Most helpful reviews

Martin, Beaconsfield PC Game Machine Builder

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Amazing value for money

Asus M5A97 Evo R2.0 board with the easy overclock BIOS. With a single click I can bang the FX 9370 Vishera CPU up from 4.4GHz to 4.87GHz.

This is better value than the Asus M5A99X Evo R2.0, yet if you want to run the 990X socket then...well.

I am impressed with this board's bang for buck at only 85 quid. It's a no brainer.

Jullian,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Supports all the latest am3+ CPU and supports up to 16gb of ram it has built in audio capabilities supporting up to 8 Chanel surround (though a sound card is recommended) and it supports 4 USB ports 2 at the back and a front panel connector for USB 3.0 it also comes with the latest bios which is great for a first time builder like myself.... All round great product for a budget gaming rig
Bad points:
the second pci e slot is 4x and not 16x so sli or crossfire wouldn't be used to its full potential

And if you have a hefty graphics card it takes up alot of room and leaves hardly any space for capture cards or wireless cards etc
