This has been a real pleasure to work with. I’ve been very impressed with the performance and value of this board. It’s really only limited by the APU. If you set this board up with a powerful graphics card then you will have a very powerful gaming machine that will fit into a small form factor.
When you take into account that the Intel boards that fit into this category are much more expensive then the value of this board really stands out. It also competes very well against similar AMD boards and also brings some really nice features to the table. For a solid system that is able to perform at this level is really impressive. It’s not often that we get in a product at this price that is able to give such an incredible performance.
This board isn’t going to appeal to everyone. There are those that are going to want to really get more performance from their processor and the processors that this board supports just can’t do that. AMD still has quite a lot of work to do in that category. As far as graphics go though, this board is more than capable of delivering some really good performance. If you are looking to do more multi-tasking and multi-threaded applications then I recommend looking at Biostar’s TA990FXE motherboard that features AMD’s AM3+ socket. You can pair this board with an AMD 6 core processor and a solid graphics card for all around performance. This board definitely qualifies for our Hot Product and Top Value awards here at Motherboards.Org.
