A good value motherboard (especially if you're a bat)
Reviewed by . Review Posted 23/12/2014
4 5

The primary reason I bought this, A88X chipset, motherboard was value for money and it seems very good. I've installed both Linux and Windows 7 and it's worked perfectly. No problems with BIOS or drivers etc. The only fault so far is with the nuts on the VGA connector constantly coming loose. If you're fitting a monitor once that shouldn't be a problem but if you change monitors fairly frequently it's very irritating. My only other gripe is the colour. That might seem trivial at first but believe me black motherboards are a real pain. A black motherboard with black sockets, supplied with black SATA cables with black connectors fitted inside a black case is a recipe for a nervous breakdown. Seriously I had to use a ****ing torch during the build. Never again!!!

  • Overall 4*
  • Ease of use 2*
  • Value for money 5*
