Thanks skyn3t. I mainly game, and I can definitely see improvements - lots smoother..
The mobo.. good and bad and ugly..The Good
Bios is great, overclocking etc is just so simple.
i.e. I updated the bios, set the date, set the cpu to 48x, volts to 1.3 and the xmp on - and that was it, cpu runs at 4800, memory at 2400
(max temp low 50's with low fans, it's high 20's ambient)The Bad
USB3 barely runs any of my bits, just seems like there's not enough power at the sockets..
G19 keyboard and razer deathadder mouse run ok, and my g930 headset work fine
I mean my htc one x phone, nope, device not recognised
cruiser voyager usb3 stick, yup, but only in the usb2 ports
my usb dvb-t2 tv tuner - nope
rocksmith guitar cable - nope
Canon printer - nope
(I'm on to tech support about the problems, just hope it's a "switch" needs flicking in the bios lol)The Ugly
WHY OH WHY put a bloody bright blue led in the middle of something that is so obviously trying to be a red motherboard!
..oh and the audio boost lighting is a bit ghey pink
Verdict: a good looking motherboard with great features for the price (if you want red) Edited by JohnnyEars - 7/9/13 at 9:35am
