Good points:
Brilliant board for the budget-conscious buyer. Very fast. Robust. Does what it says. Supports Pcie 3 bus. Plenty of expansion slots.
Bad points:
As I read somewhere else - 'it won't win any awards for its looks'. This is true. But do you really care about that - unless you have a window into your rig..? Don't quite know why they hose a light blue and cream colour scheme -- heyho!
There are no IDE connectors so you need SATA drives for this board. I tried an adapter for one older drive and it didn't like it. So I bought an inexpensive enclosure for it instead.
Other than that, this is a really fast quality mobo for an amazing price.

Good points:
Good Z77 chipset.
Working perfectly with GTX760 old Z68 wouldn't power up.
This board is excellent value for money.
V. Good performance gaming @ full 1080p
Bad points:
Uefi / bios interface is a lil slow or laggy nice idea but i really wish companies would properly test these ideas before whapping them out like a gimmick.
Doesn't detract from overall system performance, or stability I'm just nitpicking =)

William, Clynderwen Built 4 PC's

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent overall purchase. Perfectly suited to my gaming rig and allows great expansion where needed with the two PCI Express 3.0 slots. Everything simply compatible. Great ATX Motherboard.
Bad points:
Limited SATA ports. Just 3 SATA3 and 2 SATA6. Not major but a comment I could make. Bigger GPU's can also obstruct PCI 1 slots.
