I bought this board to build myself a mid-high range gaming/general purpose PC.
I payed just less than £100 for this board and it has served me well ever since.
My i5 slipped right in and everything has plugged in well and have had no errors.
I have upgraded the bios on it too and with the built in system for upgrading bios' it went flawlessly.
Overclocking my CPU was easy with this board, was just a straight change to manual clock speed then upped it.
This board has great connectivity, thing's connect easily, and just about all the latest hardware is compatible.
The thing looks great too, well colour coded and well set out.
From my opinion this is one of the best mATX boards around. It performs well, boot's well, looks good and it very cheap for what it is.
Memory fits in well too.
If you want a cheap board, that's up to current standards, performs well, and is a great price, grab this board!
