Pros: -Great price. I didn't order it from Newegg; but after the two rebates, it ended up being around $75.00 after shipping.
-Fully featured. Has 3 PCI-E slots. Last one is x4 bandwidth, but it can be used for a dedicated PhysX card or something. 7.1 audio, enough Sata ports, supports 2600mhz RAM, etc.
-Fully overclockable with Biostar's BIOS and software.
Cons: -Only two fan headers, and one is in an awkward location. The one on the bottom is almost in the middle of the board, so a lot of the times, your front intake fan will not reach it. I had to buy an extender/splitter.
-Can't suspend properly. Not sure if this is a BIOS issue or something, but attempting to wake my computer up from a suspended state resuts in a black screen, with the fans still running.
Other Thoughts: I used to have a Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3, but after having boot loop issues, I got this motherboard instead. It is cheaper, and it has more features than my previous motherboard. Not being able to suspend is a bit annoying, but I haven't taken the time to really look into this issue.READ FULL REVIEW
