Colin, Gamer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Absolutely stunning value for money. All the latest features. 3rd gen cpu support.
Bad points:
No SLi and limited crossfire support so really only single gpu friendly but then 'hardcore' gamers will spend 3 times as much on a motherboard...

PD, South Wales

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
A decent quality item, with a few extra accessories. 4 DIMM Slots, USB 3.0, extra fan connection (always handy). Free heatsink and fan included.
Bad points:
No USB 3.0 header/socket for connecting the USB 3.0 socket on the front of the case (mine anyway). Also, not too clear on whether this item supports the 3rd generation of processors ("Ivybridge"). May need a firmware update
