Pros Good intructions (use the book, not the quick guide or your memory and graphics card might have issues). Lots of room for expansion. Runs stable. Supports dual cooling fans.
Cons The USB pins could have been just a little further from the edge. For an FX, you will need to make sure it has current BIOS. Also seems slower than the ASUS, but it also doesn't keep crashing like ASUS
Summary Good mid level MOBO. Bought at FRYS with BIOS already updated (worth the extra $10.) "Military" statement laim, this is not military grade. If you are upgrading, this will require a full size chassis (one reason I bought it). Read the book before you install, and you will avoid most issues people have. I took a star off because it is a tiny bit slower tham my ASUS that died after one week.
