    from completed build My take on the stormtrooper look

    I don't have much to say about this board. It made OC'ing as easy as ever and it didn't come broken. Five stars for that!

    Fit the color scheme I was looking for, and had enough features for my build. The BIOS was absolutely awesome, and it was really easy to get going!

    Seems solid so far. Nice looking, BIOS is easy to use. Not many fan headers, but it's sort of a budget board.

    I will put it bluntly. This is the most gorgeous motherboard I have ever worked with. All black with the perfect licks of white, enough to be noticed but certainly not overpowering. It's not a shoddy board as far as performance goes either, I've found. Considering I can do 5.04GHz with my Pentium on it, with the cheapest AIO water cooler on the market, it must be pretty decent!

    I love this motherboard. Originally, it was chosen since it is one of the only Z97 mobos to have a well done black/white color scheme, but then I really started to love its simplistic no frills look. I was a little leery due to the lack of reviews, but when I pulled it out of the box I fell in love and haven't had any reason to change my mind since. It has space for all my components and installation was super easy.

    Since I'm an average PC user, I didn't need any of all those fancy motherboard features. This does the job perfectly and the black PCB is gorgeous. The reason I took this instead of a cheaper one (I don't really need the Z97 platform because I have a Xeon) is that it fitted very well with my black and white colour scheme. Also, I might be running SLI in the future, and this motherboard supports it.

    Really love the way this motherboard looks. Fits my build nicely and the bios was easy to navigate through.

    Black and White, pretty frosty. Almost as much as my soul. Anyway, it's a nice motherboard. No SLI bridge included, even though it is an SLI mobo. Strange...

    Get it for the looks and nothing else. If you are expecting a feature-packed board because of the price, you will be disappointed. All you get in the box are 2 SATA cables. No extras whatsoever. Not even an SLI bridge, even though this is advertised as an SLI board. DERP.
