Pros
-Easy setup
-Nice features for the price
-Overclocks well
-Very stable
Cons
-None
Summary
Great board, setup was really easy. I really like the click bios. I haven't had any stability problems. My only gripe with it is it lacks firewire ports. I didn't want to list it as con because firewire is pretty much obsolete, but I'm sure many people are like me and have older devices that still need a firewire port. Other than that it's a fantastic board and I highly recommend it.
