    from completed build FIREHAZARD V2

    My dad got this at the same time he got the 8320e for me as a Christmas present. It's $10 after the $40 Micro Center combo discount and $30 MIR. $100 total and I got an upgrade that costs only as much as an i3 by itself.

    The actual board? I have absolutely no complaints about it. Others may hate the red, but I don't really mind it. This board comes with 2 CPU fan headers and 4 system fan headers (CPU1, SYS2 and SYS4 headers are all PWM, the others are 3pin headers). It supports the 9590 and 9370 (if for some reason you wanted to do that).

    from completed build Hyper Beast 2.0

    Decent, not as good as the FX-Killer series especially in terms of gaming. The usb 3.0 connector is in the worst place EVER. Other people mention other issues with this board so nothing much I can say other than that I love the color scheme of the board, matches the RAM perfectly along with the overall build.

    from completed build $1300 Gaming PC set up

    The price was cheap but it was not made cheaply. The design and coolers look amazing. the only down side is the placement of the USB 3.0 headers. It can handle overclocking and has amazing power phases. It has probably the best I/O for a board with that price.
