This board was easy to use. The UEFI was not necessarily the easiest I've ever used, but it did ultimately do everything I asked it to. Construction was adequate for my needs.
Seems like a solid motherboard, great for budget builds. Its a bit finicky though and takes patience to set up properly. The BIOS has lots of options including some basic overclocking.
Great motherboard very well priced and is very nice to work with, the only problem i have with this motherboard is that there is no USB 3 headers for the front panel, only USB 2 but there is 2 USB 3 ports on board so they are there if you want them.
For the purpose of a starter build and budget, there is no reason to turn down this motherboard. However, there is little upgradability for RAM, as it only holds two sticks. There are no USB 3.0 headers, and some of the power ports are awkwardly placed. I have to have a fan cord go over my CPU AND GPU to plug in. BIOS is very user friendly but has awkward choppy mouse movement. If you plan on staying with the FM2+ Socket, save your money and invest in something w/ more features.
Startup was a little rocky at first. The manual is severely lacking. The labels are hard to see, and the connections are not listed in the manual. Once I got it started up, though, it worked extremely well.
Worked great didn't auto detect my 2133Mhz ram off the bat but, a few tweaks had it going no issues even has some moderate OCing
Just a normal motherboard, nothing special
There's not really a whole lot to say about this motherboard honestly. It has 4 on-board usb's, and 2 headers for all of my inputs. Other than that, its your standard motherboard without any special features on it.
can't access bios?
I'm really not a fan. It's an okay board, kind of a laggy BIOS, and connecting the CPU power connector is a living hell. Go with an ATX board.
