Price History (Excluding Tax & Combo Deals) History:


from completed build Theseus (first build)

Good cheap motherboard for AMD builds. It would be nice if it supported SATA 6Gb/s and had multiple chassis fan connectors, though.

from completed build Budget Gaming PC (First Build)

Very nice MOBO, I/O panel difficulties.

from completed build Under £400 Gaming PC - Updated

This motherboard does not have front USB 3.0 headers. You will need an adapter or a case with USB 2.0 to plug it in. Apart from that it is very good.

Great motherboard, great bios and easy installation minor trouble, only trouble I had with this was installing the RAM, wouldn't latch correctly, and i/o shield installation.

(note - was my first time building.)

from completed build Beta Maxwell

This board does NOT have a usb 3.0 header. Functions fine, but I did not enjoy building with it. Pick another motherboard if you have the option

from completed build First gaming pc!

It's not the greatest motherboard, that's for sure, the bios looks like your running a Windows 95, but it gets the job done just fine, so I'm over all pleased with it. Do note, this does NOT have usb 3.0 front headers, it does on the back though.
