Great price on sale as part of combo deal, Lots of nice features on the board, some legacy support for things like Ide drives and such. Full size atx board, nice layout, Usb3 and Sata3 supported
Kinda weird that I had to use the card they included with package to get full use of the pcie 16 x slot, fir video card
I like the board especialy for the price ! It has all the features I was hoping to get. Everything works so far no complaints, allthough the bios isn't as nice as other boards I've used for builds, it has a full compliment of tools for use.
Combined with the AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Quad core
Processor, general uses are fast and adaquit for some time to come. The person I built it for wanted it mostly for word processing, movie playback, and some light gaming. Huge improvement from her old E Machine and she was able to even use her old Ide drives as extra storage. If she outgrows this machine she has some room for ugrade also if needed, and MB has plenty of OC tools to play with if she wants. I wasn't able to get much from the forums about the board, so I was a little nervous about purchase. She's happy and now that I've used the board , I'd use it in a similar $700 +- build again! there's allot of bang for your $$$ hear!

Easy set up. decent price point. Huge amount of options in bios. Overclocking is fairly straight forward
No drivers available on site, manual is very sparse. Very little information online. Odd cool and quiet setup. little support from Customer Service.
Honestly I'm not very impressed with this board. I have purchased MSI and ASUS boards for $60-$70 that make this board seem like it is very expensive.

There is nothing on Sapphires website as far as drivers go. The manual hardly explains anything and god forbid you lose the drivers cd.

The other thing I noticed is by default the cool and quiet setup keeps your CPU fan off for the first little bit of boot into windows and sometimes longer. This causes the fan to kick into a hyper drive later which makes it loud till it cools enough and resumes normal speeds.

There is a confusing amount of options in BIOS. Though this is nice for overclocking it's not great for trying to navigate. Especially without proper documentation or community support.
Another thing is theres a few LEDS on the board that come one, stay on, flash rapidly, or slowly. The board has no reference to these nor does the manual or any google searchs. So I'm not really sure what their for.

Unfortunatly I just cannot see myself recommending or buying this board again. I'd much rather get an ASUS. In fact I will most likely be replacing this on my next round of upgrades. Which will be sooner than usual.
