Reviews

from completed build NeoBlue

Great mobo - looks sick, too. Huge problem with it is the location of the CPU power connector. It was literally JUST far enough that I couldn't reach the cable to it. I had to wrap the wire under my PCI cards to reach across and plug it in properly. Plenty of space on it but no CMOS or BIOS reset buttons, nor any OC auto buttons. I just personally find them convenient. BIOS interface is nice and easy to use, and the mobo's layout is generic and simple.

This is a great motherboard other than the drivers they send with it. You have to have a second computer that can access the internet to get updated drivers because the drivers sent with it are broken (at least for me) and wouldn't allow me to use my Ethernet cable. Once I finally got the new drivers put onto it the board worked great. No complaints other than that.
