from completed build High end budget gaming build

It's not ideal, but if you're budget is that tight it's a justifiable purchase. Don't plan on overclocking with this motherboard, I'd honestly recommend saving a little more and getting something else like the MSI 970 or gigabyte 970a-ds3p. Also despite the pictures the real color is earwax yellow.

from completed build My replacement build 2017

It is a great board for the price, but it lacks many overclocking futures on the stock bios. For example, the ram could not be overclocked passed 1866mhz and when it crashed because a fail Overclock, you need to open up the case and manually reset the cmos jumpers unlike my old motherboard, the asus p5q turbo, which would just display a message, discard the overclock, and automatically go to the bios. Furthermore the jumpers are located to the right of the topmost PCI-E slot meaning in order to reset cmos, you need to take off the GPU. The 4+1 phase vrm is on the low side but could still handle a small overclock (my fx6100 is oc from 3.3ghz to 4ghz) and could supply 1.7v to 2x8gb ram for extended amount of time.

Overall it is a great board for the price, but it has bad cmos jumper placement, lacks overclocking some features and USB 3.0 headers.
