Main PCIe slot latch broke on first use8/31/2020 4:17:31 PM

Pros: -Quality VRM -Nice aesthetics -Great value

Cons: -Cheap plastics used on critical components Board worked great until I needed to remove the graphics card. The release latch broke and my expensive graphics card almost got stuck in the slot. Fortunately I was able to remove the card, but now I can't use the main PCIe x16 slot.

Overall Review: So much for "TUF" "military-grade" components. Don't buy unless you want to risk getting your GPU stuck in the board permanently.
