5* Good Value Bundle
Reviewed by Dave on 27/11/2011
Despite the text stating this is ready to rock, you have to fit the cpu, fan etc. Never the less its a good bundle with the speed increase that I hoped for. The board has no ide connections and the ide/sata converter I used to connect my old IDE drive was not recognised by the motherboard.
