Good motherboard, good price, great on board audio (ALC1150). Wifi is average, but the lack of fan headers kinda bugged me. Not too big of a problem in my case since it had a fan splitter. Also, the placement of the headers/connectors were kinda problematic for me. Not the smartest board layout IMO, especially considering where the 8-pin CPU connector was. I had to bend that cable all sorts of ways to keep it from getting caught by my fans.

The first time I put everything together in the case after it posted, the computer hung on "getting devices ready." I rebooted, and I got a screen which said "your computer did not boot properly. This might be due to a recent hardware change. Please insert your Windows Installation disc and select 'Repair My Operating System'" or something along the lines of that. I did just that and for some reason it booted just fine afterwards but hung again on getting devices ready. I tried one more time and my computer finally booted but for some reason Windows was bugging the hell out. Recycle bin was gone, lost the ability to put my computer to sleep, among other things. I assumed it had to do with conflicting drivers since I switched from an ASUS board to an ASRock board, and I ended up just formatting my SSD (which caused the computer to freeze, but a reboot fixed the job). Everything works fine as intended now.

I wanted to have a blue based theme and this board fit the budget well. It was pretty competitively priced as compared to similar models from different manufacturers. The onboard WIFI is really good since currently I don't have an Ethernet connection in my office. The BIOS is wonderfully layed out and easy navigate and I like that the BIOS is HD. It more appealing to look at and use.

Onboard ALC1150 audio is really great. Supports M.2 modules (42mm lenght). It's 2018 and still I can't let it go, only upgraded CPU..
