I have this board it has certainly not disappointed me. I'd say it's worth it's price. I got to 4.7GHz stable with my H100i at 1.51V on my FX-8320. Board is going strong.

That board Probably has the best price/performance ratio. it is basically a slightly downgraded crosshair v.

Well thanks for the feedback, so far the board is a complete wow from my Asus M5A97 LE 2.0. To me any way It seems that it plays my games better than that old board. was thinking that the old board was bottle necking my GPU only had a Phenom II X4 965 BE on it and a Evga 660 FTW 3gb signature 2 GPU running on it
