Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good little board Bought this motherboard to replace worn out amd 2x64 prossesser from 2007 I already had new power supply, i purchased a samsung ssd to go with this kit Fan and heatsink and 8gb ram already attached to board so hardest thing to do was wire the power switch and front leds which was easy, powered up first time no problems on fresh install of windows 10. Came with driver disk so easy to get sound and usb ,ethernet going etc I did find hdmi did not work with latest driver from internet, but works perfectly with driver on disc. Runs quite quick on internet browsing and installing programs good bundle for the price Does compete with first gen i7 which i was suprised in head to head comparison i got a windows rating of 5.7, running an ssd

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for overclocking Bought this to replace my out of date tiered board. It's a good package and comes with the 8gb of ram already installed aswel as the cpu and heatsink. I have it overclocked from 3200mhz to 4000mgz with the standard cooler that it comes with and the temps only raised a couple of degrees ( I do have 3 case fans) for the price this board really performs. I don't have the best graphics card and still run a min 30fps on most games.

Will Gigabyte RX 460 WF2 OC-4Gb fit

Asked by: wills
Yes, I am pleased to advise this will be suitable for a Gigabyte RX 460 WF2 OC-4Gb. Presuming the case you use is big enough for the card also.

Do I have to update the OS from windows xp or will it work anyway

Asked by: Al Pincerna
In order to take advantage of all the features and benefits this modern equipment offers you would need to utilise a newer operating system than Windows XP. You would need to reinstall your operating system regardless, you cannot simply place your old hard drive onto new hardware.

I recently purchased this item and followed the instructions detailed in the book but I can't seem to power up the computer. The green light for the onboard led indicates that power is reaching the motherboard but nothing else happens ? Can you advise.
