Pleasantly surprised by the quality of this motherboard it has a good sturdy weight to it and doesn't feel like its going to snap when inserting the CPU cooler or memory modules. I found it very easy to install in my case and the provided instruction manual is very clear in its instructions. Be aware that the board uses both an 8 and 4 pin CPU connector at the top edge of the board that does sit quite close to the pre-installed shield of the back plate. The first M2 slot has a nice cover over it which gives the motherboard a very clean look it's just a shame one couldn't have been fitted to the second slot. Very pleased with my purchase and would definitely recommend especially for the price.

Difficult to say too much about a motherboard, it was easy to install, easy to configure and although the drivers came on a cd (manufacturers need to stop doing this) up-to-date drivers were easy to find on the internet and installation was a breeze. Even bois updates were really easy. So far I'm really happy with my purchase.

Really good value product. The instructions weren't great, and there was no space to plug in my thrid case fan, but everything else seems to be fine.
