Pros: Low Price, works
Cons: Performance loss of about 15% compared to a better motherboard with an AMD FX-8320 at the same clock speeds.
Northbridge/Mosfet temps are really high, when I set temperature limits of 80 C, the system shut itself down.
BIOS is missing features on other boards, and has no mouse functionality.
Other Thoughts: I built 4 systems with the FX-8320 and this one is by far the slowest. Benchmarks are less consistent and average about 15% lower than other boards. I thought I was saving $40 by going with this board when it was on sale, but the lack of performance will cost me more than that for my usage. DO NOT buy for 125W processors.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Costs less than the cables it contains would separately. Has a little button with a decent length wire (~5ft), which allows you to switch between computers. Two USB cables, an audio and mic cable, and a VGA cable per computer (4)and for output. Has 4 lights so you know which is connected. This saves me so much time switching between the computers.
Cons: Input cables (to towers) are a little short (~3ft), but you can buy additional cables to extend them if you want/need to.
Other Thoughts: Great purchase, makes my setup look great.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: works as specified, lower profile heat sinks
make sure you go into bios and select the xmp profile
Other Thoughts: I've bought 3 sets of Team 1600 MHz memory and all three have worked well. I was a little worried about the brand, but they seem high quality.READ FULL REVIEW
