The quality of the PCB and components are TOP no better. Gigabyte is the best when it comes to that area. Bios is great too.
Cons: Killer LAN is GARBAGE!!!!! Seriously after using Intel LAN or even Realtek is an improvement over this thing. Also the sound pops and crackles randomly. Not too happy with that. Especially when the board is geared towards sound.
Other Thoughts: Good, But I have had better for cheaper. I am sure with a couple driver updates this will be an excellent board.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The board has nice on-board audio and is packed well.
Cons: Where to start. First the board is FLIMSY compared to the A88X up4. Ugly brown PCB, Almost looks rusted. The bios has alot of control but yet it doesn't let you control anything. You set something in bios and it magically changes values on its own. That's unacceptable. Another huge issue is AMD TURBO CORE DOES NOT WORK on this board. No matter what you try in bios, enable, manually set, Turning off Cool and quiet nothing makes turbo core make whats so ever. Thats a problem, again no control in bios. Maybe a bios update will fix these issues but who knows when that will be 1 week - 5 months? Who knows. As it is now this board is NOT WORTH it.
Other Thoughts: I can't recommend any AsRock products. Every single one I have owned have been plagued with bios issues and poor quality. I gave them another shot with this board and it pretty much proved what I already knew. Do your self a favor and pay a little more for a quality product.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very nice CPU for the price. Quick and snappy. Using this CPU with its onboard 8670D + HD7750 in Crossfire. Works great, Runs steam games easily, Far cry 3 runs nice. Price is good for what you get. I am happy with it.
Cons: Stock HSF is a joke. Seriously its a TINY piece of aluminum with a loud bad quality fan attached to it. With this HSF the CPU will throttle. Get yourself a nice aftermarket HSF and be done with it.
Other Thoughts: Good for a budget gaming rig. You might be surprised about how good it actually is for the low price.READ FULL REVIEW
