3 out of 5 eggsCheap with a caveat.

Pros: Cheap board with good overclocking potential (see cons).

Cons: There is no heat sink over the mosfet based buck power supply next to the cpu socket. I ended up frying that section runing my fx 8320 stock. I had to replace all of the fets to get the power supply section functioning again.

Other Thoughts: Not recommended for 125w cores.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy unless you enjoy returns

Pros: It worked for a couple days, the first board

Cons: Stopped having video after a couple days on first board, RMA'd through newegg, 2nd board, no video out of box on either slot. I am running single video card, no additional power. Wish I had seen these reviews before I bought this. Open box has no reviews. Buyer beware!

Other Thoughts: I am attempting to get another replacement. I just received the 2nd board on 21August, and now newegg says out of window to get a replacement as of today and I have to go through manufactorer. :(

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Joy,

I am sorry that you are having difficulty with your motherboard and the inconvenience it caused you. Have you checked if your video card is defective? Often times one component can be overlook which is the main source of the issue. If you are convinced that your motherboard is defective, you can always submit an RMA and have it replaced at http://www.asus.com/us/support. Feel free to contact me at cl-justin@asus.com and I will help you to the best of my abilities. Your case # for reference is N150877400

Thanks for choosing ASUS

Regards,
Justin

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Board Except

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: Have a video card that blocks the PCI Express slots. Have a sound card that's PCI express. Have have maybe a quarter inch room between the two. Had to side the sound card way over and screw in. Otherwise the video card fast rub on the sound card. And you can hear when the video card fans turn on.

4 out of 5 eggsSome issues

Pros: Decent board for the cost. It has lots of bells and whistles, however, I don't overclock so I haven't tested a lot of it out. I've enabled the charging feature to charge a cellphone (it's disabled by default) and I find the outlet still charges faster.

Cons: This board does not agree with my video card, a Radeon R7 260X. I've read that there are issues with any of the R7 series. I've been researching it for months, and I *may* have the solution. The screen will just go black and the HD will continue running at the same speed, about a half of a beat.

When changing out a CPU cooler, the plastic nub that the brace holds onto, broke off. However, Asus did not charge me for a physical repair and the turnaround time for the warranty service was very reasonable.

Other Thoughts: Also, the rebate card offered with this board is a scam. I hope NewEgg sees this. They do not send you the card, then when you call America Express, they pass you to Asus, and Asus was no help at all, passing me somewhere else multiple times, until you just give up. They will not check on it and they definitely will not send a replacement card. Check around the internet, there's mention of this scam everywhere.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked great....till it didn't...

Pros: This motherboard started out great....

Cons: ....then it died, no post no reason it just stopped working. Tech support was great till the asked for the serial number, I emailed multiple images of the motherboard but no sticker with SN which "voids" the warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat do you expect?

Pros: It's a retail ASUS motherboard for seventy dollars. If you have built more than a single pc or two then you know what to expect. It works just fine. Understand most reviews come from novices or first time builders. You don't need a static strap to create a safe build environment and the chances of ANY bad retail board are very slim.

Cons: Zero.

Other Thoughts: A very fair deal for a retail ASUS motherboard.

1 out of 5 eggsTrash MB got a dead one

Pros: User guide well written. Got it fast

Cons: Sigh... I installed everything properly by following all the user guide. When i started my system, nothing. No BIOS, No beep from the speaker, No signal on my screen. I tried another graphic card still have the same issue. I tried to remove all my RAM to hear à loud beep from the speaker: nothing. I cleared the CMOS and tried to remove all the residual energy in the system: nothing. This BOARD is TRASH and i should have listen to the reviews. I went to my informaticien when my system doesn't want to start. I paid 50$ to him and je confirmed that my motherboard is dead. Wow 50$ + the price of the BOARD for a brand "new" motherboard. When i asked my informaticien to take a look on my system i though that i had miss something somewhere like a connection but not my motherboard.

Guys it's an advice don't buy this motherboard if u don't have time. For sure newegg told me that they gonna give back my money or exchange it. But i still paid 50$ to have a diagnostic and this is not refound.

It's also frustrating because i'll have to wait 2 weeks for the return, check, and shipping.

I'm not sure if i still wanna risk my chance and order the same one again.

Anyway i heard that theres a lot of doa on that board.
