- Nice BIOS
- Great OC Settings
- Crappy I/O Shield
Excellent budget motherboard. Does its job.
However it only has 2 ram slots so keep that in mind if you're going to upgrade your ram.
For the time, this board is great value for money. It offers features that most people still won't use but that's the same with most motherboards anyway. The BIOS is very easy to use and offers some overclocking of the CPU (if you have a K series CPU), although if you bought this board to Overclock then you've bought the wrong board as it's a H series board and has a 4 phase power design with no cooling. The board is quite narrow which is both a good and bad thing as it reduces costs but reduces expand-ability and makes the RAM slots very close to the CPU cooler.
I've found myself using the feature to use both Intel IGPU and my 970 to power two monitors and the I/O is enough for my personal needs. The on board Audio is not great but it's a budget board so you get what you pay for. Overall the board does the job and if you need a cheap board for an LGA 1150 CPU then I would recommend this board but the platform is outdated now and better boards on the newer platform are more viable now.
