Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It is a very good motherboard and very well priced, great for any PC build.
Bad points:
The mounts were not very well aligned on the board so it was rather tough to screw it into the case. The board could of easily been damaged during this process, if it was not for this I would of given it 10/10 instead I am giving it 8/10.

Only other things was no on board wireless.

Pawel, Birmingham Experience PC builder

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Physically easy to install. BIOS easy to manage.
Bad points:
Depth of the board means the backend is not supported on pillars in the case, so it flexes when inserting power. No firewire IEEE1394 support on the board.
