3 out of 5 eggsStopped working after 11 months

Pros: Well it worked this long never had a single problem with it.

Cons: Stopped working after 11 months. I expect longer than this I will be going to Gigabyte or MSI.

Other Thoughts: I have heard a lot if problems with this mobo and displaying. I turned my PC on and no display.

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.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Great, but Spend A Little More

Pros: Runs my overclocked AMD FX-8320. Holds my RAM and graphics card.

Cons: $10 more gets you the non-LE version, which has the front USB3 option, and a better sound card.

Other Thoughts: I like this motherboard. It works well with my components (AMD FX-8320, G-Skill Ares 1866MHz RAM, Asus R9 280) once I updated my BIOS, but $10 more would have gotten me a better board.

1 out of 5 eggsTrash

Pros: Inexpensive.

Cons: I originally bought this card for a family member's PC, which I didn't have a lot of money to build with. I thought this would be a great deal. It worked nicely for a couple weeks but then took spells on whether or not it would power on and post. About a week after this problem started, it just went out while being used. It hasn't powered on since. I had a friend who recently bought this card as well (before mine went dead, I recommended it because of the low price point.). His card came DOA.

Other Thoughts: This card isn't worth the gamble. If it works, it works fine. Nothing special like the higher end cards, but fine. The card is so inexpensive that it quickly jumps into a whole new price point when you have to ship it back for RMA. In my experience 2/2 boards of this exact model have not lasted 3 weeks. I have always liked ASUS, My own uses an ASUS mobo and ASUS GPU, but this leaves a majorly bad taste in my mouth.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: Easy and fast install, fast speeds, easy clocks. Board went right in without any problems, posted first time and every time after that so far.

Cons: No IDE, but who cares. i'll just get a drive case to get files off my ancient IDE drives.
I have no clue why everyone is having issues My FX processor had no problems.

Other Thoughts: I have no clue why everyone is having issues My FX processor had no problems. It posted with correct Voltage and Speed at first post.
I did have to update the Bios, but that's all.
I even put in some memory that was no on the compatible list, but the creator had others that were compatible, and low and behold it read it correctly.

1 out of 5 eggsFX-8350 is apparently too much for this Mobo

Pros: Clean

Cons: Recieved first mobo dead
Recieved replacement mobo and still would not post

Did a search on google to see if this was a common issue, it was.

Other Thoughts: Heads up to everyone looking at this mobo, be weary that its hit or miss whether it will work or not.

I took it to a computer shop, and they said they stopped buying these exact motherboards for this very reason. The price is low, but this is a good example of why you should not go cheap if you want quality.
