Awesome board for the price

Pros: Affordable Excellent automatic case fan profiles for silent running

Cons: Too much flex at the atx connector, 1cm shy of being able to use the next row of case mounts to improve this. No q-code display

Overall Review: Awesome board for short term upgrades

Great connectivity, Murder heat sinks

Pros: -2 USB 2, 2 USB 3, and 1 USB 3.2 headers along with 3 m.2 slots (m.2_1 only works with Intel 11s). Awesome connectivity!

Cons: -The heatsinks are razor sharp. I built 4 machines with this board within 1 week and I never learned my lesson. Each one drew blood, and did so well I never noticed until the heatsinks were coated red. -Of the 4 (2 separate orders) boards I received, one had a bent pin out of box; but I managed to correct it with no issues. -Board is windows 11 capable but not exactly "READY", as Win11 doesn't seem to recognize discrete TPM at this time. Had to enable firmware TPM manually.

Overall Review: Great board for what it can do; just watch out for the knives

One of the best M.2 SSDs on the market

Pros: Very fast sustained read and write with low temps and no additional cooling. Solid lifespan.

Cons: None

Overall Review: No reason to get anything else.
