This mobo is amazing. It can OC whilst being perfectly stable, has a freaking dragon on it, and is great for the money. I don't care that I spent $100 on an FM2+ mobo, I don't spend all of my money on a CPU and GPU and then stuff in a crappy case, psu, and ram just for the sake of fitting it in a budget. Balance is key in order to get performance and stability. Yes, I'm looking at your/buildapc and how you tell people to get an i5 and a $30 mobo just to be able to stuff in a 970 or whatever. The only downsides are : only 4 sata cables, comes with mediocre at best software, and only has a 100 MBps onboard network adapter.

Nice motherboard but it lacks some basic necessities such as USB 3.0 and front panel connectors that WON'T be blocked by a second GPU, if you happen to CrossfireX.
Overall, the BIOS is easy to work and there's a lot of great features to enjoy.
Wishing there was more fan headers though.
