being a desktop form factor is a negative? your reviewing a desktop motherboard.

Maybe "- Desktop PC" is confusing, change it to "- Office PC".

 Need a real review
I understand this is a basic review but this motherboard is geared to gamers so all of the other benchmarks you have mean nothing. Second, this board was designed for the FX chips, I know a phenom works but it would be nice to see a Vishera chip in the tests. Also who games at 600 x 800? Try using a graphics card that is up to date. My HD 7770 mid to low end GPU is faster. And last, You missed a lot of features on this board like the ROG connect and others that are geared toward gamers. If you are not a hardcore gamer you should not be looking at this board. If you like AMD and are a serious gamer this is the cats meow.
