2 out of 5 eggsGreat while it lasted

Pros: Runs fast, runs well. No cooling issues. Easy installation and setup.

Cons: I expected at least 5 years of life out of it but it only gave me half of that. Lasted 2 years 8 months until the PC began rebooting every few minutes, sometimes even before Windows loaded. Replaced with a ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX and everything works perfectly now so I'm sure the problem was the M5A97 motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Mobo for budget build

Pros: Almost the same as a ASUS M5 97 R.2. Only Differance is no heat sink on powere section, not need if not heavy OC. No Front 20 pin USB connector, and only 3 plug adui no optical audio. $ 20 cheaper

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I own 3 Asus m5 97 r2 and bought this for a budget build for a neighbor. It is great Asus quality, and has Uefi bios which allowed OC ram ti 2140 mhz

2 out of 5 eggsPossibly PCIe not working

Pros: It was in a bundle and priced right.

Cons: Everything powers up EXCEPT the graphics card. It powers up long enough for the fan to start to spin then stops. I have swapped PSUs and graphics cards and nothing will work. I even switched to the x4 slot, the fan powers up with that, but still no graphics.

Other Thoughts: I'm going to RMA this for a MSI or Gigabyte

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Board

Pros: Very solid basic board, paired very wel with my FX 6350 and ASUS gtx 750 ti. I would recommend this board to anyone that is looking for a basic gaming or workstation pc build on a budget and not looking to overclock the CPU or anyhting, as it lacks VRM heat sinks..It has a really cool UEFI BIOS that is very user friendly. The PC always fires up for me everyday and is used average about 16 hours a day. I haven't had a hitch yet and highly recommend this..

Cons: Lack of VRM heat sinks,, but cant shave off an egg for that as i am not looking to overclock anything as this board isn't meant for it. Also the lack of USB 3.0 header, which is also expected from a lower end board.

Other Thoughts: It is a great reliable board with nice blue aesthetics, runs and gets the job done efficiently as long as you don't try to turn anything up to 11.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great motherboard, but I exchanged it for the N82E16813131873.
I should have read the description a little closer!

Cons: I exchanged it because this one didn't have the connection for the USB3.0 port located on the front of my tower.

Other Thoughts: A few extra letters in a part number can make a big difference...

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great for me! Gaming Rig

Pros: Works great, the 970 chipset allows my fx 6300 to run like a champ. Setup was easy and the first time I hit the power button was the first time it powered on! No problems at all on my end, so I'm weary to the fact that others seem to have so many problems. I haven't had to update the bios yet or anything.

Cons: I haven't been able to get the usb 3.0 to register yet. I'm going to update bios and see if that makes a difference.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat MB

Pros: Easy setup, comes with 2 SATA cables

Cons: none thus far

Other Thoughts: Bought this MB with an AMD 6300 CPU for my first time building a PC. Everything worked great, the software that comes with it is great for adjusting fan speed at different CPU/MB temps, and monitoring voltage and temp.
