Great Board! 9/27/2020 11:25:19 PM

Overall Review: Don't bother with the CPU2 power. I was missing cables for it, and it didn't even seem necessary. Everything was really easy to install and the BIOS, drivers, and support SW all seemed pretty good. Love the Mystic Light options to give it that special look.
