Pros

Easy instillation
Cons
1 little thing about the CPU fan, see summery
Summary
If you have a CPU closed liquid cooling loop like my corsair hydro series (the 2 fan model, 1 rad), you might run into a little problem when you connect the 3 pin connector to the 4 pin CPU fan connected on this motherboard: basically, without that 4th pin it seems that the board has trouble actually sensing the speed of the fans, and as such it is constantly running them on max, and as such quite loudly. In my last ASUS board, I had the same problem at first, but in that board's BIOS there was an option to change the CPU fan type, and it fixed the issue. No such option in this board, and no BIOS update  that addresses it. There might be a way to manually take control of the issue with after market software in the OS, but I have not looked into it yet.

Pros

Cheap
Cons
No font panel USB 3.0 header
Summary
Wish I would've caught that this doesn't include a font panel USB 3.0 header. I bought a cheap add in card and it works so-so at best.

Pros

Cheap, onboard gpu and plenty of sata ports
Cons
No USB 3.0 header
Summary
Using this motherboard as a home server and it works perfectly for my uses. Although I was a bit disappointed/surprised that it did not have any motherboard header for USB 3.0.

Experience: 3 Weeks

Pros

USB 3.0, 32GB Ram capable
Cons
No heatsinks on the mosfets, No USB 3.0 Internal headers, No SLI/Crossfire
Summary
I was looking for a mobo for my FX-6300 to go inside an mATX case. The options for AMD motherboards at the micro ATX form factor are sparse... very sparse, but this is what I settled on.
Right now this meets my needs and I am more than pleased with it. At my own risk I've managed a stable overclock of 4.5Ghz on my processor, although I'd definitely feel more comfortable pushing even further if the mosfets had heatsinks.
Temps are very cool regardless and I can't complain. Would recommend, it is what it is.
