4 out of 5 eggsNot a Sabertooth. But close.

Pros: Wasn't DOA!
Beefy heatsinks.
4.2 ghz stable OC on fx6300
Running almost 24/7 2+ months straight on air cooling.

Cons: Cheap and fragile feeling SATA ports.
Few and oddly placed fan headers.

Other Thoughts: Always-on mining box with a Radeon 6950.
Held up nicely.
Takes overclocks and heat like a champ, so it may be good for the budget minded gamer as well.

2 out of 5 eggsOnboard LAN Not Reliable

Pros: Bought M5A97 R2.0 in June 2014.
Onboard LAN worked intermittently during the first month and was OK until it completely failed in April 2015.

Cons: Bought M5A97 R2.0 in June 2014.
Onboard LAN worked intermittently during the first month, then was OK until it completely failed in April 2015.
Call ASUS customer service who suggested to purchase and install a new network adapter (first option with such a high level of confidence) or go for a RMA. It seems like ASUS is well aware of the problem... Of course, for a product that came half dead on arrival, I am going with a new network adapter that I will be purchasing out of pocket. I don't have anytime for RMA...

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We are sorry to hear your experience with the unit and the support line.

I want to help you with this issue. What are the steps that you have done so far with the unit after you called the support line.

5 out of 5 eggsUpgraded my rig-- GREAT Mobo!

Pros: I upgraded from 'Asus M5A 78L-M LX' to this board. Running an AMD FX 4130. I never had an easier time with installation.


-Plenty of connectors
-USB 3.0
-Outstanding BIOS and integrated software.
-Ram capacity
-Came with 2 additional Sata III cables

Cons: -The USB 3.0 port is a bit flimsy during install of cord.

Other Thoughts: I have had ASUS boards for a long time. I have not had an issue with them yet. And they have always proved sturdy and capable.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard

Pros: No problems, plenty of USB headers and SATA ports. The BIOS has an awesome feature called boot override(allows you to temporarily change the boot order and is very convenient when installing windows) I plan to use this motherboard (or its successor in future builds.)

Cons: NONE

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing board that has worked well

Pros: It works. It has support for USB 3.0 (and front panel headers). It has plenty of expansion boards and SATA ports. The BIOS has a feature called boot override that lets you chose which drive to boot off of(for the next time only) without changing the boot order.(e.g.:plugin USB windows installer, enter bios, override boot to the USB, and you don't have to go back and change BIOS settings). Plan to use this motherboard (or a successor to it) for future builds.

Cons: NONE

1 out of 5 eggsHELP!...ASUS!

Pros: Seemed be best for the AMD FX8320

Cons: Seems DOA. Hands in "Setup is preparing your computer for first use".

Other Thoughts: Finally got the chance to build the PC. Had to order a new case as it did not fid the mid-tower I had. Now, I've tried everything...swapped hard drives, used two different Windows 7 installation types (clean install from upgrade media and win 7 full retail). Looked online to see how others resolved problems, tried tweaking. Nothing!!!! Even cloned the drive from the PC I was replacing. Windows finally booted up. But...network, DVD, video either did not work, or worked at a bare minimum. Windows rating = 1.0 due to graphics (installed XFX Radeon R7 240).

I'm thinking...this board needs to be replaced!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I had to get a replacement after I messed the first one up. This motherboard gets the job done well for the price. It's pretty roomy with how things are placed and the colors are nice too. No other problems so far.

Cons: Had to get a replacement after I easily messed the first one up but after that I had no problems.

Pros: 6 SATA ports, 4 RAM slots(up-gradable to 32 GB), USB 3.0, this thing has everything I could ever need and works flawlessly.

Cons: Haven't found any cons as of yet.

Other Thoughts: This has been the greatest motherboard purchase I have ever made. Everything runs beautifully and I am very happy with it.
