A great pair for the G3258. Cheap and allows overclocking!

A standard, well-built low end motherboard. Doesn't have as many features, but for my needs, it's perfect.

from completed build Noob's First Practice Build
This motherboard is commonly used with the G3258 and has good reviews and overclocking functionality. The price was perfect for my budget as well so it was an obvious choice. No USB 3.0 headers but even if there are I am not sure if they would work on the USB 2.0 ports of my case. The BIOS was already up-to-date when I got this motherboard, and enabling overclocking was out of the box and easy.
Installing the motherboard and connecting the cables was the trickiest and most challenging part of my build since I have always been intimidated by the idea of it, trying to figure out which goes where and paying attention to the positives and negatives. Now that I have successfully managed to install a CPU/cooler to the motherboard and attach/wire the whole thing into the case I feel great and more confident to tackle my future dream PC build!

from completed build We talking about PRACTICE
Well-built, cheap, and can overclock the G3258. Point-and-click BIOS is a big step up from the ancient P55 board in my current build.
I bought this in August so I had to update the BIOS to overclock the G3258.
4/5 because a USB 3.0 header would've been nice, but at this price I can't complain.

No USB 3.0 ports, but otherwise, amazing for the price. Gets the job done in a tight budget situation.

from completed build Yet another budget build.
I bought this board solely to overclock a G3258 to use as an HTPC. Most definitely this board was up to the task, got my CPU to a stable 4.4GHz from a stock 3.2. It only has 2 slots for RAM but if you're gonna spend this little on a motherboard what do you expect? This was for a simple budget build that really exceeded all my expectations.

from completed build Very Low Budget Office PC for my Dad
The motherboard was a very good price and had a lot of good features with good reviews online so went with that. Works great so far as I can tell and will check on everything when I visit home again.

Wish i would have went with an atx motherboard it would have future proofed my pc more only consider micro atx if you are going to make a purpose built media pc. The usb 3.0 plug is very loose but still functions, it has held up well over the span of 6 years and is still working great for overclocking my core i5-4690k.

For the price, this is honestly a pretty well made motherboard. It doesn't have many of the more high-end features or options of more expensive MOBOs, but for a simple build using one GPU (or a standard desktop PC), it fits the bill. Oddly enough, this board also supports overclocking.

The actual board is an P34, but it wasnt in the list. Great little (dirt cheap) board. Gets the job done, and seem to be staying okay cool. I was concerned at first that the VRM circuitry would be getting too hot, but i seem fine when i put my hand over them. Only has 1 controllable 3pin fan header, which isnt really practially anyway, so i ended up using resistors to quiet down the fans.
