4 out of 5 eggsGood easy build

Pros: UEFI bios, came with latest bios installed so no flashing , support disk came with latest divers , all in all seems like a pretty stable start for a good build. Like the usb 3 didn't even have to hook up any of the onboard usb 2 connectors.

Cons: Glad I took time to do a little research , Asus site , Newegg reviews , the MOSSFET does come with a light layer of film protection so be sure to remove it before power up. during post all led's will show red and not green not a big deal but all works fine, the main led stays green.

Other Thoughts: Yes I would recommend this for a decent budget build , does have over clock potential ,not used for this build.Built for my father in law , he's not a gamer so the board is kinda over kill for him but does have the ability to take on some future upgrades.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASUS Customer,

Thank you for taking the time to write this informative review. Please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience. Is your motherboard able to POST? Clear CMOS and see if the board will POST. If it will not, use one memory module in the slot furthest from the CPU and see if that helps. Please double check each cable on the motherboard including your 24pin/8pin power plug connectors. Please make sure all your GPU connectors are firmly installed and that all your SATA drives are receiving power from your PSU. We appreciate your feedback on this matter and I will be letting the related department know about the issues you are experiencing for continuous improvements to ASUS Support. If you need a help with any technical questions or general inquiries about ASUS Warranty Services, you can reach me at

Thank you for choosing ASUS!

Best Regards,
ASUS Customer Loyalty – US Support

5 out of 5 eggsSolid!

Pros: - Awesome BIOS with an easy to navigate GUI
- Overclocking capable
- Reliable
- User manual is very detailed
- Cost effective option for gaming/overclocking

Cons: - Power connector near the CPU is in an awkward location for my case. Still accessible though.

Other Thoughts: I'm currently using this board with a FX-6300 and Radeon HD 7870 - both components have mild overclocks. Absolutely zero issues with dependability after 6 months of constant use. I'd recommend reading the manual when setting up for the first time to ensure proper connections are made. The manual also specifies which DIMM slots need to be utilized when only using 1-2 sticks of RAM (it matters). Overall, I'm very pleased with this board and would buy another.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Board

Pros: I bought mine second hand but only after doing some serious digging here on Newegg. I had a ASRock board with a 990FX Chipset and I wasn't having much luck with it, so I picked this one up for my initial 8320 build. I ended up with a dead CPU thanks to the ASRock, so I picked this up while awaiting my new 8350 to arrive and I'm happy to say everything is fantastic now with a 8350. Great overclocking features, I'm at 4.65GHz at 1.4V on water. My DDR3 1866 overclocks nicely as well after bumping up the FSB. Another great thing about this board is the level of power control you get from ASUS's Digi-Power control. Let me tell you, I can't speak enough praises about this. Nearly everything about the power delivery system to the CPU is adjustable within the BIOS. I can see why ASUS has a good thing going when it comes to overclocking and this Digi-Power system. The LED indicators for part failure are also nice, and the one touch buttons on the motherboard to reboot direct to BIOS are also very handy if you are running the board outside of a case. 4 ram slots allow for plenty of ram expansion, and a generous amount of SATA ports make this the complete package. I've not tested the CF support on it, but I don't really need a dual GPU setup, however, i'm sure it works great.

Cons: The only thing I can say about it, the VRM Chipset HS/Heat Pipe config gets rather hot...especially the bottom piece. If you have the ability, and can find parts to do so, it might not be a bad idea to add this to a water loop if you are planning on overclocking, or find some way to get the air moving in that area because it does get rather warm.

Other Thoughts: I would buy this product 10 times over. It has just as many features, IMHO, as more expensive 990FX boards without the associated high cost. Build quality is very good and the features are excellent, probably more than I will ever use to be honest (Optical Audio). USB 3.0 support is also nice for quick data xfers and having a USB 3.0 header is very nice for cases that have front USB 3.0 support. This is a fantastic board at a great price, if you are looking to get into the AMD FX line, look no further, you've found your board.

5 out of 5 eggsReally nice motherboard!

Pros: -Clearly labeled headders and buttons.
-Lights that display the functionality of other components (failed, functioning, etc)
-Lovely colours.
-Lovely bios.

Cons: -I feel like there could have been some warning in regards to the small plastic cover over the "DUAL INTELLIGENT PROCESSORS" heat spreader. Had my system not had a side window, it may have eventually caught fire, or melted onto my GPU.

