well it's a mainstream board, and at least its PCIe 2.0, remember, "Mainstream"

thats some funky Northbridge cooling tho :|

it doesnt perform very well compared to that gigabyte board, but hey, for only $70 you can put up more money on a gfx card or CPU

nice review :)

Also, keep in mind that the 570 board has had tons of time for the BIOS and drivers to mature. That's often in the difference in cases like this. For around 70.00 this is a great value board.
