Most helpful reviews

Adi,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Really nice design. Otherwise everything seems built to last with very durable parts.

Compatible with all other items in my build

Suits my needs performance-wise (gaming). Also really like the alternative BIOS with mouse input. Makes OCing simpler with the OC preset on/off switch on the board itself.

So cheap for such a quality product.
Bad points:
-1 point in design because the last RAM slot is too close to the CPU, so you're forced to go for a low profile RAM if you've got a large cooling system for your cpu

Graham, Martley, Worcs IT Consultant

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Easy to assemble and clear instruction booklet. Fired up first time with no problems with RAM and other peripherals.
Bad points:
Like a lot of motherboards the SATA connectors once in the case are hard to get at when attaching the L shaped SATA leads.

Ryan, Redbourn PC Gamer.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The one button over locking via OCGenieII is excellent and so easy to use. The colour scheme and aesthetics are great and it performs really well.
Bad points:
The RAM slots are a little close to the CPU socket so you would have trouble installing tall RAM in the closest slot with an aftermarket cooler. But I guess that's the case with most motherboards.

Jim, Glasgow

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
plenty of space for expansion
great design
integrated debug indicator
click bios
good system fan support
good heatsinking on chipsets
nice memory bandwidth
Bad points:
pcie config is a bit strange to me , depending on config you can run 3 cards but two will have less bandwidth than the other one.
would like a bit more SATA 3 ports. plenty SATA 2 though so not a huge problem.
only one USB3 port expansion. you get the two on the back as well though so not too bad.
