Experience: 20 Days
Pros
Easy Bios upgrade
Features set perfectly matching mainstream users
Price
Cons
None unless you want to rig multiple video cards
Summary
I purchased this Mobo instead of the ASRock with a budget-oriented mindset and I was very pleasantly surprised.

The 8+2 Phase is rumored to be nice for overclocking (more stable) and I'm guessing it will hold up its own against the next AMD CPUs.

Very good board for overclocking. All the features with no extra frills are there. Great Bang for the Buck.

If you need a board for a multiple video card setup, you might want to dish out a few more bucks and get the 990FX version instead.

Pros
Good Price
Lots of features
Ultra Durable
Full size board with 9 mounting holes
Rev. 3
Cons
Bios is very good but does not allow for running all fan headers in silent mode
Summary
Put in a Phenom 965, 8 gigs of Kingston, Geforce 660 and Muskin 240 gig SSD. Boot times are super fast, games run super smooth. I can verify that I got a Rev. 3 board. If you're not looking to spend a ton of cash on a system, this board really fits the bill.

Pros
Inexpensive, good quality
Cons
None
Summary
Not too shabby for a hundred bucks. Everything works. Installed Win 7 without a hitch.

It seems I got lucky and received Ver. 3 of this mobo. Thanks Ncix.

Pros
Works great!
Cons
Rev 1.2 not 3.0
Summary
Just like the other reviewer said, they still have 1.2 boards. Kind of sad about it.

Pros
Great price for 8+2 power phase! Gigabyte quality, coupled with great connectivity.
Cons
Still shipping old revision of board as of 2013.04.09
Summary
Well, for what I paid for this board it's a GREAT purchase. The only issue I could find with this board would be that I received the previous revision of that board that does not have a UEFI bios. It's not a HUGE issue, but since the newer revision board have been out since October of 2012, I would just expect the older stock to have cycled out by now. Oh well...
Supplied bios worked with my piledriver FX-6300 cpu with no problems whatsoever. I can't wait to start overclocking the chip when I get some time.

Pros
Price ($103 Price Matched)
8+2 VRM
USB 3.0
SATA3
Dual-BIOS (Rev 3.0+ UEFI)
Cons
Crossfire support is only 16x / 4x, it'll work for some lower end Crossfire setups but overall you should pick a different board if you're planning on using Crossfire.
Summary
This motherboard within it's price range is possibly the best purchase to make, unlike the other $100 ($103 price matched) motherboards this has a 8+2 VRM Power delivery system which will provide better OC's / more stable OC's.

Experience: 8 Months
Pros
Everything you could possibly need for a lower level build.
Cons
Only three 3 pin connectors
Summary
I have no regrets with this board. It may not be the prettiest board out there but it has all the bells and whistles you could possibly need for a lower level build.
