Solid board for the price 7/14/2020 12:12:19 PM

Pros: Tons of fan headers

Flash bios button, NVME compatible

Easy install, simple Bios even for a first time builder (me)

Cons: No ARGB headers. D idnt matter to much for me since my radiator has option for ARGB or a manual controller but might matter to someone else.

Overall Review: Read Pro's and Cons

1st PC Build, I could figure it out 7/8/2020 7:56:26 PM

Pros: - Easy to install everything into the motherboard and it's pretty solid
- Didn't boot up and display first time, 2nd time it did and booted from formatted flash drive extremely easily
- No issues in past couple weeks

Cons: - You might want a bit of a smaller screw driver
- I had some struggles putting the RAM in, just had to do one side and then the other instead of directly in, GPU went in better

Overall Review: 8/10, 10/10 with rice

It's great, but... 7/4/2020 5:04:50 PM

Pros: This product was fast, and reliable. Plus you can have an easy Bios setup.
This is a great product overall!

Cons: The only thing I did not like if you have to get a wifi adapter. :(
I would get the TP-LINK adapter with 5ghz, the model is AC600.
Having the adapter would have made it perfect.

Overall Review: If you are willing to pay a little more for an adapter then it's a great product.