Other Thoughts: The only issue I have had with it was that protective plastic on the silver engraving. Honestly it wasn't needed. It was the only part with it, and it was so cleanly placed with no indication that it even existed, that both me and my roommate (Both computer technicians) did not even notice it. It would have been a serious problem had my case not been built with a large viewing window on the side. [I saw the plastic bubbling up and peeling and had to stop mid game to turn the system off so I could remove it safely]

Maybe don't put potentially flammable, potentially meltable clear things without removal tabs on one small part of motherboards from now on?

4 out of 5 eggsCover your back, get the Extended Warranty - otherwise, decent motherboard

Pros: - great for those who want an ASUS MB w/ a 990FX chipset but not the pricepoint of a Sabertooth or a ROG Crosshair V Formula-Z
- backward compatibility with older CPUs

Cons: - questionable build quality
- had to RMA this as the first MB threw a solid CPU_LED; wouldn't POST at all - blank screen. must have been a bad socket because I've tested the memory, cpu, power supply and video card on a working MB and made sure all components were compatible.

Other Thoughts: - first make sure the MB posts and build the system up, one component-at-a-time, before installing into your case as you may get a bad build.
- good thing I considered the bad reviews to brace myself for a potentially failed board.

5 out of 5 eggsA lot for the money, a good stable board when setup correctly.

Pros: It's a good stable board. I have two, one of which I have had running for 2 years 24/7 as a home server. It's had a SATA card in it at one point with a total of 9 drives attached, 4 port Intel NIC, 32 gigs ram, constant use running 4 virtual servers (WIN 2012R2) in VMWare ESXI and it takes all in stride. Even doing a mild OC to 4.4ghz. I just bought another and moved the 4 data drives over from the other one, and made a NAS with it using NAS4FREE. Yes, it accepts ECC unbuffered RAM, which is what I am using, and it is reporting the 72 bit memory, which makes this setup a steal for home use over what you would need to spend to get similar from Intel. CPU in the first one is the 8350 Vishera, and the new NAS has the 6300 6 core Vishera, way more than I need for the NAS, so it runs cool and quiet. (Also 95w vs 125 for the 8350). So it provides ISCSI to the VMs in the older build and backup room for personal data. No kids it's not flashy, no fancy colors or glowing lights and it's not for extreme OC, but it will provide a solid platform for a reasonable cost, paired with a reasonably priced AMD processor. Even helped my sister build a similar setup at her house and hers has been UP for over a year similarly burdened, with no issues.

Cons: It is not flashy, and is not for extreme OC, if you could call that a CON.

Other Thoughts: Highly recommended for someone on a budget who wants a machine they can use for general purposes and then game on it (with an appropriate video card and PSU) without spending triple what it sells for. If you want cutting edge, get a Maximus board, INTEL cpu, water it and OC the heck out of it. Otherwise, put the dough into a good video card and PSU, pocket the rest and use this board with an AMD Vishera cpu,

5 out of 5 eggsStill going after 1 year

Pros: This board has been solid for a year. I've been quite pleased with its performance and it's overall stability. Still paired with the AMD FX-6300 CPU and 4 GB GSkill Ripjaws RAM 1333.

Using stock cooler, for an overclock test, I was able to overclock the CPU to 4.6 GHZ, but will need to upgrade to a better cooler as the temps are at 61°C at Idle, but was happy the system was stable as it was my first overclock on a CPU. When I upgrade I'll probably to a medium overclock to about 4.4 GHz. I don't want nothing to extreme.

Cons: Intermittent USB 3.0 controller failures. Sometimes during reboot, the controller won't reinitialize, and Windows only sees the 2.0 ports. A second restart fixes the issue. This only happens once every 6 months so I'm not complaining. Others have had this issue and it seems related to the PSU not giving the entire system enough power. My 600W Power Supply is over 8 years old, and the fan grinds, so hoping a new power supply fixes that issue.

Other Thoughts: I really love this board, despite the minor USB issue. I want to buy another one before they are discontinued.

I highly recommend this board.

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Easy to set up, good features. Good upgrade for faster processor down the road. Started with 6300.

Cons: No pins in USB 3 header for front. Returned and replacement ok. On new motherboard I found that if you remove the front USB 3.0 header the plastic retainer came part way off with the cable. When reinstalled the cable clips in but no 3.0. Removed cable and found the plastic retainer not glued down and have to push it back down.

Other Thoughts: Would buy again but think about the Sabertooth also.
