Rated 5 out of 5 by Shobah Works great and looks great
The heat sinks look really cool especially if you're going for blue LEDs! The CPU fan bracket was easy to replace, the 'memok!' function was useful for detecting RAM problems. All in all it was easy to install, fits all the components and looks awesome! Also it has a GREAT stock BIOS.

Rated 2 out of 5 by D7Torres Audio not working correctly
In general the motherboard is doing its job.
But I have a problem with the audio. I connect the microphone and the headphones to the front panel of my case, and the microphone is picking up whatever I listening in my headphones.
A lot of people is saying that is due to some missconfigured options, drivers.. etc. It's not that, it's hardware, the channels are not well isolated or something.
I was hoping the problem was the front pannel of my case, but after I bought other front pannel (for fan control) which has also audio i/o I tested it with the new pannel and the problem persisted...
To be fair, I have to say that is not the end of the world. If you connect your headphones in the front and the microphone in the back, you should be fine. If your microphone is included in a webcam and connected by USB, you should be fine as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Callumpy Cheap board, but very good.
A very cheap motherboard, perfect for anyone building a rig on a budget. It can accommodate the FX CPUs without an update to the BIOS. It also looks fairly pretty with the nice blue and black theme.
I recommend you build out of the case with this board, especially if you have a large air cooler. The header for CPU fan is at the top center of the board between two other fan headers, can be quite tricky to get them all in properly.
Also, not sure if the board or the CPU is at blame, I don't use AMD very often, but the CPU temperatures report very incorrectly in software like CoreTemp or AIDA64.

Purchased this for a budget build and it works brilliant, no need for a bios update to support the FX cpu's either, it also seems pretty well laid out as you would expect. And a pretty decent overclocker running a fx 6300 at 4.5ghz rock solid all within decent temps under load.
