3 out of 5 eggsBroken USB 3.0 header pin

Pros: Nice BIOS.

Cons: Had this for a couple months, worked ok until I unplugged my USB 3.0 I/O case panel cord and found one bent pin in the motherboard USB header. Not sure how that got bent, I was very carefull in inserting the cord and tried to gently to straighten back in place but the pin just broke off making the USB 3.0 connection totally useless. The whole point of buying his board was for the USB 3.0 capability. I'm going to sell this boad as is and get something else. Also, I find the board to be very flexible when plugging and unplugging some cable, very cheap feeling.

5 out of 5 eggsReplaced a faulty Biostar board with this one

Pros: It has a lot of nice backup features. I haven't had a chance to check out the front panel audio. This board is arranged like someone actually put thought into where to have the connections. My other board's audio pins were as far from the top as it could get and I could not get to them without an extender.

Cons: None that I can find as of yet.

Other Thoughts: Protip: If you have the drivers of one motherboard on your HD and you put in another one that needs different drivers, back up any important files first. You will, most likely, have to reinstall Windows because your hard drive controller (HDC) wil not see the drive with the new board. Every board I've replaced in the past was the same and this was a new experience for me. I wound up copying everything over to another partition with DOS in command line. Luckily, I always partition my hard drives.

4 out of 5 eggsGood board so far.

Pros: HUGE value to price ratio, got it on sale for 60$ and has alot of features of 100$+ mobos.

Has a pretty good and basic bios, usable for anyone that lacks in basic bios setup like me.

Supports my fx 8350 and doesn't get hot.

Cons: Since I installed it I get random freezes, where I can't move the mouse, ctrl alt delete, and the only option is to hold the power down. But I just followed reviewid=3972564 advice so hopefully that will fix it.

Its a pretty big con but other than that this board does everything that I want it to.

Other Thoughts: Had to reinstall windows (not really a con but I wish I knew that before I took my old mobo out.)

If reviewid=3972564 advice doesn't work then I will update the review for customer service from asus.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent mobo

Pros: Mothboard booted up and worked well out of box... had to install drivers for usb 3.0 to work however.

i currently have my amd 6350 overclocked to 4.3 ghz in there and with turbo it boosts to 4.66 i believe. Temperatures seem good cpu never goes above about 44C with my cpu cooler and mobo temps never spike above about 54... curious why everyone says not to overclock this board from everything I've read those values are all well in the tolerable limits.

Cons: the layout of this board is pretty bad... you can't use the pci slot for a wireless or anything if you have a large gpu. and i pretty much had tolerance issues with every component lol.

3 out of 5 eggsGood MB; No USB 3.0 Header

Pros: Solid Motherboard. USB 3.0 built-in

Cons: Good motherboard, but limited (thus the "LE"). I found it surprising that it has USB 3.0 ports, but no header for a case USB 3.0 plug. This Motherboard was sold with a case that had a USB 3.0 plug, but the MB did not support the header to make it active. Ended up purchasing a USB 3.0 PCI-e card that had a header for the case mounted plug.

5 out of 5 eggsFirst board, no problems

Pros: Has everything I need. 3 Case fan headers, and a CPU fan header. Actually got it because it has 3 case fan headers and my case has 3 fans. The UEFI Bios is really cool. I don't overclock, i haven't read much into it so I wont try it, but from the looks of it, it shouldnt be too hard.

MOBO doesn't exceed 30 degrees, although it's winter and i don't expect anything in the case to go anywhere near overheating.

Cons: No USB 3.0 headers. Not a problem for me, but for others this is definitely a con.
Single BEEP on post for 3 reasons. A memory issue (Didnt have one), No Keyboard/Mouse Plugged in (Had them plugged in), and because fast boot was disabled. That might be annoying for some people, because if you don't enable it, you'll get a beep on POST every time. I enabled mine because the beep was annoying.

Other Thoughts: This is a great board, I'm kind of loyal to ASUS because my first computer was ASUS, they make pretty much everything besides memory and power supplies lol

3 out of 5 eggsGood mainboard for price.

Pros: This is a simple motherboard that fit the processor I chose. A amd fx8350 black. Even though I don't plan to over clock it. Just run it stock. It had plenty of c-mos options. I was thrilled to see a built in com port for a optional cable. I use a 9 pin serial port for a hobby so it saves me from purchasing a pci express serial card.

Cons: Not any I can think of.

Other Thoughts: none

1 out of 5 eggsFaulty

Pros: ---

Cons: This motherboard came in faulty and it only responded to the power. I think the one I received had a faulty connection because I tried two different graphic cards and both responded to having power but nothing showed up on my monitor. Also the USB on the board did not function at all, there were no response from my mouse or keyboard when plugged in.
