Most helpful reviews

Kirk, Computer Technician

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The setup and layout of the board is very good, meaning your graphics cards will not get in the way, of those SATA ports. Unlike other boards.

I also saw a speed increase from my tech, just to changing to this board... Very impressed. ;)
Bad points:
Only bad points, I can see is the sound connections for the 7.1. Why they did not include to extra ports on the back, I do not know!

Bob,

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Nice board does what it should.
Bad points:
5.1 Sound. It's a pain to setup because theres no info in the book. What you have to do is run the realtek audio manager and right click the blue, green and pink socket icons in turnh and retask each socket for it to work. One extra page in the manual with a picture showing this would have saved days messing about.

Robert, St. Neots I am a techy

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This board does exactly what it say's on the tin.
Bad points:
The aux 12v supply is awkward to connect, but then I have fat fingers. This is a very minor problem with an otherwise very good board.

Christine,

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very good value for money. I thought I was going to have to settle for something that was bottom of the range due to lack of money but was able to afford this without too much difficulty
Bad points:
Don't try and fit it if you don't know what you're doing. I got a very knowledgeable friend to fit this and, at times, even he really had to think what needed doing to get it up and running.
