Price History (Excluding Tax & Combo Deals) History:


Good board, does what is asked and has plenty of options for overclocking.

from completed build The Challenger!

Heard a lot of people having issues with this board on NewEgg but I am yet to have an issue with it. I like all the USB ports and the built in audio card is fantastic!

from completed build Potato Rig

Decent motherboard for budget,has a lot features for low price.No problems with it yet

from completed build First build - Gaming

Okay board for the price. Not good for overclocking, kind of a poor design.

from completed build Knight- $600 Build

Sweet looking board and there were no problems.

from completed build Friend Build

Motherboard has enough features for what he's using it for so it's fine.

Good solid, cheap, budget mobo. Good features, USB 3.0 headers, good I/O features (I/O shield is a little cheap but w/ever.) Three fan headers + CPU fan, Great on board audio in my opinion. Something to bare in mind is the power phase of this motherboard, it only uses 4 +1, this means it is NOT good for overclocking as the board cannot handle large increases in voltage. The mobo is very important for OCing, but for non OCing purposes this is fine. BIOS is decent enough.

from completed build Well....Sh[I]t

ay man its good i got more express slots might add a audio card if it does a differnace

from completed build Bang for buck: 1080p gaming AMD

I have certain issues with this mobo. if you are a heavy overclocked this is not one for you. I have noticed that the read/write speed of the bus is not that high if you compare it with Asus or MSI. Sometimes all the USB 3.0 jacks stops working abruptly and then you need to re-install drives. I would suggest to but a 990FXA series board rather than this.

from completed build Gaming while having 600 euros

Cheap, but pretty good motherboard for small budget.
