5 out of 5 eggsNice Board

Pros: 4 fan headers, 4 memory slots, the blue is actually kind of cool looking, ASUS bios does a good job of handling the FX-6300 CPU.

Cons: No USB 3 header.

Other Thoughts: decent cheap mobo.

5 out of 5 eggsASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AM3+

Pros: Good price for a good card!

Cons: I didn't check the specs correctly, USB3 in the back. I bought a case that had USB3 on the front panel (this is on me).

Other Thoughts: Great card for the price. Looks like ill need to get USB3 to USB2 cable to connect panel USB to the board.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Gaming Board

Pros: PC Specs:
AMD FX-6300 @ 4.0 GHz
G.Skill Ares 8GB @ 1600
M5A97 LE R2.0
Rosewill Capestone 750w
EVGA 660 ti 2GB

The BIOS is super easy to understand and work with especially when overclocking. After having it for a couple months I can say this board is solid. Whether you want to OC or not its still good for the performance even without the vrm heatsinks. I get 60+ fps in all my games! Except when there's too much going on at once which is normal. Like Gmod :P

Cons: No USB 3.0 header (I knew when buying) If you want to overclock I'd recommend getting vrm or MOSFET heatsinks so you can get a stable overclock.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful Motherboard

Pros: Durable
UEFI BIOS
PRICE
Reading the reviews, I was skeptical to get this mb. But, I took the chance, put it together with the rest of my bundle (6 Core AMD, 8GB DDR3), and have been using it perfectly fine ever since. Love the BIOS, not sure what people mean by it being slow, works perfectly fine for me. As for the IO shield, it did fit kind of weird (I had to slightly bend it to fit it in), but it fit.

Cons: IO Shield fits kind of weird. Not a big enough problem to take off a egg, and it did fit after slightly bending it.

Other Thoughts: Love the UEFI!

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Mobo

Pros: I'm glad I got this mobo as my first. It's a pretty decent one. I would say I'd like to have more fan connectors. There's only 4 on it (including the CPU fan). Overall, it's pretty strong - haven't had any problems with it and I've had it for over 3 years.

Cons: - Needs a few more fan connectors.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking to buy a somewhat cheap mobo, you should get this one. This one is definitely worth the cost. It's one of those "you get what you paid for" kind of products.

3 out of 5 eggsGood for running an office computer; don't use it for anything more intensive than that.

Pros: Nice and cheap!
Hasn't fried on me yet
TONS of SATA Ports! 6!
8 Channel Audio

This is my second review of this board.

Cons: NO heatsink on the Voltage Regulator Module!!!
Unstable, poor choice for running ANY sort of games.
Overheats, and drops the CPU voltage to prevent it from frying. I have the AMD FX-8350, Waayyy too much for this motherboard. Going to have to buy a new one

Other Thoughts: Pay the extra 80 bucks and buy your self a REAL Motherboard. Worth the money.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value

Pros: If you are looking for an build with all the bells and whistles at an economy price this is the way to go.

Cons: The memory slots were difficult to get the sticks fully seated. The sticks didn't "snap" in like I have found on other boards. I think the problem is partially caused by that side of the board has no support and bends a bit. (see other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: First time I fired it up got error beeps that indicated it didn't recognize the ram. I had bought 2133 sticks and was afraid the board wasn't happy with it. Tried moving the jumper to clear the bios, but still no joy. I then tried moving the jumper and removing the battery for a few minutes. That did the trick.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Mobo!

Pros: This was my first time installing a motherboard, and I didn't have too much trouble with it, as everything is labelled pretty well. Performance after over 6 months of ownership is still great, nothing is worse than it was when I got it. It works perfectly for what I use it for which is predominantly gaming.

Cons: The back plate, as others have said, didn't fit too well. I think I have a USB device holding my motherboard to the back plate design. It should also be noted that there are no USB 3.0 ports in this mobo, I don't use them, but I think it should still be mentioned.

4 out of 5 eggsAfter 2 Years

Pros: Everything runs smoothly, great and friendly

Cons: gradually, as time passes, some of the slots begin to be unreadable and unusable. Like the ram and video card slots
