Nice design and intuitive BIOS, very easy to use.
Unfortunately I don't have much else to say about it because mine arrived broken. The PCI-E slots did not function, PCI did, but not express, this meant no graphics card. Likely a south bridge problem or the ports themselves.

Either way, I got a refund and bought an ASUS motherboard for about £25 more which I'd recommend doing, seriously, don't cheap out on a motherboard, it's the most important component.

Only other problem I had was the proximity of the RAM slots to the CPU socket meant I had to fit my cooler the opposite way.

A lot of people recommend this motherboard and I can't blame them, don't let my poor experience sway you to much, but keep it in mind that it can happen to you.

Digital display is great help for a first time builder like me, helps you quickly diagnose any problems on those first tricky boots.
I dont know if all boards are like this but when connecting things to the board in places it was quite bendy / fin not that this is a major issue once its all together.

DR Debug, love it.
Just a great board form the price
A bit flimsy. You will notice that when you try and fit in ram, it feels like the board is going to snap. But apart from that. 10/10

Plugged in processor and memory and it worked
doesn't have too many unnecessary extras
32GB ram and 3570k working fine
can update the bios from the bios so no OS/usb disk needed
Processor retention seemed really stiff but it seems to be just how LGA sockets are. (i was scared i was going to break the processor but it was fine
you need quite a lot of drivers it seems, but that might be standard for newer boards.
BIOS interface is a little daunting...
