4 out of 5 eggsopen box of cra% New one works well

Pros: It worked and well except no USB. Updated bios using ez flash never done before very easy. Unlocked x3 450 no l3 cache.oc'd no problem

Cons: No usb working at all. Had to send back and eat shipping return. I thought they tested open box items. I was a little upset they sent me someone else's problem. You can't review the actual open box item that's why I'm here.

Other Thoughts: I ended up returning the open box item and ordered the retail box version. the board worked well, it would just crash if I turned on USB in bios. I couldn't live with that and didn't want to waste a slot on a USB card. So hopefully the unopened box will be a fully working board. I know it happens, I just feel like the egg tried to slip one by me, so hopefully the new order will come with some redemption.

UPDATE: The new one works well unlocks my ph IIx3 to 4 core 3.8ghz! My bad review is directed towards the Egg not asus or this product. it has sep sata ports for sata and ahci devices. my dvd drive would not work on ahci enabled ports from the bios its a good solid board cpable of unlocking and oc'ing good for a budget build-high end for my budget!

4 out of 5 eggsNice board w/ features

Pros: Comes with a number of features considering the price and capable of overclocking CPU quite nicely -- my FX-6300 went to 4.5GHz easily and remained stable.

Cons: Only supports 8GB of RAM with only 2 DIMM slots

Other Thoughts: No USB3 support; no eSata port -- Get a 970/990 chipset motherboard if you're looking for these options.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Price.

Cons: This board failed to power up after just few month of regular use, the rest of the components are fine. i sent it back for repair and it was returned to me because it couldn't be delivered to the supposed address that they provide me with the RMA. I couldn't be more disappointed with the service support.

2 out of 5 eggsUSB device over current status detected will shut down in 15 seconds -.-

Pros: Solid capacitators and supports crossfire

Cons: Sure, it supports crossfire. It also has solid capacitors. I mean yeah thats really good for this price point, but is it really worth the hassle over something like this happening? Now don't tell me I have to take out my front case usb plug out. I've tried it, also tried restarting the CMOS, along with taking out every usb device, and even tried replugging everything into the motherboard. And best of all, it still doesn't even detect my keyboard.

Other Thoughts: Was really looking forward to using my computer :/

1 out of 5 eggsjumped to quick to review.

Pros: The pros of this board is its upgradable, raid support is tricky to get working and if it lasts then you got a good deal. Funny, threw the box out with Christmas trash because it was working good. NewEgg has good customer support. Giving a store credit so I can updrade to a better mono.

Cons: The con's are the power led and reset button don't work. My board lasted about 9 days before no longer posting at startup. Not sure what is up with that.

Other Thoughts: Not sure what went wrong, but monitor no longer gets signal, lights on MOBO turn on, HDD spools repeatedly, CD burner spools up, USB peripherals light up. But no posting. Its a phantom. Never had a computer buy the farm... But it did.
