decent board with plenty of options
no USB3.0
Pair with a Pentium G2030 this makes a great basic computer. For $110 I got this board and the CPU and was able to get a basic computer up and running that works great and runs cool. No complaints what so ever.

Experience: 2 Days
 Verified Owner
Cheap, works, good brand
2 ram slots
Paired with a i3 3220 for a small machine designed to play LoL and do some office/facebook. FOr 50 buck its a steal. No plan on OC or anything like that. Would recommand for any budget

Experience: 3 Months

Small, Compact, HDMI, Cheap
No USB3 and DVI
Perfect buddy with INTEL G540 CPU, has HDMI so you can hook up to your big HDTV.
It would be perfect if it has usb3 and sata3.
But it still worth the money.

Experience: 10 Days

Works as expected.
Good motherboard for the price. I am using it in a HTPC with a G550 Celeron. No overclocking has been tested yet.

If this was in a bigger case it might be nice to have one more case fan header, but not necessary for a budget build.

The only thing you give up by getting this motherboard is USB3.0, but for the cost it is hard to complain.

-Good htpc board
-just 4 pin cpu power not 8
For the price point you really cant complain basic 1155 board with HDMI, works fine with a core i3. There is a bit of coilwhine when under load but hard to notice unless you are close (might just be mine) Wish it had 8 pin cpu power not 4. Would probably buy something a bit more better next time.

Price, can use Ivy Bridge CPU's, PCI-e V3 with Ivy cpu, well rounded features.
Would have liked 1 more fan header, missing SATA 3, picky with older power supplies
Got for a budget build, using G860 Dual-core processor. Will upgrade to an I-5 Ivy in the future-dependent on needs. Initially got no video on boot up, thought it was a ram issue but ruled that out, tried a newer power supply and presto! Couldn't care less about usb3 but would have liked sata 3, but for the price of this motherboard, i'm not complaining too much. Only 2 fan headers-would have liked 3 but I guess that might stress the board too much.

Experience: 13 Days

drivers disc has "install all" mandatory drivers option. makes life easy.
no pci for my old sound card.
Good for simple build. generic 1155 socket so you can swap out for something else down the road.
