from completed build SideWinder - Humble Beginnings

Drivers weren't compatible with Windows 10, and has almost no Overclocking potential, but it works.

The Bios does look a little old fashioned. There is also only one fan slot so that is kind of annoying. I have no other complaints and looks very ascetically pleasing. Very solid mother board especially for the price. Mother board color matches nicely with my RAM.

from completed build Super Cheap Budget Build

After looking at the specs the board, it has the most upgrade ability of its class. Unlike the other choices this board has PCIe 3x and has the PCIe 1x on the top, which is key because most have the 1x below the 3x making it useless when adding a graphics card. The down side to all of the cheap mother boards are they don't have SATA3 which gives you 6 GHz to the sata drives.

It works well enough.

I really like this mobo. It has all of the features I wanted on the cheap with the exception of SATA III. The BIOS is simple to OC. Nice board.
