Need inputs/thoughts on this board. Have zeroed it down after searching for the following features in an ATX form factor: My prerequisites for new motherboard were: USB3 (with front panel header on board to as to make the front USB3 ports on my Corsair carbide 400R support USB3) HDMI or at least DVI At least 1 PCIx1 slot. At least 1 PCI slot. Gigabyte (as after sales of it is good in my country. Intel OR AMD was not a priority. Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 has all I need, only 1 problem: It is not ATX so the space between the PCIX16 slot and PCIX1 slot is very less. I don’t think I’ll be able to install a meaty gpu if I have my Asus Xonar DX installed in the PCIx1. This is not a deal breaker since I don’t intent to game for time being but having future headroom is always pleasant This board is pretty cheap for the features it offers: All solid caps Superior VRM cooling USB3 (with header onboard) HDMI I wonder why this matx board has an 8 PIN power connector because AFAIK the 8 PIN connector is usually found in over clocking boards. (My IP35-E had one) I really like this but wonder why this board has one. Does this mean it can over clock well? The CPU I’ve narrowed down is: AMD Athlon II X3 440 Rana 3.0GHz Socket AM3 95W Tr... Bang for buck tri-core but I guess it’s hard to find. Any thoughts are most welcome. Thanks.
