Pros: Nice motherboard layout.
Fast delivery from newegg.
Documentation OK from a high-level but includes all the motherboards in the C60X series.
Cons: Just got it three days ago. DOA. At least mostly DOA. Fans power up, but rest of board is dead. Replaced everything - memory in many different configurations, CPUs, keyboards, mouse, monitor, power supply - on the motherboard without success. Dr. Debug dark.
Would be nice to include USB3. Limited number of USB2 available.
Some fan headers hard to use.
Other Thoughts: I was really hoping I would not have to go through the effort to build up the mb, then take it apart again to send it back. Next time I will bench test it before I put it in the case and start connecting up everything.
Will report on the newegg RMA process When everybody returns to normal business after the weekend.
Pros: Excellent bang for the buck, nothing even comes close at its price point. Hands down. Great multiprocessor.
Cons: Heat sink is only barely adequate for stock speeds. Fairly low stock clock speed. See below.
Other Thoughts: Put this beast in a motherboard that will support easy overclocking. get a better heatsink / fan assembly and mildly overclock to 4000 / 4200 mhz. I'm using a Zalman 9500 with very good results. That speed makes this CPU sing whatever song you want.
Teamed up with a decent motherboard, mild overclocking and a SSD, it's very hard to beat for a general use computer.
Pros: Nice layout, SATA 6gb, USB 3.0.
Cons: One of the memory slots (the "B" slot) was DOA.
Other Thoughts: I built the system using a FX-6300. Booted on 1 x 2Gb memory stick to check the board. Was reasonably fast using a SSD. Drivers loaded smoothly from the accompanying DVD. Good documentation manual. No glitches except for the DOA memory slot. RMA'ed back to Newegg without any delay. Board currently in transit back to Newegg for exchange for another identical board (fully working, I hope), not refund.READ FULL REVIEW
