Great for it's price

Pros: It's been two years since I've bought this MOBO for my first build, and I've enjoyed my time with it!
-It managed to last through the stress I've put it.. This includes overclocking my old GPU at the time, and switching over to a more modern GPU.

Cons: Obviously this is a barebones MOBO, so if you plan to
-SLI/Crossfire your GPU's
-Add expansions such as soundcards/Wireless adapter
Then you won't be able to do this. Also note that this MOBO supports only 1600/1333, which doesn't really matter when gaming, but it only has 2 slots.

Other Thoughts: For the time I've spent with it I enjoyed every second of it, but now it's going to a better place... No it's not dead, it's still very much alive... I just recently bought a new MOBO in hopes of one day SLIing my GPU, and adding more ram to it.

Update-Running Smooth

Pros: Still running smooth since 1 month ago.

Cons: no cons

Other Thoughts: I just wanted to update my review because I wrote one a few days after I installed the motherboard. Now it has been more than a month and the board is running just fine.

not happy

Pros: if it worked, it would've been a fairly good price and good features for my intended build.

Cons: not a good quality motherboard, too thin, when building the pc, i felt like i damaged the board from all the noises it made as if it would it just break apart ( thats probably one of the reasons to why i couldnt get it to work, the board being inflexible to work with ), and apparently it has other problems which i believe to be true, the pci express x1 lane does not work ( so if you installed something there in the first place, which i did, then it fries the motherboard which i believe is what happened to me and why i was unable to get the pc to work properly, the 24 pin motherboard connector port does not seem to get full electrical contact, thus not allowing the pc to get proper power / and probably explains why i was unable to power the pc for more than a minute or two, and why it was constantly power cycling, on, off, on, off. sometimes a few seconds, sometimes a lot more, someone else had this same problem with the same psu i have, the corsair cx430 and on one of asrock's motherboards too, so i dont think this is a coincidence.

Other Thoughts: i dont have the time, money or energy to take the computer to a service technician to diagnose whats wrong, i would probably get hundreds of dollars charged / possibly wasted time as well, so im just gonna take the chance and order a new different motherboard and see if the problem was exactly the motherboard as all other parts are brand new in my build, and from troubleshooting and reading online, it would seem that the motherboard would probably be the closest thing to look at.

Worked good for 2 weeks

Pros: Cheap, new socket. That's about it though.

Cons: Well, it worked well for 2 weeks, then the sound started cutting out. Now, I'm probably going to have to return this and get another one shipped out, all the while I'm going to be without music games or youtube as my old computer is already in a landfill somewhere.

I'd say avoid this and spend 4 more dollars and get the MSI motherboard that comes with a newer audio chipset, ASROCK? More like AS-SILENT. Now when I get a new one that lasts longer than 2 weeks, I might consider changng this to a 3 star review, but for now, my verdict is avoid the headache and go with a better brand.

The worst part of all of this, I spent 25 dollars having this shipped to me in 2 days, and I bet newegg doesn't reship the replacement that fast..

Other Thoughts: See what I get for being such a cheapskate? 4 dollars more and I could have had a MSI or ASUS motherboard...
