Never heard of the brand but apparently the mobo heatsinks are too big and some people cant fit decent heatsinks to it with the quick research i just did. So that pretty much ruins the motherboard. But if you can somehow measure it up and check if a heatsink you like fits then go ahead and buy it because apart from that its meant to be a nice board.

To be honest I don't see whats special about it. Seems like any other x48. I agree you are probably better saving money on a quality p45 from a known company.
