Released April, 2010
The Pros:Very cheap option for those seeking USB 3.0. Pretty good overclocker for a cheaper microATX board. Great cooling--the northbridge stays at very low temperatures even at high loads.
The Cons:SATA ports get covered with a larger GPU installed. May need to upgrade the BIOS in order to unlock 6-core processor support.

As an AMD-based product, any socket AM3 processor is compatible. This includes 45nm Phenom II X6 CPUs, AMD’s modern 6-core chip. A Radeon HD 4200 graphics card is built-in, meaning those interested in playing 1080p videos or Blu-ray Discs will be able to enjoy HD media out of the box. However, a free PCI Express x16 slot is available for a graphics card upgrade if required. USB 3.0 is built-in to the motherboard, while Gigabyte’s 3x charge mode is also supported.

DualBIOS function does a good job of recovering your BIOS, saves a lot of hassle.
Good RAM performance and compatibility--detects higher-clocked RAM better than most basic boards.
SATA ports get covered with a larger GPU installed.
May need to upgrade the BIOS in order to unlock 6-core processor support.
