4 out of 5 eggsDecent price, decent board

Pros: pretty much as I expected. Worked well out of the box.

Cons: Not a huge con but their was not a support post hole at the corner of the board where the memory is located. You need to be careful when adding/removing memory from the board. if you look at the top down image listed on the product page you'll see is not there.

Other Thoughts: I bought this as an upgrade to my son's intel dual core. It's been running a week or so with no problems. Windows will need to be reloaded. Also if you are upgrading from an older system like I did make sure you have a sata DVD drive if you plan on reloading windows that way. His was an old IDE dvd so I ended up having to convert the CD to a Thumb drive to reload windows.

3 out of 5 eggsMixed feelings

Pros: Good chipset, fairly expandable, generally good quality of manufacturing.

Cons: Installation can be frustrating. The IO shield provided did not fit the case and, after getting curious and playing around with it, did not fit any cases I own! I ended up not installing the IO shield which bothers me (more than it probably should but whatever).

In addition, the holes in the motherboard were off from the case's standoffs by a thick 1/32". I ended up pulling one standoff out that had no hope of getting attached. Again, not a huge issue, but disappointing.

Other Thoughts: There are too many great motherboards for me to strongly recommend this one. Go with another.

4 out of 5 eggsOverall Good Motherboard for the price

Pros: Part of a combo I purchased. Good design albiet from a few ports they could have added to it.

2 out of 5 eggsGood...for a while

Pros: Easy to set up, inexpensive. Worked well for what I used it for - a server.

Cons: After recently upgrading Ubuntu, system wouldn't reboot. Won't even boot to BIOS setup. Asus tech support useless. Not worth my time to try trouble-shooting. Will probably buy a better quality board next time.

2 out of 5 eggsNot mad just disappointed

Pros: The Price was right for the features I was looking for and It was an Asus.

Cons: Something is flaky with the socket so chip didn't seat properly and spent and hour trouble shooting. Thought it was DOA...

Loud humming from speaker from integrated sound which is fairly common on cheaper motherboard that I have work with.

Having issues with integrated network adapter.

Not a fan of the back plate.

Die hard Asus fan and rather disappointed with this motherboard. Probably wont but an Asus board again.

Other Thoughts: I have only had this board going for a day I am hoping that everything will work out alright.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Motherboard - Asus Quality

Pros: Nice layout, easy to setup, good features for a mid priced board. Used these to update my kids PCs - set up one with a new FX-6300 and the other with an older Phenom II CPU and they both turned out great. Used Corsair and G.Skill RAM and both worked well. Loaded with Win7 and didn't have any problems.

Cons: I don't care for the narrow board where the edge isn't supported by the third row of screws - this board hangs over the second row of screws and the back edge of the board is unsupported - just be careful when plugging in the power connector (support the board from below with your fingers). Other than that, no complaints.

Other Thoughts: This board doesn't have the internal USB3.0 connector - but I knew that when I bought it.

5 out of 5 eggsASUS comes through again

Pros: All the 6g Sata ports to start off, this board has enough to run the NSA.
Excellent layout (apart from one area, I'll explain later)
Bios is amazing.

Cons: I only have 1 con, and that is the placement of the CPU power plug (not sure of the technical name for it) it is located up and to the left of the CPU heatsink and fan, I have to run my power cable across my RAM to plus it in. It's something I could've seen before I ordered the board so it didn't lose any eggs for that.

Other Thoughts: I've never had problems with ASUS products, my last motherboard had 3 ounces of apple juice spilled on it and it worked for another 3 years.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent motherboard

Pros: Lots of fan headers and simplistic design. Enough clearance for my cpu cooler and rams to be next to each other.

Cons: No usb 3.0 header. When I first bought it, I spent hours trying to find it and came to the conclusion it didn't come with one as it was my first newbie build.

Other Thoughts: Would actually read the specifications of the mobo next time so this doesn't happen again.
