Pros: Low power, high performance. Since I'm not interested in OC, this is a great fit. Software rendering of video is incredibly fast. Even with the limited retail cooler, runs above rated clock speed for extended periods (3.6+ GHz) with all cores loaded.
Other Thoughts: The other benefit is a platform upgrade. The capabilities in the Z170 chipset are excellent. Highly recommended for users that have use case that exploits all eight threads.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: A solid MB, works with new a10-6700. 6 SATA3 ports. Seems stable.
Cons: Advertised as supporting high speed DDR3 memory (2133, 2400). It does not, hence the "2.0" revision where they have removed the feature. Board recognizes XMP 1.3 profile for DDR3 2400 memory, but will not go any higher than 1866.
Other Thoughts: Inexpensive, functional, but oversold on non existent features.READ FULL REVIEW
