If you dont need more than one PCIe (assuming youre putting in a chunky GPU which will cover the other PCI slots), this motherboard is a really solid bet. It will be futureproofed with AMDs Ryzen 3 technology, so has loads of potential there. RAM support is great and over locking is super simple. It really is made for tweaking with bios support for novice OCers. Voltages are robust and at this price point Im struggling to see why I would even consider upgrading to newer mobo given prices versus performance across generations. For a no nonsense, solid motherboard, your search stops here.
