Pros: Price to performance ratio (cost was $144 at time of purchase), Overclockability, Quality components
Cons: Strange voltage, Cheaper aesthetic appearance as compared to the Extreme3
This board has been great in many ways: The UEFI BIOS has many features that look cool and function greatly. You can use your mouse in the BIOS (but I still prefer the keyboard). There are many options for overclocking, for example I was able to overclock my PCI-E frequency from 100Mhz to 110Mhz which in turn increased my graphics performance. Speaking of graphics cards, this motherboard allowed me to SLI two 560ti 448's which was a major selling point.
Overclocking the cpu was a bit of a chore because I lost at the silicone lottery with my FX-6100, I know this because I put a friend's FX-6300 in and it overclocked much higher at lower voltages. I had my 6100 running at 4.5Ghz at an idle voltage of 1.488v and a load voltage of 1.504v, the strange thing is I had the voltage set at 1.4625v in the BIOS. Also another strange thing was if I LLC set on at all it wouldn't boot or would crash under load. Anyways, I had to down my overclock to 4Ghz because Far Cry 3 would make it bluescreen. For some reason Far Cry 3 was the only thing that would make it bluescreen at 4.5Ghz, well it doesn't anymore at least.
So all-in-all this motherboard has had its issues, but the main thing is it has lasted for more than a year with the abuse I give it, the same can't be said for other components. Now that I think back on it, this motherboard and I have been through a lot, I got to 5Ghz on this board, I once pushed the voltage to past 1.6v (that was a bad decision by the way), despite this abuse the board keeps on chugging forward.
