    I have no complaints other than IO shield is really weird, it might just be me, because this was my first build but it has these weird prong things on them and they were annoying as hell and I just ended up snapping a bunch of them off. also the yellow dims and sata ports are kind of ugly, but that's more my personal preference than a fault of the board.

    aesthetics and annoying IO prongs aside, this motherboard is great.

    Nice motherboard for the price, excellent navigable BIOS. Unfortunately no LN2 switch, power button, or BIOS reset switch. Very sharp.

    A88X chipset for $50, good to pair with X4-845 for an aprox $130 Canadian combo

    could use better overclocking features, but for "basic" OC its ok

    It's a great motherboard for the price! The colors aren't really too great on it, but if you're case is closed, you wouldn't even know the difference.

    Good motherboard for the price, best chipset you can get for this socket. Overclocks pretty well, although it couldn't handle my RAM's XMP, although that may have been the RAM's fault. Look's ok as long as you don't mind the color scheme. It's always nice to have USB 3.0.

    pros: Extremely reliable Intuitive front panel connectors no coil whine comes with screw and adhesive hardware and back I/O plate comes with driver disc for on board device drivers. The user manual is VERY detailed and helpful. Great Price Cons: Only con I can think of is the color, brown. The color didn't matter much to me because the case I put it in doesn't have a window

    Has everything I need, I was worried about other people having issues in other reviews about the bios not supporting kaveri Apu's, but it worked fine with the 7870k straight out the box. Flash bios worked perfectly. No complaints.

    Good mobo for budget builds. My only issue was my graphics card covered up the only PCIE slot this board has so i had to get an extension cable for me wifi card.

    Good little unit. More PCI-e 3.0 slots would've been great
