It's good! It comes with a core unlocker, which is a great boon for a motherboard and is from a reliable manufacturer.

Could probably make a very reliable quad core for under £200 at this price.

Hot Motherboard!


got the full atx of this. great board

Got this motherboard and unlocked the extra core on my AMD Athlon II X3 445 3.1 GHz

When I have the space I'll build a PC, but at the moment a laptop will have to suffice.
Would be nice to have a decent rig to do video encoding though.

Does it support sound through the hdmi?
