This is an ok board if your looking to put together a machine for normal use. Tho the first thing you will notice right off the bat is, the case fan header on the motherboard has no speed control. When a case fan is plugged in the fan runs at full speed constantly, creating tons of unnecessary noise. The second this you will notice is the BIOS is a little bit wonky (something Biostar is known for). It has a pretty flimsy PCB but that's common among most cheap boards these days so it isn't a problem. The dimm sockets do feel a little cheap, but again nothing critical unless you are changing out ram constantly. I would strongly recommend spending $10 more and getting the A880GZ or the ASRock 960GM/U3S3.
