5 out of 5 eggsSolid Mobo

Pros: I got this 2 and a half years ago. The PC runs all the time and has never given me a reason to change it. I am going to upgrade in a little bit but only so i can get something faster. Otherwise i have no complaints. I've changed out hard drives and dusted it out several times. It also survived a blown powersupply.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard!!

Pros: Another good product from ASUS. I have several and they have all been quality. Easy to set up, really nice BIOS, great onboard sound, but will be upgrading for front panel support. NOT overclocking this board so I cannot comment on that. Went with AMD FX 6-core proc. Everything is easy to access. Great driver support from AMD on this chipset. DID upgrade the BIOS after installing, there was a new update that added some new features to the BIOS. Version 2501 as of this review. Easy Flash upgrade using a flash drive.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Good purchase for all you AMD fans out there. Good benchmarks for this board and the FX processor.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Job ASUS!!!

Pros: Easy to set up. No problems whatsoever. This has the best and easiest to use bios I have ever used. Easy to overclock!!! So far I have only overclocked my AMD FX 6300 from 3.5GHZ to 4.2GHZ without any voltage increase and no stability problems. Overclocked through bios. Took 30 seconds. I have not tried to go higher yet as I am still getting to know this board. So far I am thrilled I bought this board. Also, this board runs at 27C under load. That's about 6 degrees cooler than my last board and I'm using the same case. Idles at 25C. Physically its the highest quality board I have handled.

Cons: Only 1: The RAM slots are pretty close to the CPU socket. To be exact, the first slot is 1.25 inches from the CPU after being mounted in the socket. Therefore clearance with your RAM is an issue if you have a faily large heatsink for you CPU. I got lucky. I have a Zalman heatsink that is round with a 92mm fan (exactly like the ZALMAN CNPS9500 AT if you want to look it up to have a good reference). I installed GSkill RipJaws RAM. They are NOT low profile and came within 1/4 of an inch from touching my CPU heatsink. If you use a square heatsink or one larger than my Zaman I suggest using LOW PROFILE RAM to avoid clearance issues.

Other Thoughts: This board comes with two USB 3.0 ports. However, There is an internal plug to add more USB 3.0 ports if you need more. Of course you will have to buy the extra 3.0 ports if your case doesnt have them already.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible asus customer service

Pros: looks great.

Cons: for now, it gets 1 egg seeing how I can't even start with step one of the build since the i/o shield is nowhere to be found in the retail box. contacted asus and they won't send me one for the board because "they can't". Rep said to buy it on their estore and I couldn't even find it there. I shouldn't have to buy something that was supposed to be packaged along with the board.

Other Thoughts: Pitiful customer service from Asus.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: Great motherboard everything works well. GUI BIOS helps as well as providing some minor tools for overclocking things.

Cons: Problem I had was installing Evo 212 heatsink and fan, it took up the space over one of the ram slots which as of right now can't be used. Just the proximity of the RAM slot to cpu.
