 A word of warning... by Rik Davnall

If you want to use this MB with a PCIe gen 3 graphics card (particularly Radeons - I was trying to use a HD6670), you'll need to update the BIOS to the latest version (F9 at time of writing). It took a while to figure this out, too. Apart from this issue, the board's perfectly functional, but you can save yourself some major headaches by paying just a tiny bit more.
